Canadian Excellence

Wilfrid Laurier University Special Constable Service is committed to:

  •  The prevention of crime, education, customer service, encouraging partnerships and the protection of rights which will enhance the quality of life for our students, faculty, staff and visitors. 
  • Using the Neighbourhood Policing Model to solve and prevent crime through education and the formation of partnerships to make Wilfrid Laurier University a safer place to learn, live and work.

All Special Constable Service staff must meet specific criteria as set out by the Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services and are sworn in by an Ontario Court of Justice as Special Constables. Special Constables are Peace Officers who are employed for the preservation and maintenance of the public peace. As such, we will enforce City of Brantford by-laws, provincial offences, federal statutes and university regulations when contravention is on, or in relation to, any university affiliated property. We may lay charges and/or make arrests under the same legal authority as police officers. We work in collaboration with the Brantford City Police Service. We will practice alternative measure through the Judicial Affairs Counsel and Residence Life here at Laurier Brantford.

Partnerships in Safety
The Special Constable Service, in partnership with Brantford Police Service and Residence Life Staff, are available 24 hours a day to respond to emergency situations. Please contact Special Constable Service at the emergency number for immediate response.
