The RNC will complete its jurisdictional expansion in western Newfoundland effective Monday, June 30, 2024 at 12:01 a.m. 

There is no change to 9-1-1 services. As always, dial 9-1-1 in case of emergency.

Effective June 30, the municipalities of Cox’s Cove, Gilliams, Humber Arm South, Hughes Brook, Irishtown-Summerside, Lark Harbour, Little Rapids, McIvers, Meadows, Pasadena, Steady Brook and York Harbour will become new areas served by the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary. This is the second and final phase of expansion for the RNC in western Newfoundland, with the first phase taking place on February 1, 2024 for the communities of Massey Drive and Mount Moriah. 

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police will continue to maintain a presence in the region, with the continuation of the Corner Brook detachment for specialized and federal policing services, as well as the RNC/RCMP Joint Forces Operation West.

All residents with ongoing files reported to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police prior to June 30, 2024, will remain with the RCMP until concluded, unless otherwise notified. Residents should continue engaging with the appropriate police agency that is handling their file.

The Government of Newfoundland and Labrador recognizes the Royal Canadian Mounted Police for its years of dedication and commitment to the residents of western Newfoundland. Together with communities, both police agencies, and the Government of Canada, the province is working to deliver services in the most effective and efficient way possible to ensure all Newfoundlanders and Labradorians feel safe and secure.
