Due to an increase in shootings in Dawson Creek over the last few weeks, additional RCMP resources are headed to the city.

The local RCMP detachment is responding quickly and thoroughly to calls and is working with the North District Division of the BC RCMP to provide more resources to local RCMP.  

Over the next few days, there will be an increase in police presence in Dawson Creek. RCMP will be taking a three-tiered approach of prevention, intervention and suppression, and other support units from around the province have also been called upon to assist.

Investigations into recent incidents are ongoing, and police encourage anyone with information to contact the Dawson Creek RCMP at (250) 784-3700, 911, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
