Paulette Aamot the coordinator for The Pas and Area Citizens on Patrol Program spoke to Arctic Radio news to give an update on the program. The COPP are doing a 50/50 raffle for a chance to win one thousand dollars and the draw will be on May 11th.
They will also be doing graffiti removal in neighbourhoods this spring and they have two new members that have recently signed up which will bring their membership to 24.
She added that they have been out doing patrols almost every day of the week in the downtown core and around the elementary schools and they hope to do more patrols when the weather gets nicer.
If you are interested in joining COPP call Aamot at 204-620-1369. You must be 18 years or older to join and you are required to go through a criminal record check.
