The Regina Police Association is a labour organization representing both police officers and civilian members of the Regina Police Service.
Our primary functions are:
- Promoting the interests of our members through collective bargaining.
- Representing members on dispute and disciplinary issues.
- Lobbying to promote policing and public safety issues at municipal, provincial and federal levels
- Working with the Regina Police Service in achieving strategic planning goals, development of policies and procedures, and promoting a safe community for the citizens of Regina.
We represent approximately 560 police officers and civilian members and are affiliated with the Saskatchewan Federation of Police Officers and the Canadian Police Association.
On February 24, 1944 a vote was taken and it was unanimously agreed that the Regina Police officers organize themselves into a local police union. This was the beginning of the Regina City Policemen’s Association #155, under the National Union of Public Employees. Records indicate there were a total of 36 members.
In 1976, civilian members of the Regina Police Service joined the Association, and on April 15th, 1992 the Association was incorporated and changed its name to Regina Police Association Inc.
Today the Regina Police Association represents approximately 560 full-time and part-time uniform and civilian members of the Regina Police Service. They are your neighbours, your kids coaches, the police officer patrolling your community, the school resource officer who helps keeps your child’s school safe, and the voice on the other end of the phone during an emergency. Our members are hard working professionals dedicated to keeping the City of Regina a safe place to live, work and visit.
The development of the Regina Police Association is attributed to the contributions of Association representatives throughout the years. On behalf of our membership, we thank those representatives whose vision, dedication, and diligence has collectively enriched the lives and careers of our members.
