2011 WINTER ROAD PATROLS BY NISHNAWBE-ASKI POLICE Print

(Thunder Bay, ON)  The Nishnawbe-Aski Police Service is advising the citizens of the Nishnawbe-Aski Nation who will be travelling on the 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.

We encourage any person to contact your local NAPS Detachment, Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477), or the Ontario Provincial Police Communications Centre at 1-888-310-1122 with any information on the illegal transportation of drugs and alcohol.
