The end of 2017 and the early hours of 2018 kept the West Shore RCMP busy.
@WestshoreRCMP responded to 68 calls for service on #NYE. Happy to report no serious incidents. Great job, West Shore, celebrating responsibly. Remember, it's never a good idea to drink and drive #DriveSober and leave the phone alone #DriveSafe. #yyjtraffic

The local detachment responded to 68 calls for service on New Year’s Eve. But officers were happy to report none of those were serious incidents.
During the entire month of December, the West Shore RCMP served nine 90 day roadside prohibitions, according to Const. Matthew Baker. No impaired drivers were reported to local police during the Christmas holiday. Baker added there were also no serious police incidents during that time period.
