RCMP seek input on community priorities

Feedback from public forum will be incorporated into Hope and Boston Bar three-year strategic plan

Hope and Boston Bar residents will have an opportunity to influence the RCMP’s three-year strategic plan.

RCMP detachments are mandated to create strategic priorities which reflect the concerns and issues of their specific communities and seek out community opinion on a variety of policing issues.

“It’s the public’s chance to come out and have a say,” said Staff Sgt. Suki Manj. “One of the main components of this is making sure that we’re meeting the needs of the community. We try to incorporate what we hear and try to prioritize all the feedback we get.”

A public forum will be held on March 4 at Hope municipal hall, 325 Wallace St., starting at 6 p.m. The meeting is open to residents of Hope, Boston Bar, Yale, Laidlaw, Dogwood Valley, Sunshine Valley and the First Nations communities policed by Hope/Boston Bar RCMP.

The three-year strategic plan will be completed by April 1, 2014 and then made public through a presentation to council.

For more information about the meeting, contact Hope RCMP at 604-869-7750 or Boston Bar RCMP at 604-867-9333.
