Joint Effort in Ducking Stool Park Clean-Up

Central Community Action Team Sergeant Scott Devine - On Wednesday the 6th of June 2012 officers from the Central Community Action Team along with our community partners from the Department of Parks attended the Ducking Stool Park, Pembroke area in response to numerous reports of groups gathering, drinking and causing a general disturbance by their anti-social behavior at that location.

With the assistance of Department of Parks personnel, the area was cleared of a large amount of property used during these gatherings, including deck chairs, coolers and barbecues, as well as trash scattered throughout the park and down onto the shoreline.

While the removal of this property should be helpful in initially addressing the situation, patrols will continue to address the persons gathering in the Ducking Stool Park, Pembroke area to dissuade any further anti-social activity.
