The Central Alberta Crime Prevention Centre is open to the public starting on Tuesday.

Hours of operation are Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays between 9:30 am and 3:30 p.m.

Executive director TerryLee Ropchan said the hours are expected to change this spring, once they have a chance to determine the types of requests and hours that residents are asking for.

“As well, if we are able to hire students this summer we will extend the hours and offer more opportunities in the community to connect with the centre,” said Ropchan.

In the meantime, residents can reach the centre and ask to meet after 3:30 p.m. or on Mondays, Fridays or Saturdays.

Three crime prevention programs operate out of the centre —Red Deer Neighbourhood Watch, Red Deer Citizens On Patrol and Central Alberta Crime Stoppers. The centre welcomes inquiries from other programs or services that may want to join the centre.

Visitors to the centre will be able to find out how to volunteer for these services, as well as find out information on the crime prevention programs and be referred to any other resources.

The centre can work with those who are experiencing problems with crime, including drug houses in their neigbourhoods.

Centre staff will also give tours and presentations.

Corporate sponsorship is also welcomed.

The centre can be found at No. 108, 4711 51st Ave.

Its phone number is 403-986-9904, email at crime.prevention@hotmail.com and online through www.cacpc.ca.
