Gun Amnesty Regina
The Regina Police Service is working proactively to address the issue of gun violence through a Firearms Amnesty Program.
Firearms related calls and seizures of firearms increased dramatically in 2016. In order to help combat the increase, the Regina Police Service wants to raise awareness about the potential risk of unwanted firearms in our community. Unwanted firearms can fall into the hands of criminals by way of break and enters, thefts or accidental loss. Reducing the number of these firearms in the City of Regina will have a positive impact on community safety.
In 2016, there were 141 violent offences involving a firearm. This is a 94% increase from the five-year average. There were also 343 firearms seized over the same time period in the city of Regina. That's a 31% increase over the five- year average. There were 55 firearms reported stolen in 2016. That compares to 35 from the previous year. These figures represent a 57% increase in stolen firearms.
From February 1st - 15th, 2017, Regina residents are encouraged to contact the Regina Police Service to surrender their unwanted firearms, replica firearms, and ammunition. NOTE: We do not want members of the public transporting firearms to the Regina Police Service. Improper transportation of firearms presents a safety risk and can result in potential criminal implications. Police Service members will go to pick up unwanted firearms from the homes of residents who wish to surrender them. From Feb. 1st - 15th the Regina Police Service will not pursue any charges in relation to the unauthorized possession of firearms that are surrendered as part of this amnesty initiative. Surrendered firearms will be checked by police to determine if they are involved in any ongoing investigations. Firearms will then be destroyed. The Regional Crown Prosecutors office and the Chief Firearms Officer are supportive of this program.
Our City of Regina partners including Regina Transit and the Community Services Department will be participating and providing an incentive for members of the public who voluntarily surrender firearms. Those who turn in unwanted firearms will have the option of receiving a one-month Adult Leisure Pass or a 31-day Adult Transit Pass as an additional incentive.
If you want to get rid of an unwanted firearm, please call the Regina Police Service at 306-777-6500 and let us know that you have a firearm you want to get rid of, under the Firearms Amnesty Program. Police Officers will come pick up the firearm from you, safely. Please do not enter the Police Service Headquarters building with a firearm.
The Regina Police Service is asking Regina residents to keep a watchful eye on their property or place of residence. We have had several reported instances of mailbox thefts in apartment buildings lately. The thief will be looking for anything with your name and banking information on it.
Here are a few ways to try and keep your identity safer:
If you have information pertaining to a crime, please call 306-777-6500 to report it to police or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
The Regina Police Service would like to advise the public of a computer virus that has attacked local businesses in recent months.
The type of virus, commonly called “ransomware”, works by encrypting files on the user's computer system and then holding them hostage until the user pays a fee to have the files decrypted. This is not a new type of computer attack but has become more prevalent globally in the last few years. The virus is usually installed unknowingly by the user. Examples of how this can occur include visiting a compromised website while using the internet or opening a link or attachment from a unknown email address.
Once the virus is installed, a message will usually appear on the monitor advising that the computer has been infected and the user will have to contact an email address for instruction on how to restore the infected files. The perpetrators of the attack will then direct the user to pay a ransom to have the computer files restored. Once the ransom is paid a decryption key is provided to the user to unlock the computer system and/or files.
In the attacks recently reported to the Regina Police Service, the user has been directed to pay the ransom in the form of cryptocurrency called “bitcoin” however other payment methods such as iTunes cards or Amazon gift cards are also common.
The Regina Police Service does not support “paying” the ransom in these types of incidents as there is no guarantee that perpetrators will provide any means to unlock the infected computer system. There is also no guarantee that the infected computer system or files will not be corrupted or damaged after they have been decrypted.
The ransoms in these types of attacks can vary in value from hundreds to hundreds of thousands of dollars. In addition to the potential money value being lost to pay the ransom, victims of this type of attack also face the monetary cost of replacing computer systems and loss of revenue if the business is unable to operate due to an infected computer system.
The Regina Police Service strongly advises the local business community and general public to be proactive in maintaining a high level of cyber security. Regularly backup your computer system and update malware and anti-virus software. Also, be vigilant when using the internet and be cautious of opening email from unknown senders.
Thank you Ken for everything you have done for the Uplands Community Association over the last 38 years!
We are upgrading the playground at Bothwell Park! The park area will be closed for construction starting today. The new playground is anticipated to be completed in early October, weather dependent. This playground upgrade will make for a better play experience for the young kids in our community.

March is Fraud Prevention Month
March is Fraud Prevention Month, and the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre (CAFC) will be sharing a "Scam of the Day" every weekday for the month of March. We will be sharing these scams, with the hopes of educating the public and preventing a few fraud cases.
2015 Quick Facts on Scams (Stats are for Canada):
If you know someone who might be a victim of fraud, helping them with reporting the incident may help them from losing more money. Many victims who are being scammed, especially through the romance scam, will deny that they're being scammed. Supporting them and helping them rather than making them feel bad can help them tremendously.
If you have been a victim of fraud, please call the CAFC toll free at 1-888-495-8501 or online at Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre and, if you live in Regina, report it to us by coming into the front desk of our Headquarters office, located at 1717 Osler Street. Officers are there for reports from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. every day.

Pack the Cruiser Police Partnership
On Saturday, February 6th, 2016 and Sunday, February 7th, 2016, RCMP "Depot" Division and the Regina Police Service will have members at the Sherwood Co-op Grocery Store on Albert Street & 25th Avenue, standing by with SUVs open, shoving in as much food as they can fit into the SUV, for the Regina & District Food Bank. The idea came to one of the current recruits at the RCMP Academy who saw it on social media and wanted to organize one here before graduating. Officers will be parked in the parking lot from noon (1200hrs) to 5:00 p.m. (1700hrs) both days, accepting donations and cramming the cruisers full. The goal is to fill multiple loads and help the Food Bank as much as they can.
The public is encouraged to help out if they can and drop off goods and come say hello to the officers. Kids will be able to check out the police vehicles and see what it's like to sit inside, as well as receive police swag from both services. There will be a brief media event at 12:00 p.m. on Saturday February 6th, 2016, and members of the media are encouraged to attend.
Breakfast will be held at the Uplands Community Centre on Saturday, February 6, 2016 from 10:00am to 12:00pm. Must have a valid annual community membership. Membership can be purchased at the breakfast for $5.00.
The City of Regina has decided to refurbish the two courts at Mount Pleasant for tennis. The tennis courts will be updated this year, with the hopes that they are ready for play in late summer or early fall of 2016, depending on the construction schedule/delays and weather.
Internet Dating Scam
There are many legitimate dating websites on the internet. Unfortunately, all of them are vulnerable to the SCAM ARTIST. Over the years many victims have been scammed by mates they met on these dating websites. Almost all the victims are female. It is, almost always, difficult to convince the victim that their potential mates scammed them. The suspect is so smooth and convincing; the victim may send hundreds of thousands of dollars overseas, sell their homes, cash in their life savings and still believe they will have a relationship with the suspect someday. It will not happen. You will never meet the suspect or see your money again.
If you meet someone on a dating website, NEVER send the person money, especially if they claim to be outside the country. Sometimes the suspect will convince the victim that they need money to leave their country to come meet the victim. Sometimes they need money for a business venture in the other country and they promise to pay the victim back. Whatever the scheme, the victim will never see their money again, once it is sent overseas.
Due to the fact that some people are hesitant to send money outside the country, the suspect may set a person up to accept the money in Canada. This person will re-direct the victim's money to them to the overseas country. In most cases this middle person is also scammed into thinking they are working for a legitimate company or business person.
Rules for NEVER BEING SCAMMED (by someone on a dating website)
The City of Regina is planning to replace the play structure in Bothwell Park (94 Bothwell Crescent). The existing play equipment will be removed and new play equipment will be installed.
