Successful Operation

Cold Lake Detachment participates in National Checkstop initiative.

On Saturday, May 20th members of the Cold Lake RCMP Detachment participated in a National Impaired Driving Day by dedicating their night shifts to conduct three checkstops in the city, over three hours.

“We checked a total of 520 vehicles,” S/Sgt Jeremie Landry reports that two drivers were charged with impaired operation of a motor vehicle and three drivers were charged with roadside suspensions. Another driver was charged with a roadside suspension longer than 30 days for alcohol.

Landry considers the initiative a successful operation.

If you have been drinking or using drugs there are many sober ride options in the City of Cold Lake; including free public transit and taxis.
