Clearwater RCMP to continue policing Blue River

It was suggested that the Clearwater and Valemount detachments might share the responsibility for the community.

The policing responsibility for Blue River will remain with Clearwater RCMP Detachment.

That’s according to a letter from Sgt. Kevin Podbisky, NCO-in-charge at the detachment, to John Ranta, chair of the Thompson-Nicola Regional District.

The letter was released during a TNRD board meeting held Dec. 15.

A meeting between the TNRD, Attorney General Suzanne Anton and others was held during the 2015 Union of BC Municipalities convention in Whistler to discuss the policing situation in Blue River, Podbisky said.

During the meeting it was suggested that the Clearwater and Valemount detachments might share the responsibility for the community.

Blue River is about a one hour drive from each detachment.


A study has been done and as a result of that study the policing responsibility for Blue River will remain with the Clearwater RCMP, Podbisky stated.
