The watch in Kamloops grows, block by block

The city has a growing number of eyes and ears on the ground in neighbourhoods seeking out suspicious activity.

Kamloops RCMP police support services supervisor Kevin Beaton said the city’s 30th Block Watch group was recently established, a number that has grown from zero in recent years.

“That program continues to flourish,” Beaton said.

Block Watch works in collaboration with RCMP.

The program brings together residents and encourages them to be vigilant while out and about in their neighbourhoods. Suspicious activities are then reported to police.

Local Block Watch groups are also active on social media.
