The city now has seven new auxiliary constables at the Terrace RCMP detachment.

Auxiliary constables are non-paid volunteers who dedicate countless hours to their training and participate in proactive community policing initiatives.

They are uniformed but unarmed and serve as sworn peace officers supporting the staff and regular members of the Terrace RCMP.

“I am very proud of the members of this class. I know they worked hard and had the support of their friends, families and employers to help them through. This program takes a lot of dedication and commitment. We are very excited to have them join our policing team here in Terrace,” says Const. Angela Rabut, community policing/media relations Terrace RCMP.

Program applicants must go through a rigorous security clearance process and successfully complete 160 hours of training including two provincial exams before they are sworn in and eligible to wear the uniform.

Their training began in June, 2015 and included a variety of topics, including: Law, Ethics, Dress and Deportment, Use of Force, Community Policing, and Officer Safety.

There were classroom sessions, practical training, presentations, and exams. The training was by officers of the Terrace Detachment.

After graduation, each auxiliary constable must log 160 volunteer hours each year for two years to stay in good standing in the program.

Terrace RCMP invite the public to the Terrace RCMP Auxiliary Graduation ceremony October 29th, from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Arena Banquet Room.
