Deep River Police stepping up traffic enforcement


by Vance Gutzman

The Deep River Police Service (DRPS) is cracking down on traffic offences.

Police Chief Dean Duchrow delivered that message to members of the Deep River Police Services Board in his third-quarter report last week.

Police officers, he said, have been stepping up traffic enforcement, particularly along Highway 17, and have laid a significant number of speeding charges as a result over the months of July, August and September.

“When you do come this way, slow down, because we will get you,” Duchrow said of the message the police service is sending to speeding motorists.

The service is also stepping up traffic enforcement in Deep River’s downtown core, particularly in parking lots, where 11 charges have been laid so far this year, compared to 12 in all of 2019.
