Crime Prevention Unit Volunteer
Take a positive step towards a better New Westminster by volunteering for one of the many programs that the Crime Prevention Unit has to offer. Volunteers’ involvement is not only essential to the success of the community, but also rewarding for those who participate. Volunteers gain a real satisfaction knowing that they play a key role in making their neighbourhood a safer and more enjoyable place for everyone.
We recruit new volunteers approximately twice a year (spring/fall). All volunteers begin in our Citizens’ Crime Watch Patrol Program (CCWP). This program requires a commitment level of 6 hours per month and operates weekends, special events and on-call. For more information on the CCWP program or our other volunteer programs, see our Crime Prevention Unit brochure.
We are not currently recruiting. If you would like your named added to our waitlist for our next recruitment please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are interested in our Reserve Constable Program, we recruit from our current volunteer team before opening it to applicants from outside.
Thank you for your interest in NWPD.
