National Volunteer Week is April 6-12th, 2014. This is an opportunity for us to recognize, appreciate and thank our valuable volunteers throughout our Region.

Volunteers provide generous personal time, dedicated to strengthening our communities. From high school students to senior volunteers, these gracious people are involved in community programs and events that help our communities shine.

The Halton Regional Police Service has the support of over 200 volunteers throughout the Halton Region who work alongside our police officers and civilian members, fulfilling vital roles in helping us provide the best police service we can in one of the safest regions in Canada.

The Halton Regional Police volunteer programs include Auxiliary Policing, Communities on Phone Patrol (COPP), Seniors and Law Enforcement Together (SALT), Seniors Helpline and Victim Services.

We currently have 60 Auxiliary Police officers who volunteered 8216 hours and attended 119 events in 2013.

Our Communities on Phone Patrol volunteers function out of each district and in total, we have 74 volunteers that range from age 21 to 87!! Congratulations to Al Weatherhead, our oldest and still one of the busiest COPP’s volunteers we have.

We have 43 senior volunteers that include both Seniors and Law Enforcement Together (SALT) and those that dedicate time to the Halton Seniors Helpline. Shirley Broostad, a senior helping seniors, turns 84 this year. You are never too old to volunteer your time to help others.

Our Victim Services Unit (VSU) has 36 volunteers who are dedicated to assisting victims of crimes and offer assistance and resources to help people in need get through a difficult time in their lives. Our Victim Services volunteers are compassionate and caring and are a valuable part of our police response. These volunteers have dedicated close to 1000 hours in 2013 and have responded to 96 crisis calls.

Thank you, to all our Halton Regional Police volunteers for your time, your commitment and your support.

“Thank you, to all the volunteers across the region for being invaluable on so many levels and for making our communities such wonderful and caring places to live. Police and the public, working together as one!” says Chief Stephen Tanner.
