Big Valley Jamboree Wrap-Up

The 25th anniversary of Big Valley Jamboree (BVJ) from a Policing perspective was once again a success. Given the volume of people attending along with the amount of alcohol consumption that occurs at this four day event, the total number of incidents involving serious criminal activity is considered low.

This year at BVJ 46 people were arrested for a variety of offences as compared to 35 arrests the previous year. The total arrests are comprised of people who may have been arrested for a violation under the Criminal Code, under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act, under the Gaming and Liquor Act or arrested on outstanding warrants.

At BVJ this year there were a total of 32 Criminal Code charges laid as compared to 25 the previous year. There were 21 people charged with those 32 Criminal Code offences. There were three people charged with impaired driving, nine people were charged with assault, five people with breaching their existing conditions, three were charged with weapon offences and one was charged with an indecent act.

In 2016 there were no charges laid under the Controlled Drugs & Substances Act. This year there were 10 drug related charges primarily due to a traffic stop within the campsite which resulted in three men being charged with multiple drug trafficking offences.

In 2017 there were 25 individuals arrested for public intoxication under the Gaming and Liquor Act. With such a low number of arrests relative to the number of patrons consuming alcohol at the event, Police are clearly not focused on arresting people for being intoxicated in public. Of the 25 people arrested eight people were arrested by Police because they simply were lost and could not find their way back to their campsite. These people were not charged but simply held in custody and released when they were sober enough to find their way home. The other 17 arrested under the Act were those who clearly stood apart from other patrons by either committing another violation or causing issues with other patrons or staff.

Violation tickets under either the Gaming & Liquor Act, Traffic Safety Act or under City of Camrose Bylaws were similar in volume to those that were issued the previous year. In 2016 there were 168 violation tickets issued as compared to 140 this year. Offences range from stunting, 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 payment option.

It is often overlooked during BVJ weekend that the Police service also continues with their 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 Police in the city were kept very busy engaged in their duties. In addition to the regular volume of calls for service from the public, Police were involved in investigating two separate assaults involving weapons, two serious motor vehicle collisions, two impaired driving investigations, and two separate traffic stops that resulted in multiple charges under the Criminal Code, the Controlled Drugs & Substances Act and Traffic Safety Act violations.

The Camrose Police Service considers it an honor to represent the city of Camrose at the BVJ event. The majority of the interactions between Police and the public are favorable and the members often receive compliments on a job well done and towards the city for hosting such a popular event each year on the August long-weekend. Public safety is why the Police need to be involved in such a large event and when the weekend is over and there have been no reports of serious injuries or substantial risk to public safety, then the event from a Police perspective is considered a success!
