Crime Prevention - What We Do 

The Community Policing Office is a crime prevention office located in downtown Merritt at 2026 Granite Ave. The CPO works with community partners to identify the root causes of crime and through education and awareness, strives to prevent and reduce crime in the community. 

The Community Policing Office is a joint effort between the City of Merritt and the RCMP but it is not another RCMP detachment office.  Rather the purpose of community policing is to encourage the community to become involved in crime prevention and crime reduction programs.  If you are interested in volunteering for any of our programs, including working at the Community Policing Office, applications can be picked up at the CPO.  Unless it is a youth focused program, volunteers must be 19 years of age, a resident of BC, and consent to an RCMP criminal records check. 

The office is run by Community Policing Coordinator Marlene Jones in conjunction with RCMP Constable Tracy Dunsmore.  They work with the community to formulate effective programs that make our community safer!
