Victoria Day long weekend keeps Mounties busy

Victoria Day long weekend keeps Mounties busy Whitehorse RCMP kept busy during the long weekend, responding to 186 calls, conducting 68 traffic stops and laying 29 criminal code charges.

Whitehorse RCMP kept busy during the long weekend, responding to 186 calls, conducting 68 traffic stops and laying 29 criminal code charges.

Those charges included driving offences, theft, and breaches of a court order.

Six people were arrested for impaired driving and nine vehicles were impounded.

Most of the calls were resolved without charges being laid, said RCMP Cpl. Natasha Dunmall.

The RCMP also sent 10 foot patrols over the weekend, mainly in parks, along the waterfront and downtown.

“Foot patrols are how we help stay connected to our community,” said Dunmall. “People are more inclined to approach and speak to an officer without the barrier of a police vehicle.”

Residents should expect foot and bike patrols over the summer, she said.
