Operation: Recess
The Royal Newfoundland Constabulary (RNC), with help from the Town of Paradise, and other municipalities in the region, have launched Operation: Recess. This Operation is aimed at reducing highway traffic act violations in and around school zones by enforcing a zero-tolerance policy. Working with the Town's Municipal Enforcement Officers, the RNC will have increased patrols in the four school zones in the Town: Paradise Elementary, Holy Family Elementary, Octagon Pond Elementary and Elizabeth Park Elementary. The public can expect that police will use covert enforcement measures as well as overt measures such as LiDAR and RADAR for speed enforcement in Town school areas.
