NANAIMO RCMP COMMUNITY POLICING VOLUNTEER PROGRAM – Community Policing Volunteers

Volunteers are needed for the following programs:

Speed Watch

Speed Watch is an ICBC sponsored educational program aimed at reducing incidents of speeding.  Operated by dedicated volunteers who will be trained to use radar, electronic speed boards and data collection.

Crime Watch

Volunteers patrol designated “hots spots” or requested areas and report all suspicious, criminal and nuisance behavior.

529 Garage

This program helps to prevent bike theft by registering bikes on the local database, providing shields as a deterrent and identifying stolen bikes.  Volunteers conduct registrations at various spots in the community.

Campaigns

This program supports a variety of educational campaigns by engaging the community on topics like distracted driving, seat belt awareness, impaired driving pedestrian safety and bike safety.

Community Safety Initiatives

This program works in high schools by delivering sessions that engage youth on topics around safety, mental health and substance use.

For all the above volunteer opportunities, a police information check, a clean driving record, the ability to learn and adhere to strict safety standards, to write and communicate effectively, to commit to 1 to 2 4-hour shifts a month, and the ability to maintain ethical and professional conduct is required.

An RCMP Security Check is required and is paid for by the agency.
