Ashcroft RCMP are bringing the provincial ‘Safe Space’ program to the Ashcroft and Cache Creek communities.
The ‘Safe Space’ program has been implemented in many communities across BC in consultation with the local Pride societies and is designed to indicate to anyone who requires help which locations are safe and welcoming. It also indicates those spaces that will support any person should they need assistance until police arrive.
So far, the villages of Ashcroft and Cache Creek, and other community spaces have displayed the Safe Space emblem, said Constable Richard Wright, Ashcroft RCMP.
It is wonderful to see the community standing up and supporting safety and diversity.
Any business or community space that wishes to display the ‘Safe Space’ emblem can either collect one from the Ashcroft RCMP Detachment or call the detachment at 250-453-2216.
