Constable Bruce Marshall was recently assigned to oversee the activities at the Carlington Community Police Centre in the Westgate Shopping Centre. Volunteers are at the Police Centre to assist you on:
- Weekdays, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

At the Centre, we take the following reports (and provide you with a case number, as required):

* You may contact the Centre to make arrangements for a home security evaluation. Volunteers who have been trained in conducting security evaluations will assist you in checking your home to determine possible entry points and any weaknesses they may have. Remember that they will go to your home at your request only and will have their Ottawa-Carleton Police Volunteer photo identification card.
* If you would like to have your child's fingerprints taken (as part of the Child Find Program), you should call prior to your visit to ensure that a volunteer who is trained in fingerprinting will be available at that time.
