Significant increase in prisoners

Boarding home, improved medevac services needed

Call volume for the Rankin Inlet RCMP is up 30 per cent over last year, made even harder due to the detachment’s short staff all 2022.

“We still have a significant increase in call volume,” said Sgt. Patrick Frenette to council Nov. 14.

As of October, there had been 2,211 calls for service to the RCMP in 2022, compared to 1,711 through the same time period last year.

Calls involving alcohol are up 11.6 per cent, while detainees have risen 41.6 per cent, with 65 detainees in October alone.

“Keep in mind, the chargeable offences haven’t gone up significantly,” explained Frenette. “So basically what this statistic means is we’re responding to a lot of intoxicated people in houses and walking down the street. We’re getting calls for service, we’re lodging them and then we’re releasing them shortly after. They’re not necessarily getting charged, but we are having to deal with them.”

Intimate partner violence charges are up 226.6 per cent, but Frenette explained that is mostly due to a change in the way those occurrences are calculated. In the past, a divorced couple who got in a fight years after being divorced would not count toward domestic violence stats, but now they do, he said.

Firearm-related calls are also up 112.5 per cent for a similar reason. Frenette said any time a firearm is found unsafely stowed while police are addressing another issue, that call is now counted toward firearm-related calls.

In October, there were 35 calls for assault recorded, with six calls for sexual assault or sexual offences. There were 109 calls for mischief or property damage, 29 for disturbing the peace and eight for impaired operation of a motor vehicle.

Frenette said an abundance of calls are coming from the same households and for the same individuals, so the department is looking at innovative strategies to fix the root problems, rather than continue returning to the same homes to put a Band-Aid on those situations.

Search and rescue could use support

Coun. Michael Shouldice told council that the search and rescue team in Rankin Inlet works in difficult conditions and are often needing to request more resources. He wondered if it should be a priority to discuss an increase in assets for them.

“They’re just dedicated people that show up, and my goodness, they work with very little and get very little and struggle a lot, is my observation,” said Shouldice.

Medical travel, medevac issues

Coun. Lynn Rudd recently returned from medical travel and came with some significant complaints about the support received.

She said the breakfast vouchers provided were “a joke” with how little they offer and how limited their use is at the Canada Health Sciences Centre, which is an overflow hotel used when the Kivalliq Inuit Centre is full.

She also said with the recent news of medical travellers being stuck overnighting in Rankin Inlet, it was time for the community to finally get its long-sought-after medical boarding home.

“I think it’s high time even a five-to-10-bedroom becomes available for people travelling through Rankin, especially when it’s wintertime,” said Rudd.

Senior administrative officer Darren Flynn chimed in on that point, saying he had just returned from “three weeks of hell” with a health emergency with his spouse, who required a medevac.

“It’s not just what’s being paid, it’s the amount of support that’s out there is nonexistent,” said Flynn, adding that he could afford to find his own solutions, but not everyone could.

Flynn added that his spouse had to wait five days for a medevac, which resulted in further complications.

“We’re seeing it right now with how PPD (Petroleum Products Divison) is out here with late deliveries, I’ve also saw it with the medevac side of things,” said Flynn. “The medevac contract says there’s supposed to be two aircraft here. Well, there aren’t.”

He suggested it needs to be brought to the Department of Health to manage the contract for medevac services.

“It’s nice to say you’ve got a contract, but are you actually managing it?” he asked.

Coun. Megan Pizzo-Lyall reinforced the importance of that, saying “it’s people’s lives at stake.”

Kivalliq News reached out to the Department of Health and asked who holds the current medevac contract in the Kivalliq and what the requirements are for honouring that contract.

The department acknowledged receipt of the email Nov. 16 but, as of deadline, had not provided any further response.
