In the last week, Rimbey RCMP responded to 29 calls for service. These files include, but are not limited to: two assault investigations, one break and enter complaint, six suspicious activity reports, one impaired operation of a motor vehicle investigation, and three mental health related calls.
A public health emergency like we are experiencing can be an extremely stressful time, recently mental health related calls for service are on the rise. A few helpful tips: try to focus on the positive as much as possible, be sure to get enough sleep as lack of sleep can make you feel overwhelmed and make it harder to cope, avoid or limit alcohol which can disrupt sleep patterns and make feelings of stress and anxiety worse. If needed the provincial mental health Helpline is 1-877-303-2642.
On March 27th 2020 at approximately 5:30 p.m. officers were dispatched to a single motor vehicle collision with injuries. The collision involved a snowmobile and two motorists which were thrown from the machine and suffered significant injuries. Both parties were transported to Red Deer Hospital for care. This collision is currently still under investigation, and alcohol is believed to have been a factor.
