February 2016

February 2016 . . .  Lots of exciting things happening at South Cowichan Community Policing  – we have started up 3 new Block Watches in the Shawnigan and Mill Bay (South Cowichan area) in the past month, and more to come….. stop in if you are interested in learning more about Block Watch (starting one up in your area), Speed Watch (monitoring speeds on our roads) or Friendly Phones (contacting older adults/seniors to ensure their safety),  if you have some extra time on your hands and are interested in becoming a Volunteer stop by our office.  You will notice we have added a new tab to our website for Pet Awareness – great way for sharing information on lost pets or other animals in the community.

We want to say “Thank you“ for helping to keep our communities safer.

Changing Road Conditions . . .

be-safe-drive-smart

 Weather, traffic, road repairs—different conditions bring driving challenges. Be prepared!

For us here in the Valley, driving in foggy weather is the norm.  Visibility can deteriorate in a matter of seconds. **Plan your route & check road conditions (DriveBC.ca) **Watch your speedometer **Drive with headlights & foglights on **Do not switch on high beams **Use your wipers and defrosters as needed **Use right edge of the road or painted road markings as a guide  **Avoid stopping on highway 

*Other types of winter driving    *Checking road conditions
