The Peel Regional Police Auxiliary Program consists of 137 highly trained Auxiliary Officer volunteers who represent the diverse cultural backgrounds, careers and age of the residents in the Region of Peel.

An Auxiliary Officer’s role is to support police officers by volunteering their time participating in community events, the RIDE program, patrol escorts, emergency callouts and a variety of other events throughout Peel Region. Some Auxiliary Officers use the training and experience they have gained in the program to pursue a career in policing.
