Crime is increasing and criminals are moving from place to place. We are here to help you reduce crime or potential crime in your neighbourhood by training and liaison. As a trickle down effect, it will eventually reduce home and car insurance and increase the safety of adults, children and the elderly.
We also need volunteers to help out the Directors with accounting (QuickBooks), recruiting and advertising or grant writing. If you have any of these talents, we would be happy to have you on board.
