REPORTING · 28th December 2011
One of the most popular features on this website, one desired by Kitimatians and Rupertites, is the daily RCMP report of activities within the tiny hamlet of Terrace.
Due to holiday scheduling, those in charge of compiling this information (and those who take up the slack during the week), on duty staff are engaged in more critical functions to maintain peace and good order.
According to Staff Sgt. Rob Pritchett the daily reports will be returning shortly.
One new piece of information he was able to share was the addition of three new female officers soon to be added to our Terrace detachment. Two are rookie constables coming to our fine community to get their feet wet and another is being transferred here to join her husband, also an officer.
The Terrace RCMP are part of the Terrace family and like our new Detachment commander, Inspector Dana Hart and his wife, Sgt. Pam Scott, who now heads up the Terrace Region Traffic Services, the RCMP families are building their lives here as well. Hart and Scott both spoke during a media conference how they intend to retire here and make Terrace their last stop.
With this attitude we can be comforted knowing the intention is to make life here enjoyable for their families and ours. It was Inspector Hart who initiated the daily reports on his team’s activities. He stated he felt it would be helpful for the community to have a better sense of what they did. His thoughts seem to have been proven insightful as the comments on the stories and the new community engagement and awareness has attracted mostly positive responses. This is reflected in the requests from citizens in Kitimat and Prince Rupert to have the same style of reporting.

According to Wikipedia:
"A hamlet is a type of settlement. The definition of hamlet varies by country. It usually refers to a small settlement in a rural area, or a component of a larger settlement or municipality. Hamlets are typically unincorporated communities." So I guess we have the Hamlet of Thornhill and the town of Terrace.
a tiny hamlet???

Not like we didn't know what the RCMP have to put up with while patrolling, but good to be reminded about it and sincerely appreciate what they do for this Community.
They should have a bell at Timmy's for when they're having their well deserved break while still being on call... to yank the rope - "BOOOOOOONG! ROUNDS ALL AROUND TO THE RCMP!!!"
