Citizen’s Action Committee celebrates fifth anniversary
It was a day some thought would never come but last weekend a grassroots movement that partners police officers with regular citizens celebrated its fifth anniversary.
Lt. Francis Oliver.
Police say they think the idea works because it has regular citizens working alongside police officers on information campaigns on such topics as safe driving habits, home security and more.
“It’s easier when it’s one citizen talking to another,” said SQ communications officer Bruno Beaulieu.
A total of 17 CACPS groups have been established since 2005 with themost recent group, in Pointe-des-Cascades, holding its first information meeting tomorrow night at 7:30 p.m. at the Pointe-des-Cascades Community Centre, 52, chemin du Fleuve. For information or to join the Pointedes-Cascades group, call 450 455-5310.
SQ dignitaries recognized CACPS volunteers and founders gathered to mark the group’s fifth anniversary last Saturday.
