Want To Help Out The SJPD? Here Could Be Your Chance

Saint John's auxiliary police force will be growing in the coming years.

Currently, 20 volunteer members put in over 3,000 hours helping uniformed members with everything from special community events to crime prevention.

 Police Chief Bill Reid tells CHSJ News they always ask people why they want to volunteer with the police department--and while they get a variety of answers, it's also a plus to see people interested in the real life aspects of policing, and not just what they see on TV and in movies.

Reid says many of the people who start on the auxiliary force end up becoming full-fledged police officers. They'll be looking to expand the auxiliary force and train 10 new members by 2016.
