Over the Labour Day long weekend, North Vancouver grade 12 high school students have historically held unsanctioned Pre-Graduation parties in local parks and school grounds.

In the past, police have dealt with large Pre-Graduation parties where students under the influence of alcohol and drugs have caused property damage and injury to themselves and others. With the current hot weather, extreme dry conditions, and fire ban in place, there is concern that a lack in judgement may lead to potential fires.

Last year’s strategic efforts and support from the North Vancouver School District, Parks and Recreation, and the North Vancouver Fire Department, proved to be successful as no major incident occurred.

Parents and guardians of all grade 12 students are encouraged by the police to talk to their children about the potential negative consequences that may occur when poor choices are made with drugs and alcohol, said Supt. Chris Kennedy, Officer in Charge of the North Vancouver RCMP. This advice is proven at any time but certainly wherever Pre-Graduation parties are concerned.

A comprehensive Operational Plan will be activated by the North Vancouver RCMP to deal with any potential incidents that may occur during the upcoming long weekend. An increased high visible police presence will be seen in various key areas, including local parks and schools. Officers will be proactive in enforcement of all liquor, traffic violations and local by-laws.
