Block Watch Program - Clint van Blanken 604-476-6916

Citizens on Patrol - Charlene Hargreaves - 604 467-7644
Citizens on Patrol volunteers act as the "eyes and ears" of the police. In pairs, they patrol the streets of Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows in both marked and personal vehicles and, using radio equipment, report suspicious and criminal activities to the police. Occasionally, volunteers will also include random foot patrols during their shift on Fridays and Saturdays. In addition to the regular components of the program, volunteers also perform other important initiatives, such as the Stolen Auto Recovery program and Parking Lot Audit program. These highly trained volunteers also attend RCMP CounterAttack road checks to offer their assistance.
Citizens Volunteer Bike Patrol – Charlene Hargreaves 604 467-7644
The Maple Ridge Volunteer Bicycle Patrol Program sponsored by ICBC, launched in August 2003, serves as a crime deterrent during rides through local neighbourhoods. The main focus of the Program is being eyes and ears for the RCMP, reporting all suspicious, criminal and nuisance behavior they observe. This involves team patrols maintaining contact with their own dispatcher and the RCMP dispatch as needed. Not Limited to just patrols, the Citizens Volunteer Bike Patrol assist with Stolen Auto Recovery, community events, bicycle safety training, and security assessments.

Crime-Free Multi-Housing Program - Clint van Blanken 604 476-6916
A program designed to help residents, owners, and mangers of rental property, keep drugs and other illegal activity off their property. The RCMP is looking for someone interested in maintaining the existing program and perhaps expanding it.
Speed Watch - Charlene Hargreaves 604 467-7644
Speed Watch is an education and awareness program designed to reduce the instances of speed on municipal roadways in Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows. Volunteers attend certain high speed locations and, using a radar unit and digital reader board, display and record vehicle speeds. Vehicles clocked at 15 kph or more over the speed limit will receive a letter or student "ticket" by mail. At this time we are increasing the calibre of our Speed Watch program by offering more interesting training opportunities and including problem solving anti-speed strategies as part of the regular program.
