The Comox Valley RCMP were kept busy overnight Thursday, responding to almost 50 calls for service.

Although most people in the Comox Valley behaved as they enjoyed the Halloween festivities, many did not. Some of the calls to the RCMP involved fireworks, loud parties, assaults and vandalism, many of those involving the abuse of alcohol.

Six people were arrested and spent the night in police cells.

The Comox Valley RCMP will continue to plan ahead and work with all resources available to ensure a safe community. on Halloween night the RCMP had help from not only the extra paid staff, but also many volunteers from the auxiliary RCMP and the Citizens on Patrol (COPS).

“We were also fortunate once again to partner with the fire departments, BC Ambulance, the City of Courtenay, the Town of Comox, the Village of Cumberland and the regional district in the planning stages,” said Const. Nicole Hall. “This joint effort was most appreciated and the night enjoyed by many more in our communities thanks to everyone’s dedication.”
