Damage to Election Signs

Posted on September 22, 2021

The Owen Sound Police Service continues to receive reports of election signs within the city being damaged, tampered with or stolen.  Police want to remind residents that it is a criminal offence to tamper with election signage.  Persons could face charges of theft, mischief to property and trespass by night.  A criminal record will negatively affect a person’s ability to obtain employment and may also prohibit that person from travelling internationally.  The actions are in no way worth the consequences.
