Police presence increased for summer

Harrison and Agassiz area getting busier for RCMP as weather warms up

The Agassiz Harrison RCMP are getting ready for another busy summer season. Sgt. Stuart Falebrinza said that over the last few weeks, their file count has started to go up. To stay on top of things, they have started to increase patrols for the summer season.

Over the last week there has also been a couple of thefts from vehicle.

On April 28, the Agassiz RCMP received a complaint about a theft from unlocked vehicle on Esplanade Avenue in Harrison. Some personal items were stolen.
