Public consultation has become a priority for the RCMP in Saskatchewan and the Kindersley RCMP has wrapped up town hall meetings in its three largest communities.

The Kindersley RCMP held three town hall meetings in February and March starting with a town hall on Feb. 27 in Kindersley.

The police detachment held additional town hall meetings on March 21 in Kerrobert and on March 27 in Eston.

Each of the town halls was an opportunity for the detachment to share its policing priorities for 2018, but the Town of Kindersley advertised the town hall in February to be about new cannabis legislation as the municipality is considering its option to have a permit for a cannabis retailer in the community.

The town halls in Kerrobert and Eston were advertised as an opportunity for the detachment to share its priorities for 2018, and also for people to ask questions. There were three RCMP members at the town hall in Eston.

Staff Sgt. Ray Blais of the Kindersley RCMP was at the town hall meeting, along with Const. Mike Hill of the Eston RCMP. The two local members were joined by Staff Sgt. Greg Abbott of the RCMP Central District Command based in Saskatoon.
