Trail RCMP reports chilly but quiet week

It was a quiet week for the Trail RCMP as the cold snap led to a freeze on crime.

Police officials said most of their week consisted of wellness checks and patrols for citizens at risk from exposure to the severe cold.

Anyone needing a warm space was directed to the United Church’s warming centre.

“Fortunately, the Trail United Church and its volunteers opened up their hearts and facility with an in-the-nick-of-time warming centre for the duration of the cold snap,” said Sgt. Wicentowich.

“The warming centre was well attended and full every night.”

He also said it’s important to ensure animals are getting proper care when it gets that cold.

On Saturday, police received a report from a SPCA employee about a dog living on the street who was believed to be in distress.

The dog was tied to a parking metre and appeared to have sustained injuries to its paws due to contact with the frozen ground.

The dog’s owner brought it to a temporary shelter to warm up, and the RCMP and SPCA will be monitoring the situation.

“Remember to bring your animals inside during the cold weather for their safety and wellbeing,” said Sgt. Wicentowich.

“Please report any animal welfare concerns to your local SPCA or police agency.”
