2022-7682/2022-7684 – Traffic enforcement
On December 12, 2022, members did traffic enforcement patrols in the downtown area, and saw a woman get out of her car and turn around once she saw them. When police spoke with her, she provided a false name, as she was prohibited from driving. Police served the woman driving documents and towed her car. In a second unrelated instance, members located a driver who was prohibited from driving but not yet served notice. Members issued this driver associated paperwork and a temporary driver licence so they could get their car home.
