Prince Albert police say there has been a recent spike in the number of break and enters in the city.

Police are reminding residents to ensure they take precautions when leaving their homes.

Sgt. Brandon Mudry also says anyone who notices suspicious behaviour in their neighbourhood should contact police immediately.

“Make sure your doors are locked, make sure your car doors are locked at night, utilize yard lights, keep gates locked…,” he says.

Mudry adds he doesn’t believe the recent spate of crime has been limited to any one particular area of the city.

“Right now we’re seeing a small spike in break and enters and willful damages. I don’t know if it’s any particular area per se but we have noticed a spike.”

Police suggest having someone watch your home if you are going to be away for an extended period of time and to leave a yard light on.

They also recommend installing quality locks and a security system.

The public is also encouraged to call police if they see any suspicious activity.

First Nations Education Council Blasts Fraser Report PDF Print E-mail

A recent study by the Fraser Institute is being called into question by the First Nations Education Council.

The council says the recent study does not take into account key factors when determining school funding.

The study says First Nations schools are as well funded as provincial schools and education reform must come before increased funding.

However, the education council says the report gives no consideration of socio-economic conditions, special needs, minority language issues, isolation and school size - all of which are conditions First Nations students face on a regular basis.

The council says it is not opposed to educational reform but it must be done under First Nations control.
