Citizens on Patrol
Chestermere R.C.M.P. are currently looking for interested volunteers in the Town to start a Citizens on Patrol Program.
The Citizens on Patrol or C.O.P. Program is a community-based, volunteer-driven group of citizens within the town, working in partnership with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. Members of C.O.P. assist the R.C.M.P. in the fight against crime within the community.
The role of a C.O.P. member is to assist the police in patrolling within the same detachment area and making observations and taking note of activities in the area. If questionable conduct is noticed then the C.O.P. member contacts the R.C.M.P. member to investigate the suspicious circumstances.
Interested volunteers must be at least 18 years of age, be of good character, agree to abide by the rules, requirements, Code of Ethics, or any other conditions set out by the local police service and/or the local C.O.P. Society. Volunteers must also pass the security screening required by the local R.C.M.P.. Once these criteria are met, the volunteer will receive training before being issued C.O.P. identification.
Chestermere is a growing community and requires volunteers to ensure that it remains a safe place to live.
If you are interested in becoming part of this program, please contact Chestermere R.C.M.P at 403-204-8777 or vist the office located at 156 East Chestermere Drive to pick up an application form.
