On Wednesday, December 5, 2018, at 6 p.m., please join Deputy Chief Peter Yuen, Toronto Police Services Board Chair Andy Pringle and Youth in Policing Initiative Acting Supervisor Struan Remedios in Theatres 1 and 2 at the Toronto Police College, 70 Birmingham Street as they congratulate 59 young people, from across the city, from our 2018 Youth in Policing Initiative Fall Program.

These students were assigned to various divisions, the Mounted Unit and Collision Reporting Centres gaining job experience and life skills through their work with the police officers and community members. They also had a chance to take part 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, including: Mount Olive-Silverstone-Jamestown, Thistletown-Beaumond Heighte, Elms-Old Rexdale, Victoria Village, Flemingdon Park, Thorncliffe Park, Regent Park, West Hill, Woburn, Eglinton East and Scarborough Village.
