The Norman Wells RCMP would like to offer the following safety tips to ensure everyone has a safe and happy Holiday Season:
– Don’t Drink and Drive. There are taxi services available in Town to get you home safe from any holiday party. We will be conducting a greater number of check stops as part of the Territory wide “Operation Gingerbread” to curb impaired driving in December.
– Business owners and residents should take some time to ensure your security measures are functioning properly, including locks and camera systems.
– If you are travelling out of Town, have someone check your property regularly, clearing any snow and reporting any suspicious activity.
– Be wary of online scams. If you are unsure of any correspondence please bring it to us. We can forward it to the Canadian Anti Fraud Centre to check its validity before you are taken advantage of.
– Please continue to call 911 or 587-1111 in case of emergency or to report a crime.
