RCMP seek volunteers

Sgt. Rick Dellebuur is now heading up community policing for the Penticton RCMP.

"One big thing is we want to come up with initiatives facing Penticton right now, which would be graffiti," he said.

To get there, community policing needs volunteers for Citizens on Patrol, Lock Out Auto Crime, Speed Watch and the auxiliary police program.

All of the programs are designed to help the police deliver a better service to the community, said Dellebuur.

"We can always use a volunteer for something," he said. "For starters, volunteers are part of the community. They know what some of the needs are, and there is no better partnership than police officers and community members working together to address issues of concern."

Dellebuur is hoping to get Citizens on Patrol to start making patrols by May 24.

To volunteer, contact the Penticton RCMP at (250) 492-4300.
