Crime Prevention - What We Do
Community Policing and Crime Prevention programs within the Regional District of Central Okanagan are managed by the Crime Prevention Coordinator.
The Coordinator takes a leadership role in the organization and delivery of a wide variety of programs that range from public education to direct prevention activities. Presentations by staff and volunteers are available to groups and businesses to help prevent crime before it happens.
Community participation is a key component in the war against crime.
Over 250 volunteers are actively involved in the Community Policing and Crime Prevention Programs. Under the direction of the Crime Prevention Coordinator these volunteers assist the RCMP and other key partners, including ICBC, in making the community a safer place to live.
The Menu buttons offer a more detailed description of each program and service available from Community Policing and Senior Safety and Scams to, "How you can become a Volunteer."
There are also a variety of Crime Prevention organizations that you may wish to link to, such as Central Okanagan Crime Stoppers, Peachland Community Policing, West Kelowna Community Policing, the British Columbia Crime Prevention Association, the British Columbia Citizens Patrol Network, the British Columbia Youth Police Network , PhoneBusters, the RCMP website, the National Crime Prevention Centre, and Heads Up BC.
