Ridge Meadows RCMP
Celebrate with us, Logan Lay’s “Police Chief for a Day” journey!
Logan is such an inspirational individual who is helping us raise awareness for our “Cops for Cancer” fundraising ride in 2017. Both Logan and her family have committed to raising cancer awareness by sharing Logan’s incredible story and struggles over the last 12 years. Logan came prepared for her role as “Chief of Police” for the day and we hope you enjoy seeing her “inspect the troops” and “policing our waterways”. We are touched by Logan’s story and her amazing family and we hope you are too! If you wish to help support our “Cops for Cancer” riders – Cpl. Tony Vanags and Cst. Gregg Holland.

Incident markers that are displayed, are positioned at their approximate locations. By default a filter is applied to the map so that only incidents which have occurred within the last 14 days of available data, are displayed. This default filter can be modified to display a range of dates, available within the Property Crime dataset. Incidents are easily filtered by File Number, Date and Crime Type by clicking on the ‘Apply a Filter’ button, which is located in the bottom left corner of the map.
The RCMP releases statistics on crime in Maple Ridge every quarter.
