The Thompson Local News

According to the officer in charge of the Thompson RCMP detachment, some of the stats in their recently released quarterly report can be misleading.


Inspector Kevin Lewis delivered the report to Thompson City Council recently, as the document details the detachments activities over the last quarter.


Inspector Lewis later spoke to Arctic Radio News, and said that one of the potentially misleading statistics is the sharp rise in calls to service over the same time period two years ago.


Lewis said that after two years, some of the less urgent calls for service are purged from the system.


That means when they went to compile the report, calls from 2016 had been purged. He said that while the number of calls did not double, as the report indicates, it did rise slightly here in Thompson.


Lewis added that a call for service is logged every time a youth in a group home isn’t back by curfew, as RCMP members are called at that point to locate them.


Inspector Lewis also spoke on the rise in damp house visits, a statistic that he said is a very good thing.


He said that the damp house, which is located at 95 Cree Road, is transitional housing that is run in partnership with the CMHA. The house provides a place to stay for those who may have addictions issues, as well as chance to regain control of their lives.


Lewis said that visits to the damp house allow the RCMP to have a positive interaction with people who they normally would not have one with.
