The student Crime Stoppers program, expected to be rolled out in the New Year, has been given a $1,000 boost from the folks at Coast Capital Savings.
The credit union’s manager David Armstrong and some of his staff met with Cowichan Crime Stoppers vice president Derek Crawford and Cpl. Cari Lougheed, officer in charge of the North Cowichan/Duncan Crime Prevention Unit, on Dec. 9 to present a cheque.
The student Crime Stoppers program incorporates students in an effort to fight crime in the Cowichan Valley.
“Cowichan Crime Stoppers is very thankful for the donation and will put the dollars to good use,” Lougheed said.
