PENTICTON - The Penticton RCMP is borrowing a crowdfunding principle for its first annual Crowd Forum on Public Safety.

Const. James Grandy said in a press release the crowdfunding principle of a lot of small things leading to big results is the motivation behind a series of meetings on public safety the detachment is planning prior to its annual public safety forum in March.

Police hope the meetings will provide the public with an opportunity to set priorities related to crime prevention and personal safety.

Prior to the March main event, police will hold mini-forums at local businesses and organizations throughout the South Okanagan. Local organizations are encouraged to contact the detachment for an officer to attend their enterprise to present and field questions on topics of concern.

The most common concerns will be compiled and presented in further depth at the main forum in March.

Business and other organizations throughout the South Okanagan wishing to have an officer present at their location should email their request to Individual questions or concerns can also be emailed.

“In the coming weeks, officers will be increasing their presence in the downtown core, and as part of this initiative, will be canvassing businesses interested in having their own mini-forums,” Const. James Grandy said in the release.
