2018 OACP Drive Safe! R.I.D.E Campaign

May 16th, 2018 - On May 15th 2018, the Ontario Chiefs of Police (OACP) launched the 2018 OACP Drive Safe! R.I.D.E Campaign. The theme for this year's campaign is Who's in Control? and will focus on raising public awareness about impaired driving and over-reliance on autonomous safety systems in vehicles.

In response to this campaign the St. Thomas Police Service joined with our policing partners the OPP and Aylmer Police Service to conduct a joint-forces R.I.D.E. program throughout various locations in St. Thomas, Aylmer and Elgin County.


On Tuesday May 15, 2018 at around 2:30 p.m. the St. Thomas Police conducted a traffic stop in the area of Kains St. and St. Catharine St. While on that traffic stop, a male exited a nearby residence and began to aggressively walk towards the officer. The 26 year old male started making a gun gesture with his hand and was yelling profanities at the officer. In an attempt to de-escalate the situation the male and the driver of the vehicle were asked to leave the area but the male continued at the officer getting in his face saying "make me". The man then made a serious verbal threat of harm towards the officer at which point he was placed under arrest for Uttering Threats. The accused who is currently on probation was also charged with one count of Breach of Probation. The 26 year old man was held in custody for court.
