Well, it’s mid-way through the Midway…and other exciting attractions at QCX 2022. The Regina Police Service is happy to report that there have been relatively few incidents requiring police attention, so far.
The Regina Police Service has a presence at QCX 2022, working in conjunction with REAL District Security. On August 3rd and 4th – the first two days of QCX – RPS members have dealt with three assaults, a couple of consensual fights (no injuries), and a handful of intoxicated persons and people ejected from the ground for disorderly behavior. There have been about a dozen children separated from family members or caregivers; all “missing” kids were found and reunited with families. There have also been a few cases in which people tried to bring in prohibited items. While some investigations are still ongoing, there have been no criminal charges laid so far.
It is important to remember that the REAL District (the location of the Queen City Ex) is City of Regina property, and is operated by the Regina Exhibition Association Limited (REAL). As operator of the entire event complex, REAL sets the rules about what visitors can bring onto the grounds and how they should behave. Disorderly conduct, including intoxication, can get you ejected from the grounds. All criminal matters will be dealt with by the Regina Police Service, working in conjunction with REAL District Security. If you want more information about items/bags that are permitted in the REAL District, visit Know Before You Go (realdistrict.ca).
The Regina Police Service thanks visitors and residents for their cooperation. We also thank the REAL District Security and other partners in community safety. The weekend’s warm weather and sunshine is sure to bring even more visitors to QCX 2022; we’ll be there, with our partners, to help. We hope your QC X-perience is memorable in all the right ways.
