“The community has needed a strengthened police presence for some time now, and we believe Constable Jesse’s regular patrols around the village will help resolve local security concerns.”
The village of Caronport has hired the special police Const. Randy Jesse – a former member of the Moose Jaw Police Department (MJPS) – will be the municipality’s new community safety officer.
Jesse has lived in the community for 11 years and recently retired from MJPS after a 34 year career with the organization. He has held various positions during his career, which the village says makes him a well-qualified candidate for this new role in the protection services.
In partnership with the Moose Jaw RCMP Detachment, Jesse’s role is expected to increase safety, security, education and law enforcement in the community, said Mayor Daniel Buck. His appointment by the Ministry of Corrections, Police and Public Safety empowers him to preserve the peace, prevent crime, enforce provincial traffic and all-terrain vehicle laws, and coordinate with the RCMP to police the community.
Jesse will also serve as a by-laws officer to help educate residents about municipal standards and ensure they are up to them.
“The community has needed a strengthened police presence for some time now, and we believe Constable Jesse’s regular patrols around the village will help resolve local security concerns,” Buck said.
The village is particularly concerned about traffic control since its streets also serve as sidewalks, while three schools also create heavy foot traffic, he continued. Jesse will work closely with the Moose Jaw RCMP to be aware of and respond quickly to any criminal activity in town.
In addition to law enforcement, Jesse will educate residents about safety, including helping children learn safe cycling habits and teaching families how to secure their homes and belongings, Buck said.
“Agent Jesse’s years of experience will be a great resource for families, businesses and schools in the community,” added the Mayor. “Agent Jesse will also be our administrative agent, with the aim of increasing the attractiveness of the community as we learn to respect the established rules so that we can live better together in community. “
