A situation involving a person in crisis was brought to a safe resolution by RCMP officers in Vernon on Tuesday morning.

On Tuesday, February 13th, 2024, around 11 a.m., police were called to a residence on 32nd St to assist with a person who was experiencing a mental health or drug related crisis. Police were also told that the man was in possession of a weapon and was acting in a manner that was dangerous to himself and others inside the building.  Several frontline officers responded to the location and after making initial contact with the person, successfully de-escalated the situation which safely ended with the man surrendering peacefully to police.
