Provincial COP Groups
At present Saskatchewan does not have a Provincial Citizens on Patrol Association. Hopefully this will change in the near future.
As of May 2016, there are 71 active Citizens On Patrol groups in Alberta. This is an increase of 16 new C.O.P. groups in the past year. As well, there are 7 more communities who have expressed an interest in organizing a C.O.P. program. Since January 2016, over 100 people have joined ACOPA.
Kingston County West COP participated at the Kingston RCMP Detachment today as they were celebrating Police Week. Kelli Gaudet, the RCMP member who is in community policing said we were the first group to volunteer to assist her with this project. We did a booth outside with COP and COP Off Roa
The Manitoba Citizens on Patrol Program (COPP) began its operations in 1991, forming partnerships between local law enforcements, Manitoba Justice and citizen groups desiring to make their communities a safer place.
With no movement from the RCMP and BC Crime Prevention Association as to assistance in setting up a provincial association in BC, there is little activity to report.
