43 years of service

The BNPP Regional Police, serving the municipalities of Beresford, Nigadoo, Petit-Rocher and Pointe-Verte in northern New Brunswick since 1981, has grown over the last 43 years. Police work is no different than any other field in regards to keeping up with technology to meet the needs of the people you serve and the services you provide to the community.

As crimes become more and more sophisticated, so too are the methods for solving them. This site is just one way we hope to serve the population better by allowing them to help us resolve crimes surrounding the community while providing knowledge of the law.

We hope to inform the public on points of interest and interacting with the population by taking their information anonymously through the Internet. Our goal is also to increase the chances of bringing suspects to justice as well as educating the citizens on the various laws and regulations throughout our jurisdiction.

This site is your site, so please use it to your advantage and do your part to make your environment safe and crime free.

Original crest

This crest was worn on officer's shirt and patrol jackets from 1981 to 2005.  During that time, we wore light blue shirts with dark blue  on the pockets and shoulders.  

In May of 1996, feeling the need for a change in our uniforms, we made the change to a dark blue shirt which appeared more modern.  The BNPP has always worn a blue stripe on the pant legs opposed to most municipalities that wear red.

Present crest

The present crest, worn for the first time in October 2005, was designed and created to capture some of the elements of the area. The Canadian flag, representing our great country; the water, representing the Bay of Chaleur; the fishing boat, representing one of our greatest resources; and the Acadian flag painted on the dock, representing the predominant Acadian culture.

Past patrol cars

Our first patrol cars were the traditional blue in color. This color was used from 1981 to 1998. From 1998 to 2010, the switch was made to white patrol cars.

The Crown Victoria was the car of choice.  It's large interior made it easier for officers to work longer hours behind the wheel. 

Present patrol cars

In 2010, our patrol car were all black making a change from the period color white.  

In 2012, white doors were added and because car manufacturers were no longer making larger sedans, the Ford Taurus, in all-wheel-drive, was chosen as our patrol fleet.

In March of 2019, both the Taurus and Police Interceptor Sedan were discontinued. The Police Interceptor Sedan was replaced by the second-generation, 2020 Ford Explorer-based Ford Police Interceptor Utility.
