The Adult & Youth Volunteer Program is a Toronto Police Service initiative designed to build a working relationship between the public and the police. We aim to attract volunteers who are motivated to work actively within their community and represent the Toronto police in both a pleasant and professional manner. Entry into this program is very competitive and it attracts a large amount of applicants each year. The Adult and Youth Volunteer Program (A.Y.V.P.) assigns volunteers to work alongside the Community Safety Response Unit officers at their local police station.

Mandatory Requirements:

  • Be at least 14 years of age
  • Have no criminal charges pending and not have been convicted of a criminal offence for which a pardon has not been granted
  • Be a Canadian citizen or permanent resident

Duties of an Adult and Youth Volunteer

Some areas where volunteers are utilized are:

  • Assisting with Community Barbeques and Divisional Open House events

  • Assisting with large-scale police events
  • Conducting child car seat installation clinics
