The 911-calls and requests for police assistance do not stop for the holidays. Between December 24th and December 25th, Comox Valley RCMP Frontline officers responded to over 60 calls for service in the Comox Valley.

The police reports in the Comox Valley included; 4 abandoned 911-calls, 3 reports of abandoned vehicles, 2 alarms, a couple of dogs on the loose, 3 assaults, 1 found child, 6 calls to assist other agencies (BCEHS, Fire Department), 1 noise complaint, 7 requests to check on the wellbeing of a person, 5 disturbances, 1 extortion report, 2 hazards on local roads, 1 missing person, 1 car crash, 1 report of damage to a vehicle, 1 firearms report, 4 lost/found property reports, 1 report of shots fired, 1 intoxicated person, 8 reports of suspicious circumstances, 2 thefts, 1 theft of a vehicle, 4 traffic complaints, and 3 requests to remove someone from a premises.

It is important to recognize all of the first responders have been working over the holiday season. The season often brings families together to share laughs, exchange gifts, and enjoy festive cheer; however, for some the holiday season can bring stress, sadness and tension. Police officers are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for assistance in a crisis or emergency.
