The Antigonish RCMP Detachment Commander applauds officials in Halifax who are discussing the unique challenges of delivering justice in the digital age.   Judges, lawyers, legislators and law enforcement officials from around the world are tackling issues such as cyber-stalking, cyber-bullying and Internet luring at their 29th annual conference.  Staff Sgt Holly Glassford says parents, teachers, students and community leaders must be on the same page because culprits on the other side of the computer screen are very cunning and creative.

 

Glassford recently outlined the detachment’s four priorities for the year during a recent Town Council meeting.  She says along with cyber crime, the RCMP is also focused on road safety, crime reduction and enhancing relationships with First Nations communities.
