Halloween Patrol in Delta

Volunteers, extra police, to tackle vandalism in North and South Delta neighbourhoods.

The Corporation of Delta is teaming up with CUPE Local 454 to protect municipal facilities and parks through the Halloween Patrol.

The volunteer patrols will be held on the evenings of Oct. 27 and 31 from 6:30 p.m. to 1:30 a.m. both nights.

The patrol is a coordinated effort involving the Delta police and fire departments, municipal hall and members of the Civic Employees Union.

A lead at the Engineering Department will make sure there’s an operational plan in place each night and will supervise a North Delta and South Delta captain to oversee a number of teams in municipal vehicles.

All team members, who will wear clothing indicating they’re working for Delta, are to observe and report any trouble or suspicious activity.

The police department will also have increased patrols during the weekend, as will the fire department.

In addition, the lights on all playing fields will be left on overnight on Oct. 26, 27, 28 and 31.

The initiative has proved successful in deterring vandalism since it was implemented four years ago.

Anyone who sees suspicious activity is asked to call Delta police at 604-946-4411.
