As Commanding Officer of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police on Prince Edward Island, it gives me great pleasure to present to you the 2018-2019 Annual Report.

2018-2019 Dating Year in Review
As the Federal Policing Criminal Operations Officer for Prince Edward Island, it is my responsibility to ensure our federal resources are working on the RCMP's federal mandate and priorities. In collaboration with our provincial, national and international partners, we gather intelligence and conduct investigations to target new trends of criminality at the highest threat to Canadians. Federal policing has no provincial boundaries, therefore, we tend to focus on threats which impact PEI and Canada. During the 2018-2019 fiscal year, federal operations were aligned in the areas of Serious and Organized Crime, National Security, Border Integrity, Protective Policing and Transnational investigations.
The safety of Island highways and motorists has always been a high priority of the RCMP in Kings District and the efforts made to combat impaired driving, distracted driving and poor driving habits are always ongoing. In the past year the number of checkpoints conducted in this District was increased from 92 in 2017-2018 to 198 in 2018-2019. The number of interactions that the police are able to have with motorists enable us to help get our message of sober and responsible driving out to the public as well as ensure we have a visible presence on Island roads. We have made an effort to encourage the public to contact the police to report on possible impaired or dangerous drivers which enable us to be more effective at combatting these incidents. The use of local media has been invaluable in getting this message out and has resulted in an increase of reporting from the public. The number of drivers that were checked by police for possible impaired driving was 166 in 2018-2019 and this resulted in 74 individuals charged with impaired driving offences.
In 2018-2019 the Major Crime Unit responded to a variety of criminal code investigations ranging from frauds to sexual assaults to sudden deaths. The Major Crime Unit spent a great deal of focus this year assisting PEI's three districts with sexual assault investigations. The RCMP not only recognizes the serious toll that these crimes have on the individuals affected, but also the toll on society as a whole. The work done by the MCU members on these files helped to ensure that these investigations were completed to the highest standard possible.
The Major Crime Unit also plays a role in helping to educate the citizens of Prince Edward Island through presentations and community engagement. In the 2018-2019 fiscal year a number of presentations on topics surrounding internet safety and frauds and scams were made to a number of different community groups, including seniors, Indigenous groups and youth.
Also during 2018-2019, IT Operations worked on several upgrades to assist L Division employees in their duties. IT operations assisted a national working group on preparations for the testing and deployment of Microsoft Windows 10 as well as upgraded many of the Division's employees to Android smartphones. Both of these upgrades will be integral in the RCMP's vision of a 'connected' employee in the years to come.

As required by the campus guidelines, colleges submitted their AEP policies to the Senate's Faculty Affairs Committee (FAC) for review and approval during the 2015-2016 academic year. Departments in departmentalized colleges, as well as research institutes and centers, are also required to develop unit-level AEP policies and have them reviewed and approved through the college's dean's office. Faculty should contact their unit heads to learn about unit-level policies.
Maternal Mortality Review Committees (MMRCs) are multidisciplinary committees that convene at the state or local level to comprehensively review deaths during or within a year of pregnancy (pregnancy-associated deaths). MMRCs have access to clinical and non-clinical information (e.g., vital records, medical records, social service records) to more fully understand the circumstances surrounding each death, determine whether the death was pregnancy-related, and develop recommendations for action to prevent similar deaths in the future.
