Yukon RCMP message on COVID-19

All communities, Yukon – For the safety of Yukoners and our employees, and in an effort to limit the potential spread of COVID-19, Yukon RCMP will be suspending all non-essential police services, effective March 18, 2020.

Non-essential, in this case, means any service the Yukon RCMP offers that does not relate directly to the safety of the public.
