Halifax Regional Police (HRP) is launching a recruitment campaign to find people who want to make a difference in our community by becoming a police officer.
We’re looking for team players who are motivated to make ongoing and meaningful contributions to the well-being and safety of our community. Through a competitive selection process, we’ll choose approximately 15 candidates who will enroll in the January 2016 Police Science Training Program at the Atlantic Police Academy in Slemon Park, Prince Edward Island. Successful candidates must be strong communicators and analytical thinkers who value diversity, provide the ultimate in customer service, possess a strong moral character and are highly motivated, team-oriented, committed and flexible.
After completing the 35-week program, we’ll make a decision on hiring each candidate based on their overall suitability, including their success in the Police Science Program, their performance during on-the-job training and their final interview with HRP. Once hired, the new officers will undergo HRP specific training before hitting the streets as patrol constables.
We strive to be an organization that is reflective of the community we serve and encourage anyone interested in becoming an HRP officer to attend one of three information sessions we’re holding in partnership with the Atlantic Police Academy:
- July 8 at 7 p.m. – 9 p.m. at the Black Cultural Centre
- July 9 at 3 p.m. – 5 p.m. at St. Andrew’s Community Centre
- July 9 at 6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. at the Halifax Central Library
Applications will be accepted from July 6 to midnight on August 7, 2015.
