  • 1 of those files was an abandoned sailboat found floating near Finisterre Island;
  • 1 of those files was a motorcycle collision that resulted in a fire;
  • 2 of those files were hang-up 911 calls;
  • 3 of those file were requests for the police to check the well being of friends or relatives.

During the current firearms amnesty, the Bowen Island RCMP would like to remind people NOT to turn in firearms at the detachment. If you have a firearm to relinquish, please call the non-emergency line, 604-947-0516 and you will be given instructions on how to safely surrender your firearm. We will greet you in a very different manner if you arrive at the detachment holding a firearm than if you call ahead and arrange to have it picked up.
