Oct. 7: Police Update

Weekly police update on Oct. 7: new corporal, report procrastination, animal season, and school zones.

Vanderhoof’s RCMP detachment lodged 78 files — below its average of 90 — and 19 prisoners — a little higher than normal — last week.

 

New to town

Cpl. Cameron Fergusson will be joining Vanderhoof’s RCMP as a General Duty supervisor later in October — more information to come.

 

Procrastinating to report

The police reminds the public to report incidents right away, to better assist with investigations.

“For example, it’s easier to track a black car that pulled away five minutes ago versus a car that left three days ago,” said Cpl. Wade Harvey.

 

Still animal time

As moose and deer hits continued on the road on Highway 27 to Fort St. James, as well as on Highway 16 towards Prince George, the police advises the public to stay mindful of animals at this time of year. ATV patrols by the RCMP in the region’s trails will also continue.

 

Behaving in school zones

Police enforcement in school zones will continue as back-to-school season enters one month, though most traffic has been keeping under limits, Harvey said.
