New Community Peace Officer Hits the Streets

What is the Role of a Peace Officer?

Our Peace Officer's duties centre around education and bylaw enforcement, they do not enforce criminal code violations. Criminal code violations include things such as theft, break and enter, domestic abuse, assault, and drug offences, among other more serious crimes such as homicide.

The Peace Officer is responsible for enforcing the County's Bylaws and Policies. Peace Officer's monitor traffic on all County roads, excluding provincial Highways 2 & 49, for offences such as drunk driving and speeding. They also patrol for safety violations by commercial vehicles, such as improperly or unsecured loads, and will often provide support to other departments in the completion of their duties around the County, such as accompanying staff on home visits.
