The month of July has been a very busy month for Trail RCMP.  Police have been receiving an increase in noise complaints in Rossland and Trail area during the past two week.  With school being out, and with summer holidays, there has been an increase in calls for service by police.

There has been 100 per cent compliance with police when attending any calls of parties or loud music complaints.

Even with the high call volume, local police continue to make checks on prolific offenders, such as curfew and no contact orders that are put in place to ensure compliance is being met.

A female was arrested and charged with several counts of breach for not abiding by her conditions set out by the courts, and was given jail time for failing to comply with her order.   Another male was charged for breaching his probation orders for firearms offences and charged for breaching his conditions.

There has been a significant decrease in mischief and damage to property, as well as thefts from vehicles in the month of July.

Traffic has increased in the area during the summer, and police have been noticing violations of hand held devices such as cell phones being used.

One male was stopped for using his cell phone while driving and subsequently charged with using a hand held device as well as charged with driving while under the influence of alcohol.

Road checks will continue to be out during summer months.
