Every once in a while a police officer does something that is out of the police box and certainly not in the rule book.

That has happened in Burlington’s police station where D/Constabe Bulbrook came up with an idea that was used when he was with the Toronto Police Service. Bulbrook worked in Toronto from 2006 until 2013 when he joined the Halton Regional Police Service.

“We used to have a Wanted Wednesday program and I got the idea of turning that into a Fugitive Friday – an occasion when we would use the media to get out the word on people the police wanted to catch.

Small click here - blackThe Halton Regional Police, Burlington station is launching a new initiative to help locate wanted persons and hold them accountable for their actions.

Al Albano, Superintend for the Burlington Station, took to the idea and the first Friday Fugitive story was published last week. Somehow the Gazette missed that media release – the police haven’t nabbed their man yet – so we have told that story below.

The second Friday special hasn’t been caught yet – but according to D/Constable Bulbrook “these things take time. If we get the pictures out there – people just might be able to tell us something.”

There are numerous people who continue to evade the police and the court system and continue to live out in our communities while having a warrant for their arrest in place.

Every Friday, the Burlington Offender Management Unit will share information on a wanted person in hopes that the public can assist in locating the individual.

The first Fugitive Friday poster boy the Halton Regional Police are looking for is:
