On behalf of the No. 33 Division Community Response Unit, I would like to advertise this great opportunity for youth.
The Toronto Police Service is now accepting applications for the 2009 Youth in Policing Initiative and we need your help in spreading the word to all eligible students!
Every summer 100 youth are hired from Priority Neighbourhoods to work throughout the Toronto Police Service. They are placed in 45 locations, including all Divisions, and support units like the Marine Unit, the Mounted Unit, and the Forensics Identification Unit.
In addition to daily duties, they also have the opportunity to work at cultural events such as Caribana and Taste of the Danforth. All students are taken on a comprehensive tour in order to expose them to different areas of the Service including Police Dog Services, Communications (911 Call C entre), the Emergency Task Force, and the Police Museum.
All in all, students conclude their summer with a solid work experience, a better understanding of the Toronto Police Service, and friendships with other students and members of the Service that they'll take with them in their futures.
The Youth in Policing Initiative is a unique opportunity that is not to be missed. If you know or work with youth aged 14-17, who reside in one of the priority neighbourhoods, who don't have a criminal record, and who may be interested in working with the Toronto Police for the summer, please encourage them to apply.
