    Lewisporte RCMP Help Launch Bullying Prevention Program for Local School On March 4, 2016, Lewisporte RCMP officer, Cst. André Sparkes, with Lewisporte Academy students, faculty and staff as well as local residents, launched WITS, a bullying and conflict resolution program. Lewisporte Academy is now one of seven schools to join the program in the province and Cst. Sparkes hopes it will continue to spread. WITS stands for Walk away, Ignore, Talk it out, and Seek help. Cst. Sparkes presented to children in Kindergarten to Grade Three and read Walrus’s Gift, which reinforced the WITS theme, showing children how they can seek help from others when faced with conflict or bullying. The Officer then taught the students how to stand at attention, salute, and give the secret WITS Handshake and Password. Cst. Sparkes then swore the students in as WITS Special Constables, having the students repeat the WITS Oath: “I promise to use my WITS, to walk away, ignore, talk it out and seek help when I’m dealing with teasing and bullying. I promise to also help other kids use their WITS to keep my school and my community a safe and fun place to be and learn.” Cst. SPARKES has helped launch the program in three other central Newfoundland schools, as well as schools in Nova Scotia. The program is presently in hundreds of schools across the country and Cst. Sparkes hopes even more schools in Atlantic Canada continue to adopt this very well received program. The W.I.T.S. program also has a component geared towards Grades 4-6, called the L.E.A.D.S. which stands for Look and listen, Explore points of view, Act, Did it work, and Seek help. Lewisporte Academy has started with the Primary portion of the program first and hopes to also launch the LEADS portion next fall. The goal of WITS is to create responsive communities that actively work to prevent peer victimization and bullying in their homes, schools and communities. The Program teaches children in Kindergarten to Grade 3 to make safe and positive choices when faced with peer conflict. The WITS acronym provides a common language that children and the adults in their environments can use to talk about and respond to peer victimization. Now that the program has been launched, the Lewisporte Academy faculty will begin teaching the various in-class lessons based upon popular children’s books. The RCMP will check in with students and monitor the program’s progress.

    NL RCMP recognize behind-the-scenes first responders during National Public Safety Telecommunications Week April 11, 2016 (St. John’s, N.L.) – April 10 -16, 2016 is National Public Safety Telecommunications Week, dedicated to recognizing the important work of telecommunications operators across Canada. In 2015, more than 17,000 calls were made to the Newfoundland and Labrador RCMP’s Operational Communications Centre including reports of traffic collisions and impaired drivers. These operators assess each call by asking a series of questions that help them dispatch the appropriate emergency response. For each call, operators also keep track of the responding officer’s status, ensuring the officer’s safety and that they have the resources they need to respond to the call. “If you’re dealing with an emergency situation, a calm professional voice on the other end of the phone line can give comfort that help is on the way,” said Sgt. Wayne Newell, manager of the RCMP’s Newfoundland and Labrador Operational Communications Centre. “Our operators receive rigorous training to ensure they are able to deal with the challenging situations that they encounter every day.” The Newfoundland and Labrador RCMP’s Operational Communications Centre is a partner in the NL 911 system across the province along with the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary, fire departments and the four regional health authorities. “For first responders on scene, telecommunications operators are invaluable. This week is a great opportunity for us to recognize their role as behind-the-scenes first responder,” said Sgt. Newell. Newfoundland and Labrador RCMP’s Operational Communications Centre receives many non-emergency, nuisance and abandoned calls each day. These represent precious time lost that could have been spent on real emergencies. Remember: - Only call 911 if someone’s health, safety or property is in jeopardy or if a crime is in progress. - If you call 911 by mistake, stay on the line and let the operator know - Lock your phone properly to avoid “pocket dials” to 911 - Use non-emergency phone numbers for your local RCMP, RNC or other police of jurisdiction. When there is an emergency and you’re on the phone with an operator or dispatcher, you will be asked: - Location of the emergency with address, cross streets and landmarks - Personal information, your name, address, call back number and date of birth - Details of the emergency and description of possible suspects or vehicles Learn more about the Province-wide 911 service: nl911.ca

    Royal Canadian Mounted Police and Royal Newfoundland Constabulary partner with Shoppers Drug Mart and Guardian/Hamilton Drugs on Prescription Drug Drop Off Day in communities outside Metro St. John’s March 21, 2016 (St. John’s, N.L.) -- Newfoundland and Labrador RCMP is partnering with the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary, Shoppers Drug Mart and Guardian/Hamilton Drugs on a Prescription Drug Drop Off Day on March 22, 2016 for communities outside Metro St. John’s. “Easily accessible medications can be tempting to curious children and teens, leading to serious harm, if misused or accidently ingested,” said Sgt. Geoff Green, RCMP's Drugs and Organized Crime Awareness Coordinator. “RCMP encourages everyone to clean out their medicine cabinets and put safety first.” “At Shoppers Drug Mart we want to promote best practices and help to change the behaviors in Canadians day-to-day lives when it comes to medicine use and disposal,” said Kirk Edwards, Vice President Operations Atlantic Shoppers Drug Mart. Shoppers Drug Mart and Loblaw Pharmacy recently concluded its 2015 National Medicine Take-Back Campaign which saw a record breaking 628 tons of unused and expired drugs dropped off at participating locations, ensuring the drugs were disposed of in an environmentally-friendly manner and kept off of the streets. Those planning to drop off their expired or unused prescription drugs are asked not to remove the labels as these are needed to help properly identify and dispose of the medications. Date: Tuesday, March 22, 2016 Time: 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

    Name the puppy 2016 INNISFAIL, Alberta, February 23, 2016–The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) needs help in naming puppies that will become Canada’s future RCMP Police Dogs. The Police Dog Service Training Centre (PDSTC) in Innisfail, Alberta, is asking young Canadians to suggest names for 13 German Shepherd puppies that will be born at the Centre in 2016. Children are encouraged to be original and imaginative in finding names that will serve these puppies well in their careers with Canada’s national police force. When thinking of names, it is important to keep in mind that these are working police dogs, not pets. The 13 children whose names are selected will each receive a laminated 8×10-inch photo of the pup they name, a plush dog named Justice and an RCMP cap. Inspector Akrum Ghadban, the Officer In Charge of the Police Dog Service Training Centre, is excited by the contest, saying: “The Name the Puppy Contest is an exciting time for everyone at PDSTC. I am certainly looking forward to seeing all the creative contest entries from across Canada.” Contest rules are simple: •Contestants can suggest only one name (one entry per person). •The name may be for a male or a female pup. •The name must start with the letter “J”. •The name must have no more than nine (9) letters. •The name must be one or two syllables. •Contestants must live in Canada and be 14 years old or younger. Two ways to enter: 1. Enter online: www.rcmp-grc.ca/depot/pdstc-cdcp/name-the-puppy-nomme-le-chiot-eng.htm 2. Send a letter to the following address. Be sure to print the child’s name, age, address, telephone number and the suggested name for a puppy. Attn: “Name the Puppy Contest” Police Dog Service Training Centre Box 6120 Innisfail, AB T4G 1S8 We love to receive drawings and paintings! If submitting by mail, children are invited to get creative with their entries. Although there can be only 13 winners, names not selected for the contest will be considered for other puppies born during the year. The deadline for entries is March 22, 2016. Contest winners and prizes will be announced on April 26, 2016. Winning names will be chosen by the PDSTC staff. A draw will determine the winning entry in the event of multiple submissions of the same puppy name. The PDSTC is home to the RCMP national police dog training program and is a part of RCMP “Depot” Division. Our centre has earned a great reputation for breeding top quality working German Shepherds and for training dogs with outstanding searching and tracking abilities.

    RCMP warning public about telephone scam St. John’s, N.L. (February 18, 2016) – Newfoundland and Labrador RCMP is warning the public about a telephone scam where fraudsters are claiming to be from the RCMP and are demanding money. The callers are aggressive, saying that the victims have been fined or are in trouble with a federal government agency. They sometimes claim that the victim will be arrested if the money is not paid. Some of these fraudsters are making themselves seem legitimate by running a program that shows an RCMP phone number on the victim’s call display. This is a scam. RCMP is advising anyone who receives one of these calls to hang up and to not send money or provide personal information. Anyone who has been a victim of one of these scams is asked to contact the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre at 1-888-495-8501 or via www.antifraudcentre.ca.

    Good drivers just drive: Tips for keeping your focus on the road • Allow phone calls to go directly to voicemail. • Wait until you are out of your vehicle to safely check texts and emails. • Eat your breakfast at home.

    Good drivers just drive Tips for keeping your focus on the road Before you drive: • Know your route before you start driving. Pre-program your GPS or have your route memorized. • Allow plenty of time to reach your destination. If you are not in a rush, you are less likely to be distracted by the time or the pressure to arrive. • Pre-set seats, mirrors, climate control and radio stations. • Secure loose objects so they do not roll around the vehicle tempting you to reach for them while driving. • Secure pets properly in the backseat. If they are moving around the vehicle, they can easily become a distraction or a physical barrier to the driver’s line of vision and ability to maneuver the vehicle. •Turn off the alerts on your phone so you are not tempted to check a text or an email.

    Good drivers just drive: February 18 RCMP distracted driving enforcement day On Thursday, February 18, 2016, RCMP Traffic Services units across Newfoundland and Labrador will be conducting distracted driving enforcement check stops. They will be looking for drivers texting or talking on handheld cellular devices or who engage in other distracted driving behaviours. Distracted driving is extremely dangerous and places all road users at risk. Using a cell phone while driving, texting, adjusting your radio, reading, eating and applying makeup are all examples of distracted driving, even if a driver is stopped at an intersection or stop sign. The fine for texting or talking on a handheld cellular device while operating a vehicle is $115 results in four demerit points off your licence. If you notice someone texting or talking on their cell phone while driving, report it to your local RCMP detachment. Provide as much detail as possible including make/model and colour of the vehicle, licence plate number and the direction of travel. The RCMP remind motorists that driving requires your full attention every time you get behind the wheel. Any distraction that takes your focus away from the road endangers your safety, the safety of your passengers as well as other motorists.

    RCMP to pilot 24/7 service delivery model in Clarenville and Grand Falls-Windsor Detachments February 12, 2016 – St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador Beginning February 2016, Newfoundland and Labrador RCMP will launch a pilot project to assess a 24/7 service delivery model in the Clarenville and Grand-Falls Windsor Detachments. The two-year pilot project will assess the implementation of a three-shift schedule that will have officers on duty 24/7. Currently, RCMP detachments in Newfoundland and Labrador use a schedule that includes two regular shifts and an on call shift each day. The additional third shift, as part of the 24/7 project, will replace the existing on-call shift at the Clarenville and Grand Falls-Windsor Detachments during the project. “Over the next two years, this project will see RCMP officers on duty 24/7 in the Clarenville and Grand Falls-Windsor Detachment Areas,” said Staff Sergeant Greg Hicks. “We will monitor the impacts of the 24/7 schedule throughout the project to identify best practices and continue striving to deliver the best service we can to our communities.” The 24/7 pilot project will be implemented by the Grand Falls-Windsor Detachment on February 23 and the Clarenville Detachment on February 28. No additional resources or funds will be required to run the project. There will be no change to the detachments’ office hours as a result of the project. rcmp.ca/-wEl

    PLEASE SHARE A Canada-wide warrant was issued today for a man and a woman charged with the murder of an 18-year-old Moncton man. 20-year-old Marissa Shephard and 18-year-old Tyler Noel, both of Moncton, are charged with first-degree murder and arson in connection with the death of 18-year-old Baylee Wylie of Moncton on December 17, 2015. At this point it is unknown if Shephard and Noel are together or if they’re in New Brunswick or outside the province. “Anyone who is helping these two evade police can be charged with accessory after the fact to commit first degree murder,” says Sgt. André Pepin with the Codiac Regional RCMP. “The murder of Baylee Wylie was extremely violent. These two should be considered dangerous and not be approached.” Marissa Shephard is described as Caucasian, 167cm (5'5") tall and weighs approximately 45kg (100lbs). She has brown eyes and brown hair. She has a tattoo with the name Stephen on her neck and a tattoo of a crown on her chest. Previous news releases had stated the tattoo was a heart and not a crown. Tyler Noel is described as Caucasian with a medium complexion. He is 173cm (5'8") tall with a medium build and weighs approximately 64kg (140lbs). He has brown eyes and black hair, including facial hair and sideburns. He has tattoos on his right arm with the words mom, dad and Mary as well as a skull. Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Marissa Shephard or Tyler Noel can call 9-1-1 immediately, the Codiac Regional RCMP at 506-857-2400 or anonymously through Crime Stoppers at www.crimenb.ca or at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477), or by texting TIP212 + your message to 'CRIMES' (274637). A cash award is available for information leading to their arrests. http://www.rcmp.gc.ca/en/news/2015/28/canada-wide-warrant-issued-pair-charged-murder

    No excuses – Police launch social media campaign to raise awareness of impaired driving, St. John’s, N.L. The RCMP in the Atlantic Provinces along with the Halifax Regional Police are launching a social media campaign this week to continue to help raise awareness about impaired driving. The campaign is aimed at getting people to plan ahead when going out to celebrate the holiday season as opposed to making excuses to police for driving impaired. Police officers and emergency responders know first-hand the tragic effects impaired driving related crashes have on families and communities. They are the ones who see, all too often, the consequences when someone chooses to drive after drinking rather than finding another way home. This week the RCMP in the Atlantic Provinces and Halifax Regional Police are going to highlight some of the excuses police officers hear when dealing with impaired drivers. There is nothing funny about drinking and driving; all the excuses do is demonstrate that the driver should not be behind the wheel. An excuse will not prevent an impaired driver from injuring themselves or others or even killing someone should they be involved in a crash. This is National Safe Driving Week in Canada and on December 4, 2015 the RCMP in Newfoundland and Labrador is joining police forces across Canada to crack down on impaired driving as part of National Impaired Driving Enforcement Day. Drivers can expect to see multiple police checkstops not only on December 4, but all week. Driving while impaired is a crime in Canada and is the number one criminal cause of death in this country. This holiday season, rather than make excuses, take action before going out and plan ahead by taking a taxi home from festivities involving alcohol, have a designated driver, or if at a residential party ask the host to stay the night. Any of these options will allow you to enjoy the holidays without an excuse and without the possibility of being involved in a crash that causes serious injury or worse death. The goal for the RCMP in Atlantic Canada and the Halifax Regional Police is to not have any motor vehicle collisions involving alcohol this week. Remember to drive sober and if you see a motorist you believe to be impaired call 9-1-1. That call may save a life. Rcmp.ca/-EpK
