22 Division Toronto Police Service (TPS) Rover Crew
The 22 Division Toronto Police Service (TPS) Rover Crew is a joint program between the Toronto Police Service, Humber College and Scouts Canada. It was founded by Police Foundation students at the Humber College Lakeshore Campus in 2003. Rovers are the scouting designation for young women and men, 18 to 26 years old. The program is designed to prepare young people for the future by encouraging them to give back to the community while also giving them an insight into the law enforcement field. Members are all students of Humber College and are taking a program within the School of Social and Community Services (e.g. Police Foundations, Crime Scene Investigation, Private Security Investigation, Justice Studies, etc.)

Youth in Policing Initiative (YIPI)
This Youth in Policing Initiative (YIPI) enhances the link between the police and the neighbourhoods we serve. This initiative gives young people an opportunity to develop job skills while fostering positive partnerships with the Toronto Police Service.
Youth, ages 15 to 18, who reside in a Neighbourhood Improvement Area in the city, are employed through the summer and throughout the year, working alongside police officers and civilian staff in a wide range of roles.
The program is not unique to Toronto, as it was created and funded by the Ministry of Children and Youth Services, and is now used throughout the province.
Adult & Youth Volunteer Program (AYVP)
The Adult & Youth Volunteer Program (AYVP) is a Toronto Police Service initiative designed to build a working relationship between the public and the police. We aim to attract volunteers who are motivated to work actively within their community and represent the Toronto police in both a pleasant and professional manner. Entry into this program is very competitive and it attracts a large amount of applicants each year. The Adult & Youth Volunteer Program assigns volunteers to work alongside the Community Safety Response Unit officers at their local police station.
