After another reported case of a homegrown radicalized terrorist responsible for the tragic incident in Manchester, Regina Police along with other jurisdictions, are keeping a close eye on potential troubles at in this country.
Perhaps the most infamous Canadian duo, Calgary’s Salman Ashrafi, and Damian Clairmont, were both killed in battle after leaving for Syria and Iraq in 2014, but the thought of homegrown terrorism in Saskatchewan isn’t one ignored by the Regina Police Service — despite the fact they’ve seen no evidence of any occurrences of potential radicalization in this province.
Deputy Police Chief Dean Rae said the RCMP are in contact with RPS if any red flags are raised, but thus far, it’s been quiet.
“We don’t necessarily know what’s going on all the time in the province because that’s part of the responsibility of the RCMP, but they do notify us if we do have anything of concern to us as Regina Police Service,” he said.
“We haven’t had much information from the RCMP, so quite frankly we don’t have much concern unless we get notified by the RCMP, and we haven’t had that,” he added.
Rae added the police service is not oblivious to the fact it could happen here, but he assures the public that plans and procedures are in place if most any incident took place.
