The basic requirements for auxiliary positions, says Insp. Darryl Brown, are as follows: at least age 19, a Canadian citizen or permanent resident and no criminal record.

Standard first aid and CPR course is required, along with an interview, background investigation and psychological testing. Applicants will also be required to successfully complete all training as required by the Kentville
