We know holiday festivities will look a little bit different this year, but something that will always stay the same is our commitment to keeping you and your loved ones safe this holiday season.
Community health and safety is a shared responsibility, which is why the Saskatchewan RCMP and its northern detachments including Meadow Lake, Prince Albert, Lac La Ronge are working closely in collaboration with local public health officials including the Northern Inter-Tribal Health Authority (NITHA).
As police officers, we are responsible for ensuring our actions do not put others at risk while doing our part to slow the spread of the virus. We need you to do the same and this starts by following and staying informed of the new provincial Public Health Orders that are in place.
"As Saskatchewan's provincial police force, we will continue to be present in your community to provide services and help to ensure community safety 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and throughout the holiday season," says Supt. Ted Munro, of the Saskatchewan RCMP's North District Management Team. "We continue to work closely with health officials including NITHA to investigate calls for service that violate the PHO to help maintain public health and safety."
"Our message from NITHA remains the same," says Tara Campbell, NITHA's Executive Director, "Help us keep your loved ones safe by doing your part in reducing the spread of COVID-19: wash your hands regularly, practice physical distancing, wear a face mask in indoor public spaces, limit your contact with others as much as possible, stay home if you are feeling sick, and; abide by all public health guidelines. Let us spread peace, hope and kindness this holiday season, not the COVID -19 virus."
The Saskatchewan RCMP and NITHA would like to thank communities in northern Saskatchewan and beyond for their support and we encourage everyone to continue following guidance from local public health officials in your communities to ensure everyone can remain healthy.
