Crime Prevention - What We Do 

The Community Policing Office is a crime prevention office located in downtown Merritt at 2026 Granite Ave (Spirit Square).  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!

Business Watch Group

Are you looking to improve communication about crime, crime prevention, or even just share your ideas?   Why not join the Merritt Business Watch?

A business watch is a way that you can stay on top of what is happening in your neighborhood without having it take a lot of exta time out of your busy day.   Initially, there will be one meeting to discuss current concerns and exchange ideas on how to work together.  Then, we stay in touch with current concerns, prevention tips, and answers to questions as they come up.

If you would like to be involved please contact the Community Policing Office.  250-378-3955
