Date of Release:  January 16, 2013

(Thunder Bay, ON)  The Nishnawbe-Aski Police Service North East Region is advising the citizens of the Nishnawbe-Aski Nation who will be travelling on the James Bay winter roads that regular police patrols will once again be instated.

Winter roads and snowmobile trails will be patrolled to promote Safe Use, to enforce Provincial Offences such as Alcohol bootlegging, and to enforce Criminal Code offences such as Impaired Driving and Drug Trafficking.

Possession of drugs and/or alcohol for sale and distribution in the northern communities is not a Victimless Crime.  The Nishnawbe-Aski Police encourage the public to either contact the local NAPS Detachment or contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) with any information on the illegal transportation of drugs and alcohol. 

If you have any comments about the winter roads please call the NAPS Non-Emergency Toll-Free Number 1-855-847-NAPS (6277) and leave your important message.

For further information, please contact:
