Community Safety Officer Program

Year: 2019

Number: POP 5-19A

Department: Saskatchewan Ministry of Corrections, Public Safety and Policing

WHEREAS costs associated with implementing a Community Safety Officer Program (CSOP) are deemed by the provincial government to be the responsibility of municipalities;

WHEREAS the start-up costs are significant to implement a CSOP, being too large for many rural municipalities to afford;

WHEREAS the presence of Community Safety Officers (CSO) aids and/or replaces some of the dwindling presence of rural RCMP and Highway Patrol Officers (also known as DOTs);

WHEREAS when a CSOP exists in a municipality it can potentially reduce the workload and pressure on provincial resources;

WHEREAS it is to the province’s benefit if there are more CSOPs in place throughout the province;

BE IT RESOLVED that SARM lobby the provincial government to provide funding and/or incentives for municipalities to engage in a Community Safety Officer Program if they wish to do so.
