"STEP UP and BE SAFE" pedestrian campaign, Monday, November 6, 2017 through Sunday, November 12, 2017


"STEP UP and BE SAFE" pedestrian campaign, Monday, November 6, 2017 through Sunday, November 12, 2017

Sunday, November 5, 2017 - 5:14 PM
Traffic Services:  416-808-1900

Improving road safety and traffic flow for pedestrians, cyclists and motorists, is one of our goals in support of the Service priority and commitment to safe communities and neighbourhoods. This initiative is part of the City of Toronto - Vision Zero Road Safety Plan. Vision Zero is a comprehensive five-year (2017-2021) action plan focused on reducing traffic-related fatalities and serious injuries on Toronto's streets. The plan prioritizes the safety of our most vulnerable road-users through a range of initiatives.

The “STEP UP and BE SAFE” pedestrian campaign will begin on Monday, November 6, 2017 and conclude on Sunday, November 12, 2017. November, the month that daylight savings time is introduced, has traditionally been the month when pedestrians are involved in the most collisions. The Toronto Police Service will continue to be diligent and promote education initiatives and associated enforcement strategies to enhance pedestrian safety within our communities.

Collision analysis has shown that pedestrian fatalities represent approximately 60% of yearly traffic fatalities in Toronto. A total of 28 pedestrians have lost their lives this year. This represents over 57% of the total of all traffic fatalities in Toronto so far this year. Seniors, in particular, are among the most vulnerable sector of road-users. To date, there have been 13 senior pedestrian fatalities representing 46% of pedestrian fatalities in 2017.

All police officers and Parking Enforcement Officers will be paying particular attention to those motorists, cyclists, and pedestrians who commit offences in the vicinity of pedestrian crossovers, crosswalks, intersections, school zones (particularly primary schools) and crossing areas frequented by seniors. Pedestrians are encouraged to avoid using distracting electronic devices when about to interact with vehicular traffic.

Fraud investigation into moving and storage company, One man and two women face 37 charges


Fraud investigation into moving and storage company, One man and two women face 37 charges

Thursday, October 26, 2017 - 3:01 PM
Financial Crimes:  416-808-7300

On Tuesday, October 24, 2017, members of Toronto Police Service Financial Crimes and the RCMP executed simultaneous search warrants in response to numerous fraud allegations from members of the public. The investigation, known as Project Haul, is being conducted by members of the Toronto Strategic Partnership and has been ongoing since April 2017.

It is alleged that:

- operators of Green Moving, Capital Moving, Homeland Moving, Landmark Van Lines, and Ryder Moving, defrauded victims via an organized scheme to obtain household property on the pretence of providing moving services

- personal property of victims was loaded on to a moving truck, but would never arrive at the agreed destination

- victims would eventually be contacted and advised of a revised fee, which was two-to-three-times the original estimate

It is further alleged that:

- the operators had no intention of honouring the original fees quoted

- victims would later be advised that if they did not pay up, their property would be destroyed

- many victims have been left destitute, having moved a great distance only to be left, literally, with just the clothing on their backs

Acting on these complaints, investigators attended at the Green Moving warehouse at 380 Tapscott Roadand seized property that allegedly belongs to some of the complainants.

A second search warrant was conducted at a residence in the Don Mills Road and Lawrence Avenue Eastarea to recover further evidence.

The recovered belongings have been taken for storage at the Toronto Police Service Property and Evidence Management Unit, pending return to their rightful owners. The return of such a large amount of property to owners across Ontario and throughout Canada is beyond the capabilities of the Toronto Police Service.

To facilitate the return of belongings, the Canadian Association of Movers generously arranged for the shipment of goods back to victims, courtesy of their partner companies. These shipments will be completed in the coming weeks in time for the holiday season.

Mesut Vatansever, 46, and Rahime Vatansever, 45, both of Toronto, were arrested and each charged with:

1) seven count of Fraud Over $5000
2) eight counts of Possession Property Obtained by Crime Over $5000
3) Fraud Under $5000
4) Possession of Property Obtained by Crime Under $5000

Gizem Uzum, 22, of Toronto, was arrested and charged with:

1) two counts of Possession Property Obtained by Crime Over $5000
2) Fraud Over $5000

They are all scheduled to appear in court at Old City Hall on Friday, December 22, 2017.

Residents of all provinces are reminded to understand their rights under provincial legislation within their own province and to take precautions when contemplating the use of any company providing moving services.

The Toronto Strategic Partnership is a collaboration of the Toronto Police Service, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, the Competition Bureau of Canada, the Ontario Ministry of Government and Consumer Services, the Ontario Ministry of Finance, the U.S. Federal Trade Commission and the U.S. Postal Inspection Service.

Victims who believe that they have been defrauded by a moving company are also encouraged to notify the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre.

For more information, please contact Staff Sergeant Carolle Dionne, OPP Provincial Media Coordinator, at (705) 329-6878.

Human Trafficking is a local, provincial and national problem that affects the most vulnerable in society. Operation Northern Spotlight demonstrates the need to work together with other Police Services and community partners to effectively investigate these heinous crimes.

Police would like to encourage all affected individuals to come forward and report Human Trafficking occurrences to police. We want to make sure that everyone has access to support services and an exit strategy regardless of their decision to proceed criminally.
