West Shore RCMP, View Royal Fire Rescue begin boat patrol at Thetis Lake

RCMP also teaming up with CRD bylaw officers at popular summer locations

West Shore RCMP will be increasing its patrols on foot and on water at popular summer locations.

Officers are teaming up with Captial Regional District bylaw officers to patrol parks and will be joining View Royal Fire Rescue on boats to patrol the water at Thetis Lake.

“We know that our parks in the West Shore are frequented by both locals and tourists in the summer season,” said Const. Nancy Saggar, West Shore RCMP media relations officer.

“We routinely receive calls for service in these high traffic areas. Having an enforcement presence in these areas will assist in making sure park-goers are able to enjoy their visit.”
