The Cranbrook RCMP is resuming their volunteer programs that were halted during the pandemic, including the citizens on patrol program.
“Our Citizen on Patrol team has reached 15 members, all of whom required security clearances and in-house training,” said Staff Sergeant Barry Graham.
“They are ramping up their planned patrols and have been a great help when called upon for specific assistance to our regular member team.”
He said some of the volunteers have been very helpful in following up with local businesses to provide options to help reduce their vulnerability to property crime.
“We understand that reducing crime is a high priority for our community,” said Mayor Wayne Price.
“This program gives the community a measure to use at the local level to help reduce some of the social issues we see. I am hopeful we see some additional volunteers to help grow this important initiative.”
