A calm Halloween night for the local RCMP

first_imgAside from the call of a man down on the steps of the St. Martin’s Anglican Church, which Cpl. Shelkie maintains of significance, there were no other incidents that she says stand out.“As far as anything having to do with Halloween or anything like that, there was nothing of note,” Cpl. Shelkie explained.This doesn’t mean it was a crime free night however, as Cpl. Shelkie does acknowledge some of the calls received, albeit nothing out of the ordinary for a Friday night.- Advertisement -Some of the calls include reports of sexual assault, public intoxication, possession of a drug, loss of properly and issues pertaining to metal health to name a few.Cpl. Shelkie says the take-away from this experience indicates residents’ going out on the town get “the message” the RCMP continues driving home.“I really think the message is getting out to people that there’s safety on many levels,” Cpl. Shelkie concluded. “Safety for the children first of all in the evening, and than safety for the adults as well; if they’re going out to celebrate the occasion that they’re getting the message ‘don’t drive and drive’, and that they’re making wise choices about how to get home.”Advertisementlast_img read more
