Victim Services


Moose Jaw and District Victim Services has been fully operational since 1994.

We are actively recruiting for additional volunteers to our program

The Victim Services program is a Police-based victim support service with a full-time Coordinator that recruits, trains and supervises community volunteers who, in turn, provide direct support to victims of crime and tragedy crime victims referred to the program by the Moose Jaw Police and Moose Jaw RCMP police officers. The community trained volunteers provide support to victims of crime and tragedy by phone or in person.

Volunteers are the backbone of the Victim Services program. The selection of qualified and motivated volunteers is necessary to provide the best service possible. Under the supervision of the Victim Services Coordinator, the volunteers provide direct assistance, referral information, and support to victims of crime.

Volunteer recruitment occurs on an ongoing basis. After an interview and selection, all volunteers will undergo a total of 40-45 hours of classroom training which is preparation for the duties they will be expected to perform. If you would like to volunteer, please contact the Victim Services Coordinator at (306) 694-7621 or e-mail: dblondeau@mjpolice.ca

Update

We are happy to report that after being a part of the Moose Jaw Police Service for the past year, Intervention K9-Kane has surpassed our expectations. Kane has without hesitation and in his own gentle way assisted countless victims by providing emotional support and comfort to those experiencing trauma, pain, grief, illness or injury.

Kane has been available almost daily to individuals within our police service and never differentiates or shies away from those wanting what has been referred to as “…a Kane pick me up then I’m good for the day fix…”

Kane accompanies the Victim Services Coordinator/Handler to educate others in the community about his role with Victim Services by attending presentations, meetings, conferences and numerous community functions/events. Kane’s demeanor and consistent displays of proper obedience along with his gentleness and trusting nature has put a smile on most people’s face.

Kane loves his job and he gets very excited when it is time to work. Kane is very comfortable in his role and very willing to do what he has been trained for on a consistent basis. In his down times and when it’s time to relax Kane loves playing with his fuzzy squeak toys.

If you are interested in keeping up with Kane’s many activities you can view his Facebook page “PADS Intervention K9 Kane”.
