Who We Are
We are a group of citizens who volunteer our time to the Police Service as a means of contributing to our community. The unit was formed in January 1997 and consists of both men and woman from various walks of life.
The mandate of the Auxiliary Unit is to assist the parent police service with various community events. Assistance may come in the form of traffic duty, crowd control as well as public relations for the South Simcoe Police Service.
The rank structure of the unit is made up of Auxiliary Sergeants and Constables, overseen by a parent service member, that services as a liaison under the direction of the Chief of Police.
Training & Duties
Auxiliary Officers receive training in a wide variety of areas of policing:
- First Aid
- Use of Force
- Criminal Code
- Traffic & Crowd Control
- Radio & Computer Operations
- Report Writing
The training is reviewed and updated on a regular basis to keep the members current. Members of the South Simcoe Police Service Auxiliary Unit must attend all monthly in-service training meetings and devote a minimum of 12 hours per month of volunteer time. Auxiliary Officers are expected to be available for emergency “call-outs” to assist in searches, crime scene preservation and disasters.
The Auxiliary Officer’s uniform, which is supplied by the police service, consists of the necessary equipment and clothing, to perform the array of duties required of its members.
