The Pas Citizens on patrol group received the outstanding group award at the annual C.O.P.P conference in Winnipeg. The Pas C.O.P.P chairperson Paulette Aamot says the group has been active for the past 25 years, and this year they had a total of 3454 patrol hours , 3951 volunteer hours, and they are the eyes and ears for local law enforcement to keep the community safe. These are the reasons why she felt that the group won the award.
Aamot is hoping that the group will have more of a visible presence in the future so that residents know that they are still active and she hopes that more people will become members as well.
If you are interested in joining The Pas C.O.P.P you can call Aamot at 204-620-1369 or you can attend one of their meetings which take place the first Tuesday of every month at the RCMP Office at 6PM.
