New Year’s Message

January 7, 2013

For immediate release:


Saanichton, B.C.

The Central Saanich Police Service would like to take this opportunity to extend our best wishes for a safe and prosperous New Year to all our E-Alert subscribers. We thank you for your participation and interest and we are committed to continuing to provide timely and useful information to you.

We would also like to recognize Cpl Janis Jean who retired in December 2012.  Cpl Jean had an exceptional and distinguished career of community service and was responsible for many of the innovative services we provide, including the E-Alert program.  Her smiling face and caring spirit will be greatly missed at the Central Saanich Police headquarters.

We are  pleased to announce the launch of a new campaign designed to help seniors protect themselves from scams. The primary message we are sharing with our seniors is to “Ask Us First” if they are solicited for money, services, or personal information from someone they don’t know. “Don’t be scammed – be sure, Ask Us First”.  Large fridge magnets with the same “Ask Us First”  message will be available for free from the Central Saanich Seniors Centre,  the Central Saanich Police Service front counter, and the Central Saanich Community Police office in Brentwood Bay.  See our winter newsletter for further information.

We would also like to pass on a reminder to drivers that children are back in school this week after the Christmas holidays.  Please be aware of children walking to school and the local 30km/h school speed zones.

Thank you,


Cpl. Wes Penny

Community Liaison Officer
