Blue - Barrie Police Mascot

Community Service Unit The Barrie Police Service welcomed the arrival of their first mascot in the spring of 2012. Thanks to help from the community, the name, Blue, was given to the German Shepherd Mascot. Blue enjoys attending various community service events throughout the year and is loved by young and old.


Schools Unit

The City of Barrie presently has 43 Elementary Schools and 10 Secondary Schools. Educational awareness and safety programs are taught by officers in elementary, high school, college and adult learning centres. Public, separate and private school students are given accurate and up to date information providing the basis for informed personal choices. The schools unit operates such programs as V.I.P. (Values, Influences and Peers).

The Schools Unit also employs school liaison officers who attend at Elementary and Secondary Schools, to provide law enforcement when required, address school and/or student issues, participate as a resource person in classroom discussions, assist with the Safe Schools Act and provide guidance and direction to students, parents and teachers. These Officers provide the opportunity for students to form a better understanding of the role of a police officer in the community and the individual citizen's responsibility to the community, the law and enforcement of the law.


Crime Prevention

Officers provide knowledgeable information for commercial and residential security issues through presentations in the community.

Citizens On Patrol, Neighbourhood Watch, and Parks Ambassador are volunteer programs that partner with the Barrie Police Service providing valuable ears and eyes throughout the city.

If you wish to join any of the above programs, or have any questions please contact Constable Janet Schefter at (705) 725-7025 Ext.2925 or
