Back to school

The Nanaimo RCMP would like to take this opportunity to remind the motoring public, effective Tuesday September 5th, all public schools in Nanaimo will be re-opening, and on Monday August 28th private schools in the Nanaimo area will also be re-opening.

Every year in BC dozens of children and youths will be injured in motor vehicle crashes which occur in school zones or playgrounds. One injured child is too many. One of the objectives of the Nanaimo RCMP Detachment, supported through the enforcement efforts of the Municipal Traffic Unit and patrol officers, is to ensure all children arrive safely at school. Going back to school is always an exciting time for young children and can be very hectic for parents. With that in mind, safety must be paramount to ensure your precious cargo arrives safely at school, said Constable Gary O'Brien of the Nanaimo RCMP.

The following reminders are provided for the safety of all children, motorists, parents, and caregivers.
