After several reports of ‘gang’ violence recently in Brockville, many residents are voicing their concern about their children’s safety, which has caused local business owner Nathalie Lavergne to begin a group called, ‘The Brockville Neighbourhood Watch‘.
“I want to help clean up the streets and by starting the Brockville Neighbourhood Watch I believe we can make a difference by just alerting law enforcement on problematic areas,” said Lavergne.
Brockville Police chief Scott Fraser told Global News that he will not comment on the charges because he says it could jeopardize their investigation, but did say more information will be released once all arrests are made.
