Superintendent McCormick continued: “People standing as candidates in our elections or involved in canvassing are a key part of our democratic process and it is unacceptable when they become the subject of abuse.  The Police Service is committed to ensuring all candidates in the upcoming election can campaign free from harassment and intimidation. Any abuse, harassment or criminality directed at candidates or their teams is totally unacceptable and will be thoroughly investigated.”
