File # Nanaimo RCMP salutes their volunteers
The week of April 23rd to April 29th is National Volunteer Appreciation week and accordingly the Nanaimo RCMP salutes the 13 Auxiliary Constables and 32 community policing volunteers who on any given day or event, represent the local Detachment.
These individuals bring with them a vast array of experiences and backgrounds, and in 2016 volunteered an amazing 3100 hours to the City of Nanaimo. Mike Bodden, a volunteer since 2010, was asked why he volunteers
I volunteer to give back to the community. Leila Tremblay a volunteer since 2006 added
What I get from volunteering with the Nanaimo RCMP is the knowledge that I can make a difference in my community.
Whatever the reason, these individuals assist greatly in connecting the local Detachment with their community. From handing out reflectors to pedestrians, conducting distracted driving surveys, bike registrations, speed monitoring or assisting in other crime prevention initiatives, they do it because they care.
On Thursday April 27th, the Nanaimo RCMP will be hosting an appreciation evening for their volunteers.
They are amazing people and this is our way to say thank you for what they do for our Detachment and this community, "said Superintendent Cameron Miller, Officer in Charge of the Nanaimo RCMP.
