Orangeville man gets Chief’s Award

The Orangeville Police Service and Police Services Board have presented David Van Allen with the Chief’s Award Certificate for his efforts in helping an officer who was attempting to arrest an impaired driving suspect, when a friend of the suspect intervened.

On Thursday, October 11, 2018, police received a call regarding a possible impaired driver and were given a description of both vehicle and driver. The vehicle was located and stopped a short time later on Lisa Marie Drive. While placing the male driver under arrest, a female passenger attempted to pull the officer away from the driver. The female proceeded to jump on the back of the officer. Mr. Van Allen assisted the officer by taking control of the female, who was also placed under arrest.

The Chief’s Award Certificate was presented to Mr. Van Allen at the Orangeville Police Services Board meeting at 390 C Line on Wednesday, January 18.

“We are thankful for the actions of Mr. Van Allen in assisting our officer during the incident. This award is a small token of appreciation for his efforts,” said Chief Wayne Kalinski.

Dangerous driving charge rescinded

The Orangeville Police Service has rescinded a charge of dangerous driving  laid as a result of an incident in the parking lot of an Orangeville public school.

On Thursday, December 27, 2018 at approximately 5:45 a.m., police received a report of a vehicle being operating dangerously in the parking lot of Princess Elizabeth Public School, at the corner of Clara Street and Elizabeth Street. According to witnesses, at one point the vehicle collided into a fence and two males were observed exiting the vehicle, the driver having changed places with the other male.

The vehicle left the parking lot and travelled north on Clara Street where it was located by police.

As a result of the investigation, impaired driving charges were laid against an 18-year-old Caledon male, and a second 18-year-old Caledon man was charged with dangerous driving. However, further investigation revealed that the second male in fact did not operate the vehicle, and the charge of dangerous driving against Ethan Thomas Grey was subsequently rescinded.
