It has been brought to the attention of the Maidstone RCMP Detachment that comments have been made on social media regarding recent criminal activity in the Town of Maidstone. At this time, the Maidstone RCMP has received complaints regarding the break and enter and/or mischief of vehicles in the Town of Maidstone, however not to the extent reported on social media..
The Maidstone RCMP requests that anybody who has had their property rummaged through, damaged or stolen to immediately report it so that it can be properly tracked, monitored and action taken.
Often it is felt that the damage or items taken are of minimal value, however without proper information, Police are unable to get a view of the bigger picture and act appropriately. This includes data analysis and “hot spot” tracking. With appropriate information Police resources can be reallocated where required.
What Police require is that the victim of the crime provide Police with first hand information about the events that took place. This information can include a short summary of the crime, descriptions of items taken or damage done, possible suspects and any other information of value. While still helpful, third party information is often not as accurate.
To protect your property, Police request anything of value be removed from motor vehicles and campers, including ignition keys. Vehicles locked or otherwise secured and to keep your yard and property well lit.
The safety of the communities we Police and live in are of the utmost importance to us, and we continue to take any level of crime seriously. The Maidstone RCMP is fortunate to work with organizations such as Rural Crime watch and Crime Stoppers to curb crime. If you require emergency response, please contact 911 immediatly, for non-emergencies please contact 310-RCMP or 306-893-4800. If you wish to remain anonymous; contact Saskatchewan Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477, or Text: TIP206 and your message to CRIMES (274637), or online at www.saskcrimestoppers.com.  If your information leads to an arrest or a charge, or a case being cleared, you may be eligible for a cash reward of up to $2,000.00.

COMMENTS:

 

The new Maidstone Det is up and running – Please join us November 4th for our Grand Opening!

We have seen some staffing actions recently: The Cpl. spot has been filled by a promotional transfer from the Battlefords. Cpl Dereck CROZIER will be joining the Maidstone Det early November. Cpl. CROZIER has a significant amount of experience in traffic and brings with him a rare skill set, collision reconstruction. We are very excited to have him join the team and I’m sure he will be by to introduce himself. Also, Cst. Trevor REIMER has transferred to North Battleford and is expected to be leaving early November. Lastly the Detachment is looking at getting a new Cadet in December 2016. With all this movement and the arrival of the Cadet, we will actually be surplus in General Duty.

With the new Detachment we now have a victim services worker, Emmy KUYPERS, working right out of the detachment.

During this reporting period 4 vehicles stolen from within the RM, 3 trucks and 1 construction vehicle, No break and enters were reported.

As of Oct 28, 2016, I have been trained in Property Crime Examination. I will be able to assist in property related offences and aid in the retrieval and development of physical evidence such as fingerprints, tire tracks, foot prints, etc. Given the direction that crime has recently taken in the Midwest with the theft of vehicles and break and enters, this will prove an asset to the Maidstone Det and should give traction to some investigations that would of otherwise been deemed unsuitable by our Forensic Identification Section.

I have been patrolling Border Creek Estates as requested, and while I have not stopped anybody, I have seen many people and hope that this will ease some minds.

The 504 this month has been relatively slow, I believe that is due to the fact the dump road is being worked on, so I concentrated on the 514 and was able to catch some speeders. One individual was going 125 and had an unregistered vehicle. My biggest thing continues to be visibility, so while the ticket numbers may be low, I would estimate that I make contact with 2 or 3 times as many people. These are often warnings or quick checks, often reminding people of speed limits in the RM.

Congratulations on your elections, I look forward to our continued partnership!

In the 3 days following the collision and theft, the Maidstone RCMP alongside the Lloydminster Municipal RCMP and the Turtleford RCMP made attempts to locate the male.

COMMENTS:

 

The Enhanced Unit received a new vehicle (Ford Truck), it has been outfitted with radar and the latest technology for emergency equipment and radio communication. Further to that, I have access to LIDAR (laser radar) and other tools.

 

We are finding a spike of complaints in the RM of Britannia of erratic drivers (part of the ‘report impaired driver’s program’) on Highway 17. More often then not, these are being reported just as they enter Lloydminster, or north of Alcurve AB at the intersection. We have been working with both detachments with varying amounts of success, most of these calls are going as unsolved due to a variety of reasons, largely a lack of information, or time delays. A 6 minute time delays gives us a 10 km radius of where they might end up at highway speeds.

 

The RCMP is expected to take possession of the new RCMP Detachment in Maidstone August 30, from there, a few weeks are needed to get the detachment operational (Telephones, network access, security controls, etc). We are expecting to be working out of the two detachments for a short period and moved into the new detachment fully by the end of September (tentatively).

 

Cst. PLETT has transferred from the detachment mid August, but we welcomed Cst. WARKENTIN mid July as his replacement. We currently are running short of a Cpl. This process is lengthy, however well on it’s way and we hope to have someone named soon.
