RCMP report and call for comment

They had 51 calls for service from Feb. 6-12. and the Vanderhoof RCMP wants the public to bring in any stories of positive RCMP interaction.

There were 51 calls for service from Feb. 6 to Feb. 12.





On February 10 the RCMP received an anonymous complaint of a impaired driver on Nechako Avenue.

The RCMP officer on scene was able to stop the car and noted that the driver was not impaired just driving erratically.

The RCMP then checked the other occupants of the vehicle and noted that one male had three outstanding warrants with numerous minor offenses for each. The male was breaching alcohol conditions that he was supposed to be following.

The male was arrested and is in custody pending a bail hearing.

Also on Feb. 10, after 11 p.m. a vehicle hit the ditch near the intersection of Kenny Dam Road and Stoney Creek Road. When RCMP members arrived the found a lone occupant inside and noted that the individual was impaired.

The members performed an impaired driving investigation and obtained breath samples which determined the individual was drinking and driving at the time. The driver was taken into custody and appear in court for impaired driving offenses.




Positive comments

Corporal Justin Thiessen, current commander at the Vanderhoof RCMP detachment, would like the public to bring in any stories of positive police interaction.

“A majority of the interactions are positive,” said Cpl. Thiessen. “But if the public has one in which an officer goes above and beyond in their duty or acts with professionalism or compassion, then they are encouraged to come and let us know.”

Cpl. Thiessen said that, in a career like policing, it can be hard to see positive things everyday so if someone came to the station, or phoned them at 250-567-2222 or even left a message on their website, then it would be a big reassurance to all the officers.
