Terrace RCMP is looking for citizens of good character to become the ultimate volunteer and join the Auxiliary Constable Program.

The detachment wants to strengthen community and police partnerships by providing volunteers with the opportunity to address the cause of, or reduce the fear of, crime and disorder.

“The mandate of the auxiliary program is to participate in community policing activities relating to public safety and crime prevention (on an unarmed basis) as volunteers under the command of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police,” says Const. Angela Rabut, auxiliary coordinator Terrace RCMP.

“Auxiliary constables must contribute 160 hours of volunteer time per year. These volunteers participate in community policing programs and ride on patrol with police officers in a support role.”

Training includes approximately 150 hours of classroom, practical, and police defensive techniques for three months. There is an exam administered by the Justice Institute of British Columbia at the halfway point and at the end. Attendance at all classes is mandatory.

Applicant Requirements: minimum age – 19 years, Canadian citizen in good character, high school diploma or equivalent work-related experience, valid Class 5 BC Drivers Licence or higher, must meet medical suitability, applicants must attain RCMP security clearance and have First Aid.

Deadline to apply is April 30, 2014.

For further information, contact Const. Angela Rabut, Terrace RCMP Auxiliary Policing Coordinator at 250-638-7429 or pick up an application form at the detachment.
