Board chair Ron Dupuis urged them to remember how proud they felt being inducted to the force every time they put on their uniforms for the rest of their careers.
It's something Elsner tells full-time recruits when they join the force to remind them every time they go out why they became police officers – something that will help them when they have difficult days on the job.
The service's auxiliary are volunteers trained to help full-time officers with daily responsibilities.
They work as crowd control for special events, accompany officers on patrols, and attend emergency calls. In addition, the auxiliary help with a number of tasks in community mobilization initiatives and crime prevention programs.
The force including volunteer firefighters, students, teachers, etc., many of whom go on to become full-time officers.
