Detective/Constable Calvin Bulbrook, is with the District Offender Management Unit of the Halton Regional Police. He goes after people who don’t want to get caught.

Bulbrook came to the Regional Police from the Toronto police force where there was a similar program doing very well. He convinced the Regional police to go with it – and so far it is working quite well. There was one instance where an individual who knew he was wanted decided to turn himself in before he made the Friday Fugitive feature.

Another who was featured one Friday was hassled by parents and friends to turn himself in and get his picture out of the paper.
