The Carlyle RCMP detachment will hold a Town Hall Meeting in Carlyle, Tuesday, March 6 at 6:30 p.m. in the Carlyle Memorial Hall.
Detachment Commander Staff Sgt. Darren Simons says: “We're hoping to do three other Town Hall meetings - in addition to the Carlyle event - within the detachment area. We want to hear from our communities about their concerns and we encourage everyone to attend. “
“It is our desire that the RCMP focuses our efforts in the proper direction to meet the expectations of the communities we serve,” explains Simons. “We are hoping that this meeting and subsequent meetings throughout our detachment area will give community members the opportunity to provide input in developing policing priorities.”
“This information will then assist us in meeting the expectations of the communities and citizens we work with to make our communities safer and more productive,” he adds. “We desire true engagement, ensuring community input is acknowledged.”
