Citizens are invited to the Elk Point RCMP Detachment’s Open House on March 8th to discuss what priorities are important to the public. S/Sgt. Barry LaRocque says the public’s opinion is a vital part of setting policing priorities.
“We can sit back, as police, and think that issue A is the most important thing, but it might be issue 4 that’s the most important to the community,” explains S/Sgt. LaRocque, “it’s good to get feedback so we have a consultant approach to setting up our priorities for the rest of the year.” There will be stats and crime trend information available at the session, as well, says S/Sgt. LaRocque. The Detachment will be asking the public for feedback, “in regards to what they would like to see or what they think the needs are for the communities for future years.”
The RCMP set their Policing Priorities on April 1st. The Open House will be held at the Seniors’ Centre in Elk Point on March 8th at 7:00 pm.
