Hello from your Hamilton Crime Stoppers
Hamilton Crime Stoppers continues supporting CN Police increasing awareness about rail safety, the dangers posed by incidents of rail tampering, sabotage or trespassing. Every year in Canada, more than 100 people are killed or seriously injured in railway crossing and trespassing incidents.
We remind you that trespassing on railway property is dangerous and illegal, and you don’t want to find yourself with a $615 fine. Cross the train tracks only at designated railway crossings, and obey all the railway crossing’s signs and signals. Railway signs and warning devices are installed along roads and at railway crossings to keep people safe. Despite these warning devices and signage, incidents continue to occur.
Tampering can lead to a $5,000 fine or up to 10 years in jail.
Do your part. If you see something, say something!
Remember HAMILTON, your VOICE fights crime. So take part in having criminals answer for their actions, call Crime Stoppers with your tips at 1800 222 TIPS or submit a tip via the Crime Stoppers web and TOGETHER let’s continue making our community STRONGER and SAFER!
