Citizens On Patrol (COPS)

Bio/History/Backgroundbc-citizens-patrol

We are a dedicated group of volunteers serving the City of Dawson Creek. We are the “Eyes and Ears” for the Police and the communities we serve.

Our Mission Statement is “to improve community safety by training volunteers who partner with Police to accurately observe and report suspicious and or criminal activity.”

Dawson Creek Citizens on Patrol was formed in 1988 with a commitment to assist the Dawson Creek RCMP Detachment members to make our communities safe. Our organization currently dedicates their time to patrol the streets. In the non-patrol hours, we are dedicated to participating in other group events for the betterment of the communities we serve.

Are you interested in being an extra set of “eyes and ears” for your community? GREAT! We need you…

Dawson Creek Citizens on Patrol Program encourages dedicated community volunteers to be of assistance by observing possible criminal activity in designated areas. By being an extra set of ‘eyes and ears’ the Patrol is able to assist in the deterrence of crime in this community. The Patrol is not designed to replace the local police but allows police to direct their focus on other areas of potential crime and criminal activity.
