On Wednesday, April 27, 2016, at 6 p.m. please join MPP (Etobicoke-Lakeshore) Peter Milczyn, Toronto Police Services Board Member Ken Jeffers, and A/Chief of Police Richard Stubbings in Theatres 1 and 2 at the Toronto Police College, 70 Birmingham Street, as they congratulate 62 young people from across the city on graduating from our 17-week 2016 Youth in Policing Initiative Winter Program.

These students were assigned to various Divisions and the Mounted Unit and gained job experiences and life skills through their work with the police officers and community members. They also had a chance to partake in several crime-prevention initiatives, community events and training opportunities.

The Youth in Policing Initiative is part of the Government of Ontario’s Youth Opportunities Strategy. This Strategy is helping to build stronger communities by establishing and expanding community programs that help youth achieve a brighter future.

The young people in this program, aged 15-18, represented neighbourhoods throughout the city: Eglinton East-Kennedy Park, Scarborough Village, Kingston-Galloway, South Parkdale, Westminister-Branson, Steeles-L’Amoreux, Weston-Mt. Dennis, Lawrence Heights, Flemingdon Park-Victoria Village, Crescent Town, Malvern; Jane-Finch, Jamestown, Regent Park, and Dorset Park.
