Estevan Police Service Receives $330,000 for Targeted Policing Initiatives

Released on November 24, 2017

The Government of Saskatchewan is taking action to ensure the safety of Estevan communities and families through the Municipal Police Grants.

This provincial contribution of $330,000 will fund three existing Estevan Police Service positions in 2017-18.

“Community safety continues to be a top priority in our government,” Estevan MLA Lori Carr said on behalf of Justice Minister and Attorney General Don Morgan.  “I have had the opportunity to see first-hand what this support for targeted policing is doing in Estevan and area.  Having these types of initiatives are very important for keeping our communities safe.”

The programs supported through the Municipal Police Grants work to improve community safety through the Enhanced Community Policing and Serious Crime units.  Another important program is the Combined Traffic Services Saskatchewan division.  The traffic unit is a combined unit between Estevan, Weyburn and the RCMP and covers southeast Saskatchewan.  The unit works to improve safety on the highways through increased awareness and enforcement of traffic regulations.

“We would like to thank the Ministry of Justice as well as the provincial government for their continued support of the Estevan Police Service with the Municipal Police Grant for 2017-18,” Estevan Mayor Roy Ludwig said.  “These funds are needed and appreciated as this allows our police service to continue to give the exemplary service to our community that is expected.”

“We are appreciative of the provincial funding provided through the Municipal Police Grants to assist with increasing public safety within our community,” Estevan Police Service Chief Paul Ladoucer said.  “These funds provide us with the capacity to enhance our ability to focus on areas such as traffic services, drugs and intelligence and major crime investigations.  Without this funding, these services would not be available.”

The provincial government provides funds to urban police services across the province to support 128 municipal police positions and policing initiatives.  In combination with the Provincial Response Team, this grant fulfills the government’s commitment to supporting the policing services within the province’s municipalities.
