The Durham Regional Police Service is currently carrying out its Youth in Policing Initiative, which provides selected high school students with an educational summer work experience.
The program gives students the opportunity to experience many different aspects of policing and community leadership, while gaining various skills and making a positive contribution to their community.
From August 9 to August 12, the Durham Regional Police and the Youth in Policing students will host a Junior Youth in Policing Leadership Camp at the Kids’ Safety Village in Whitby. The junior students, aged 10-13, will participate in various activities, while receiving positive mentorship by DRP’s Youth in Policing students. They will learn about policing and gained valuable leadership skills. Topics will include diversity, fire safety and information regarding various units within DRPS including Air1, K-9 and use of force options.
The students who attend this four-day camp will be awarded an official Durham Regional Police certificate recognizing their participation and involvement in the initiative.
