April 29, 2024 — On May 1, 2024, Vadium - Salmon Arm Bylaw Services will begin supporting the District of Sicamous through contract bylaw services.

“As our community grows and our summer boating, hiking and biking season fills up, it becomes more apparent that services are needed to ensure safety and that rules and bylaws are being enforced,” says Mayor Anderson. “We want to welcome everyone to Sicamous and encourage residents and visitors to abide by our parking, fire restriction and fireworks prohibition rules.”

The district currently has one full-time bylaw officer.  Salmon Arm Bylaw Services will compliment the hours of the full-time bylaw officer and provide coverage when needed. This seasonally contracted service will allow the district to provide increased bylaw enforcement and offer education about existing bylaws.

“Last year, council spoke and we heard,” says development services manager Nicole Hansen. “More bylaw coverage is needed during the busy summer months, especially with those long summer days.”

Salmon Arm Bylaw Services will provide one certified bylaw officer this summer. Hansen shares that parking and park patrol will be the priority for Salmon Arm Bylaw Services, with a focus on education over enforcement.

"As a locally owned and operated company deeply rooted in community values, we are committed to delivering exceptional service tailored to the unique needs of Sicamous residents," says Prasad Savanagouder, the director of Vadium Security.

Salmon Arm Bylaw Services has Level I and Level II trained officers and supports bylaw services in neighbouring communities including Armstrong and Enderby.

"We are excited to partner with the District of Sicamous to bring our customer service-driven program to the community,” Savanagouder concludes. Similarly, Hansen shared that she and her team “are excited to collaborate with Salmon Arm Bylaw Services and do some learning along the way."
