The Thompson Local News

No one should be surprised when the RCMP does nothing about things people report on Facebook.


Inspector Kevin Lewis, the officer in charge of the Thompson RCMP detachment, spoke to Arctic Radio News and said that social media isn’t the best way to go when you’re looking for action to be taken. He added that when someone posts on Facebook about crime, it stays there and doesn’t go to the RCMP.


Inspector Lewis said that when people do report crime, it helps the RCMP better combat the issues. He added that when crime is reported to the detachment, they can look at hotspots and identify trends.


He said that without reports being made directly to the detachment, they can’t use the information in their strategies.


Inspector Lewis said that all crime should be reported to the detachment, whether it’s an assault or vandalism.
