The City of Dawson Creek takes pride in fostering transparency and open communication with the public. Our residents should be aware that Mayor, Council and Senior Staff are in constant contact with Senior Management at the Dawson Creek RCMP Detachment regarding any major events and issues affecting our community, including those that have affected the area over the past year; however, the RCMP’s ability to share information is limited during active investigations.
The RCMP and the City recognize the public’s fear with the nature of the current events and how difficult it is to wait for the release of information. Measures are in place to ensure the public’s safety while these investigations continue. These measures include police units assisting Dawson Creek from around the province, including the Lower Mainland Gang Enforcement Team, the Prince George Regional General Investigation Section, the Prince George Major Crime Unit, and resources from the Fort St. John and Williams Lake Detachments.
The suppression and enforcement efforts over the past few months have shown a significant decrease in violence, particularly in firearm offences. Drugs and multiple firearms have been taken from the hands of alleged offenders and the efforts from the Dawson Creek Detachment and supporting RCMP units will continue as we move into the Spring of 2024.
The public’s safety continues to be at the forefront of our priorities, and guides Mayor and Council’s efforts to advocate for our community to higher levels of government.
