The community of Tumbler Ridge is protected by a local detachment of Royal Canadian Mounted Police. Since the origin of the town, a concept of crime prevention by environmental design (CPTED) has been in place to control crime. The success of this program has been vast enough that Canada uses our community as a model for other communities to prevent crime.
The emergency contact number for the RCMP is 911.
RCMP can be contacted at 250-242-5252 in a non-emergency situation.
