Campbell River crime falls during cold spell, as does officer

‘Torrid pace’ of Campbell River criminal activity eases off

After a hot start to the year, the pace of criminal activity has cooled down in February, Campbell River RCMP report.

As of the end of the day on Feb. 15, the Campbell River RCMP had responded to 1,913 calls for service. As of the same date in 2020, the Campbell River RCMP had responded to 105 fewer files.

“Based on trends, we have seen the last two weeks, file generation slowed slightly from the torrid pace we were on at the end of January 2021,” said Const. Maury Tyre.

“The colder weather certainly slowed things down in the past week and we were quite fortunate that a lot of people chose to stay home rather than venture out in the snowy weather and get into accidents; which maybe I should have done too,” Tyre said after photos came to light of him taking a spill in the snow and dumping his coffee. The condition of any donuts involved is unknown at this point.

“The Campbell River RCMP are still up in total six per cent for the year over 2020, but that is much better than at the end of January where file counts reached close to a 12 per cent increase.”

If you wish to report Criminal offences or suspicious activity, please contact the Campbell River RCMP at 250-286-6221, or in an emergency call 911.
