  • Provide a community-oriented Police Service
  • Protect persons and property through crime prevention, community education, and appropriate law enforcement; and
  • Provide a level and standard of police service of same or higher quality than exists elsewhere in Canada
Our Values
  • Community-Minded: We provide a service to our communities that is tailored to their cultural differences. We are aware of and responsive to the community's needs through leadership and guidance of the Police Services Boards.
  • Respect: We treat people the way we want to be treated. We cherish diversity.
  • Caring: We are sensitive to the community and individual traditions. We strive to speak and act in a professional manner.
  • Integrity and Ethics: We do what we say we will do. We act in an honest and sincere manner, reflective of our employee's highest standard of quality.
  • Competence: We develop our people to achieve, maintain or exceed the Provincial Standard of quality in Policing. Our people are dedicated and committed to the communities they consistently service.
  • Communication: We are committed to a two way flow of communication with our membership and the community, fostering a sense of belonging and unity of the two entities.
