Class 24 Graduation Inspection
The Peel Regional Auxiliary Police Service is supported by over 100 active volunteers. Supporting our volunteers, on a full-time basis are, a Sergeant, a Constable, and a civilian administrative support staff member. The Auxiliary Service supports the regular police service in many ways, including:
- Patrol and marine escorts
- R.I.D.E., program assistance
- Special events
- Emergency callouts
These unpaid volunteers show their support for Peel Regional Police, while giving back to their community.
- Countless hours are put in at special events such as, Santa Clause and Remembrance Day parades, local community events like the Streetsville Bread and Honey Festival, Khalsa Day Parade, and Canada Day celebrations in Brampton and Mississauga.
- Assistance is provided to the Training Bureau at Recruit Graduations.
- Involved daily with Canada Immigration to be on hand for Citizenship Court swearing in ceremonies.
Since the unit was formed in 1989, Auxiliary Police Service members have participated in many community fundraising events, such as:
- Toys For Tots campaign
- Hospital visits to children at Christmas
- Peel Children's Safety Village (A street at the village is named Auxiliary Avenue)
- Car-wash for cancer, which has raised several thousand dollars to date for cancer research
- Gathering, sorting, and shipping clothing to the victims of the Manitoba Flood
The Auxiliary Service has played an important role in a number of major investigations. A victim's shoe was located during a field search at a homicide scene, as well as a weapon used in another incident. Many searches for Alzheimer's patients have also involved Auxiliary Officers.
