The public is often concerned when they hear police officers have released suspected drug traffickers without immediately forwarding charges. Due to the Jordan decision caselaw of 2016, police require time to compile a fulsome report which is then submitted to Public Prosecution Service of Canada for their review and charge approval states Cpl. Jennifer Cooper, Media Relations Officer for the Prince George RCMP.

Prince George RCMP’s Street Crew Unit encourages the public to report any suspicious activity in their area and to use of Crime Stoppers to help identify people involved in trafficking illicit drugs in our community.
