Calls for service drop for Masset RCMP

Masset RCMP responded to fewer calls within their jurisdiction last year compared to 2012.

Masset RCMP responded to fewer calls within their jurisdiction last year compared to 2012, but responded to more calls for service from Port Clements itself.

The Masset RCMP report, composed by acting detachment commander Chris Kienzle, indicates members responded to 1,292 calls between April 1, 2013 and March 31, 2014. In the same time the previous year, RCMP handed 1,461 calls for service, a drop of 169 calls representing 12 per cent.

At the same time, the number of calls for service in Port Clements increased from 105 in 2012-2013 to 129 in the past year, representing an increase of 19 per cent.

Despite the increase, Const. Kienzle said the people of Port Clements should be proud of their community.

“Port Clements continues to be a safe, delightful community due in large part to its concerned and caring residents,” he said.

“The Masset RCMP would like to thank the entire Village of Port Clements for its ongoing support.”
