The Ottawa Neighbourhood Watch Executive Committee (ONWEC) is currently seeking volunteer applications for the role of Chair and Secretary to establish a new board and I would like to encourage interested residents to apply.
Ottawa Neighbourhood Watch is a citywide community program supported by the Ottawa Police Service.
The right volunteer should possess knowledge of Neighbourhood Watch programs, experience with working on a board, leadership within the community, good communication skills, willingness to engage in a positive dialogue with community and working with members of the Ottawa Police. Members normally serve a two-year term and must be willing to commit to monthly meetings.
As Chair of Crime Prevention Ottawa and Councillor for Stittsville, I have witnessed firsthand the amount of care our residents put forward to helping keep our communities safe. As such, this is the perfect opportunity to put some of your ideas into motion.
The deadline for submissions will be Tuesday, February 21st, 2017. Please visit ONWEC for further details and application forms.
If you, or someone you know, would like to apply or would like more information, you can also contact Ottawa Police Cst. Jeff Kostuch at 613-236-1222, ext. 2347 or e-mail NeighbourhoodWatch@ottawapolice.ca.
