Toronto Police Service volunteers provide an invaluable service to the people of Toronto. From canvassing neighbourhoods to assisting with missing persons reports, to following up with victims of crime, to simply extending a smile to a community member at a Toronto Police Service event, volunteers make a real difference in this city.

Auxiliary Volunteer Program

Auxiliary officers are dedicated team players who all share a common goal of bridging the gaps and encouraging partnerships between their communities and the TPS. The role is designed to assist the Service’s community mobilization initiatives, crime prevention programs, special events, parades, searches for missing persons and emergency call-outs.

Auxiliary officers are the greatest ambassadors for their communities. They represent people from many professions and stages of life. They are homemakers, health care workers, business professionals, lawyers, university students and trades people.

Victim Services Volunteers

Victim Services Toronto is so fortunate to have the dedicated support of over 150 volunteers who generously donate their time, skills and resources to our organization. Victim Services Toronto volunteers are valued members of our team and are critical to the ongoing success of the agency. Without the dedication, commitment and hard work of our volunteers, the organization would be unable to fulfill its mission and mandate.

Victim Services Toronto actively recruits, trains and engages qualified volunteers on a semi-annual basis to support all aspects of agency programming, service delivery, and operations.

Community Consultative Committees (CCC)

The consultation process is not meant to provide another level of police oversight, but rather to establish a process that affords opportunities for enhanced community safety involving community based activities, leadership opportunities, mutual exchange of information and the development of joint problem solving initiatives.

The purposes of Community Consultative Committees (CCC) are to set goals and objectives consistent with Service priorities at the beginning of each calendar year. An important function of Liaison officers is to organize and or assist when requested town hall meetings that are to be attended by the Chief of Police or other senior command officers. Request for assistance may originate from divisions or Community Consultative Committees that have an ongoing initiative in process.

The Community Consultative Committees are meant to serve and represent specific communities throughout the City. The membership is drawn from various organizations within each of these communities, and serves as a voice on wider policing issues such as training, recruiting, professional standards, and community mobilization.
