Message From Chief of Police:
On behalf of the Officers and staff of the Prince Albert Police Service, I would like to welcome you to our website.
The Prince Albert Police Service was formed in 1886 and has grown into a modern and professional agency employing 104 sworn police officers and 26 civilian support staff. I am very proud to lead an agency that sets the standard for innovation, dedication and community service.
The City of Prince Albert is a hub and a destination point for many surrounding towns and First Nations. In order to provide service in this transient environment, we have an integrated relationship with the RCMP that allows us to offer a regional response to issues such as drug trafficking, property crime, and illegal gang and weapons activity. We also have strong and formal relationships with our partners in Health, Social Services, Education, the Metis Nation-Saskatchewan, Prince Albert Indian and Metis Friendship Centre, and the Prince Albert Grand Council. Partnering and mobilizing our community to enhance public safety continues to be a priority for us.
We are fortunate to police a community that is rich in history and culture. Our workforce is reflective of our community and we value the strength that diversity offers. Cultural programs and strong community connections are an integral part of our organization.
We are a busy and exciting service that values personal growth and provides opportunities to explore different sections and assignments. If you are interested in a career with us, volunteering, or have a general interest in our police service, please take the time to explore our website to learn more.
Thank you for your interest in the Prince Albert Police Service.
Chief of Police
