Sex­ual as­sault in Cupids

The Compass - - TRINITY SOUTH -

From March 23-29, of­fi­cers with the Trin­ity Con­cep­tion District RCMP re­sponded to 112 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.

Tips from your com­mu­nity

polic­ing of­fi­cer

Al­though spring is here, we are still sub­jected to win­ter driv­ing con­di­tions. There were 32 traf­fic com­plaints re­ported this week alone. Please re­mem­ber to stay alert, slow down, and stay in con­trol — the three key el­e­ments of safe win­ter driv­ing. Drive ac­cord­ing to high­way and weather con­di­tions. Keep a safe dis­tance be­tween you and the ve­hi­cle in front of you to avoid sit­u­a­tions where you may have to brake sud­denly on a slip­pery sur­face.
