Summer beach patrol returns to White Rock

White Rock residents and other beach-goers can expect to see an increased police presence along the waterfront

White Rock residents and other beach-goers can expect to see an increased police presence along the waterfront as the summer weather approaches.

With the onset of warmer weather – and the larger crowds that come with it – White Rock RCMP will increase enforcement along the White Rock promenade, the beach and Marine Drive throughout the summer months.

As well, the city’s tradition of having a mountie in the traditional Red Serge on the promenade will also return; on several dates throughout the summer, RCMP members in the traditional red uniform will make foot patrols between the 14400- and 15600-block of Marine Drive.

The first Red Serge date was Sunday, and others are July 3, 17 and 31, and Aug. 14 and 28.

“This is a unique opportunity in a beautiful setting for residents and tourists to take photos and interact with our local police force,” White Rock RCMP stated in a news release last week.
