Busy week, RCMP sergeant says

The Compass - - OPINION -

Trin­ity Con­cep­tion District RCMP Sgt. Rick Robin­son says his district had a busy time June 10 - 17, re­spond­ing to 119 com­plaints and calls to ser­vice from cit­i­zens.

“Our rou­tine everyday traf­fic en­force­ment du­ties are not in­cluded in that to­tal,” the sergeant said. “The fol­low­ing is a snap­shot of sev­eral in­ves­ti­ga­tions over the last week which high­lights the na­ture of some calls we re­ceived and iden­ti­fies in­ci­dents that the pub­lic can pos­si­bly help us with by pro­vid­ing in­for­ma­tion.”
