Summer safety tips

Kamloops & District Crime Stoppers and Kamloops RCMP offer these safety tips for a safe and enjoyable summer!

Boating Safety

It's the time of year for boating fun.  Kamloops RCMP reminds boaters to always wear your life jacket, don't just carry in onboard; don't drink or use cannabis and boat- boat operators face the same consequences as motor vehicle drivers when found to be impaired and, always operate your craft at a safe speed.

Hiking safety

Make your hike safe by telling someone where you are going; never hike by yourself, know the physical requirements of the hike in advance and ensure you have good physical and emotional conditioning; bring enough water and food; have a source of communication if you need help and have knowledge of what to do if you meet a wild animal.


Kamloops RCMP has received several complaints about advanced fee fraud schemes.  These involve solicitations that encourage potential victims to provide personal information such as signatures or bank account information, and to pay certain advance fees, often referred to as "processing fees".  In return, the potential victim is promised sums of money which the scammer has no intention of paying.
