Speed reminder at the entrance to Beaver Mines

Christian Davis - According to a report by Pincher Creek RCMP Detachment Commander Sgt. Mark Harrison three May long weekend checkstops near Beaver Mines proved to be quite successful.  47 violation tickets were issued this May long weekend, compared to 10 in 2015.

In an email addressed to MD of Pincher Creek CAO Wendy Kay dated May 31, 2016 Harrison said "We had a quiet weekend due in part to the weather but also I  want to give credit to our members and our partners in Fish and Wildlife, Conservation/Parks officers and Commercial Vehide enforcement. We conducted three joint  check stops over the weekend near Beaver Mines that was a huge success.We also conducted joint quad patrols in the rural Castle area stopping off road vehicles, conducting safety inspection and checking for proper vehicle documents. We received numerous compliments from campers in the area for being in the back country on quads."

"As you can see from the Provincial stats below our increased efforts resulted in a big jump in violations from last year. This ticket count is for the RCMP only and does not include other Provincial agencies."
  • May long weekend 2015 - 10 violation tickets
