Caledon OPP welcomes 

seven new officers

Last week, Caledon Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) has welcomed seven new officers to help us serve our community. The new recruits graduated on Oct. 1, after attending the Ontario Police College in Aylmer, Ontario, as well at the Ontario Provincial Police Academy in Orillia.

A career in policing is primarily about working with people to ensure public safety through crime prevention and law enforcement. Police work requires the building of relationships in the community, while preserving the peace, preventing crime, and assisting victims of crime. 

The new officers were selected based on their:

• Education

• Lifestyle/Life Experience

• Community Service

• Employment

• Leadership

• Driving

• Communication Skills

• Special Skills

• Motivation

• Fitness

The officers had gone through an extensive selection process and training, and are ready to fulfill their life-long dreams of being officers with the OPP.  “Our seven new officers bring many languages, cultures and life experiences to serve the Caledon community,” Inspector Mike Garant

If you are interested in giving back to your community, volunteering part-time with the Caledon Auxiliary Unit is a great way to make a difference. Visit www.opp.ca for details.
