COPS…Revitalized

Pipestone Flyer

Citizens on Patrol has been put on the side lines for over six years and now is on a comeback. Because citizens care.

Our community is overall a safe and secure place to live, however, every once in a while disruption and vandalism rears its ugly head. Citizens are tired of this. They are willing to help make Millet an even better place to live, grow and prosper.

The purpose of this program is for dedicated community volunteers to be of assistance to the police by patrolling designed areas to observe any possible criminal activity. By being an extra "eyes and ears" the patrol is able to assist in the deterrence of crime in the areas that we as volunteers reside. This program has been developed to increase public awareness of the role of the Police and the important role citizens play in reducing and discouraging criminal activities in our community before it starts. Citizens will learn how to make their homes and businesses less inviting to thieves, and how to be alert to suspicious activities in their neighbourhoods.

The patrol is not designed to replace the regular police but allows the police to be able to direct their focus to other areas of potential crime. The patrol operates under the direction of your local Officer in Charge of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and your local citizens on Patrol Society.

As there has been an interest generated from citizens in Millet, there will be an orientation meeting on Friday, December 05, 2014 at 6:00 pm at the Town Office (5120 – 50 Street). Please call Pat at 780-387-4619 or e-mail garrettpat2@gmail.com for more information or to sign on for this program. The success of this program will only be achieved with strong community participation and involvement.
