The Trin­ity Con­cep­tion RCMP an­swered 112 calls for ser­vice dur­ing the week of Jan. 25-31 , 2012. 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.

Calls for ser­vice in­cluded 15 false alarms, 21 traf­fic re­lated com­plaints, and 16 mo­tor ve­hi­cle col­li­sions.

Jan. 25

• Scrape those win­dows! Hop­ing the win­dows will de­frost on the way or hop­ing the snow will blow off is a sure way to cause a col­li­sion. Frost re­flects glare from the sun and makes it im­pos­si­ble to see. En­sure you scrape the frost and al­low your win­dows to clear be­fore ven­tur­ing out.

Com­mu­nity polic­ing events

The RCMP will be host­ing a hockey game against the As­cen­sion Col­le­giate high school team on Feb. 25 at 6:30 p.m. at the Bay Arena in Bay Roberts. As part of the Bay Roberts Win­ter Car­ni­val events at the sta­dium, RCMP mem­bers are look­ing for­ward to host­ing the event. We are hop­ing for spe­cial guests, fun-filled in­ter­mis­sions, and rais­ing some funds for the Bay Roberts Cit­i­zens Crime Preven­tion Com­mit­tee. Cost is min­i­mal — only $1 — and a do­na­tion of a non-per­ish­able food item for the food bank.

If your com­mu­nity or com­mu­nity group is look­ing for RCMP in­volve­ment in your event you may con­tact the Trin­ity Con­cep­tion of­fices at Bay Roberts (786-2118) or Har­bour Grace (596-5014). You may also con­tact the com­mu­nity polic­ing of­fi­cer di­rectly at 589-5635.
