Dawson Creek RCMP: working on break-ins and theft

Bait car program expected in Mile Zero, priority offenders being identified.

Dawson Creek RCMP members are currently looking at a handful of options to help assist in bringing down property crime, thefts and commercial break-ins in Mile Zero and area.

"The detachment has increased visibility of patrols during the night to deter criminal activity relating to the commercial break and enters in the downtown core,” said Detachment Commander Damon Werrell earlier this week.

“Additional investigational aids have been enacted which cannot be released publicly at this time.”

The Dawson Creek RCMP will also be bringing their Bait Car program to the city. It is anticipated that this will assist the detachment in dealing with the property crime and vehicle thefts in the city and surrounding rural area. Werrell says priority offenders are in the midst of being identified in consultation with Crown Counsel and the RCMP District Crime Analysts.

“These are the offenders which would benefit most from regular police checks with the goal to reduce crime," said Werrell in a report to DC city council.
