The berries on the hoist end are saskatoon berries, from which the city
gets its name. Plentiful throughout the praries (well, I can assume, I've
picked them myself in both Saskatchewan and Manitoba),
they were also well-known to the First Nations peoples as well.

Formed in 1903, the Saskatoon Police Service is a Canadian law enforcement
agency with both municipal and provincial jurisdiction, based in the city of
Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. The SPS operations in cooperation with the Royal
Canadian Mounted Police. In addition to law enforcement duties at home, members
of the SPS have deployed worldwide to help train law enforcement officers in
developing countries, such as Afghanistan and Kosovo.
The armorial bearings and flag of the Saskatoon Police Service were recorded in the Canadian Register of Arms in June 2007. Information regarding the flag can be found at http://reg.gg.ca/heraldry/pub-reg/project-pic.asp?lang=e&ProjectID=1169&ProjectElementID=4116. The flag is light blue with the SPS badge (as recorded in the Register) centered on the field. The flag is sometimes displayed with an alternating fringe of blue and gold.
