The Govern­ment of Saskatchewan an­nounced that it has funded the Moose Jaw Po­lice Ser­vice to the tune of $330,000 for three ex­ist­ing po­si­tions in 2017-2018. “Our govern­ment is fo­cused on com­mu­nity safety,” Moose Jaw Wakamow MLA Greg Lawrence said on be­half of Jus­tice Min­is­ter and At­tor­ney Gen­eral Don Mor­gan in a re­lease is­sued Thurs­day. “The Mu­nic­i­pal Po­lice Grants pro­vide ad­di­tional support to the ded­i­cated mem­bers of the Moose Jaw Po­lice Ser­vice.” The shift to­wards a new Pro­tec­tion and Re­sponse Team (PRT) model has been in the news for sev­eral months, but this is the first time a dol­lar-fig­ure has been an­nounced. “This grant pro­vides the Moose Jaw Po­lice Ser­vice with three of­fi­cers whose work is fo­cused on shared polic­ing pri­or­i­ties,” MJPS Chief Rick Bourassa said in the same re­lease. “Through this pro­gram, com­mu­nity safety and well­be­ing are en­hanced in our com­mu­nity and sur­round­ing area.”
