CARLYLE - It was so great to see so many people take in the RCMP community BBQ on Friday June 17. Approximately 200 adults, students, and children showed up to the detachment and helped themselves to a free barbecued lunch. The public also were able to pet a few puppies that Bright Eyes Animal Rescue brought. The public was very generous during the BBQ and Bright Eyes Animal Rescue received lots of donations to help their organization. The public also got a first hand look at the police vehicles, as well as Carlyle RCMP’s famous Bed and Breakfast. Plenty of photos and fun was had by everyone who attended.
It was another busy week in traffic enforcement this week and both Carlyle RCMP and Traffic Services were busy enforcing traffic laws. 24 tickets were handed out this week.

It’s okay not to be okay!
This week we had several drug related overdoses and medical emergencies in the area. Some of the drug issues were a result of illicit recreational drugs while some were a result of improper use of prescribed drugs. I want to ensure that if someone needs help the Suicide Prevention is always available in the paper to them. We want to encourage everyone to reach out for help and talk to someone if they can. No matter how bad things may seem, remember that they can always get better. Life can be very difficult to say the least. Please reach out and check in with friends, co-workers, and family to see how they are doing. It’s a perfectly normal question to ask people how they are doing. Don’t let people suffer in silence. If you see someone that you believe needs some help but won’t accept help from you, please let the police or their family know.

Deja-mooo this week in Carlyle as “The Cows” have moved their beef with the RCMP from Moosomin down to Carlyle. On June 17 and 19 “the cows” were causing beef on Highway 13 near Kisbey and again they were reported to be causing mooschief on Highway 9 near Highway 48 Junction. Members attended each time and the gang fled back to their fields like a bunch of cow-herds. By the looks of things, the cows are going to be udderly impossible to deal with again this year.
All summer long the RCMP are going to be searching for kids and youth in the area in order to reward them for good behaviour. Positive behaviours can range from wearing your bike helmet, looking both ways to cross the street, picking up garbage, or even helping their parents carry groceries. These two boys were rewarded for playing nice and being a good role model for other kids.
What do you call it when a prisoner takes his own mugshot?
