    The Owen Sound Police Service has begun its recruiting campaign for its volunteer Auxiliary Policing Unit. The application process closes at 12:00 noon on Friday November 15, 2019 and successful candidates will begin their training in February 2020.  The Auxiliary Police Unit is a great opportunity for members of our community to participate in making a difference, and can be a great way for young adults to gain job and life experience that may assist in their future career goals. 

    If you have any questions about the Auxiliary Police Unit, please contact Sergeant Sullivan at (519) 376-1234 ext. 156 or or visit our website for further details.
