Melfort RCMP received information from the public of a male matching the description of Julian DEMERS stuck in an approach near the junctions of Highways 41 and 368, near Melfort, Saskatchewan, in late November, 2013. On January 31, 2014, a search of the area located the 1996 Chevrolet Tahoe of Julian DEMERS, stuck in a field southwest of the junction. Julian DEMERS was not found with the vehicle, however, police do not believe foul play was involved at this time. Further searches of the area failed to locate any sign of Julian DEMERS. The investigation is ongoing.
The Melfort RCMP would like to request the assistance of the Public in locating Julian Alban DEMERS who has not been seen or heard from by family since early November 2013. Julian is 32 years of age and was last seen leaving a family members residence in the St. Brieux area. Julian is a Caucasian male approximately 6'3" tall and 195 pounds, slender build with brown thinning hair. It is believed that Julian was wearing the following items at the time of his disappearance; a grey pullover Hoodie with an A&B Concrete logo on the front, brown cargo pants and a red and white Molson Canadian Ball Cap. Julien owns and is believed to be operating a 1996 white Chev Tahoe bearing a Saskatchewan Licence plate# 328 JAB. It is not normal for Julian to go this long without having contact with family members.
If anyone has any information on the whereabouts or well being of Julian Demers it is requested that they contact the Melfort RCMP or your local Police Department.

The Police Dog Service Training Centre (PDSTC) in Innisfail, Alberta is asking young Canadians to suggest names for 10 German Shepherd puppies recently born at the Centre. Children are encouraged to be original and imaginative in finding names that will serve these puppies well in their careers with Canadas national police force. When thinking of names, it is important to keep in mind that these are working police dogs, not pets.
The 10 children whose names are selected will each receive a laminated 8×10-inch photo of the pup they name, a plush dog named Justice and an RCMP cap.
Contest rules are simple:
Contestants can suggest only one name (one entry per person).
The name may be for a male or a female pup.
The name must start with the letter G.
The name must have no more than nine (9) letters.
The name must be one or two syllables.
Contestants must live in Canada and be 16 years old or younger.
Three ways to enter:
1. Enter online: www.rcmp-grc.gc.ca/depot/pdstc-cdcp/
2. Email the childs name, age, address, telephone number and the suggested name for a puppy to firstname.lastname@example.org.
3. Send a postcard or letter to the following address. Be sure to print the childs name, age, address, telephone number and the suggested name for a puppy.

We love to receive drawings and paintings! If submitting by mail or email, children are invited to get creative with their entries.

The deadline for entries is March 5, 2014. Contest winners and prizes will be announced on April 15, 2014.
Winning names will be chosen by the PDSTC staff. A draw will determine the winning entry in the event of multiple submissions of the same puppy name.
