Thirty-seven new Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) officers are joining our communities in Central Region following completion of their training at the Ontario Police College in Aylmer, and the Ontario Provincial Police Academy in Orillia.
The 37 officers are part of Class 490 that officially graduated today.

These officers bring with them diverse life and work experiences that will greatly benefit their communities.
The new Provincial Constables have been deployed to the following detachments:
- Caledon – 7 officers
- City of Kawartha Lakes – 3 officers
- Collingwood – 3 officers
- Dufferin – 9 officers
- Haliburton Highlands – 4 officers

“Community policing is at the core of the OPP. Officers work and live in the communities they serve, and develop meaningful relationships with local residents and community partners. I am pleased to welcome these new recruits who will continue to enhance the safety of our communities in the years to come. Best of luck to our newest officers as they start their rewarding careers and serve with pride, professionalism and honour.”
– Chief Superintendent Dwight Peer, Central Region, Ontario Provincial Police
