Light Up and Chili Cook-off

The South Cowichan Community Policing Office took part in the annual Chili Cook-off in Mill Bay again in 2013. The Chili was served between 2:30 p.m. and 4:30 p.m and even though we didn’t win, we had a great time meeting with the community.  Enjoy this short video with the highlights.



Mill Bay Fashion Show

On November 14th, 2012, the Community Policing Office participated in the annual Mill Bay Fashion Show.  Our Speed Watch volunteers Quinton, Marlene and Sandra strutted their stuff sporting their Speed Watch attire.  Part of the proceeds were donated to Hospice of BC.  Way to go to our Community Policing Models … next stop … the runways of Paris!

Over 40 youth were caught!

There were over 40 tickets issued this summer to youth in the South Cowichan area. The tickets did not come with a fine or jail time … they came with a prize. The tickets were issued to kids who were caught “doing things right” like wearing a helmet while riding a bike or being a big help in the community. Positive tickets is a community program where youth are caught doing good things and rewarded with a prize of a gift certificate or a voucher to some fun, free activity.
The ticket holders were also entered into a draw for some grand prizes. On October 6th, Constable Furlong of Shawnigan Lake RCMP along with Island Savings Credit Union were on hand at the Community Policing Office to present their donated grand prizes of two bowling parties for 10. The grand prize winners were … drum roll please … Jennifer Clark and Devon McCormick. Other winners of the day were Liam Tupper, Jack Wilke, and Kabore Dunn who all won various gift baskets and certificates generously donated by local businesses. Congratulations to everyone!
