WOODBRIDGE, ON, Jan. 9 /CNW/ - Aspiring Mounties and the media are
invited to come and learn more about what it takes to be part of Canada's
national police force.
The career presentation will feature a recent graduate of the RCMP
Training Academy in Regina, who will be on site to share his experiences of
Depot. The 26-year-old native of Toronto graduated just over a month ago and
was posted in a detachment near his hometown.
Although the new officer has a college diploma in police foundations and
attended university to study criminology, these aren't pre-requisites to join
the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.
"Many potential applicants have these misconceptions," explains Sgt. John
Nuvoloni, in charge of recruiting in Ontario. "College or university training
isn't necessary, although it is certainly beneficial. However, when it comes
to education, the applicant simply requires a Grade 12 high school diploma to
join the RCMP."
The public can learn more about the RCMP by calling 1-877-888-0433 to
register for the career presentation taking place on:
Monday, January 14, 2008, 1:30 pm
Woodbridge Library, 150 Woodbridge Avenue,
