Provincial Protective Services Branch Launches: Saskatchewan
Apr 04, 2022
The Provincial Protective Services Branch unites conservation, highway patrol, Safer Communities and Neighbourhoods Officers, prisoner transport and court security deputy sheriffs, and Wascana Park community safety officers under a single organizational structure. Including support and administrative staff, the new branch will consist of approximately 450 employees.
Government does not expect service delivery by any of the agencies that make up the Provincial Protective Services Branch to be affected. There are no immediate changes planned to the insignias, logos, or uniforms used by the various enforcement agencies.
Further work will take place throughout 2022 and 2023 to enhance services and ensure a consistent, collaborative approach to public safety incidents in Saskatchewan.
The PPS Branch supports Saskatchewan's Growth Plan goal of building safer communities by ensuring the protection of people, natural resources and infrastructure, allowing policing resources to focus on protecting Saskatchewan communities.
If and how Saskatchewan Highway Patrol will be impacted by this move is undetermined, however, Government does not expect service delivery by any of the agencies that make up the Provincial Protective Services Branch to be affected.
