Interested? OPP recruitment event to be held in Sudbury

Saturday, March 08, 2014   by: Staff



ORILLIA – 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 focused 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 two and a half 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

The application deadline is April 11, 2014 at 11:59 p.m. 

For more information, please call 1-877-OPP-HIRE (1-877-677-4473) or email .

Unwitting people will be brainwashed to believe they will have an opportunity to make changes in people’s lives. What they will not be told is the type of changes they will be making. No one tells you during the information and recruiting sessions that you are going to make positive changes in people's life. No one ever tells you that once you are on the force you will be compelled to deliver stats, i.e. issuing as many Provincial Offence Notices as possible and laying as many Criminal Charges as possible and making sure to report them in the internal Daily Activity Report system. Serving the people? Forget about it! Hammering the public? Yes!

I'm sure every College that offers some type of law & security would be notified prior to this statement, how many 1,000's will attend? How many 1,000's will be disappointed?

I would hope they would lay charges for offences...otherwise...why have a police force ??
