City approves the addition of six RCMP officers
Six additional RCMP officers will soon be added to the city's police force.
City council approved a $1.1 million increase to the 2018 budget Wednesday, bringing the total number of officers in the city to 56.
Vernon recently came in at #9 nationally on the crime severity index after Statistics Canada released the latest numbers.
However the bid for additional officers has been in the works for some time.
