R/Cst. Scott Rothermel is currently the Community Liaison Officer for School District #62 and the coordinator of the district’s VTRA team. His current position is jointly supported by the Sooke School District, the RCMP and the City of Langford.
As a police officer for the past 8 years, his last 6 years have been spent working with youth and in youth related programs.
The role of the Community Liaison Officer provides crime prevention, education, investigation, and mediation between the RCMP, school staff, students and parents within the school environment; moreover, it works to develop strong relationships between the police and the youth in the community through positive interactions.
Scott supports the belief that while youth make up only 20% of our population, they are 100% our future.
