$330,000 For Yorkton Policing Initiatives

Released on October 20, 2021

The Ministry of Corrections, Policing and Public Safety is providing $330,000 to the City of Yorkton for policing initiatives.  The funding is being provided through the Municipal Police Grants program for three existing Yorkton RCMP positions in 2021-22.

"We are dedicated to supporting policing services throughout the province, and this investment will ensure that the Yorkton community continues to receive crucial public safety services," Yorkton MLA Greg Ottenbreit said on behalf of Corrections, Policing and Public Safety Minister Christine Tell.  

The Municipal Police Grants program supports enhanced community policing throughout the city and works to ensure a safer community, which is a top priority for the Government of Saskatchewan.

"The City of Yorkton is truly appreciative of the annual provincial funding of the Municipal Police Grant," Yorkton Mayor Mitch Hippsley said. "The RCMP represents the pinnacle of safety in our fine city and is always playing an active role in both our school systems and on the streets. Our excellent policing services are part of Yorkton's attraction for both new citizens and businesses."

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.
