                  An assault occurred in the Carlyle area. Members responded and dealt with the individual the call involved. It was determined to be a Mental Health Act file and the individual was lodged for a brief period at the detachment where the RCMP ensured the individual obtained their medication.

                  There was an assault with a weapon reported in Carlyle. It occurred during a social event at a residence where marijuana was being used. An argument developed and police were called to the house. Those in attendance refused to cooperate.


                  RCMP assisted EMS to a call in the Wawota area; both emergency services were called off before arrival.

                  Members assisted with a Child Welfare matter.

                  Two Mental Health Act matters are currently under investigation.

                  RCMP were involved in a proactive meeting with an establishment in Carlyle that serves alcohol relating to drinking and driving. Drivers can be charged if they are tested and blow over 0.08 and a roadside suspension can be given out at 0.04 to 0.08; the roadside suspension is for 72 hours. When testing is done a roadside screening device tests for a reading of 0 to 0.04 for a warning and from 0.049 to 0.099. If the driver blows above a 0.08 they will be taken to the detachment for an exact sample. The roadside screening test includes 0 to 0.04 as Graduated Drivers are not allowed to have any alcohol in their system when behind the wheel.

                  An off-duty member observed an interaction between a person on a no contact order with an individual. The member used discretion and told the person on the no contact order to turn themselves in as there were also warrants out for them. The individual refused, so was arrested and lodged for failing to comply.
