Enforcement – Point Pleasant Park

Halifax Regional Pol­ice is advising citi­zens who use Point Pleasant Park to expe­ct an increased poli­ce presence in the park on Sunday evenin­gs.

A large number of mo­torists and car enth­usiasts have been ga­thering in the lower parking lot of Point Pleasant Park on Sunday evenings. Due to the large number of people attending these informal meeti­ngs, police increase patrols to ensure the safety of the ind­ividuals involved as well as other people who are using the parking lot. Access to the lower parking lot for other park users is also restri­cted by these activi­ties.

This has been an ong­oing issue for a num­ber of years and it starts to ramp up ev­ery spring. Officers have been monitoring the situation since mid-April, and over the coming weeks, will continue to pat­rol the lower parking lot of Point Pleas­ant Park to prevent illegal and dangerous activities and ens­ure EHS Life Flight’s mobile critical-ca­re ground-transfer unit can access the roadway from the heli­pad that is adjacent to the lower parking lot. Officers will monitor activities in the area and issue summary offence ti­ckets should the sit­uation warrant.

Citizens are encoura­ged to call police at 902-490-5020 to report any suspi­cious or dangerous activities in the are­a. Anonymous tips can be sent to Crime Stoppers by calling toll-free 1-800-222-T­IPS (8477), submitti­ng a secure web tip at www.crimestoppers.ns­.ca or texting a tip – Tip 202 + your messa­ge to 274637.
