North Shore Community Policing Office Expanding Services

Release date: 
January 9, 2018

Kamloops, BC - In 2018, the North Shore Community Policing Office (NSCPO) will be expanding its services for North Kamloops residents with longer office hours and additional community services. The NSCPO is home to the City’s Crime Prevention Division, which works alongside the Kamloops RCMP and manages a large number of volunteers to run various crime prevention initiatives throughout the community.
In early 2018, the Crime Prevention Division will be working closely with the Kamloops & District Crime Stoppers Society (KDCSS) to support its program for the Kamloops area. The City and the KDCSS will be signing a new service agreement through which the City will be hiring a Community Policing Office Coordinator, who will provide direct support to the Kamloops & District Crime Stoppers program. This position will also provide front line support, which will allow the NSCPO to be open continuously from 8:00 am to 4:30 pm, Monday through Friday, increasing the customer service for North Kamloops residents.
Additionally, the NSCPO will undergo a facelift to the current garage bays to make room for more office space, change rooms, a forensics bay, and a dedicated space for the police dog services unit. This project is scheduled to be completed by spring 2018.
“We are pleased with the plans and changes coming to the NSCPO,” states Supt. Brad Mueller, Officer in Charge of the Kamloops RCMP. “These new services and upgrades will better support our operations and, in turn, help us to better meet the needs of residents on the North Shore.”
“We are very excited with the improvements we will be able to implement at the NSCPO in 2018,” says Kevin Beeton, Police Support Services Supervisor. “This office houses a number of programs, services, and volunteers, all geared towards providing crime prevention initiatives in our community. The expanded office hours and additional support services give us the ability to do more for the residents of Kamloops.”
The new hours of service for the NSCPO are scheduled to begin in spring 2018.
