HRM Partners in Policing are issuing a Wanted List in an attempt to
catch people with outstanding arrest warrants.
UPDATED March 30 2011
A man has been arrested less then 24-hours after his information was included as part of a list of people with outstanding warrants.
Yesterday, HRM Partners in Policing released the High Risk Enforcement Action Team (Heat) Outstanding Warrant List to the public for the first time. Each list contains up to ten people who have warrants for their arrest and are believed to reside in HRM, and all avenues to locate them have been exhausted. As a result of the list being released, 19-year-old Bryden Grant Mader turned himself in to New Glasgow Police this morning.
Officers assigned to the HEAT Unit are currently in New Glasgow and will be transporting Mader back to Halifax where it is expected he will attend court. The list is available on the Halifax Regional Police website at www.halifax.ca/police/HeatList and will be updated to reflect today’s arrest.
The HRP/RCMP Integrated High Risk Enforcement Action Team (HEAT) is
responsible for executing warrants within HRM as well as other areas,
and facilitates requests from Parole and Probation Services. Every two
months, the team is creating a new Wanted List made up of people with
outstanding arrest warrants whom police have been unable to locate.
Whether the people turn themselves in, or we receive information on
their whereabouts from the public, the goal is to locate and arrest each
person on the list.
The list is available on the Internet at
www.halifax.ca/police/HeatList. A release will be issued and the
Internet will be updated when a person on the list is arrested.
HRM Partners in Policing remind citizens not to approach these
individuals or try to take matters into their own hands. Anyone with
information on their whereabouts is asked to contact Halifax Regional
Police at 490-5016, RCMP at 244-7208 or anonymously through Crime
Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or online at www.crimestoppers.ns.ca.
