1925 marked the last year that a board of police commissioners was constituted for the City of Prince George. Since the City was incorporated in 1915, the mayor was held responsibility for managing and providing police services. To assist the mayor, a board of police commissioners was appointed each year. As of June 15, 1925, the B.C. Provincial Police assumed full responsibility for policing Prince George. By 1926 the former system had been abandoned.

David Edwards McKim, son of Mr. and Mrs. Walter McKim. of Prince George won the "Better Babies Contest" which was held annually as part of the provincial exhibition at the New Westminster Fair Grounds. The contest attracted more than 300 entrants.
