RCMP ‘hub­bing’ con­cerns North­ern Penin­sula coun­cils

Northern Pen - - Editorial -

Coun­cils on the Great North­ern Penin­sula re­main con­cerned about RCMP NL’s de­ci­sion to hub po­lice sta­tions who are on call af­ter hours. This means that neigh­bour­ing de­tach­ments will re­spond to calls for ser­vice at their own de­tach­ment and the neigh­bour­ing de­tach­ment on an al­ter­nat­ing ba­sis. Rod­dick­ton-Bide Arm and St. An­thony were “hubbed” to­gether, as were Port Saun­ders and Flower’s Cove. Coun­cils were con­cerned this would mean po­ten­tially in­creased re­sponse times in the event of emer­gen­cies.
