CORNWALL — The RCMP Cornwall Detachment is issuing a public notice with respect to its extensive patrol operations on the St. Lawrence Seaway.
As a result of the temporary border closure for non-essential travel between Canada and the United States, the RCMP has increased its land and marine border patrols in Cornwall and in the Stormont-Dundas and Glengarry area in an effort to secure the Canada-US border and deter any smuggling activity. Members work to identify, interdict and stop the flow of illegal persons, drugs, guns and other commodities across the border. They also ensure that boaters are complying with any border restrictions related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
While the border is temporarily closed to non-essential travel, the RCMP Cornwall Detachment’s Border Integrity Unit continues to maintain the safety of the border between the ports of entry. If you have any information regarding criminal activity in your area, you can contact the Cornwall RCMP at 1-800-387-0020 or call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
