Kelowna's Const. 'Warren Ning' is now Const. Missing

KELOWNA - Just days after its launch, an RCMP cut-out of a police officer has been stolen.

Dubbed Const. Warren Ning, the life-sized model of a police officer holding a radar gun was announced last week (Jan. 14) then went missing from in front of A.S. Matheson Elementary School on Gordon Drive on Thursday.

“Simply put, it is truly disappointing,” states Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey of the Kelowna RCMP in a news release. “This initiative was created with the safety of our youth in mind. Whoever is responsible for the theft has put students at risk.”

The idea of the cut-out was to get drivers to slow down in school zones.

It appears to have disappeared some time after 3:30 p.m., when school was no longer in session.

Police are asking anyone with information to contact the Kelowna RCMP at 250-762-3300. Or remain anonymous by calling Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or by leaving a tip online at

“We encourage anyone who may be in possession of the cut-out, to do the right thing and call police directly, simply return the item to the school it was removed from or drop it off at any Kelowna RCMP Detachment or Community Policing Office,” states the news release.
