Residents of Prince Rupert will be able to follow the activities of RCMP officers this Saturday night as the detachment launches a new social media campaign to provide more insight into policing in the community.

Between 9 p.m. and 3 a.m. the Prince Rupert RCMP will go live with Tweets of calls being attended to, and will be posting information through the Prince Rupert Crime Stoppers Facebook Page. Insp. Wayne Maughan (Prince Rupert Detachment Commander) and Const. Matt Ericson (Media/Community Liaison) will be attending calls for service throughout the evening. Once at the calls the community of Prince Rupert will be able view how an event unfolds in real time.

“This is an exciting initiative for the Prince Rupert RCMP Detachment,” said Cst. Ericson.

“We are hoping that through this social media event we will be able to communicate directly with the citizens of Prince Rupert and the surrounding area. This is turn will create the platform for an open dialogue where questions may be asked directly to the Inspector or myself and we can provide a real time answer. Although we are prepared to field questions, the community must understand that during any discussions, protecting individual’s privacy and the integrity of investigations will be paramount.”
