On many nights in Saskatoon, residents who are dedicated to making their neighbourhood safer, can be found patrolling the streets. Citizen Patrol is a joint partnership between the residents of Saskatoon, Community Associations, and the Saskatoon Police Service. Training and support are provided to the civilian patrollers who wish to play a role in preventing crime and reporting suspicious activity in their neighbourhoods. They also assist police in providing a visible presence and a deterrent to criminal activity.
On Thursday, August 23rd Mayor Don Atchison will join members of the Mount Royal group as they patrol their neighbourhood. The media is invited to attend beginning at 9:00 p.m. at the Westgate Plaza, 22nd Street and Whitney Avenue.
