Ashcroft RCMP – Name our new police vehicle


2023-11-17 14:26 PST

Ashcroft RCMP are requesting the help of local youth to help name the newest addition to the detachment – our new police vehicle.

The new police vehicle - AS5101

In October, 2023, Ashcroft RCMP became the proud owners of a shiny new Ford pickup. For now, it is affectionately named, ‘AS5101’, but we think you can do better! In partnership with the Elizabeth Fry Society, your local detachment is running a contest to see who can come up with the best name for the new addition to the community.

Sadly, we don’t have a new police puppy or foal to ask the community to name, said Constable Richard Wright, Ashcroft RCMP. But, we do have a new vehicle and we can’t wait to see the names our local youth come up with.
