20th Anniversary/Recruiting Event – September 17, 2016
TORONTO, Sept. 6, 2016 /CNW/ - Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) police officers wear their uniform with pride. They wear it because it stands for justice, honour and protecting those in need. The RCMP has been keeping communities safe since 1873. To do our job, we need police officers from all backgrounds who are physically fit, up for a challenge and ready to make a difference wherever they're posted.
The RCMP opened its Toronto North Detachment in Newmarket 20 years ago. The grand opening was held on September 19, 1996 with Commissioner Phillip Murray officiating. To help commemorate the anniversary of this special occasion, "O" Division Recruiting will host a 20th Anniversary/Recruiting Event at the Toronto North Detachment, 345 Harry Walker Parkway South, Newmarket, Ontario on Saturday, September 17, from 10 AM to 2 PM.
This special event is designed to provide applicants with an opportunity to learn about a career in policing with the RCMP and explore some of the 150 different career specializations offered by the RCMP. Join us and speak one-on-one with recruiters. Police officers from various specialized units will be in attendance to showcase the unique policing opportunities available within Ontario. Attendees will also have a chance to learn about the RCMP fitness test, the Physical Abilities Requirement Evaluation (PARE). PARE demonstrations will take place throughout the day and attendees will have an opportunity to learn what it means to be Fit for Duty. Rocomo, a retired RCMP Musical Ride horse who currently works at the Youthdale Youth at Risk Riding Program, will be on location to help mark this momentous occasion. Light refreshments and anniversary cake will be served.
"To do our job, we need highly motivated team players who possess strong leadership abilities from a wide range of backgrounds. This event is open to anyone who would like to find out more about a career with the RCMP. A uniform with your name on it is waiting for you."
