Bouchie folks want Rural Crime Watch

Bachmeier: “It’s time we move these thieves out and start looking out for each other”

Like many of the rural communities in the Quesnel area, Bouchie Lake has a problem with break, enter and thefts.

Residents in that area are sick and tired of the thefts or worrying about having their homes broken into when they are away.

That’s why Barb Bachmeier and others are looking at creating Block Watch and Rural Crime Watch programs in their community.

The Bouchie Lake Community Association and the Bouchie Lake Recreation Commission are co-sponsoring at meeting at the Bouchie Lake Recreation Hall on Jan. 17, starting at 7 p.m.

Quesnel RCMP Const. Josh Nutley will make a presentation about the Block Watch and Rural Crime Watch programs and how the community of Bouchie Lake can benefit.

Bachmeier says they want to get people to sign up as captains and co-captains in the different areas.

Once people sign up, then they can get trained, Bachmeier explains.

“People are always stealing things and taking stuff from people’s garages.

“So when spring comes and crime shows up, we want them to get the message that we want them to get the hell out of here.

“Let’s be pro-active in looking out for each other.”
