BARRIE POLICE SERVICE
Barrie Police Service participated in Operation Impact from Friday, October 6th to Monday, October 9th, 2017. Through enforcement and education, the roadways in the City of Barrie are that little bit safer.
During Operation Impact officers laid the following charges:

- 1 x Distracted Driving- Cell Phone
- 2 x Seatbelt infractions

This initiative was designed to remind people that an essential part of the enforcement job is to save lives and reduce injuries on our roadways. Educating the public in safe driving practices is a priority. The focus was on behaviours that put drivers, passengers and other road users most at risk: impaired driving, seat belt use, and all aspects related to aggressive and distracted driving.
