The Barrie Police Services Board is seeking qualified volunteers for the Citizens on Patrol (COP) Program. A volunteer is anyone who, without compensation, performs a task at the direction of and on behalf of the Barrie Police Service.
This program is designed to enhance the Barrie Police Service’s objective to prevent crime within our City and provide an opportunity for approved individuals to participate in the observation and reporting of any criminal or potentially criminal activity to Barrie Police Service.
Volunteers, in liaison with Barrie Police Service, operate the COP program. Volunteers are vital to its success and provide patrols with the utmost priority placed on safety. The program is currently operating with a civilian patrol coordinator and a police liaison.
These volunteers become the ‘eyes and ears’ for Barrie Police while on patrol. This program does not promote, require, or ask for any involvement of members in the apprehension of criminals. The purpose is solely to observe and report – to be the ‘eyes and ears’ for Barrie Police Service.
For more information, or to submit an application, please see the complete posting on our Join our Team page. Application forms and additional information on the COP Program can be found on the COP page.
All interested candidates please submit a complete application package, including:
- Civilian Application Form
- Civilian Authorization for Release of Information Waiver
- Cover Letter
- Resume: outlining education, training, and experience to support the essential qualifications and knowledge, skills, and abilities of the position
prior to 3:00 p.m. on the closing date, Friday, December 30, 2022.
