Maple Ridge B.C. - Utilization of intelligence driven and enforcement action is the focus of Project Roundtable.
Since the beginning of August, the Ridge Meadows RCMP have been utilizing a planned and methodical approach to intelligence sharing with the specific intention of disruption of criminal activity in the Cities of Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows. Ridge Meadows RCMP continue to hold individuals accountable for their criminal actions to ensure public safety.
Every unit and member of the detachment have a role to play and all hands are on deck with the strategic deployment and utilization of resources.
All four of the Frontline watches have executed a total of 64 warrants in a huge warrant round up ensuring that individuals committing criminal activity in the city are being held accountable for their actions. In addition, they have prioritized curfew checks of prolific offenders and concentrated their proactive patrols in high crime locations.
The Road Safety Target Team has conducted high risk driving vehicle stops on offenders known to Police. In one instance this resulted in an 8-month driving prohibition, and numerous violation tickets being issued to the driver for numerous driving offences and resulted in his vehicle being impounded.
The Specialized Response Team has been completing enhanced and highly visible patrols of the downtown core, problem residences, and completing bar walks to decrease opportunities of recidivism by prolific offenders. The increase in curfew checks on violent offenders will ensure offenders are held accountable.
"The Ridge Meadows RCMP will continue using an "all hands on deck" approach to share criminal intelligence across our uniform and major crimes policing teams. The use of analytical data and intelligence sharing will aid us in targeting our most prolific offenders and high crime locations". states Superintendent Mehat. "This project will target our most prolific offenders to ensure community safety and wellbeing."
