Quiet Halloween

Police responded to 32 calls for service on Halloween, a workload not considered particularly heavy

Police responded to 32 calls for service on Halloween, a workload not considered particularly heavy for the annual celebration.

The calls were quite typical, intoxicated people causing disturbances both in public places, and causing problems at private house parties, said Cpl. Poppy Hallam of the Campbell River RCMP detachment.

“We had a couple of calls about mischief and one for loud fireworks on a street corner,” Cpl. Hallam said.

In addition, two people received Immediate Roadside Prohibitions as a result of their choice to drive while impaired.

“Overall, it was a good night,” Hallam said.
