Sometimes education is all you need in a night. And that seemed to be the majority of the calls for the Estevan Police Service last night as they helped out a number of residents. 

"Police received a report of a male attending the office," explained Sgt Tyler McMillan. "He informed us he was being evicted from his residence. He's on conditions to reside at that residence so he was concerned he would be in breach. Even though the residence part is a civil issue, suggestions were made to him to visit his probation officer so he would not be in breach."

Police also attended at last night's Bruins game and reported no incidents. 

"Lots of kids with teddy bears to toss on the ice. That was wonderful to see the donating of the teddy bears to the Bruins."

EPS also conducted a few stops on the lookout for impaired drivers. 

"None were located but we did speak to one intoxicated male and encouraged him to find a safe ride home. He did have two people nearby who were asked to look out for him and make sure he didn't drive."

They also received a call from an intoxicated female who was lost. 

"She had been on the phone with a family member trying to describe her location. The family member had no idea where she was and encouraged her to call the police which she did. And thank goodness she did. We were able to locate her. Her place of residence was one block where she was having a drink but we found her ten blocks away in the opposite direction."

McMillan noted that it was a good thing that it wasn't much colder last night or the story might not have had such a happy ending.
