Nain streets will be a little safer in the near future with the placement of a community constable.
Sarah Leo is the AngajuKak for the Nain Inuit Community Government (NICG).
She says the NICG is working with local RCMP to establish a job description for the new position.
The community constable will act as a liaison between the NICG and RCMP.
She says the community constable will enforce the NICG’s by-laws.
Unlike RCMP members who rotate in and out of the community, the community constable will be permanently stationed in Nain.
Leo says the position has been a success in other communities in Nunatsiavut.
