The Barrie Police Service will hold an information session in October for women interested in joining the force.
The service is recruiting police officers and civilian special constables. It invites women who are interested to attend the Women in Policing session Oct. 17 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Barrie Police Service training building, located at 79 Bell Farm Rd.
Attendees will be able to speak with officers about the recruitment process, what opportunities are available, and what it’s like to be a woman working in policing.
Anyone looking to be a sworn police officer will have the option of taking a practice beep test. Achieving a Level 7 in the beep test is a prerequisite for attending the Ontario Police College.
Those planning to attend the session are asked to RSVP to [email protected] with their name and contact information and indicate if they are interested in becoming a police officer or a special constable and if they want to take part in a practice beep test.
