Some of them may wear funny costumes, but special event and mascot volunteers play a serious role in connecting York Regional Police with the community it serves. These volunteers are often the first point of contact for members of the public at community events and initiatives. 
Special event volunteers assist at events held at the Community Safety Village of York Region, police districts and other community hubs throughout the region. Although no two events are identical, special event volunteers set up and take down materials at events, handle registration, work with police and auxiliary officers to provide crime prevention tips, administration duties, and various other community-oriented tasks.
York Regional Police has three mascots which attend community and school events throughout the Region. Morris the Moose, Bucky the Beaver and Bobby the Bear greet and entertain people of all ages. These furry friends are accompanied by a mascot escort wherever they go.
