“On May 11, 2022, officers were conducting a RIDE (Reduce Impaired Driving Everywhere) spot check in the area of Innis Lake Road and Healey Road,” say Police. “At approximately 12:30 a.m., a vehicle entered the area and was met by officers. Since it was suspected that the driver's abilities were impaired, a demand for a breath sample into an Approved Roadside Screening Device was made. As a result, the driver was arrested for impaired operation and taken to a nearby OPP detachment where further breath tests were conducted.”

The charge has not been proven.

“As part of our commitment to taking alcohol/drugs-impaired drivers off our roads, Caledon OPP would like to remind motorists that RIDE spot checks are conducted all year round.

OPP encourages people to step up during Police Week

Are you passionate about making a difference and helping build safer communities within Ontario? During this year's Police Week, the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) is urging candidates who are dedicated to upholding the law and serving their communities to consider this challenging and rewarding career path.

“With hundreds of members eligible for retirement over the next few years, there has never been a better time to apply to the OPP,” say Police. “Whether you are interested in becoming a police officer, auxiliary member (volunteer) or working in a civilian role, the OPP has a job opportunity for you.”

Uniform Officers

“Uniform officers are trusted and relied upon to assist members of the public in cases of emergencies, day or night. During an officer's career, there are many opportunities to experience different specialized policing roles including technical collision investigator, scenes of crime officer and mental health crisis response team member, to name a few.”

Civilians

“Civilians are non-uniform members who provide critical support to the communities we serve. There are hundreds of civilian careers to choose from, ranging from positions in Civilian Data Entry (CDE) to roles within the Provincial Communications Centres (PCCs) as well as administrative, specialized and managerial positions.”

Special Constables

“Special constables are civilian members who have been given limited peace officer or police officer powers by the Commissioner for a specific job or task. Special constables have a wide array of roles within the OPP.”

Auxiliary Members

“Auxiliary members are dedicated volunteers who are trained to assist with frontline policing operations to ensure the safety of our communities. Volunteering part-time with the OPP Auxiliary Program is a great way to make a difference in your community.”
