Today the RCMP in Nova Scotia released the 2014 Year in Review, a document highlighting numerous activities and successes throughout the year.
The Year in Review details the Nova Scotia RCMP’s progress toward national priorities as well as the 2014 provincial priorities, which include Crime Reduction, Road Safety and Cybercrime.
A number of operational successes are also mentioned, such as charges laid in an international drug trafficking investigation and arrests made in the tragic homicides of Harley Lawrence, Catie Miller and Loretta Saunders.
Other highlights featured include the opening of a detachment in Rawdon, the launch of the Remotely Piloted Aircraft System (RPAS), and the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall’s visit to the Pictou RCMP Detachment.
This year’s report is also a special tribute to honourary Staff Sergeant Andrew Kennedy. Andrew was a special young man who had a lasting impact on Nova Scotia RCMP employees.
‘The 2014 Year in Review is filled with examples of how the RCMP is solving investigations and reducing crime and demonstrates the hard work and commitment of RCMP employees in Nova Scotia,’ says Assistant Commissioner, Brian Brennan, Commanding Officer of the Nova Scotia RCMP. ‘I encourage citizens to take some time to read about what we’ve accomplished. My hope is that it will help you to better understand our role as Nova Scotia’s Provincial Police.’
Under the Nova Scotia Provincial Police Service Agreement, the RCMP is required to produce an annual report each year. The 2014 Year in Review can be found on the RCMP Nova Scotia website at www.rcmp-grc.gc.ca/ns.
