Peel board secondary school students attend Peel Regional Police Student Career Day

Students enrolled in the Justice, Community Safety and Emergency Services Specialist High School Major programs at Harold M. Brathwaite Secondary School will attend the Peel Regional Police Student Career Day at the Emil Kolb Centre for Police Excellence on Nov. 24. Following a recruitment presentation in the morning, students will attend workshops where they will have the opportunity to dust and lift finger prints, participate in training techniques and scenarios provided by instructors and learn about traffic safety.

“We see this as a great opportunity for some of the best students in the region to gain insight into a career in policing. We hope this day will produce excellent future candidates for Peel Regional Police,” says Peel Regional Police Inspector Rodrigues.

“This is an exciting career exploration event, designed by Peel Police officers to support Peel students in determining their career pathways,” says Patricia Rossall, superintendent, alternative programs at the board. “The Peel Regional Police will work with high school students to provide a unique and authentic experience, and give them a sense of what a day-in-the-life of a police officer is like.”

Students will participate in interactive workshops with officers from Traffic Services, Tactical and Explosives Disposal Units, Use of Force Bureau and Forensic Identification. They will have the opportunity to learn the roles of a police officer and take part in hands-on activities. Students will receive a certificate of participation at the end of the day. The event will run from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Nov. 24.

The Emil Kolb Centre for Police Excellence is located at 180 Derry Rd. East in Mississauga.
