Sgt. Ed DeJong

Columbia Valley RCMP

This past week, September 11 to 18, the Columbia Valley RCMP responded to 81 calls for service. The following is a summary of some of the files our officers responded to:

Twenty-one per cent of calls for service related to traffic complaints and/or motor vehicle collisions.  

With the paving project on Hwy 93/95 between Windermere and Canal Flats, along with the imminent closing of Hwy 1 and re-routing of traffic through Kootenay National Park and Hwy 95 to Golden, we are asking members of the public to be patient and abide by the posted speed limits.  

These temporary inconveniences are required to continue to improve the highway system in our area.
