On Saturday, April 26, the Toronto Police Service Employment Unit, facilitated an Aboriginal General Information and Physical Readiness Evaluation for Policing (PREP) Session, at the Toronto Police College.

The Employment Unit was aptly assisted in this endeavour by officers from the Toronto Police Service Aboriginal Peacekeeping Unit as well as Toronto Police Service Auxiliary.

The attendees not only reflected the Aboriginal Community but other ethnicities as well. It was pleasing to see that the participants were vibrant and engaged the officers in conversations.

Potential candidates had an opportunity to have their questions about uniform and civilian positions answered as well as experience first-hand the physical requirement that one must undertake in order to put themselves in contention for a uniform position.

An overwhelming majority of the potential candidates attempted the Physical Readiness Evaluation for Policing test and most fared very well, especially being their first attempt at it.

Ann Marie Henry, Manager of the Employment Unit said: “I am very pleased that as an organization we acknowledge the need to engage the communities we serve.  We, the Employment Unit host PREP and GIS sessions for community groups so that we have the opportunity to engage and communicate.  Everyone wins.”

The Toronto Police Service; as world leaders in policing innovation, continually strives to reflect inclusivity  as it pertains to the communities it services and as such is constantly presenting itself to various communities as a viable choice of employment. 

On Saturday, May 24, the Toronto Police Service will again embark on another recruitment venture. It will be conducting a South Asian General Information and PREP Session at the Toronto Police College, located at 70 Birmingham Street, from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. 

If you are curious about a career in policing, come on out and bring a friend, we will ensure that your curiosity will be satisfied.
