Baie-D’Urfé Volunteer Citizens on Patrol program seeks to help the Town to be the safest one on the island of Montreal and to enhance community pride, involvement, safety and security. The corps of dedicated volunteers complements the local and regional emergency services and is ready to assist in daily patrols and in major emergencies and disasters.
In addition to providing daily patrols, Baie-D’Urfé vCOPs (Volunteer Citizens On Patrol) are actively engaged in numerous events and activities that rely on assistance, coordination, and supervision, all with a view to providing a secure and safe environment for our citizens.
Baie-D’Urfé’s vCOPs enjoy a privileged and close working relationship with the SPVM Police serving at PDQ-01, actively taking part in joint operations, as well as participating in training exercises and simulations. Both the Police and the vCOPs champion the values of community outreach policing.
