Mountie gets his man…and gets him home

Cranbrook RCMP officer attends call, goes above and beyond the call of duty.

On February 26, 2016, Cranbrook RCMP received several calls of an elderly male who was loitering near the 711 Store.

Cst. Robert Notari spent considerable time looking for the male before he finally found him. The man had missed his medical transport back to Fernie and had no money for a hotel room.  Cst Notari approached the Salvation Army and found him a bed for the night.

For those of us old enough to remember the old radio show, “The Rest of the Story”, here’s how this one ends…

Cst Notari, who was in between nightshift, went back to the Salvation Army in his personal vehicle few hours after the end of his shift picked up the gentleman and drove him back to his home in Fernie ensuring he got home safely.

It’s these types of incidents that show the Cranbrook RCMP’s dedication to our community as a whole whether they are on shift or not.

And that is the rest of the story…
