Pandemic Response Information

23 March 2020

 

 

The Moose Jaw Police Service is committed to providing continued comprehensive policing services as we navigate the challenges of COVID-19.  We are also actively supporting compliance with the Public Health Order issued by the Chief Medical Health Officer.

 

The Public Health Order sets out a number of requirements and is available at:

www.saskatchewan.ca/coronavirus

 

The Moose Jaw Police Service reminds people who have returned from international travel of the order’s mandatory self- isolation requirement. Self- isolation is described at www.saskatchewan.ca/coronavirus:

 

Self- isolation means staying at home and avoiding situations where there is a potential to spread the infection to others: work; school; sporting events; social, cultural and religious gatherings; and public places such as restaurants and malls. You should also avoid public transportation. If you have a pressing necessity and need to leave home, please wear a surgical mask while you are out.

 

The Moose Jaw Police Service, in partnership with the health authorities, will be working with local businesses and individuals affected by this Public Health Order to provide information and assistance in coming into compliance with the order’s provisions.  It will also be visiting locations to ensure compliance is maintained.

 

The Moose Jaw Police Service encourages everyone to become familiar with the provisions of the Public Health Order and follow its requirements to ensure we are all doing our part to keep our community safe and healthy.

 

Rick Bourassa

Chief of Police

The Moose Jaw Police Service will continue to provide all essential emergency services to the community through these challenging time. Though our building at 21 Fairford Street West remains open to the public, we ask that if at all possible general police related inquiries be made by calling the non-emergency line at 306-694-7600, rather than attending the Police Service. For immediate emergency assistance please call 9-1-1.

Until Further notice Criminal Record Checks, Inspection Tickets and Civilian Fingerprinting will be suspended. Where necessary other arrangements may be made by calling 306-694-7611

The Police Service is requesting the cooperation of the public in reporting any symptoms of COVID -19 when using emergency services to assist our members in determining an appropriate response. Additional questions may be asked by officers or communication staff as we aim to ensure everyone’s health and safety.

The Moose Jaw Police Service wants to again reassure the public that we are well trained and prepared to manage our community’s safety in the face of COVID-19. We ask that you consider the best way we can serve you as we work hard to keep our staff safe so that we can keep the community safe.
