Uniformed Division

Uniform Division

The Uniformed Division consists of the Patrol Operations Branch and the Community Policing Branch. These officers are the first responders for calls for service within the City.

The Patrol Operations Branch officers are responsible for the protection of life and property, the prevention of crime, the enforcement of all Federal and Provincial Statutes, and some Municipal By-Laws.  The Patrol Operations Branch provides support services such as traffic management, canine, and public order. The Community Policing Branch provides a variety of specialized support services to the community such as crime prevention, community foot patrol, school safety and diversity.

Officers work a variety of shifts throughout the day and the officer's respond to calls for service on a priority basis with those calls that are likely to endanger the life of any person taking top priority. Other officers of the Uniformed Division are assigned to the Headquarters Reception Unit and the Police Reporting Centre, where citizens call or attend to report incidents.

Members of the Uniformed Division continually strive to provide a professional and efficient police service that serves all needs of our diverse community. Our strength stems from our continued partnerships with all sectors of the community.

The work of the officers is augmented by many police/community partnerships including:
