Community Mobilization Unit

The community services department of the Cobourg Police Services is the responsibility of Sergeant Paul Legere who oversees the activities and conducts the following programmes:

  Values, Influences and Peers (V.I.P.) - This program is currently under    review, with new sessions planned for all classes, from JK - 8, in each school.

  This program will cover issues such as Rail Safety, Bullying and Drug Awareness. It will be delivered in conjunction with other Youth resource organizations.

  Child Proofing is also done by select volunteers and consists of fingerprinting and photographing the child (with consent of the parents)

 

Police and volunteers assist with the delivery of the Elmer the Safety Elephant program along with the Operation Lifesaver (railway safety) program.

Liaising closely with the staff of the local High Schools, and even sitting in some 'restorative justice' sessions, the Community Mobilization officers know that by keeping in close touch with vulnerable youth and their teachers and mentors, we can keep as near as possible to youth crimes, thus ensuring a quick resolution of problems. Cobourg is well served by this process.
