Twenty-one new officers join OPP Central Region detachments

11 assigned to detachments in Simcoe County

from Ontario Provincial Police

Twenty-one new Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) officers have joined communities across Central Region after graduating from the Ontario Police College in Aylmer, Ontario, and attending the Ontario Provincial Police Academy in Orillia last month.

The officers received demanding training and skills needed to protect the communities they are sworn to serve. They bring diverse life and work experiences, professionalism and compassion that will greatly assist the officers with building community connections, and serving the public.

“Professionalism, fairness and respect are all integral components of policing that our new officers have already demonstrated throughout their training. The officers are eager to be joining their local communities to make a positive and tangible impact on community safety and well-being. On behalf of Central Region, I would like to welcome the officers to our police family and wish them a safe and positive career serving our communities with honour and pride!”

— Chief Superintendent Dwight Peer, Central Region, Ontario Provincial Police.

Central Region members of the OPP provide police services from 13 detachments across the Region. All of the detachments remain heavily engaged in strengthening partnerships with community groups and leaders.

The newest Provincial Constables have been deployed to the following OPP Central Region Detachments:

• Caledon (eight);
• Huronia West (six);
• Orillia (three);
• Southern Georgian Bay (two);
• City of Kawartha Lakes (one);
