Community Policing Services seeking volunteers

June 07, 2013 - 12:07 PM

Want to play a part in keeping the community safe? The Penticton Community Policing Services would like to talk to you, as the team is looking for volunteers to assist with public programs for the City and area.

Penticton RCMP Community Policing Services has been active in the community since 1990, and its six paid staff rely heavily on hard-working volunteers to support programs that strengthen the safety and security of the community.

Community Policing Services programs that are in need of more volunteers are Citizens on Patrol, Speed Watch and Lock Out Auto Crime.
Citizens on Patrol is an evening-based program with four-hour shifts for volunteers, who patrol the streets and parks. These individuals serve as an extra set of eyes and ears for the police, and are not directly in contact with the public.

Speed Watch and Lock Out Auto Crime are daytime programs designed to address speeding on local streets and combat theft from vehicles, respectively. Volunteer shifts range between two to four hours.

Persons interested in volunteering must be 19 years of age and be willing to have a criminal records check. Candidates are also expected to have good communication skills, sound judgement and solid understanding of confidentiality.

If you are interested in any or all of the programs please contact 250-492-4300 or email communitypolicing@penticton.ca. The office is located at 185 Lakeshore Dr. and open to the public Monday to Friday, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
