The Summer Village has been reviewing policing options and what is the best fit for our community.
The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) service is in place throughout the province. The Summer Village has always relied on the RCMP to serve and protect. This service is greatly valued and will continue.
In the past, an enhanced service has been provided through the Pigeon Lake Protective Services - a program with a Peace Officer. With only two Summer Villages participating in this program, this model was not financially viable. There is no longer a Peace Officer hired under this program.
Council has entered into an Enhanced RCMP agreement. This will give dedicated RCMP hours, above their regular service, directly to the Summer Village.
Contact information can be found under the Protective Services Tab at the top of our website.
