OPP Virtual Ride

Orillia, ON - The Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) invites you to experience "a day in the life of an OPP officer" on Friday, April 21st, as they host a Virtual Ride Along with Toronto's Highway Safety Division (HSD).

With hundreds of Provincial Constables to be hired over the coming years, this is an exclusive opportunity to find out what it's really like to patrol North America's busiest highway, the 401. Throughout the Virtual Ride Along, the OPP will also share tips on what it takes to be competitive for this exciting and challenging role.

The OPP's Uniform Recruitment Unit will be joining Provincial Constable Dolly Mangat. She is one of 770 uniformed members whose primary responsibilities include traffic enforcement and safety, and patrolling 139,000 kilometers of highway throughout Ontario.

In this dynamic role, officers quickly learn to "expect the unexpected." During the Virtual Ride Along, participants will be learn how OPP officers respond to calls for service, assisting Ontarians and visitors alike, as they travel throughout the Greater Toronto Area. Constable Mangat will also share tips on how she prepared for the OPP hiring process, including a challenging fitness regime and extensive community service.

"With millions of people and a billion dollars in trade traveling the 401 each day, HSD officers have a direct impact on the safety of Ontarians, as well as the health of our economy," says Inspector Sue Clark, Manager of the OPP Uniform Recruitment Unit. "For those interested in a career in policing, this is an excellent opportunity to see what this challenging and exciting role is really like."
