The holiday season is a time of celebration and merrymaking.  Drinking and Drugged driving is a danger to everyone on the road.   As part of the 2018 and 2019 holidays, police will be increasing the number of patrols and setting up R.I.D.E checks to reach out to all drivers.  If you see an impaired driver on the road call the police right away. If someone you know is about to drive after drinking or taking drugs, take their keys and help them get home safely.  Remember, that the risk isn’t worth it – if you choose to drink alcohol or ingest drugs at a party, don’t drive.  Use a designated driver and have fun but remember to celebrate responsibly.

Drive with Reason this Holiday Season.

Our History

Formal policing by Wikwemikong Constables started in the 1940’s. At that time, they received their authority and warrant from the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (R.C.M.P.). Some of the early police officers were Dominic Odjig, Harry Wabanosse, Ignatius Gabow, Joseph Oshkabewisens and Arthur Jacko.
