The video, produced by Aspen Films in Prince Albert highlights various areas of the police service, including Patrol, Criminal Investigations, Forensic Identification, SWAT, Traffic, Community Policing, and Canine.
Parts of the video were filmed earlier this year and followed all current Public Health orders around masking and distancing. Also included in the video are scenes from past events, before the COVID-19 pandemic, including the Second Feast and Round Dance in October 2019 and the Heart of the Youth Powwow from 2019.
The Prince Albert Police Service currently employs 100 sworn members and offers a competitive selection process. Candidates interested in applying to the police service must be at least age 18 or over and have their Grade 12 diploma. Some post-secondary education is an asset. Candidates must also have a good command of the English language, a clean driving record and clear criminal record.
The police service is especially interested in applicants who are active in their community and participate in volunteer activities, maintain a regular fitness program, and have good interpersonal and communication skills. The application process includes a written aptitude test (SIGMA), a physical test (POPAT), written disclosure forms, polygraph testing, and interviews with the police recruiting committee and senior members of administration.
The Prince Albert Police Service is a diverse police service and represents one of the largest Indigenous police agencies in the country, with approximately 30 per cent of current members self-identifying as Indigenous.
