Huron County OPP is pleased to introduce four new recruits that have been recently posted to serve in the area.
After an introductory tour and training day at the OPP West Region Headquarters (RHQ) on February 8th, Huron's recruits will now have regular patrols with their assigned coach officers.
The new members (as with all new recruits) completed a week-long orientation at the Provincial Police Academy located 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 that training the recruits returned to the Provincial Police Academy for an additional eight weeks of enhanced fitness, firearms, classroom training and realistic practical simulations.
Congratulations and welcome to the community Provincial Constables Ali Chouman, Mike Dirkson, Scott Mosey and Mark Kirkconnell.
