As a result of information from local citizens over the past several months, the Lloydminster RCMP, the Lloydminster RCMP Crime Reduction Unit and City of Lloydminster Bylaw Enforcement Officers conducted a traffic operation in the area of the Servus Sports Centre on 12th Street in Lloydminster, on Aug. 23-24.

In the past month, the Lloydminster RCMP received over 20 calls regarding dangerous driving, excessive noise and littering in the area. The Lloydminster RCMP attempted to deal with this behaviour with conventional education in the past, however several dangerous vehicle-related incidents caused the escalation in enforcement.

During the two-day operation, the Lloydminster RCMP served 28 violation tickets, 5 warnings, 1 vehicle towed, 1 bylaw ticket for public urinating, and 1 alcohol related driver’s license suspension under the Alberta Immediate Roadside Sanctions program.  The Lloydminster RCMP would like to advise the public that future enforcement will continue to ensure safe roads and a safe community.

Lloydminster RCMP encourage the public to report any criminal or suspicious activity to police at (780) 808-8400. If you see a crime in progress, dial 911. If you wish to remain anonymous, contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS), online at www.P3Tips.com or by using the “P3 Tips” app available through the Apple App or Google Play Store.
