Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteers are an integral component in the successful delivery of community policing services, and are especially important at the detachment level where their work is often hands on with that of our members, staff, and community clients.

The purpose of volunteer programs is to complement and not replace employees. Volunteers do not perform law enforcement or operational duties performed by Regular Members.

Volunteers assist in nearly every aspect of community policing. Here are a few examples:

  • Block Watch
  • Operation Red Nose
  • Bike Rodeos/Patrols
  • Airport/Costal Watches
  • Pipes and Drums Band
  • Victim Services Program
  • Community Advisory Committee
  • Citizens on Patrol
  • Community Police Offices

Volunteers with the RCMP must meet certain requirements which include being at least 16 years of age, being responsible and of good character, and achieving the appropriate level of security clearance.

Auxiliary Constable Program

Auxiliary Constables are uniformed volunteers who participate in community policing activities, on an unarmed basis and under the supervision of the RCMP. They assist with community-based policing and crime prevention, and may also assist officers under other circumstances.

Restorative Justice Program

The Restorative Justice Program is a volunteer based program that supports youth by encouraging them to understand the effects of the crime they have committed and provides an opportunity to make it better. As a volunteer, you would assist in organizing and facilitating meetings between offenders and victims.
