Increased Security patrolling North Grenville Commercial Area

April 23, 2020

NORTH GRENVILLE, ON – With many local businesses being forced to temporarily close due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Municipality has taken a proactive approach to making sure businesses are safe and secure during this difficult time.

The Municipality has retained the services of Shield Security to patrol the commercial areas of Kemptville during the declared State of Emergency. The Shield Security team will be wearing uniforms and patrolling the community in a Shield Security vehicle.

“We want to reassure residents and business leaders that our community remains very safe, and that these measures are intended to be preventative in nature,” said Mayor Nancy Peckford. 

“We understand these are challenging times for local business owners, and recognize this is one small way we can respond to the needs of local businesses,” added Deputy Mayor Jim McManaman.

The Municipality of North Grenville is also working with the OPP to ensure that every effort is being taken to protect the North Grenville business community during the COVID-19 pandemic.
