From Sept. 28 to Oct. 5, Trin­ity Con­cep­tion District RCMP re­sponded to 144 com­plaints and calls to ser­vice from the cit­i­zens in our district. Our rou­tine ev­ery­day traf­fic en­force­ment du­ties are not in­cluded in that to­tal. 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.
