New Community Safety Officer Recruits Graduate

Released on December 16, 2016

Saskatchewan communities and families will be safer with the graduation of twelve new Community Safety Officers (CSOs).

“These new Community Safety Officers will help ensure Saskatchewan families and communities are safe,” Justice Minister and Attorney General Gordon Wyant said.  “The Community Safety Officer program allows communities to address low-risk to harm, high-priority policing needs.”

CSOs help meet community priorities including traffic and liquor enforcement, bylaw enforcement and serve as crime prevention community liaisons.  Introducing CSOs will free up the RCMP and municipal police to focus on higher impact needs in participating communities.

The following communities have CSOs graduating:
  • Prince Albert -- 3
  • Meadow Lake -- 1
  • RM of Meota -- 1
  • Touchwood Agency Tribal Council -- 5
  • File Hills First Nations Police Service -- 2
With this graduating class, there will be 31 CSOs working in seven municipalities and 10 First Nation communities around the province.

SUMA and SARM collaborated with the Ministry of Justice and police agencies in developing this program designed to enhance police services in Saskatchewan.  The CSO program officially began on December 1, 2014.
