The Saskatoon Police Service recognizes the value that Saskatoon citizens bring to our organization on a daily basis, and looks forward to developing and strengthening this partnership for years to come.
The Volunteer Program combines the efforts of the police with the diverse group of people from our community. This select group of volunteers has been chosen to represent the department at various events throughout the year. The program has a dual purpose: to allow residents to gain a better understanding of the police service while allowing city police more insight into issues facing the community. By serving our community together, Saskatoon Police and its corps of volunteers hope to strengthen personal relationships and build a strong working environment that will benefit everyone.
The Saskatoon Police Service receives input from the Saskatoon Police Service Association and CUPE Local 59 to identify tasks that will be suitable for the volunteers to participate in.
Volunteers participate in functions such as; the annual Police BBQ, Platoon BBQ's, Race Against Racism, the SPS Foundation Half Marathon, Motorcycle Ride for Dad, EXXPLORE Emergency Services, Fish Forever, as well as other police and community activities. A number of volunteers have taken part in the SPS Community Police Academy.
The SPS Volunteer Program conducts annual recruitment in the early part of each year. As such, it is not accepting applications at this time. Stay tuned to early 2021 for more information on becoming a member of the SPS Volunteer Program.
