Po­lice News

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS BRIEFS -

Mem­bers of the Regie de po­lice de Mem­phrem­a­gog (RPM) will in­ten­sify surveil­lance in school zones to re­mind driv­ers that the safety of stu­dents is not a one day or one week af­fair, only at the be­gin­ning of the school year. The re­spect of speed lim­its, school cross­ings, manda­tory stops, traf­fic lights and flash­ing lights on school buses will also be un­der the watchful eyes of the force. The speed limit in all school zones has been 30 km per hour since 2011. Th­ese mea­sures will con­tinue through­out the school year.

The RPM would also like the help of the pop­u­la­tion to lo­cate mar­i­juana plan­ta­tions or grow-ops. The cannabis in­dus­try prof­its mainly or­ga­nized crim­i­nals and the prod­ucts too of­ten find them­selves in the hands of the youth in the re­gion. Call Echec au crime at 1 800 711-1800.
