RCMP trying to get COP moving againPosted: June 11, 2012
The Columbia Valley RCMP Detachment wants to get the Invermere Citizens on Patrol (COP) operational again.
Detachment NCO S/Sgt. Marko Shehovac (pictured above) stated Monday, June 11, “The detachment is wishing to get this program back on its feet. At present time we only have three active citizens in Invermere and we need more people involved.”
Shehovac said the COP is a useful tool for the detachment, which like many other detachments, often suffers from manpower shortages. It also has to contend with surges in population in the Columbia Valley during weekends and the busy summer season. The full-time population for the valley is about 10,000 but it can explode to 30,000 when the summer tourism season is in full swing.
COP members help spread out coverage of the area for the RCMP
“The volunteers are our eyes and ears in the community,” Shehovac said, adding, “Training is done before anyone hits the street to go over the rules and expectations.”
He said he is hoping to attract eight people, enough to hold an information session.
“Those interested please give me a call. We will do it (info sessions) at the sub office, Tim Horton’s,” he said
Call the RCMP office at 342-9292 if you are interested in attending an information session or volunteering for COP.
