A sense of security and safety with an added peace of mind is what any resident would want from their area. For residents of the agricultural area of Homestead Apple Orchards, they have a little assistance.
The Apple Orchard Patrollers, which is a volunteer group of 9 individuals belonging to the Greater Walkerville Community Police Patroller are keeping residents at ease with the community service they provide.
Their good deeds have not gone unnoticed as the Portuguese Forum thanked them in the form of donating an accident trailer to the volunteers.
The patrollers receive no funding for their duties and provide services such as victim empowerment, support counsellors, paramedics and a reaction team.
