The Community Safety Office is a community operated resource office run by volunteers and overseen by our Community Engagement Division.
The Community Safety Office will create opportunities for like-minded community members to become more involved and engages them as volunteers in community and prevention programming. We truly believe that this will be a community office, run by the community, and for the benefit of the community.
A team of dedicated volunteers will assist the Coordinator of Crime Prevention Programs by sharing information and connecting people with the resources they need.
It brings community-based safety initiatives, and projects to Saanich residents and includes core programs such as Block Watch, Speed Watch, Cell Watch, Lock-Out Auto Crime, Saanich Police “Ace” Mascot Program, Student Volunteers and our Summer Student Program.
The office offers a broad spectrum of crime reduction and prevention programs including information and tips about fraud prevention, elder abuse, victims of crime programs, cyber-crime, cyber-bullying, home security, pedestrian, and bike safety.
Although the initial quest for start-up volunteers has ended, we will be regularly looking for volunteers to join our team. For more information, go to joinspd.ca and click “Apply Now” or email [email protected]
After the grand opening, the Community Safety Office will be open to the public Monday to Friday, from 10 am to 4 pm.
