January’s crime count may not have been too dramatic, but the local RCMP members still kept themselves busy.

January’s crime count may not have been too dramatic, but the local RCMP members still kept themselves busy.

Staff Sergeant Steve Corp presented stats for the month to council February 21 which showed 248 reported criminal code cases.

The biggest numbers were 50 Motor Vehicle Act tickets and 29 warnings followed by 11 common assaults and eight cases of causing a disturbance.

Other activities included taking part in ongoing training including the approved screening devices (breathalysers) and the new regulations around drinking and driving.

On a lighter note, officers had joined with firefighters to play two games of basketball against what Corp described as “a very good junior team” at Mount Elizabeth Secondary.

The games were a fund raiser for the local Food Bank which got four boxes of donations. “A good time was had by all participants,” he added.

Constables Fahlman, Reid and Kelly took part in the highly successful Literacy Night, helping run an event in the activity zone. 

Cst. Reid had also taken part in the Thursday night sports events at Nechako Elementary.

And Reid and Kelly conducted interviews and physical requirement testing for two  Kitimatian youths hoping the attend this month’s RCMP Youth Academy in Prince George.
