WEYBURN – May 9-15, 2021 is National Police Week, a time to encourage awareness and new connections between police and the communities they serve. The theme for 2021 is “Working together to keep our communities safe” and the Weyburn Police Service is celebrating its role and pride in being an important public safety partner.
Public safety involves a collaborative effort within police agencies and between police services, first responders, as well as social and community organizations. As frontline first responders, police officers are often the gateway to many community supports. The success of police services in Canada today depends on the ability of police to create, maintain, and strengthen relationships with various community partners and stakeholders.
“Our men and women are dependent on the trust, accountability and support of the community,” said Weyburn Police Chief Jamie Blunden. “We are listening and continue to work with Weyburn residents, the local government and community partners to find opportunities and solutions that work for our community.”
Because diversity and inclusion make communities stronger, the Weyburn Police Service is committed to enhancing its recruitment, hiring and promotion processes to increase the quality of recruits and accelerate the diversification of the organization to be more representative of and be more responsive to the Weyburn community.
