about

From 1858 until 1950, the BC Provincial Police maintained law and order in British Columbia, patrolling this vast and rugged area by horseback, boat, snowshoes and dog team until the arrival of the train, automobile and airplane. These classic cases from the files of North America's first territorial constabulary bring to life the lawmen who upheld the peace and the criminals who disrupted it. From the tale of a Texas gambler who though he had committed the perfect murder to the mystery of a Quesnel family who disappeared under suspicious circumstances, these dramatic stories provide a vivid window into frontier society and the challenges faced by members of this exceptional police force.
