SIDNEY — The local branch of Citizens on Patrol (COP) in conjunction with Sidney North Saanich RCMP,  are still seeking volunteers who are interested in joining their program.

Volunteers are interviewed, given police background checks, and trained before they go out on patrol. Volunteers are asked to commit to a minimum of one four-hour shift per month.

If you are a local citizen between the ages of 19 to 80 and are interested in joining or learning more about the Citizens On Patrol program, please contact Bill at 250-656-9293.
