Abbotsford Police are asking anyone with information about an accident that occurred over the weekend of a police car to call police.  A young male driving a black Ford pickup swiped a police cruiser at the corner of Gladwin and George Ferguson at around 3:45pm.  If you know anything or have any information please call 604-859-5225

WARNING FROM SCHOOL BOARD
I read in the paper today the school board is warning about these trips companies are offering high school students at resorts and other various venues that they are NOT legitimate school board field trips and therefore should be viewed as a safety precaution as many teens have gotten into trouble.  It went on to further state any field trip by the school has to approved by the school board and board of trustees and a permission slip would be sent home.  So parents talk to your kids and beware of these scams!
