Enderby targets improved safety

Council has met with Cpl. Todd Bowden, the new officer in charge of the Enderby detachment.

Law enforcement and city officials are vowing to work together to keep Enderby safe.

Council has met with Cpl. Todd Bowden, the new officer in charge of the Enderby detachment.

“We are building on strengthening our relationship with the RCMP,” said Coun. Roxanne Davyduke.

Bowden brought the city up to speed on his detachment’s priorities in terms of being proactive in the community.

“Council was impressed with how the initiatives are going,” said Mayor Greg McCune.

That view is also held by Davyduke.

“Our concerns are being addressed,” she said.

However, McCune admits that the police, the city and all residents must remain vigilant when it comes to crime and new programs like community watch are important.

“Things are going in the right direction but we will continue to work closely with the RCMP,” he said.

The community watch program is being promoted among businesses downtown and people who regularly use the River Walk. The goal is to have residents report criminal activity or suspicious behaviour.

Phone numbers for the RCMP and Crime Stoppers will be available on signs and door and window stickers.
