Enderby is inviting residents to take a bite out of crime.

Recruitment is currently underway for Citizens on Patrol members in the community.

“When our community gets mobilized, we squeeze out opportunities for criminal activity to occur. Citizens on Patrol sends a message to criminals: we are watching you,” said Mayor Greg McCune.

Volunteers work in teams patrolling neighbourhoods in vehicles, observing and reporting any activity that may need a police presence or could help the police in an investigation.

“The Citizens on Patrol program will be a great resource for Enderby. It deters crime and helps the RCMP to identify and investigate criminal activity,” said Sgt. Les Hobenshield, with the RCMP.

Interested volunteers can apply by filling out the application at www.cityofenderby.com/cop.

After training, volunteers are expected to commit to a minimum of one year of service for a minimum of four hours per month, or one to two shifts per month.
