I wanted to post a note on here about a new service being provided by the Toronto Police Service. It's called TPS LINKS and it finally replaces our very old but successful autodialer program. It allows for you to sign up online and receive notifications from us from local street closures to community safety issues to city wide issues. The only downfall is any voice messages you will receive from 55 will have my voice attached to it.

To sign up go to the following and click on the TPSlinks icon to follow the registration process.

Thank you for the quick response! I will keep this number handy. I didn't want to phone and waste time, but then think if he is trying to break in I would prefer to try to stop him before he makes it to someone's house.

I come from a family where anyone would appear at are door at anytime ( big extended family and foster kids etc etc) so I find it hard to ignore the door. You just never know when it is someone in need.

My dog protects me and scares most people away anyway!

Thanks again

We often have strange knocks on the door in the late evening. We go check it out, but we pretty much never open the door. It would have to be someone we know, or a child or someone in obvious need of serious medical assistance for us to open the door. I once read the riot act to someone who was soliciting funds for some kind of charity or something after dark. But that's the only time I've ever opened the door. Often by the time we get to the door there's no one to be seen!

Hi Anna

This could be potentially one of three things 1, a new twist on an old scam ask for money for gas or to get a tow, 2, He was checking to see if you were home with the possibility of doing a break and enter if you weren't. 3, he could have really needed help in which case he should have contacted us (Toronto Police).

If anyone has a suspicious incident like this please call and advise us at (416) 808-2222 and if we have officers in the area they would be able to check things out.

We had a guy knock on our door last night at 1200M said he was from up the road. I did not recognize him. He said he needed a jump and his car was up on Gerrard. We said sorry can not help. I felt bad because I could not see what the scam was for a jump. He said he knocked because our light was still on.

Officer Rob is there any strange scam going on like this? I guess it could be a mugging once you got to Gerrard or just a guy who needed help. Hate to think I didn't help if he just needed a jump.

We are on Highfield Rd.

Leslieville Local Business Marketing - 10 ways to use

When I launched this site in early 2009, one of the compelling reasons for doing so was that I was struck by how many of the businesses in Leslieville are locally owned and operated.  Another big observation was (and still is) how proud most…
