RCMP National Volunteer Week April 18-24

Richmond RCMP is extending a virtual 'thank you' to its volunteers during this year's National Volunteer Week, April 18 to 24.

While the Covid-19 pandemic has curtailed most volunteer activity this past year, Richmond RCMP is recognizing the important contributions of its volunteers in an online video.

The theme of this year's National Volunteer Week is 'The value of one, and the power of many.' It reflects on the awe-inspiring acts of kindness by volunteers, and the magic that happens when we all work together towards a common purpose.

Over the years, Richmond RCMP's volunteers have made significant contributions to the community in a variety of forms. The Auxiliary program, Block Watch, Victim Services and Community Policing Office volunteers are all part of a robust team of energetic volunteers who work alongside Richmond RCMP to help keep our community safe.

Officer-In-Charge of Richmond RCMP, Chief Superintendent Will Ng expressed his appreciation to each of the volunteers saying, "I'm sure being away from the detachment this past year has not been easy for you, and we have missed you all very much. I look forward to seeing and working with you all again very soon, once the pandemic subsides and our volunteer activities can be resumed."

Check out the video, and join the Richmond RCMP in saying 'thank you' to our many volunteers.
