Agri-Watch program making a difference

A program designed to thwart crime in Chilliwack's rural areas has proven effective and expansion may be in the works.

Property owners in the Columbia Valley, Greendale, Rosedale, Ryder Lake and Yarrow are invited to an Agri-Watch information session.

The meeting will take place May 5, from 7:30 to 9 p.m. at Greendale elementary school (6621 Sumas Prairie Road).

Agri-Watch is a community-based program, encouraging residents to keep an eye out for suspicious activities and report to police.

Agri Watch is a recognized partner of the RCMP and has aided with police investigations in the Greendale area,” said RCMP Cst. Jamie Rae.
