12 busy hours in Revelstoke

In like a lion, out like a lamb: RCMP in Revelstoke might be hoping the old adage is true after a busy New Year's Eve.

Over a 12-hour-period — 8 p.m. on Dec. 31 to 8 a.m. on Jan. 1 — Mounties responded to 22 "occurencies." 

From urinating in public to an intoxicated person trying to get into the wrong house, as stated in a press release, a list of the calls:

  • Public Mischief
  • Causing a Disturbance (i.e. noise) (x2)
  • False Property/Panic Alarms (x2)
  • Uttering Threats to a Person 
  • By-law incidents – (Public nuisance: fighting, intoxication, urinating in public place) (x3)
  • Assault
  • Consume Liquor in Public (x7)
  • Motor Vehicle Collisions (x2)
  • False 911 call
  • Attempted Break and Enter to Residence (Intoxicated Persons at wrong house!)
  • Missing Person – query to locate
  • Fights (x2)
  • Assist Fire Rescue Services

Police officers also handed out seven tickets for public intoxication; several warnings were issued for distracted driving and other driving infractions; three people were lodged into police cells and released when sober; and one person spent New Year’s Eve in cells due to outstanding warrants.

"The month of December was noticeably busier than previous years," stated Staff Sergeant Kurt Grabinsky in a press release.

"By the end of 2017 the RCMP experienced an increase of 232 calls for service over last year’s level. The Revelstoke RCMP Detachment and the police officers of the RCMP Trans-Canada East Traffic Services, (based out of the Revelstoke Detachment), attended to 49 reportable collisions in December 2017. Two of these collisions also resulted in fatalities."
