Help find Const. Scare­crow: RCMP

Edmonton Sun - - NEWS -

LLOY­D­MIN­STER — const. Scare­crow is miss­ing and Moun­ties in Lloy­d­min­ster, alta., want help get­ting their col­league back.

Po­lice say the life-size cutout, usu­ally used to en­force traf­fic safety, was last seen on Sept. 28 in the city that strad­dles the al­berta-saskatchew­an bound­ary.

const. Scare­crow is sixfeet two-inches tall, weighs less than 25 pounds and was wear­ing all green.

Metal cut-outs of uni­formed Moun­ties are placed next to busy roads and in­ter­sec­tions in Lloy­d­min­ster to dis­cour­age speed­ers.

Glenn al­ford with the city of Lloy­d­min­ster says each cut-out costs about $325 — a frac­tion of what it would cost to have a real of­fi­cer mon­i­tor the lo­ca­tions.

the cutout is mod­elled on a sim­i­lar pro­ject that started last year in co­quit­lam, bri­tish columbia.

this re­port by the cana­dian Press was first pub­lished Oct. 3, 2019.
