The Kelowna RCMP are looking for volunteers to join their Auxiliary Constable Program.
This program will allow the Kelowna detachment to strengthen community and police partnerships by providing volunteers with the opportunity to perform authorized activities in support of strategies to address the cause of, or reduce the fear of, crime and disorder.
Auxiliary Constables must contribute 160 hours of volunteer time per year, participate in community policing programs and ride on patrol with police officers in a support role.
Training consists of 150 hours of classroom, practical and police defensive techniques. The course will run over a five-month period on consecutive Saturdays, training will be significant and attendance is mandatory.
Requirements include being a Canadian citizen over the age of 19 and you must reside in the Central Okanagan. Candidates must have a minimum high school education; valid drivers license and pass a variety of tests.
Anyone interested can contact Bill Finney, Kelowna RCMP Auxiliary Policing Coordinator, at 250-470-6343 or pick up an application form at the Kelowna RCMP Detachment.
