Vernon-North Okanagan RCMP are letting the public know about a one-hour upgrade of the detachment’s phone system.

The upgrade will take place Wednesday from 7 a.m. to 8 a.m., which is before the office officially opens at 8:30 a.m. That means no calls to the detachment’s 250-545-7171 number will be answered.

“We hope the upgrade will be completed on time so there is no impact on the public,” said RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk.

Anybody needing to call police during this time can do so through the 9-1-1 system.
