Tenant Incident – 2nd Floor – Leads to Arrest

https://www.citynews1130.com/wp-content/blogs.dir/sites/9/2017/09/29/file4-1.jpeg

Last night we experienced an altercation between tenants on the Second floor foyer and Amenities room.

Reports are that one party was smoking cannabis in the common area of the amenities room and deck. Party B made mention of the prohibition of smoking cannabis or otherwise be it indoor or out.

This lead to Party A becoming enraged to a point where 911 was called (Third time to my knowledge Party A has needed police presence).

By credible reports I have heard Vancouver City Police Placed Party A under arrest and was physically removed from the building. The police escort was observed via security cameras. No updates right now regarding charges or pending charges if any at all.

Please be mindful of this incident when using the 2nd floor. At this point I think it is best to make a note of the potential safety issue certain parties are to residents here.

Mental health seems to be at the root of our safety concerns, and for that there is no judgment, there is only compassion and our duty to keep vigilant with one another’s safety and well being.

Lets be mindful of the facts and of the number of incidents with Party A and do your best to avoid conflict with them. They are know to draw out a knife and make threats with it.  No one wants to see anything bad happen or to see the VPD SWAT Team with guns drawn here again to address this ongoing concern.

With sincere regards,

John – Admin @BEPRA

  1. Does Vancouver’s collective mental health remain in a state of crisis?
    Six years ago the Vancouver police declared a mental-health crisis; since then, little has changed

    “We certainly do still see a significant number of admissions to the hospital which involve mental health, and that is a crisis for everybody,” Staff Sgt. Randy Fincham, a member of the VPD’s mental-health unit, told the Straight.

    “Compound that now with the opioid crisis and addictions concerns,” he said in a telephone interview. “We know there are a lot of people living in the community with a mental illness who also have a concurrent disorder, living with an addictions concern, whether drugs or alcohol. Now the challenge is treating, not just the mental illness, but also treating the concurrent disorder. That creates significant challenges.”

    Section 28 apprehensions only tell half the story.

    A police officer can also take a person into custody under the B.C. Mental Health Act using what are called forms. There are primarily two categories of forms used by police: Form 4 and Form 21.

    In contrast to a Section 28, which is deployed when someone is experiencing a mental-health emergency, Form 4s and Form 10s are used in a proactive manner.

    A Form 4 allows a physician to order a person detained involuntarily and a police officer to apprehend that individual for the purpose of bringing them to a care facility. A Form 21 is used when a person who has been committed to a care facility—and then given—leave fails to return by a scheduled deadline.

    Like Section 28 apprehensions, the Vancouver Police Department’s use of Form 4s and Form 10s has similarly plateaued, but after an even steeper climb.

    From 2012 (the year the VPD began counting Forms) to 2019, the VPD’s Form 4 and Form 21 apprehensions climbed from 679 to a projected 1,851—an increase of 173 percent.
