The RCMP is looking for more constables in Hay River.

The request for the required additional funding from the GNWT for such positions is with the government and will be considered in the upcoming budgetary process.

“I’m looking forward to business plans which are coming up in November,” said Hay River North MLA R.J. Simpson. “That’s where I’ll learn whether or not the department has proposed an increase in staffing in Hay River. And I’m hopeful.”

Simpson said nothing has changed since he asked Justice Minister Louis Sebert about the possibility of additional constables in Hay River in the territorial legislature on Sept. 22.
