September 13, 2016

On September 9, 2016 Blood Tribe Police Service teamed up with Lethbridge Police Service Traffic Unit, Commercial Vehicle Enforcement, Sheriff's Integrated Traffic Unit and the RCMP to conduct a major checkstop operation on the Blood Indian Reserve.

The objective of the operation was to enforce all the traffic statutes and criminal code offences, specifically road-users who jeopardize the safety of the public through their driving behaviour. 102 charges were laid including: child under 18 kg not in a seat belt, suspended driving, no insurance, no driver’s license, failing to produce documents and impaired driving. 12 drivers were found to be suspended and 18 vehicles were towed.

Blood Tribe Police Service would like to thank the partnering agencies and the public for their cooperation during this project.
