North Battleford residents should expect to see more RCMP presence in the city over the next two days.
Saskatchewan RCMP Traffic Services, in partnership with Saskatchewan Government Insurance, will host the Selective Traffic Enforcement Program (STEP) in the city on July 23rd and 24th.
STEP brings police officers from all over the province to take traffic enforcement action to various cities. Police will be set up in different parts of the Battlefords area and will pull over vehicles in violation of traffic laws.
They will be focusing on priorities such as impaired, distracted and aggressive driving as well as seatbelt violations.
“We want to keep our roads safe – that is our main focus. We will continue to take every opportunity to work with our partners and make sure we can do just that,” Sgt. Doug MacDougall of Saskatchewan RCMP Traffic Services says.
Saskatchewan RCMP Traffic Services encourages anyone who witnesses impaired driving or aggressive driving to phone their local police detachment or dial 9-1-1.
