“The WITS program is a significant part of our 5 School Liaison Officer’s program delivery. WITS is presented on a regular basis to provide value and responsiveness to our schools by giving young people essential tools to counter bullying behavior and in building a safer community. We are very proud of our partnership with WITS – especially significant given the Saanich Police role in the Reena Virk file”, Inspector Brett Fryer, from the Saanich Police Community Liaison Division stated.
