OPP News Release
The Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) is hosting OPPBound 2014 in the City of Orillia from July 5-7, 2014.
This year’s recruitment initiative will be focussed on women and men who are current or past members of the Canadian Military, Regular or Reserve, and who are interested in exploring a career in policing.
Fifty (50) applicants will be selected to spend 2 ½ days with “Ontario’s Finest” where they will learn about the history and traditions of the OPP.
OPPBound will include presentations and mentoring sessions with key OPP women and men, both uniform and civilian, who will share their experiences, answer questions and describe their exciting careers.
Candidates will also have the opportunity to live the life of an OPP recruit, learn about the recruitment process and participate in practical exercises and physical training.
“The OPP is now a partner agency with Canada Company and the Military Employment Transition Program,” said Inspector Dave Quigley, Manager, Career Development Bureau.
“The OPP benefits from hiring former military members as many of the qualities that make a good soldier are qualities that make a great, professional police officer.”
Women and men who are interested in taking advantage of this opportunity may complete an on-line application form located at www.opp.ca .
The application deadline is April 11, 2014 at 11:59pm.
