Columbia Valley RCMP

This past week November 13 to November 20 the Columbia Valley RCMP responded to 65 calls for service. 

The department did not see any significant files of a criminal nature, but we have seen an uptick in mental health related calls.  

As the holidays approach, it becomes more difficult for some people to cope.  

If you know someone who suffers with mental health concerns, please take the time to reach out and check in on them to see how they are doing. Sometimes it just takes a kind gesture or words to help someone through a tough day.
