Brought to you by:

ENFIELD: Over the past week (Jan. 10 to 17), East Hants RCMP responded to 92 calls for service.


Over the past week, East Hants members responded to 24 collisions, that is over one/quarter their total calls for service. Of those, 11 occurred on January 13 during poor weather conditions.

Police want to remind motorists to always drive with due care and attention.

Be mindful that although it may be raining or misting, the ground could still be at or below zero, causing ice to form on the road surfaces.

Good winter tires combined with prudent driving habits is preventative medicine.


East Hants RCMP received a complaint on Jan. 16 from a local resident who paid a contractor an advance of $1300 last summer for building supplies and work on a deck.

The homeowner advised they trusted the contractor and therefore thought it OK to advance the money. No work was ever done, and no supplies delivered.

RCMP wish to remind residents to carefully screen any contractor prior to giving advance payment for good and services. Seek references, check with the Better Business Bureau, or pay in installments.
