Ottawa police laid nearly 150 offences in three separate safety blitzes over the spring and summer months focusing on the city’s transit network.

Police conducted blitzes on April 29, May 20, and July 8 on local bus routes, catching people for criminal and bylaw violations, as well as provincial offence violations.

The offences range from minor ones related to bus fares under city bylaws to more serious criminal charges such as carrying a concealed weapon and aggravated assault.
