$800,000 For Moose Jaw Policing Initiatives

Released on October 19, 2021

The Ministry of Corrections, Policing and Public Safety is providing $440,000 for four police positions in Moose Jaw through the Municipal Police Grants program in 2021-22. 

 "We look forward to working with the Moose Jaw Police Service," Moose Jaw Wakamow MLA Greg Lawrence said on behalf of Corrections, Policing and Public Safety Minister Christine Tell.  "This funding will go toward important policing initiatives that strengthen and protect our community." 

The funding for Moose Jaw supports the continued delivery of targeted policing initiatives, such as the Police and Crisis Team (PACT), which comprises police officers and mental health workers who provide an integrated and coordinated response to persons experiencing mental health crisis in the community.

Saskatchewan Government Insurance is also providing $360,000 for two positions as part of the Combined Traffic Services Saskatchewan initiative. 

"It gives me great pleasure to be part of this announcement," Moose Jaw Acting Mayor Dawn Luhning said. "Community safety is always a priority.  We are grateful for the continued support of the Government of Saskatchewan through this municipal police grant program.  The program will ensure that Moose Jaw's Police Service continues to provide quality leadership for community safety solutions in our city." 

"The continuing partnership between the Moose Jaw Police Service and the Ministry provides additional resources to advance our shared vision of safe, harmonious and inclusive communities," Moose Jaw Police Service Chief Rick Bourassa said. "The increased focus these positions bring to safety on our roadways and supports to those in need across our region effectively enhances community safety and wellbeing."

The Ministry of Corrections and Policing provides funds to police services across Saskatchewan through the Municipal Police Grants program to support 133 municipal police positions and targeted policing initiatives.
