On Wednesday, December 20, 2017, at 6 p.m., please join His Worship Mayor of Toronto Mayor John Tory, Youth in Policing Program Supervisor Nicole Norton, Board Member of the Toronto Police Services Board Ken Jeffers, and Chief of the Toronto Police Service Chief Mark Saunders, in Theatres 1 and 2 at the Toronto Police College, 70 Birmingham Street, as they congratulate 63 young people from across the city on graduating from our 2017 Youth in Policing Initiative Fall Program.

These students were assigned to various divisions and the Mounted Unit and gained job experiences and life skills through their work with the police officers and community members. They also had a chance to partake in several crime prevention initiatives, community events and training opportunities.

The Youth in Policing Initiative is part of the Government of Ontario’s Youth Opportunities Strategy. This Strategy is helping to build stronger communities by establishing and expanding community programs that help youth achieve a brighter future.

The young people in this program, aged 15-18, represented neighbourhoods throughout the city: Mount Olive-Silverstone-Jamestown, Thistletown-Beaumond Heighte, Elms-Old Rexdale, Victoria Village, Flemingdon Park, Thorncliffe Park, Regent Parks, West Hill, Woburn, Eglington East and Scarborough Village.
