North Battleford’s Community Safety Officer (CSO) program will be under the microscope over the year ahead.
The city’s CSOs were granted increased responsibilities starting in June, 2017. The aim was for officers to take on more follow-up work related to low-risk offences, which in turn would help free up the Battlefords RCMP officers’ time so they could work on more serious investigations and crimes in-progress.
City Manager Randy Patrick said he will review the program focusing on the CSOs added responsibilities during the past year.
