DRPS is now accepting applications for the 2018-2019 Youth in Policing Afterschool program. The 14-week program operates in collaboration with the Ministry of Children and Youth Services. DRPS will engage youth ages 15-18 residing in Durham Region, in positive, productive activities in a safe and healthy environment.

This is a paid student position involving nine hours per week beginning November, 2018, through to March 2019. The goal of the program is to inspire young people to look at the many different aspects of policing and to empower students to become ambassadors for the Durham Regional Police Service and their community.

As ambassadors, the students will work to improve police and community relations. Successful students will be working closely with members of the police service learning leadership, team building and communication skills.
