KAMLOOPS- The North Shore Community Policing Office will be expanding its services in 2018.

The office will be open longer hours and offer more community services, according to a press release from the City of Kamloops on Jan. 9.

The North Shore office is home to the City’s crime prevention division, which works with Kamloops RCMP, and in early 2018, this division will begin to work closely with the Kamloops and District Crime Stoppers Society.

The City of Kamloops will also be hiring a Community Policing Office Coordinator, who will help provide support to the Kamloops and District Crime Stoppers program.

“These new services and upgrades will better support our operations and, in turn, help us to better meet the needs of residents on the North Shore”, Supt. Brad Mueller, Officer in Charge of the Kamloops RCMP said in the press release.

The office will also undergo major renovations to add more office space, forensics bay, and a space for the police dog services unit. This project is scheduled to be complete by Spring 2018.

“This office houses a number of programs, services, and volunteers, all geared towards providing crime prevention initiatives in our community. The expanded office hours and additional support services give us the ability to do more for the residents of Kamloops,” said Kevin Beeton, police support services supervisor, in the press release.
