In the latter part of 2002, the possibility of opening a community policing office was discussed at the monthly meetings of the Porters Lake Community Services Association. As the ideas grew, a committee was formed to contact the RCMP with this idea. In the Spring of 2003, with the cooperation of the RCMP command staff and the local Musquodoboit Harbour officers, an office in the Community Centre was renovated and on December 5, 2003, the office was opened with great fanfare.

Volunteers from the local community are instrumental in maintaining this office. Each volunteer had to go through an extensive security check and now donate their time to keep the office open from 8 AM to 4 PM, Monday through Saturday. There is no funding from the RCMP and the office is maintained strictly from donations and assistance from the Porters Lake Community Services Association. As in all volunteer organizations, we always need more help. If you can assist us with a few hours of your time, please give us a call.

The main aim of the office is to increase the police presence in our community. The volunteers can act as a liaison between persons with community concerns and the RCMP. We have helped to organize Town Hall meetings as well as enlisting volunteers for other programs such as COPS, Neighborhood Watch, and Citywatch. Why not just drop in to say hello? We are located in the Porters Lake Community Centre at the side entrance. Our phone number is 827-4294. If no one is there, voice mail will take the call.
