BVJ Wrap-Up

From a policing perspective the 26th annual Big Valley Jamboree (BVJ) was a success. Given the volume of people attending this four day festival, the number of incidents involving criminal activity was low. This year, 25 people were arrested for a variety of offences as compared to 46 arrests in 2017. This total includes people who were arrested for violations of the Criminal Code, Controlled Drugs and Substances Act, Gaming, Liquor and Cannabis Act as well as those arrested on outstanding warrants. There were a total of 18 Criminal Code charges laid in 2018 as compared to 32 in 2017. There were 9 people charged with those 18 Criminal Code offences. One person was charged with impaired driving, three people were charged for assaults against police officers, one person was charged with assault, one male was charged with sexual assault, one person was charged for possessing a prohibited weapon (brass knuckles), one male was charged with assault with a weapon and one man for breaching his release conditions. In 2018 there were 14 individuals arrested for public intoxication under the Gaming, Liquor & Cannabis Act. This number is down from 25 in 2017. Of the 14 people arrested, 11 were arrested by police because they simply were lost and could not find their way back to their campsites. These people were not charged but simply held in custody and released when they were sober enough to safely find their way home. The other three were those who clearly stood apart from other patrons by either causing a disturbance or other issues with patrons or staff. Violation tickets under either the Gaming, Liquor & Cannabis Act, Traffic Safety Act or under City of Camrose Bylaws were similar in volume to those issued the previous year. In 2017 there were 140 violation tickets issued as compared to 159 this year. Offences range from driving without a license, vehicle equipment violations, open liquor in a vehicle or non-designated area, public urination or fighting in public. Those who were contravening such laws were issued a violation ticket with a voluntary payment option. It is often overlooked during BVJ weekend that the Camrose Police Service continues with its responsibilities within the city of Camrose. Each year members of the police service are assigned to the city and remain dedicated to the needs of Camrose. This year officers working in the city were kept busy. In addition to the regular volume of calls for service, police were involved in investigating a credit card fraud resulting in 22 charges, as well as a counterfeiting complaint which resulted in two people being arrested for passing counterfeit currency. Both situations involved criminals who have been active in other jurisdictions in the province. The Camrose Police Service considers it an honor to police the Big Valley Jamboree. This year we were fortunate to once again partner with the Calgary Police Service, Medicine Hat Police Service, Lethbridge Police Service, and Alberta Sheriffs.  The officers working at BVJ, as well as those working in the city, performed their duties in a respectful, professional manner.  We have received many positive comments regarding their interactions with the public during the August long-weekend.  We thank everyone who came out to enjoy the music and atmosphere.  We also thank our partners, as well as the promoters and volunteers involved in this year’s event.  We congratulate you on another successful BVJ!
