Here’s why the Oak Bay Police department’s week started off on a ‘paws’itive note


It was a busy Monday morning for Oak Bay police.

According to a tweet from the department, a happy reunion took place at the police station between when a lost dog, who had been found and kept overnight by a resident, was brought back to her owner.

The family dog named Lily got lost late last night, and in the dark fall night, was unable to be reunited with her owner until this morning

A video shows the ecstatic family greeting their beloved pet and was posted on Twitter by Oak Bay PD.

Moments after the reunion, Oak Bay police found themselves back to work in their very own parking lot assisting a stranded motorist whose vehicle was not starting.

Though helping a broken down car is usually a job set aside for a local mechanic or BCAA, the Oak Bay PD were able to help get the car up and running again with some quick, efficient thinking and jumper cables. 

“If we had scout badges for our sleeves, this would be a good morning. Hoping to plant a tree and read to some children by noon,” reads their jubilant tweet. 

Good work, Oak Bay PD!
