LONDON, Feb. 28, 2017 /CNW/ - The RCMP is hiring! Since 1974, women have made significant contributions as RCMP police officers in every part of Canada and around the world. Women provide a unique policing perspective and contribute to a balanced approach to resolving problems and developing relationships with the communities the RCMP serves. They have a positive impact on the community while enjoying vast opportunities for growth and development in dozens of specialized units.
When considering career choices or changes, women are faced with their own unique challenges and concerns. Some women may not have considered a career in policing as an option and may worry that they won't be able to meet the physical requirements. The RCMP recognizes these concerns and will be hosting a Women in Policing Panel that will be delivered by women, for women. At this event, we will provide information to dispel the myths and provide you with some tools and tips for success.
This will be an opportunity for potential female applicants to meet female RCMP police officers and find out about their personal experiences working for the RCMP. There will be a short presentation followed by a question and answer session.
The special presentation is on:
Friday, March 10 at 1 PM
RCMP London Headquarters
5th Floor, 130 Dufferin Avenue, London, ON
