Our officers have CPR, First Aid and defribulator training giving them 'first responders' status. Whenever a life threatening medical call comes in to our 911 emergency centre, our members are dispatched to assist Emergency Medical Services. This increases the victim's chances of survival.
Our department provides criminal records checks for individuals needing clearance for job applications or volunteer work.
A $35 administration fee is required for criminal record checks for employment purposes; and $10 for volunteer work.
In most cases, criminal record checks can take 7 work days to complete. Applicants must provide two pieces of identification to start the process, such as a driver's license and medicare care.
Once completed, individuals will be provided documentation as to whether or not they have a criminal record.
Our officers are also very involved with charitable organizations in the community such as minor hockey and baseball, Curl for Cancer, and various other crime prevention events. We also organize a yearly bike rodeo in local arenas that hand out thousands of dollars in prize to children ages 5 to 13.
We are very implicated at the provincial level by being part of various committees such as Crime Stoppers and the Criminal Intelligence Service.
