Quiet week for Kimberley RCMP

Police look forward to engaging with students this school year

Those of you involved in the school system are likely aware that local officers often attend the school to liaise with the students.  The detachment is firmly committed to building a positive relationship with the younger people.  Each school has a liaison officer assigned to assist with police/school activities and act as a contact person. But members are encouraged to visit any school to chat informally with the students. In the last school year, the Kimberley officers attended the schools 130 times, that’s 13 visits per month.

Again this year DARE will be taught to the Grade 5 students in McKim.

Golf Tournament

The Kimberley RCMP / Speedwatch Charity Golf Tournament was a huge success. It was a sold out show with well over 100 persons attending.  Money raised from this popular event goes towards the BC Ambulance Memorial Scholarship fund and minor sports in the community.  More on this later.  Thanks to all the generous sponsors and volunteers.
