File # 2023-14900

The Coquitlam RCMP are currently investigating, what is believed to be, multiple locations associated to unfounded 911 swatting calls. However, the Coquitlam RCMP are treating these calls as serious incidents. Swatting calls are effectively prank phone calls which are a drain on valuable police services and are a punishable criminal offence.

Civilians are asked to avoid the 1500 block area of Hartley Avenue, Coquitlam to allow our investigators to follow all available leads. Please call the Coquitlam RCMP at 604-945-1550 with any information on these offences and quote file 2023-14900.
