The Regina Police Service Community Cadet Corps is a cooperative initiative involving the Regina Police Service, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, and the Wicihitowan Foundation. The focus of the CCC is on building future community leaders through developing and enhancing leadership, self-discipline, respect in youth, and the encouragement to stay in school. The program is facilitated by Cst. Dale McArthur of the Regina Police Service who engages young male and female youth aged 11-16 in the program. The discipline and goal setting they learn at school is reinforced through the activities at the Cadet Corps. CCC functions in a military setting where drill is a strong component and is coupled with positive discussions, sports and recreational activities allow for fun, healthy competition, teamwork, values, and common goal setting.
Cadet discussions include:
Code conduct understanding
Positive life choices
Regina Community Cadet Corps meets every Monday after school (3:30pm – 5pm) at Thomson School. The program runs in two semesters; Semester “A” runs from October to mid-February, and Semester “B” runs from mid-February to mid-June.
The Regina Community Cadet Corps is Saskatchewan’s first urban-based program, developed in partnership with the Community Cadet Corps program of the RCMP.
