L'Etoile - - IN OTHER WORDS -

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.
