In 1932, when the Royal Canadian Mounted Police became New Brunswick’s provincial police force, J Division consisted of 127 members located across the province. Today, more than 1100 men and women provide frontline policing, specialized services and administrative and operational support for the RCMP in New Brunswick.
Our members and employees are committed to providing the citizens of New Brunswick with the best possible policing service, and our overall policing goal is to make New Brunswick the safest province in Canada. As you will read in the 2009- 2010 Year in Review: Becoming Canada’s Safest Province, the RCMP’s provincial Crime Reduction Strategy is helping us take significant strides towards reaching our goal.
While crime reduction techniques have proven successful in lowering crime in New Brunswick, another significant component of our overall strategy is crime prevention. You will read about several examples of this throughout the report, including the work our community program officers (CPOs) are doing with various community groups to work with youth at risk.
There is also significant work being done to reduce the illegal drug trade in New Brunswick. RCMP members are working hand-in-hand with other law enforcement agencies to identify those individuals in the drug trade, and gather evidence to arrest and charge them. These efforts continue to have a positive impact on our communities, particularly on our youth, who are frequently targeted by drug dealers.
In addition to the type of work being done by our District Policing and Codiac Regional Police members, J Division’s Federal units are also contributing greatly to making our province safe. They are doing so by combating organized crime and disrupting cross-border crime such as human smuggling and the illicit importation of illegal drugs, counterfeit merchandise and contraband tobacco.
We are also working hard to help make our roads and highways safer. Traffic safety continues to remain one of our top priorities. The number of fatalities on our roadways is decreasing, but every year, far too many people are still killed in crashes as a result of not wearing their seatbelts, being impaired, speeding or not paying attention. The RCMP will continue to utilize enforcement and education to reduce deaths and serious injuries on our roads.
We know that becoming the safest province in the country will take more than just the efforts of the RCMP. We have, and will continue, to work with our partners to develop strategies to reduce and prevent crime in the communities we serve. The men and women of the RCMP look forward to continuing to work with you so that we can soon call New Brunswick the safest province in Canada.
