Rama, ON (Thursday, November 10, 2016) - Casino Rama Resort became aware that it has been the victim of a cyberattack that resulted in the theft of (past and present) customer, employee and vendor information by an anonymous threat agent.
Casino Rama Resort is working with the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP), the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP), the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) and the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO), and has alerted the Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada (OPC) and the Information and Privacy Commissioner of Ontario (IPC).
"Data security is a top priority for Casino Rama Resort, and we take our responsibility to protect our customers', employees' and vendors’ personal information very seriously,” said John Drake, President and CEO, Casino Rama Resort.
The hacker claims to have accessed information that includes Casino Rama Resort IT information, financial reports respecting the hotel and casino, security incident reports, Casino Rama Resort email, patron credit inquiries, collection and debt information, vendor information and contracts and employee information including performance reviews, payroll data, terminations, social insurance numbers and dates of birth. The hacker claims that employee information dates from 2004 to 2016, and some of the other categories of information taken date back to 2007.
"Casino Rama Resort deeply regrets this situation and recognizes the seriousness of this issue. Our teams have been working around the clock with cyber security experts,” stated Drake. "We appreciate the understanding of our customers, employees and stakeholders as we continue to investigate.”

Information re: Statistics Canada Census

Published on Apr 28, 2016

Tuesday, May 10, 2016 is Census Day.

Between early May and late June 2016, approximately 35,000 Statistics Canada employees will be working in neighbourhoods and communities across the country to conduct the census.
 
Residents in your community may contact their local police force to verify the validity of the activities being carried out by Crew Leaders and Enumerators.

How will I know if they are legitimate Statistics Canada employees?
Every Enumerator and Crew Leader will have an identification card that features the Statistics Canada identifier, along with his or her name, employment number and photo. Residents can contact the Census Help Line at 1-855-700-2016 if they wish to confirm the identity of the Enumerator or the Crew Leader at their door.

Will I be required to provide personal information to Statistics Canada such as my Social Insurance Number, banking information, telephone number or email address?
You do not need to provide your Social Insurance Number or banking information to complete the census questionnaire. However, you will be asked to provide a telephone number and an email address in case follow-up questions are required.

Is there a screening process for Enumerators and Crew Leaders?
In order to be considered for census positions, candidates must pass a written test, a reference check, and a government security assessment.

How does Statistics Canada ensure the confidentiality and security of information collected during the census?
Statistics Canada places the highest priority on protecting the confidentiality of individual census questionnaires. Answers collected under the authority of the Statistics Act are kept strictly confidential.
All employees are sworn to secrecy when they are hired. The Statistics Act states that employees are liable for fines of up to $1,000, and/or jail terms of up to six months if they reveal personal information.

Crime Prevention Week 2014

Published on Nov 3, 2014

Rama Police, Fire and EMS Services are gearing up to spread the message….
"Thumbs Up”
Crime Prevention Week (November 2nd to 8th)
Like tying a string around your finger to remember to buy milk at the grocery store, the "Thumbs Up” thumb band is a reminder to keep your thumbs off your phone and your eyes on the road. Our YIPI (Youth in Policing Initiative) students created posters for the launch of the campaign and our officers are distributing thumb bands during traffic stops and R.I.D.E. programs, and cautioning drivers not to text and drive.
 
There is solid research that indicates that distracted drivers are more likely to cause collisions and serious injury than impaired drivers. According to the Canadian Automobile Association, texting drivers are 23-times more likely to be involved in a collision. That is why all police services are increasing enforcement and education around this major causal factor for collisions, and why Rama’s emergency services are supporting "Thumbs Up”.
 
Crime Prevention Week is an opportune time to highlight successful partnerships in areas where the police and community work together to develop a multi-sectoral approach to crime prevention and build a stronger and safer community. This year, Rama Police have teamed up with Rama EMS and Rama Fire Rescue Service to combat distracted driving, which has become one of Ontario’s "Big Four” in dangerous driving practices. We aim to change perceptions and behaviours so that drivers become more aware that the dangers of distracted driving apply to everyone. If we’ve encouraged even one driver to think twice about picking up that phone, we may have prevented an avoidable collision, or even saved a life.
 
Thumb bands are available at the First Nation Administration Office, Rama Country Market, the Hub at the Mask or from the Rama Police detachment.

"Thumbs Up" Distracted Driving Campaign

Published on Oct 7, 2014

 
"Thumbs Up” Distracted Driving Campaign

The Rama Police Service has launched a new distracted driving campaign which aims to encourage drivers to avoid texting and other dangerous distractions while driving.

The issue of distracted driving is now one of the top traffic safety issues for all Ontario police services and the current leading cause of fatal collisions in the province of Ontario.  According to Canadian Automobile Association Statistics, you are 23 times more likely to be involved in a crash if you are texting.  No one should lose their life or suffer serious injury because a driver was not devoting his or her full attention to the road.

To encourage drivers to put an end to this dangerous behaviour, the Rama Police will be distributing "Thumbs Up” thumb bands which are meant to be worn as a reminder to avoid distractions while driving, particularly texting.  Officers will be distributing the thumb bands during traffic stops, R.I.D.E. programs, and community events around the area.  The bands are also available at the Rama Police detachment.      

Discover Policing

Discovering Policing


The Rama Police Service Wants You…to Consider a Career in Policing



The Rama Police Service is supporting the launch of Discover Policing, a Province-wide, collaborative initiative under the auspices of the Ontario Association of Chiefs of Police, which aims to attract young people to a career in policing.


Discover Policing will feature a number of social media portals where individuals interested in a law enforcement career can engage with police personnel about what police organizations are looking for in potential candidates, educational requirements, potential opportunities, etc. Individuals who want to consider a law enforcement career can connect with police personnel through three social media platforms:


Facebook: The Discover Policing Facebook page will be the primary source of information for the initiative. This page will include information about Discover Policing, provide helpful resources and links for potential candidates, links to all police agencies, and a calendar of recruitment events for police services across Ontario.

 

Twitter: This Twitter account, @DiscoverPolicin, will connect users to police personnel who can assist users with their queries.

 

LinkedIn: Users of this professional networking platform will be able to connect with police personnel and learn more about policing in Ontario.



The Rama Police Service is also pleased to announce that it will participate in the Discover Policing Exposition which will be held on October 15, 2014 at the Toronto Police College. This one-day event, which is free of charge for members of the public, will provide an opportunity for Ontario police services to showcase the profession of policing to potential candidates and for attendees to engage directly with police personnel. It will take place from 12:00 pm to 8:00 pm and feature exhibitor booths for police agencies, presentations by police personnel about career opportunities, and special demonstrations.
