As part of its ongoing commitment to find new, innovative ways to recruit employees and volunteers, Halifax Regional Police is again hosting ‘Discover HRP,’ a week long program which will give participants a chance to experience what it’s like to be a police recruit.
For an entire week, they will have the opportunity to live the life of a police recruit, taking part in fitness drills, firearms exercises, mentoring sessions and other practical exercises.
The Discover HRP program targets individuals between the ages of 19 and 29-year-old who are interested in pursuing a career in policing with a focus on women as well as citizens from the racially visible community. Applicants must be a Canadian citizen or a permanent resident and have no criminal convictions for which a pardon has not been granted and no adult criminal charges pending.
Discover HRP will be held at Northbrook School in Dartmouth from 6 a.m.- 5 p.m. daily during the week of July 18-22. There is no cost to participate, however, registration is limited. Participants must be willing to commit to attend the full week.
Interested applicants who meet the criteria can visit halifax.ca/police/DiscoverHRP for more information or to apply on-line. Applications must be received by April 30, 2011.
