Year of successes for RCMP
After leaving 2012 behind with fond memories, I look forward to a peaceful 2013. Our successes on Bowen Island have been largely due to community members helping out - block watch groups as our eyes and ears, auxiliary constables Larry Schmidt and Effron Esseiva at those times when our island population increases, the members of the community when we asked them to “Cram the Cruiser” in December to support the food bank, and, of course, the Rotary Club of Bowen Island who ensured that everyone got a ride home through Operation Red Nose during the season.
I look forward to resurrecting the speed watch program with a new set of volunteers, and continuing our partnership with the local schools, fire department and Bowen Island Municipal Council. It’s been a year of successes, and we, at the Bowen Island RCMP Detachment, look forward to continuing to work with and assist the residents of Bowen Island in 2013.
