    A vehicle nearly misses on officer while they are conducting a traffic stop on an impaired driver. An officer is forced to jump out of the way of an approaching vehicle on a 100-series highway. These are just two examples that RCMP officers across the province face each day while conducting their policing duties. Throughout the month of April, the Nova Scotia RCMP is undertaking an awareness campaign designed to improve the safety of all first responders (police, fire and EHS personnel) by reminding the public about the dangers they face and why Nova Scotia has 'Move Over' legislation. Traffic Services units across the province will also be conducting enforcement activities throughout the month in support of this initiative and to ensure that motorists are adhering to this law. On May 1, 2010, An Act to Increase Safety for First Responders and Others, often referred to as the 'Move Over' law, came into effect in Nova Scotia and makes it an offence to speed in excess 60 km/h or the posted speed limit, whichever is the lesser of the two, when passing a stopped emergency vehicle when its emergency lights are on. Motorists are also required to change lanes to the lane furthest from the stopped emergency vehicle if that lane is free and it is safe to do so. Failure to abide by the 'Move Over' law can result in a fine ranging from $352.50 to $2,442.50. 'Although the 'Move Over' law has been in place since 2010, we're still noticing that drivers are failing to slow down and move over,' says Nova Scotia RCMP Traffic Services Cst. Mark Skinner. 'The work we do often takes place on the side of our province's roadways, so we are asking motorists to help all police and first responders get home safe. If you don't slow down and move over when approaching a stopped emergency vehicle, it could result in serious injury or death.' For more information on the 'Move Over' campaign, be sure to follow the Nova Scotia RCMP on Twitter (@RCMPNS) and Facebook (Royal Canadian Mounted Police in Nova Scotia), as well as the hashtags #SlowDown and #MoveOver. Reminder messages on 'Move Over' will also be posted on the 100-series highway digital signs and at select Service Nova Scotia centres as well.

    #TrafficTuesday – A fast drive can be your last drive Driving safely can be challenging even when you’re doing everything right. Navigating curves, keeping consistent speeds and changing lanes all require concentration and coordination. When you speed, you’re really going out of your way to make things dangerous for you and others on the road. Speeding also reduces the reaction time required to successfully navigate unexpected road hazards. Be smart, be safe. Don’t speed.

    With much of Nova Scotia expecting heavy rain and wind this weekend, the RCMP would like to remind drivers to modify their driving habits. Heavy rain typically results in water build-up on roadways which increases the possibility of hydroplaning. It is important to take extra care when driving on roadways this weekend. RCMP offer the following tips for driving in the rain: - Reduce speed and watch for puddles or dips in the road where water may be pooling. - Drive with headlights on. It will increase visibility and will also make the vehicle more visible to other drivers. - Avoid using cruise control. - Brake earlier and with less force. - Avoid sudden jerks or turns of the steering wheel. - Keep both hands on the wheel. - Beware of other vehicles around you. Larger vehicles such as trucks, buses and trailers are especially affected by heavy rain.

    Next week, April showers will start to bring the much needed conditions for May flowers, but they will also bring unpredictable weather and rainy driving conditions. As we switch over to spring weather, Nova Scotia RCMP is asking motorists to keep the following driving tips in mind. When driving in the rain, beware of other vehicles around you. Larger vehicles such as trucks, buses and trailers are especially affected by heavy rain and winds, so leaving a longer following distance is a good idea. Also, regardless of the time of day, make sure you drive with your headlights on when it is raining or foggy. Doing so increases visibility and makes you more visible to other drivers. Heavy rain also can result in water build-up on roadways, which increases the possibility of hydroplaning. When this occurs, be sure to reduce your speed and avoid puddles and other areas where the water is pooling. If you do find you are starting to hydroplane, stay calm and take your foot off the gas. Slowing down will usually restore contact and friction with the road surface. Motorists should also refrain from using cruise control in the rain and fog. Keeping both hands on the wheel and braking early and with less force will also allow you to keep positive control of your vehicle in heavy rains. It is also a good idea to conduct a thorough equipment check of your vehicle now that winter is over. Specifically, wiper blades may be worn out due to snow and ice, so new ones may be required maintain effective visibility in the rain. Also make sure all of your vehicles lights are operating correctly. This includes head lights, tail lights, turning signals, brake lights, and parking lights. Remember, road safety is everyone's responsibility. By following these tips and driving with caution, you can help keep our roadways collision-free this spring.

    A Windsor youth is facing child pornography charges following an investigation by Windsor District RCMP and the RCMP's Provincial Internet Child Exploitation (ICE) Unit. On March 23, 2016, information came forward to police that inappropriate images had been shared on a social media site by a 15-year-old female. As a result, Windsor District RCMP arrested the 15-year-old girl yesterday who is facing charges of Producing, Possessing and Distributing Child Pornography. The youth was released and will appear in Windsor Provincial Court on April 1, 2016. "These are serious charges and as police, we want to remind parents about the importance of talking to their children about their online activities," says Cpl. Jennifer Clarke, Nova Scotia RCMP. "We need to ensure they understand the gravity of their actions and the consequences associated to their online behaviour. Once a digital image is created, it is impossible to know what will happen when it goes out into the world and it may never be deleted." The investigation is ongoing. In Nova Scotia it is mandatory for citizens to report suspected child pornography. This means that anyone who encounters child pornography material or recordings must report it to police. Failing to report suspicious activity and materials could result in penalties similar to failure to report child abuse set out in the Child and Family Services Act. The RCMP encourages citizens to be a voice for children who are victims of sexual exploitation by reporting any suspected offences to your local police or by using Canada's national tip line for reporting online sexual exploitation of children at www.cybertip.ca.

    As March is Fraud Prevention Month, the Nova Scotia RCMP is warning citizens to be careful of job and employment scams. These kinds of scams have been reported throughout Nova Scotia over the past number of years. Job and employment scams target people who are looking for a job. These scams promise a lot of income – sometimes even ‘guarantee’ it – for little or no effort. They can be presented as ‘work from home’ arrangements, and are often promoted through spam e-mails, online advertisements or in newspapers. Most of these advertisements are fronts for illegal money-laundering activities or schemes. Some scams offer jobs as secret shoppers, which claim to hire individuals to test the services of a cheque cashing or money transfer company and promise a percentage of the commission for each payment you pass on. With these scams, fraudsters are just after your bank account details so they can access your account. They may also send you a counterfeit cheque along with instructions to cash the cheque and transfer a portion of the sum over a money transfer service. To protect yourself, do not reply to these advertisements and do not provide any of your personal information. For more information on job / employment scams, or to report a scam, please visit the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre at http://www.antifraudcentre-centreantifraude.ca/index-eng.htm.

    Fraud Prevention Month 2016 Jobs Mystery Shoppers needed! $150/hour! Seems too good to be true, doesn’t it? It probably is. Students can often be targeted by easy money – it’s appealing to do little work for a lot of money. Encourage family and friends to fully research a potential employer. Remember that a legitimate employer would never send funds to an employee and then request that a portion be returned. #FPM2016 www.antifraudcentre-centreantifraude.ca/fraud-escroquerie/job-emploi-eng.htm

    #TrafficTuesday – Did you know? Your driving can be impaired by more than just alcohol. Illegal drugs and prescription drugs can also cause impairment. Any legal medication dispensed from a pharmacist will have warnings if the drug has impairing effects. Be especially careful when starting a new prescription or if your dosage has been increased. If you are not sure about your prescription and its effects, pay attention to how you feel when you first take it. If you don’t feel ok to drive, make alternate transportation arrangements.

    Halifax District RCMP is looking for a suspicious person after a female driver approached school children twice this morning at two different locations. At approximately 7:50 a.m., a vehicle stopped near the corner of MacDougall Dr. and Prince St. in Lower Sackville with its rear driver's side door open. The female driver, and lone occupant of the vehicle, was observed by a passerby talking to a female youth who was walking on the sidewalk in the direction of A.J. Smeltzer Junior High. The interaction gave the passerby the impression that the driver was asking the youth to get into the vehicle. The youth continued to walk down the sidewalk and the vehicle drove away. At approximately 8:15 a.m., a female student reported being approached by a female driver at the corner of Stokil Dr. and Nordic Cres. near Leslie Thomas Junior High in Lower Sackville. The student reported that on her way to school, the vehicle pulled up next to her and rolled down the rear passenger side window. The female driver then spoke to the student over her shoulder, possibly saying "get in the car" or "come on, get a drive." The student refused and continued on to school. The woman driver in both incidents is described as having black or dark brown hair with tight curls, and was wearing large sunglasses. The vehicle is described as a newer-model dark grey or black four-door sedan, possibly a Toyota Corolla or Honda Civic. Police are asking anyone with information about these incidents or the suspect to call Halifax District RCMP or Halifax Regional Police at (902) 490-5020 or Nova Scotia Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477). You can also text TIP202 + your message to 'CRIMES' (274637) or submit a tip by Secure Web Tips at www.crimestoppers.ns.ca. Calls to Crime Stoppers are not taped or traced and if police make an arrest and lay charges based on a tip, callers qualify for a cash award.

    Halifax District RCMP has laid charges following an incident in East Preston yesterday. Just before noon on March 21, a vehicle went off the road on Highway 7 in East Preston. Two citizens who witnessed the collision assisted the lone male driver by helping him out of the vehicle. A female motorist passing by also stopped to offer her assistance. Her two-year-old child was in a car seat in the back of the vehicle. The male driver jumped into the female's vehicle without her permission and demanded to be driven to Sobeys in Cole Harbour. The female became fearful and drove the man to his requested destination. Once he left the vehicle, she called police immediately. Neither the female or child was injured. RCMP officers responded and took 39-year-old Sherlock Jaydee Downey of East Preston into custody without incident. He is facing several charges, including: -Impaired Driving -Kidnapping -Mischief -Taking a Vehicle Without Consent Downey will appear in Dartmouth Provincial Court later today.
