Schools Division

Responsibilities & Services

It wasn't long ago that officers within schools was indicative of a problem and not widely accepted. Today, officers are welcomed into schools and police presence is desired. In addition to serving as a resource to students, parents, and teachers, youth services officers offer peace of mind in light of the rise in school violence taking place across the nation.

Roles of the Youth Services Officer

The department's youth services officers are a positive influence on the community's youth. They assume many roles, serving as a resource, confidant, mentor, and instructor.

The youth services officers also participate in many after school activities and functions such as sporting events, socials, music programs, and parades. They are committed to supporting the children, not only in their education, but also in other aspects that shape their lives.
