The Portage RCMP welcomed three new members yesterday.  The additional help comes in the form of summer students, who will act as community liaisons.  Devin Rand, Jessica McDougall and Keegan Collett were hired by the City and the RM of Portage and will mostly work with downtown businesses.  Summer student Jessica McDougall is interested in becoming an RCMP officer and believes this experience will be a valuable stepping stone. 
Portage RCMP Constable Dave Spakowski says having the students for the summer will be a benefit to the RCMP as they'll be able to utilize them for a lot of the public relations work.
