Sask. RCMP detachments to resume limited counter services

Saskatchewan RCMP would like to advise the public that detachments across the province will resume limited front counter services on Tuesday, August 4.

Members of the public are asked to only attend the detachment in person when it is absolutely necessary and only if you are not showing any signs or symptoms of illness.

Signage at detachment entrances will be posted to inform all visitors of the limited hours of operation, limits on the number of people permitted to wait in the lobby, sanitation and physical distancing and directing the flow of foot traffic.

Three priorities have been identified for Saskatchewan RCMP detachment front counter services, all of which will be offered in compliance with public health guidelines and protocols.

The priority services are as follows:

· Taking complaints

· Criminal Record Checks

· Collision reports

If you require urgent fingerprinting (eg., for persons who require VS/CRC as part of their employment), you will be asked several screening questions to identify any signs or symptoms of sickness. If your urgent request proceeds after the screening, you will be required to wear a surgical mask throughout the process.

Our service delivery and commitment to keeping the people of Saskatchewan safe remains unchanged. We are continually assessing our processes and procedures and are working with Saskatchewan Public Health to ensure the safety of the public and our front-line employees.

Please phone your local detachment in advance to confirm the priority services available, new limited hours of operation or detachment-specific protocols.
