“We are currently speaking with the city to ensure we are in line with their plans,” said detachment commander Insp. Tony Hanson.

South of the Peace River, there’s currently no plan to re-open the Dawson Creek RCMP front counter, staff confirmed.

Front counter services have been suspended since March, when the pandemic began.

The detachments have not been taking in-person complaints, while others services, including police information checks and fingerprinting, have been reduced or suspended.
