Victoria, BC – The contributions of our VicPD Volunteers and Reserve Constables are vital to our organizational success. Without them, key crime prevention programs like Lock Out Auto Crime, Crime Watch, Speed Watch, and the VicPD Bike Registry would not be as successful as they are. The hours they give to these key crime prevention programs are part of our fifteen measures on our Community Dashboard, which, along with our online quarterly reports, publications, and other information are part of Open VicPD, and are how we are telling the story of working towards our strategic vision of “A Safer Community Together.” This is the fifth and final measure that we are utilizing under our goals to Enhance Public Trust.
