Police ramping up for long weekend

Terrace RCMP partnering with other agencies to add extra enforcement

Police are warning partiers to be on their best behaviour over the May long weekend. The Terrace RCMP said today in a press release that an effort to keep the holiday safe and enjoyable for families, they have partnered with a variety of agencies to strictly enforce the laws.

From today, May 17 to Victoria Day, May 21, Terrace RCMP will be working with the Kitimat RCMP, Conservation Officers, the Provincial Park Rangers, Department of Oceans and Fisheries, and the West Pacific Traffic Services to conduct extra enforcement in town, on the roadways, and in rec sites – specifically Furlong Bay.

“Last year’s May Long Weekend saw issues surrounding partying, underage drinking, and other problems that come with those behaviours, said Cst. Crystal Evelyn, Terrace RCMP. “Because of that, we will be out in full force doing strict enforcement, especially at Furlong Bay and the recreational sites.”

Those who are not obeying the rules, particularly surrounding liquor offences, will be asked to leave rec sites. Guardians of minors will be contacted to remove their children from the park should they be found committing a criminal or provincial offence.

“Consider this your verbal warning, enforcement will be strict,” said Evelyn.

If you have information about crime contact the Terrace RCMP at (250)638-7400 or anonymously through Crime Stoppers by telephone at 1-800-222-TIPS, online at www.terracecrimestoppers.ca.
