Auxiliary Program

The Saint John Police Force Auxiliary is comprised of citizens from the community who offer their services to assist the police force in emergencies or with the regular force duties.  Auxiliary police members are trained to Force standards and, under the Police Act, have all of the authority, privileges, rights and immunities of a peace officer when working under the supervision of a regular member of the Force.

The Auxiliary Program is and will continue to be an integral part of the community and a successful partnership with the Saint John Police Force.
