crime rate

After meeting with Trail Mayor Lisa Pasin and council in August 2020, the RCMP stepped up foot patrols in downtown Trail. “The city takes our citizens’ concerns and safety very seriously,” Pasin said. “These are very challenging times and we are very aware of the unwanted activity in our city. Although increased foot patrols won’t solve all the issues we are currently facing, it is a proactive step in the right direction.” Photo: RCMP
