Citizens in Patrol active in Ponoka

The association works closely with Ponoka RCMP

Submitted

To date Ponoka’s Citizens on Patrol (COP) has 16 members, and one RCMP liaison.

Since January 2017 to the end of October our volunteers have put in over 400 hours and over 1,900 kms.

Under the direction and guidance from our provincial Alberta Citizens on Patrol Association (ACOPA) and the Ponoka RCMP, we are not vigilantes, we are an extra set of eyes and ears while we patrol night or day in residential, industrial and business areas within town limits.

We report and document any suspicious activity to our RCMP.

If you can volunteer three to four hours a month, pass a criminal record check/volunteer ability check, you can make a difference in helping out our community.

For those interested in helping out by other means, we graciously accept any donations to help offset operational costs.

Upon receiving a donation you will receive a COP window placard in thanks.

COP also would like to acknowledge and send a huge thank you to Ponoka FCSS for its support with a financial grant of $3,000.

The money will help alleviate COP’s operational/stationary costs, insurance, registration, training and conference expenses, gas vouchers, promotional advertising, equipment such as first aid supplies, etc.

For more info please contact Kelly 403-704-3194.
