Speed Watch looking for volunteers

Chilliwack’s Speed Watch program is looking for volunteers to help fill its ranks.

Chilliwack’s Speed Watch program is looking for volunteers to help fill its ranks.

The group, which works under the Chilliwack Community Policing Society, acts in partnership with the Chilliwack RCMP to monitor traffic speeds and remind motorists to drive safely. Members can often be seen on Chilliwack roadsides with radar guns and speed reader boards.

The program is looking for volunteers to help staff its traffic checks. Applicants must be over the age of 19, have a valid driver’s license and be able to pass a basic security clearance.

Speed Watch is also looking for a program co-coordinator. This is a volunteer position, where good planning and supervisory skills are a definite asset.

Anyone interested in learning more about either of these positions can contact Cpl. Doug Kivinen at the Chilliwack Community Policing Society at 45877 Wellington Ave., 604-393-3000.
