Join Citizens on Patrol

The Chase BC Citizens on Patrol Society is looking for volunteers to help make the community a safer place.

The Chase BC Citizens on Patrol Society is looking for volunteers to help make the community a safer place.

Chase residents are invited to join the team and make a difference simply by going out on patrol with a buddy once every other month.

While helping the community, volunteers strive to be extra eyes and ears for the RCMP.

Volunteers who wish to, can also use Speed Watch to do a radar check on the speed of oncoming traffic on village streets. Monitoring seat belt usage is done at the same time.

You must be at least 19 years old to join Citizens On Patrol and must have no criminal record.

All volunteers who wish to join must also commit to four hours a month and attend a monthly meeting as often as possible.

Patrolling in Chase is an excellent outing for singles, couples or with friends.

Please join the group at any time; members meet the second Tuesday of the month at Chase Creekside Centre,  7 p.m.

During the meeting tea, coffee and doughnuts are provided to members or those thinking about joining.

For more information, call Betty at 250-679-8702, or pick up an application form at the Chase RCMP Detachment.
