Yesterday I reached out to contacts within the RCMP major crime unit (South East Division) on a story I have been developing for some time.
Why is Oliver the focal point for major crime in the South Okanagan and why is this area not staffed adequately with officers investigating major crime and …..not traffic infractions.
The majority of resources for major drug related and target offences are in Kelowna and Penticton – regional hubs.
