Trail RCMP plans for the upcoming year


The Trail RCMP Sergeant was at Rossland Council this week.

Mike Wicentowich reaches out this time of year to look at priorities and plans for the upcoming year.

He says they're going to continue to focus on drug trafficking, impaired driving enforcement , speeding and distracted driving.

According to Wicentowich, the highest volume of complaints they deal with are theft and traffic complaints.

He says they've identified that they will likely need additional resources in the future, but it's complex process, and expensive.

Over the next year, Wicentowich says RCMP will continue to focus on the Citizens on Patrol Program in Trail and implementing Speed Watch and Cell Watch in Trail.

He says the other communities within the detachment are also interested in starting up those programs.
