Rotary helps out with Citizens on Patrol training video

This past school year Timberline Secondary student Stuart Hattum created a new training video for Citizens on Patrol (C.O.P.)

This past school year Timberline Secondary student Stuart Hattum created a new training video for Citizens on Patrol (C.O.P.).

“I had always wanted to be involved in something a bit more hands on,” Hattum said in an email. “Working with set dates, deadlines, a written script, getting to use different camera equipment and doing some independent filming for the project was a massive learning experience.”

The Campbell River Noon Hour Rotary club funded the project, donating $1,500 to C.O.P.

The previous training video was made in 2002 and president Dave Jackson said is was dated and needed replacement.

Jackson said it was also an excellent opportunity for C.O.P to network with students, the RCMP, the community at large and the Citizens on Patrol members.

Part of the money was granted to Hattum for post-secondary tuition and the rest was used to buy new equipment for the Media Education program at Timberline. Hattum is studying Media Arts and 3D modelling and animation at NAIT in Edmonton this fall.

C.O.P is a group of volunteers that assist the RCMP in reducing crime in the community. There are 60 volunteers in Campbell River and they assist with several programs.
