On Wednesday, February 22, 2017 Ridge-Meadows RCMP members participated in a number of anti-bullying #pinkshirtday activities. We believe that it is important for police to send positive messages around empowerment and leadership and as a result committed to attending several local schools. Local RCMP members handed out chocolates to students, talked about the topic of bullying, engaged with leadership groups in high schools as well as donned pink stripes on their uniform and on the push bar of our police vehicles. Our efforts were to raise the profile of anti-bullying and to broadcast strong leadership messaging.
The Ridge Meadows Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) detachment is responsible for policing in Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows. The current Ridge Meadows RCMP Master Plan identifies community priorities in crime reduction, with a focus on the reduction of property crime, delivering policing services with sensitivity to social issues, engagement and interaction with youth, and enforcement and community education around road and traffic safety.
Ridge Meadows RCMP detachment is proud to fully support the regional Integrated teams that; include the Homicide Investigation Team, Police Service Dogs, Collision Reconstruction Team, Emergency Response Team and the Integrated Forensic Identification Team.
