Public can help

The Compass - - CLASSIFIED -

The Trin­ity Con­cep­tion RCMP an­swered 110 calls for ser­vice dur­ing the week of April 25-May 1. 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 13 false alarms, 29 traf­fic re­lated com­plaints, and eight mo­tor ve­hi­cle col­li­sions.

April 25

• Re­sponded to a sin­gle ve­hi­cle moose col­li­sion on Vet­er­ans Me­mo­rial High­way. No in­juries were re­ported with mi­nor dam­ages to a pickup truck. The moose was killed in the col­li­sion and was re­moved from the scene by wildlife of­fi­cers.

• Re­sponded to a com­plaint of dam­age to prop­erty lo­cated at the re­cre­ation com­plex in Vic­to­ria. Dam­age was done to pic­nic ta­bles in the area. In­for­ma­tion about the dam­age in­clud­ing a photo may have been posted on a so­cial me­dia site. The mat­ter is un­der in­ves­ti­ga­tion.

• Re­sponded to a com­plaint of a ve­hi­cle pass­ing a school bus while the lights were flash­ing. The in­ci­dent oc­curred in the Car­bon­ear area and was re­ported by the bus driver.

A friendly re­minder

All ter­rain ve­hi­cles (ATVS)! Lately, many of the traf­fic com­plaints re­ceived by the RCMP are re­lated to im­proper ATV use. Most of the com­plaints deal with ATVS be­ing op­er­ated on public streets. In some com­mu­ni­ties they are be­ing used as ve­hi­cles to go to the store or the post of­fice. Ev­ery­one is re­minded that ATVS are for of­froad use only. These is­sues will be en­forced by the RCMP.
