Statement on actions taken in relation to Portland St property in Dartmouth
Halifax Regional Police are providing a statement in relation to actions taken on property in Dartmouth related to the recent mass shooting.
We have had reports from members of the community that they are troubled by the presence of some signage on one of the properties in Dartmouth belonging to the person responsible for the recent mass tragedy in Nova Scotia. The property is located at 193 Portland Street. Due to the extraordinary nature of this event and the impact it has had on the community, in an effort to mitigate any potential public safety issues, the Chief of Police used appropriate police authorities to have the signage removed from the property.
“We recognize that communities have been deeply affected across Nova Scotia and the country,” said Chief Dan Kinsella. “This step to remove signage from the Portland Street property was taken due to the unprecedented nature of this tragedy and in the interest of public safety.”
