This spring North Cowichan/Duncan Community Policing has undergone some exciting changes! The programs and volunteers are now managed by Sarah Davidge with Cowichan Community Policing & Engagement Society and she has been working hard, hiring new coordinators (we will introduce them to you soon!) for North Cowichan (Chemainus, Crofton and Maple Bay), Duncan and Cowichan Bay. Sarah is also getting valuable and impactful programs up and running again, such as: Speed Watch , Crime Watch and Block Watch, just to list a few. Cowichan Community Policing & Engagement Society has amazing opportunities for you to volunteer for these programs and many more. If you are community minded, wish to contribute to positive meaningful community changes and experience the comradery experienced by being part of this volunteer team, perhaps Cowichan Community Policing & Engagement Society is the right place for you.
I love this community, because people step up and volunteer to make a difference.
All training related to the Speed Watch, Crime Watch and Block Watch programs are provided and paid for by Cowichan Community Policing & Engagement Society. To volunteer you will need a criminal record check, a clean driving abstract and be a minimum of 19 years old. Cowichan Community Policing & Engagement Society requests a commitment of a minimum of 2 hours, twice a month (you pick the hours you volunteer!), plus 1 hour for the monthly meetings. We are looking for people from all walks of life; professionals in the community(s), business people, university students, retired community members and yes….retired police officers.
Please check out the South Cowichan Community Policing website for more information southcowichancommunitypolicing.ca/and reach out to Sarah if you feel this might be a good fit for you.
The North Cowichan Community Policing website is coming soon!
Inspector Chris Bear said,
This is an exciting time for community policing in the Cowichan Valley, with Covid-19 restrictions hopefully lifting soon, many programs our detachment used to rely on are now getting up and running again. We have a new manager and new coordinators who are eager to get volunteers trained and out in our communities.
