Odd question....

I know who that vehicle belongs to and he and his family reside in Brandon.  
 
Also, what does Rivers have to do with it? You said "RM of Cornwallis" police vehicle.  
 
If you look around you (or check the map of Manitoba RM's) you'll find a pleasant surprise.  
 
Brandon is smack dab in the MIDDLE of the RM of Cornwallis.  
 
Hope that sheds light on it.  
 
PS: If you speed on Veteran's Way (among other nearby small highways) you'll get to see that vehicle again lol. Bet it'll be in the mirror.

It was sitting along hwy 250 right in the town of rivers and he was checking speeds. Maybe rivers and cornwallis police are working together now?

Definitely weird

Definitely weird that a R.M of Cornwallis police vehicle would be in Rivers or any where near Rivers considering the R.M of Cornwallis is no where near Rivers. The Town of Rivers is located in the R.M of Daly, not Cornwallis and the R.M of Cornwallis runs south of the Trans-Canada Highway, not north. They are definitely out of their jurisdiction.

Cornwallis police

They do cooperative policing to help each other when extra staff is needed. I have also seen Brandon Police helping with check stops.

interesting

After talking to a couple of business owners in Rivers they are not happy and said that the cornwallis police officer will give you a ticket if you even look at him. Its making people take their business to brandon.

Clarification

1. To `The Young Man'. Unless Rivers is no longer in the province of Manitoba, the RM of Cornwallis police officer IS within his jurisdiction, as his jurisdiction is the entire province, like any police officer appointed under the Police Act. Stop watching reruns of the Dukes of Hazzard. There is no imaginary `county line' over which the sheriff cannot pass. Any police officer appointed in Manitoba has police powers anywhere in Manitoba.  
 
2. To `Grease Monkey'. There is no such charge as `even looking at a police officer'. I therefore do not understand what these people were charged with and am curious to know the facts, not mere wild-eyed, mouth-frothing speculation. I SUSPECT (but do not know, because I was not there) that the offenders were likely charged with speeding, no seatbelt, cellphone use while driving, etc. If I am wrong, and these people were charged with `even looking at a police officer' I urge you to encourage them to set a court date at which the police officer in question will be called to task by the magistrate for laying a charge which does not exist.  
 
3. The RM police officer was in Rivers participating in an MPI-sponsored RoadWatch traffic enforcement and education campaign. Traffic safety is a huge issue in Manitoba, and various police services in the province receive funding to supplement their budgets in order to pay for extra manpower from other agencies to perform enhanced enforcement duties. Rivers Police members have worked in the past in Brandon, on Dakota Ojibway lands, and in Cornwallis, among other places, alongside members of those police services under the same MPI-funded arrangements.

kudos for

Kudos for that officer for giving tickets. Rivers has tons of people that try to skirt the laws. I love it when mpi does a road watch and i see trailer after trailer of farm trailers pulled over because they refuse to do the basic of maintence. I would love to be beside a farm beater when then tire goes or it couldn't stop so the farmer could save a few bucks and neglect his equipment

hmmmm

Dont class all farmers together saying we don't make sure our trucks and trailers are up to safety standards. There are likely just as many unsafe passenger vehicles on the roads.

Yes I know the officer is within his jurisdiction to police anywhere in Manitoba as really any police officer is. You are 100% correct. But what I meant by saying "jurisdiction" was, if the R.M of Cornwallis officer is in the Town of Rivers he his technically out of the area he is suppose to police, because the R.M of Cornwallis in south of the Trans-Canada Highway and no where near Rivers. I should of used different wording to make it more clear what I meant and personally I have no problem with him being in the town, defiantly if he his participating in a MPI-sponsored Road Watch program. Its actually nice to see different police agencies working together.  
 
 
And on a side note I have never watched "Dukes of Hazzard" in my life, not even the movies.

Where do you get your info that farm trailers are neglected. Feel free to come over and do a safety inspection if you want, or just read the sheet that every farmer has for his trailer when they get them safetied every year.
