RCMPVolunteer Opportunities

The Surrey RCMP recognizes the valuable contribution of volunteers in the delivery of community programs and services. The special talents, skills and abilities that volunteers bring to the table are integral to the success of our community policing and crime prevention programming.

RCMP

There are three basic streams of volunteer opportunities available at the Surrey RCMP:

Auxiliary Constable Program
Auxiliary Constables are uniformed volunteers under the command of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.

Restorative Justice (RJ) Program
The Restorative Justice Program is a volunteer based program that supports youth by encouraging them to understand the effects of the harm they have done and provides them with opportunities to make amends. It provides alternatives to youth involvement in the formal court process of the criminal justice system by way of extra-judicial measures.

District Office Volunteers
District volunteers assist members and staff with many administrative duties and front counter services, but may also participate in various crime prevention programs that operate from these offices, like Block Watch, Speed Watch, Stolen Auto Recovery Program and volunteer bike patrols.
