Woodstock Police Force is proud to protect and serve our community. We understand the importance of visibility, and we strive to be proactive in our approach to policing.

One of our proactive policing measures is our Community Resource Officer, Cst. Shaun Kimball. He is involved with many community activities, from information sessions about common concerns such as fraud prevention, winter driving, drugs, and internet safety, to working closely with our local Special Olympians, planning and organizing barbecues and sporting events, such as hockey and baseball tournaments (Special Olympians vs. Police).

In this role, Cst. Kimball also acts as our School Resource Officer, which includes the following duties:

  • Developing positive attitudes toward police officers and developing positive relationships between youth and the police;
  • Providing administrators and teachers with a resource in the areas of law and police work in the community;
  • Providing information to students on the law, the work of the police, and legal consequences;
  • Providing individual counselling and assistance to students relative to the law;
  • Gathering information on youth activities in schools and the community;
  • Reducing crime on school property and in the community, now and in the future;
  • Helping to create a safe school environment;
  • First contact person for all school related criminal matters.

Cst. Kimball also acts as our liaison for partnerships with the Multicultural Association with Carleton County (MACC), Planet Youth, Party Program at WHS, and is the Big Brothers and Big Sisters School Mentor.

Woodstock Police Force will continue to build and maintain healthy relationships through partnerships with schools, daycares, local businesses and institutions as well as the residents of the Town of Woodstock, and those who work, shop, and visit the area.

If you see any of our officers out on patrol or at special events, please say hello! And, if you are interested in having an officer make a community appearance, please call us at (506) 325-4601 or e-mail us at wpfadmin@nbpolice.ca with the date and details of the event, and we will be happy to try and accommodate.
