By BBN Staff: On Saturday, the National Coordinator of the Voluntary Special Constables (VSC) and Citizens on Patrol (COP) program, retired Supt. Rudolph Orio, accompanied by Carmelita Village Council chairman Elvis Reynolds, Sr. Supt. Marlon Allen, Deputy Commanding Officer Inspector Jose Mendez and Community Policing Officer Sgt. Zenoibo Coc held a training session in Carmelita village, Orange Walk.

Orio told BBN that the training sessions being held are an introduction of community development, crime prevention, people’s coalition, neighborhood watch and COP programs. He said that the trainees will organize a public meeting to form neighborhood watches in their communities.

Yesterday, Orio met with the Agua Vida and Spring field communities to introduce the same community development concept.

Orio told us that the communities welcomed the idea and will organize a public meeting in order to form people’s coalition and neighborhood watches in their area as well as to invite good standing members of the community to join COP.
