The Sault Ste. Marie Police Service is proud to announce the reinstatement of the Auxiliary Unit.
The previous class of Auxiliary Constables were active from 2018-2020, but the Unit was put on hold during the pandemic.
“Volunteering as an Auxiliary Constable is a great way to serve your community,” says Ben Bolduc, Inspector – Corporate Development and Emergency Management. “Several former members of our Auxiliary Unit have since been hired as police constables, which demonstrates the value of the experiential learning offered by our auxiliary program.”
Auxiliary Constables support Sault Police in many ways, such as assisting with community festivals, parades, street parties, and sporting events. They can also ride-along in police cruisers with officers to see how they answer emergency calls for service in our community.
“Through their volunteer work, auxiliary members gain unique insight into the world of policing,” says Hugh Stevenson, Chief of Police. “Re-instating the program is something we wanted to do for some time, and we are proud of the six new Auxiliary Constables joining the Sault Ste. Marie Police Service.”
Returning Auxiliary Unit member Dalaina Orr will serve as the Auxiliary Sergeant, providing leadership and guidance for the team.
The new Auxiliary Constables were sworn in at a ceremony at the Police Services Building on Monday, January 22, 2023.
