Police canvas public for input

Colwood’s protective services committee on Wednesday, March 13 will give the public a chance to speak its mind

Most everybody can think of something in their community they would like to see addressed by the police.

Colwood’s protective services committee on Wednesday, March 13 will give the public a chance to speak its mind. The committee will look at what the city would like to see as priorities for the RCMP Community Policing Program for 2013 and seeks input from the public.

Every year the program comes up with a list of priorities based public input along with the municipalities, among others.

“We canvass everybody and we ask everybody to come up with ideas of things that would make a meaningful impact to them,” said RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Kathy Rochlitz. “It’s whatever anybody can come up with that they think would make a significant impact.”

Anything from traffic issues to a particular education program, or any other areas of interest, are welcome ideas. Last year the program focused on thefts from vehicles and developed some campaigns as a result of that mandate.

 

The public is welcome to attend the committee meeting at 5:30 p.m. at Colwood city hall (3300 Wishart Rd.) to take part in the discussion.
