The Carlyle RCMP detachment dealt with several files from Thursday, March 29 to Thursday, April 5.
Staff Sgt. Darren Simons of the Carlyle RCMP detachment reminds members of the public that the gun amnesty continues until April 29.
“If you have firearms you don't want and you want the RCMP to pick them up, please contact us and we will do so,” says Staff Sgt. Simons. “If you bring them in to us, please leave them in your vehicle and a member will come out and pick them up. Please do not carry them from your vehicle to the detachment yourself. It does not look good for someone to approach a police station with a firearm - for any reason.”
An individual called 911 for the purpose of requesting a ride. “We explained to this person that 911 shouldn't be used for the purpose of calling a 'buffalo cab' - which is a nickname for RCMP patrol cars because of the buffalo painted on the vehicles,” says Staff Sgt. Simons with a smile. “Because it doesn't always take you to where you want to go.”
One call to 911 was made by a child playing with a phone, while two other calls were due to SaskTel computer glitches.
