TIMMINS POLICE ISSUE CLARIFYING MESSAGE REGARDING BASELESS SOCIAL MEDIA POSTINGS ALLEGING VIOLENCE

The Timmins Police Service finds it necessary to issue a clarifying and calming message to the public in regards to fictitious and baseless social media posts currently in circulation.

These posts have no investigative foundation and appear to be intended to promote public fear and anxiety.

It is hoped that those persons who received these posts will use good judgement in regards to posts that are generated with this intent.

The public is advised to view any posts of this nature on social media with an appropriate amount of careful scrutiny and skepticism.

There is no substance to these posts and no threat to public safety exists based on the content of these spurious postings.
