#BellLetsTalk is about raising awareness for mental health. Today, the RNC and our first responder partners came together in solidarity to join the conversation.

Working as a police officer, or as any first responder, can be difficult. Often, first responders are faced with challenges that can impact their own mental health, such as operational stress injuries. Let’s keep the conversation going and #EndTheStigma! Reach out, we’re here to help.

RNC Request the Public’s Assistance During the Opening of Food Stores in St. John’s

(ST. JOHN’S, NL), January 20, 2020 – The Royal Newfoundland Constabulary (RNC) are seeking the assistance and cooperation of the public as the city of St. John’s allows for the opening of grocery stores and other food stores in St. John’s tomorrow, January 21, 2020, from 10:00 am until 6:00 pm.

The RNC are asking that the public please ride share when at all possible to reduce the number of vehicles on the city roadways, and only drive directly to and from the store. While the RNC understands the public’s need for essentials such as food, there is still great concern for all first responders being able to travel to and from emergency calls for service as there is a potential of gridlock and traffic being impassible on the roadways.

If you are not in need of essentials, please remain off the roads within St. John’s tomorrow to allow for emergency vehicles to safely respond to calls for service in a timely matter.

The State of Emergency is still in effect for St. John’s and the RNC has been, and will continue to enforce it by ticketing drivers where applicable.

A positive Tuesday morning read. #yourRNC 👏🏼

This RNC officer stopped behind a broken vehicle this evening on Pitts Memorial west bound from downtown and stayed there until we were loaded up and gone. With snow taking up the entire shoulder, just past the crest of a hill it was a very dangerous spot and we are super grateful for the help. He also drove the owners to a fuel station down the next ramp so they were in a safe place to call a cab. That was pretty cool. Remember to slow down and move over when you see flashing lights on the shoulder of the road, or even just a broken vehicle in a bad spot. On a nice day in the summer it’s dangerous enough but now we have little shoulder to stop on so moving over is really important.
