More support is coming for front-line police officers.

The provincial government says 460 new police recruits have completed their basic training at the Ontario Police College.

The successful completion of basic constable training marks an important milestone on the path to becoming an officer.

During the 12-week program, recruits are equipped with the knowledge and practical skills needed to respond to evolving issues facing modern policing.

This includes learning how to prevent crime, assist victims, maintain public order and respond to emergencies.

Of the 460 recruits, the average age is 29 years old, 88% have completed post-secondary education and 40% speak an additional language besides English.

Officials say the recruits will complete their training with 29 municipal police services across the province, the Ontario Provincial Police, five First Nations communities and two other police service partners.

It’s not known how many will be allocated to our region.
