(SOUTH BRUCE, ON) - South Bruce Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) is pleased to introduce four new recruits that have recently been posted to serve in South Bruce.

As in the case with all new recruits, the newest members in South Bruce completed a week-long orientation at the Provincial Police Academy located at OPP General Headquarters (GHQ) in Orillia. Following orientation, the recruits reported to the Ontario Police College (OPC) in Aylmer for an additional 12 weeks of fundamental police training. After completing this training the recruits returned to the Provincial Police Academy for an additional 8 weeks of enhanced fitness, firearms, classroom training and realistic practical simulations designed to ensure the recruits are operationally ready to serve and protect.

"I am very pleased and excited to have the four new recruits join the South Bruce OPP. I feel very confident that each recruit will serve our community well in the years to come. The life experience, education, skills and abilities that each recruit brings with them will be an asset to our team." South Bruce OPP Detachment Commander, Inspector Krista Miller
