Langley RCMP curfew check busts five

Langley Crime Reduction Unit conducted another organized curfew check sweep and found five who were not obeying curfew orders.

On Friday, April 20, Langley Crime Reduction Unit conducted another organized curfew check sweep and found five who were not obeying curfew orders.

Both Langley RCMP and Langley Probation are 100 per cent committed to this partnership and these curfew checks are just one of the positive outcomes that has resulted.

The individuals targeted in these sweeps may include Langley Detachment priority prolific offenders and others living in Langley who report to Langley Probation. These individuals are currently bound by conditions on a variety of court ordered releases including bail, recognizance, conditional sentence orders and peace bonds.

As a component of Langley RCMP’s strategic priority of Safe Homes / Safe Communities, 26 Langley residents who were bound by a court-ordered curfew condition were checked by members of the Crime Reduction Unit. Of these 26, five individuals were not home during their court ordered curfew hours.

Langley RCMP will report the breach to Langley Probation for their consideration of Criminal Code Breach Charges.
