Sept. 9: Police Update

This week, the Vanderhoof RCMP lodged 101 files with 26 imprisoned — a number doubled in comparison to previous weeks.

This week, the Vanderhoof RCMP lodged 101 files with 26 imprisoned — a number doubled in comparison to previous weeks. Most prisoners were arrested due to public intoxication and causing disturbance.

 

Drinking and driving kills for ATVs too

With the high number of deaths from ATV this year — though none in Vanderhoof at the moment — the RCMP will continue to focus enforcement and impairment investigations on ATV operation. Most of the deaths were attributed to driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, as well as improper safety equipment such as helmets.

The RCMP has received specific funding for ATV patrols to provide education to the public on new insurance laws.

 

Construction means slow down

As the RCMP continue to receive speeding complaints within construction zones, their enforcement on speed limits in those areas will also continue.
