PORT ALICE – There will continue to be a police presence in Port Alice, says Staff Sgt. Anna Marie Mallard.

“We are continuing to work with the Village of Port Alice for a more efficient service,” said Mallard. “We are meeting with the mayor this week and we;ll find ways to work with the community.”

Mallard amde the comments after community members expressed fear they would not have police coverage, following an announcement that ppolicing services would be dispatched out of Port Hardy.

“I undersatnd the fear around thinking there will be no police in the community,” said Mallard. “But it is not the case. There will be a police presence. There will still be community involvement, there will still be a policing presence and there will still be a detachment office.”

Mallard said the RCMP homes in Port Alice will still be occupied by police officers but some of their duties may include Port Hardy. As well, when Port Alice officers are off duty, Port Hardy officers may attend in Port Alice.

“There is lot of good work to be done and it can be done with more people,” said Mallard.
