RCMP providing extra support for BBDays

The Quesnel RCMP would like to wish everyone a safe and enjoyable Billy Barker Days.

The Quesnel RCMP would like to wish everyone a safe and enjoyable Billy Barker Days weekend.  Billy Barker Days is a family oriented community event which showcases the best of our community.

The Quesnel RCMP will once again provide an enhanced police presence during this year’s Billy Barker Days to ensure everyone can enjoy this weekend’s festivities.

Extra police resources will be dedicated to patrol the streets and various venues so everyone can enjoy a happy and safe Billy Barker weekend. Additional police resources will be targeting liquor related offences including open liquor in public, public intoxication and impaired driving.

“If you are an adult and plan to drink this Billy Barker Days weekend, be responsible.  Plan ahead and ensure you have a sober and responsible ride home.  Use a designated driver, bring money for a cab or make alternate arrangements to get home safely.  Don’t take a chance – the stakes are too high,” Quesnel RCMP  Constable Krista Vrolyk said.

Police will be conducting traffic road checks throughout the community.

Officers will maintain zero tolerance for impaired driving, seat belt use and aggressive and distracted driving.
