Community Volunteer Program - Why We Volunteer

Following are some of the stories of our volunteers and why they choose to volunteer with the Community Volunteer Program:

Melissa Hillier"I have been a volunteer with the Winnipeg Police Service since May 2015. When I decided I wanted to volunteer some of my time back to the community there were many agencies I considered, but after attending the volunteer orientation with WPS I knew the Community Volunteer Program would be a good fit for me.

What really drew me to this program was seeing what a strong relationship that the Service has with the community. Volunteering for events such as Kids Fest and Cop Shop in addition to my regular shifts has been very rewarding on a personal level. Knowing that I am a part of building that relationship with the community to improve things for the better is a good feeling.

I really enjoy the diverse environment that this type of volunteering brings; no two days are ever the same. It is a positive environment to be in, and you can tell the staff enjoy their jobs and believe in what they are doing. Being a volunteer has also given me opportunities to participate in training courses with the City which have contributed to my professional growth.

I look forward to participating in more Community events and the unique experiences that these bring. "

Jeff Kull"I thoroughly enjoyed the time I spent as a Community Volunteer with the Winnipeg Police Service.

It allowed me to help out in our community, and I learned a lot about the service volunteering alongside members of the Winnipeg Police Service.

The knowledge and insight I gained about both the service and the public proved invaluable when I became a uniformed member of the Winnipeg Police."
