The Kelowna RCMP has come up with its own 10 per cent solution.
The RCMP has set a target of reducing crime in Kelowna by 10 per cent over the next four years (2012 to 2015).
It's part of a four point plan included within the detachments crime reduction strategy through 2015.
Other strategies include:
- Increasing patrol availability from 6.7%to 25% by 2015
- Reducing calls for service by 5% in 2014 and again in 2015 in order to increase patrol activity
- Increase internal and external communication related to crime reduction
The strategy addresses most of the recommendations contained within the Prosser Report which was delivered to City Council back in January.
It was as a result of that report that council agreed to hire 11 news RCMP and one civilian member in 2012 along with a further 10 members (nine RCMP and one civilian) over the next three years.
In a lengthy report for council break down specific duties that will be handled by the new officers and how they intend to affect the strategy.
City Council will review the report Monday.
