Social Media September 2018

Return to Social Media - Month at a Glance

Back to School

The Thunder Bay Police Service Traffic Unit’s speed enforcement paid extra close attention to school zones in the first few weeks of September. Social media was used to help support the unit’s efforts in keeping vehicular speed at or below the 40 km/h maximum limits in school zones.

Three-on-three basketball

The Thunder Bay Police Service joined students at Dennis Franklin Cromarty and participated in a three-on-three basketball tournament. Teams were made up of people representing various emergency services, DFC students and LU Thunderwolves.

We were very happy to be invited to this tournament, and had a blast on the basketball court.

Breaking Barriers Update

The Thunder Bay Police Service completed the internal survey of its members, which is one of the first steps in the ongoing organizational change project.

A video produced by the TBPS and shared on social media helped provide some insight into that survey and into the continued efforts of the Shaping Our Future working group.

MMIW Powwow

Sept. 8 was the third annual ONWA Powwow for Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women. Thunder Bay Police Service A/Chief Sylvie Hauth represented the service at this event.

CBC Superior Morning Pop Up Show

CBC Superior Morning was live from the Thunder Bay Police Service on the morning of Sept. 11. The event gave the TBPS a chance to talk directly to the community about a number of initiatives.

DFC Student Orientation 

Thunder Bay Police Service Aboriginal Liaison Unit officers Cst. Bob Simon and Cst. Gary Cambly spoke to DFC students at their orientation. The two officers manned a booth at the orientation and had an opportunity to talk directly to students during the event.  

Community BBQ

Mac’s Convenience Stores partnered with TBPS’s Zone Watch program to put together a community barbecue. Between 12:30 and 2 p.m. of the Wednesday barbecue, about 56 burgers, 180 hot dogs and eight veggie burgers were served to random community members who stopped by. The food was generously donated by Mac's and prepared by their staff.

Naming Ceremony


In an effort to find a suitable name for a revamped police unit, the TBPS participated in a traditional naming ceremony with a First Nation elder. The activity was part of the service’s ongoing Breaking Barriers project and led by the Shaping Our Future working group.
