At the recent Morden Police Board meeting the group discussed their 2019 plans for the Police Service and the current challenges the community is facing.

Helping protect the community takes everyone says Police Chief Brad Neduzak, and the citizens of Morden are the service's eyes on the street.

"We always encourage and ask that the public call the police if they see anything suspicious . . . we can't be everywhere all the time, and we rely on the public for that information."

Information can be anonymous says Neduzak, and even if the call doesn't lead to an immediate arrest, the information is crucial in documentation, and can be used in an investigation down the road.

Methamphetamine, or more commonly known as meth has seen increased use within the region, province, and across Canada, says Neduzak and is incredibly dangerous.

"The concern first and foremost is the danger of this drug and how people react when they are on it and their unpredictable nature. Along with the safety of our officers when dealing with these individuals, or any other staff, or organizations like the Boundary Trails Health Centre, and even citizens in Morden."

According to Neduzak one of the problems with meth is its availability, meth is easy to make and relatively cheap which is why the issue can grow quite rapidly.

Neduzak says when it comes to the responsibilities of the police board, one of the largest is to guide the planning of the 2019 year and the priorities of the service.

The increasing meth issue is just one of the areas the service is looking to address, Neduzak notes the Service will be looking at creating a strategic plan to tackle the growing meth problem plaguing the city.
