If you happen to be in the vicinity of the Community Policing Office, you must drop by and check out our stand-up cut-out board which is predominately on display just outside our door during office hours.
The cut-out board features an RCMP constable handsomely attired in the formal and ceremonial uniform of the Red Serge. By his side is his trouble making friend Raccoon. With his reputation of trash can dumping in South Cowichan, it looks like Raccoon has been busted.
Come by, bring your camera, put your face into the appropriate cut-outs and become part of the picture. Friends and family would love to have a copy!!
Here are some pictures of people having fun!
The Positive Tickets program in South Cowichan has now launched. For the third year in now, Shawnigan Lake RCMP officers are “catching kids doing good things”. When the kids are caught doing things like wearing a helmet while cycling or helping in the community, they are rewarded with a “ticket” which can be redeemed at the Community Policing Office for a gift donated by a local business. Their name is also entered into a Grand Prize draw which will be held in September. This program is a great way to build strong relationships between our youth and the RCMP. Visit our Positive Tickets webpage for more information.

In February 2014 we will be holding our annual Block Watch Captains meeting. Stay tuned for dates and location
In February 2013 we had over 40 in attendance at Brentwood College for a special presentation by Sybille Sanderson of CVRD Public Safety on Emergency Preparedness.
For our beloved Shirley Walker, it was her final evening as the Block Watch Coordinator for South Cowichan. She will still be involved with SCCPAS but she is looking forward to spending some more time on the golf course. Block Watch and the fan-outs will now be managed from the Community Policing Office by Julie Rosenthal. Thank you so much Shirley for over 15 years of dedication to our community!
Come into the office today to find out how easy it is to start a Block Watch in your neighbourhood.
Below are a few pictures from the evening.
