A career that I miss
Loved being a police officer for York Regional Police. many opportunities and paths you can follow. Room for promotion if its something you are interested in. All facilities have a gym for keeping in shape. Reired after 30 years due to an injury which was causing too much pain.

Possibly one of the best policing choices in Canada
York Regional Police was my premier choice of agencies to work for when I applied 25 years ago (retired now). In my former career as a television news journalist, I had the many opportunities to deal with provincial and municipal agencies from Burk’s Falls to Toronto, Brampton to Kingston. There was no doubt where I wanted to go. There was always an extra edge of pride and professionalism at YRP that others never quite seemed to match. This was borne out in my 22+ years on the force. The people I worked with were, almost without exception bright, dedicated, talented, diverse. The brother/sisterhood teamwork was almost always alive and well. Sure there were differences, but there was not one person I ever worked with who I felt bad about going with into the worst possible situation. And in York Region you will have the potential to be exposed to *every* policing situation from cows on the road in rural areas to daylight gang murders in restaurant parking lots And everything in between. The opportunities in YRP are virtually limitless; if it’s a part of policing, YRP has it from General Patrol duties to Criminal Investigations, School Resource Officers, Recruiting, Emergency Response Unit and Canine Units, Forensic Identification and my favourite, as I spent my last 5 years there, the Air Support Unit. Yes, there are pitfalls such as supervisors who should never have been promoted to their positions. There is politics, just like any large organization. If you learn to navigate those issues, the job on the ground is incredibly rewarding.

A good stable place to work with a completive work environment
The organization strives for excellence and in many cases succeeds. There are many avenues of policing where you can work so boredom should never become an issue. There are ample opportunities for advancement if you are a go getter.
