In addition to the usual reports below, two members of the Unity RCMP who are also members of the North-Central District Containment Team assisted North Battleford RCMP in a standoff with an armed and intoxicated male, Sunday evening, March 22. The intoxicated male eventually gave up his firearm and turned himself over to the police who had secured the perimeter where the male was located.
As reported by the Battlefords RCMP, “At approximately 4 p.m., the Battlefords RCMP Detachment received a complaint of an intoxicated male threatening to harm himself with a firearm at an address in the 600 block of 102nd Street, North Battleford, Saskatchewan. The male was extremely agitated and threatened to take another occupant of the residence hostage and to harm police and ambulance personnel if they attended. RCMP officers from the Battlefords Detachment, Battlefords Provincial GIS assisted by the “F” Division Containment Team and Police Dog Services formed a secure perimeter around the residence to ensure the safety of all residents in the neighbourhood. RCMP negotiated with the male for the next five hours and the incident drew to a successful close just before 9 p.m. as the male surrendered to the officers on scene without incident.”
A 39-year-old North Battleford male has been charged with a number of firearms and other offences as a result of the incident.
