After a six-month training program, 14 citizens have officially joined the Durham Regional Police Service’s Auxiliary Unit at a graduation ceremony held at Durham College on Jan. 22.
The new Auxiliary officers were inspected by Durham Regional Police Chief Mike Ewles, Vice Chair Bruce Boyle, Inspector Eva Reti, Auxiliary Inspector Louise Elborn and Cobourg Police Chief Paul Sweet as our officers were joined by four new Auxiliary officers for the Cobourg Police Service, the first for their service.
The class valedictorian was Aux/Cst. Michele Wynn and the recipient of the Bob Russell Outstanding Recruit Award went to Aux/Cst. Steve Wekarchuk.
Various auxiliary officers from the Ontario Provincial Police, Toronto Police, Hamilton Police, Waterloo Regional Police, York Regional Police and Halton Regional Police were all on hand to help welcome our newest members.
The Durham Regional Police would like to congratulate all of the new Auxiliary members and wish them the best in their new endeavour.
