In 2011, The Chatham-Kent Police Service has arrested 1,986 people to date. To provide an interesting astrological perspective, an algorithm was applied to all the arrestee’s dates of birth. Note: The Chatham-Kent Police Service does not ask an arrested person for their Zodiac sign – a simple calculation was used to create this list.
