Did you know West St Paul has its own chapter of COPP? As part of the Manitoba Citizens on Patrol Program (COPP) this community based crime deterrent initiative is growing with now 73 other groups in Manitoba. The success of the program over the last 20 years has demonstrated having an active citizen’s crime prevention program in the community, is an effective deterrence to crime. The WSP COPP is supported by the RM of West Paul, in addition to our local businesses who have shown their support with donations to our program. COPP is endorsed by law enforcement agencies throughout the province.
COPP volunteers in West St Paul actively watch for criminal or suspicious activities and report such occurrences to the RCMP. Patrollers are identifiable by their highly reflective yellow vests with the COPP logo as well as blue lettered decals on the doors of their vehicles. The patrols are random at any time of the day or night.
