Auxiliary Police volunteers have been an essential part of policing in the city of Toronto, since its inception in 1957. At that time, administration and oversight of the Auxiliary Police function was incorporated into the new structure of the Toronto Police Force. Eventually, the role of the Auxiliary Police was formally recognized through the Police Services Act, related regulations and Service Governance.
For over 50 years, our auxiliary members have provided a valuable presence alongside the men and women of the Toronto Police Service.
Auxiliary officers are dedicated team players who all share a common goal to bridge the gaps and encourage partnerships between their communities and the service.
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.
Currently, over 340 Auxiliaries volunteer approximately 70,000 hours of their time annually to assist the Service’s community mobilization initiatives, crime prevention programs, special events, parades, searches for missing persons and emergency call outs.
Volunteering can be adventurous, invigorating and an enjoyable experience.
Help keep Toronto a vibrant and liveable city.
