Upon being hired by the Toronto Police Service, every new recruit will begin their career as a Cadet-In-Training and will proceed with their formal training as follows:
- 2 weeks of orientation at the Toronto Police College,
- 12 weeks at the Ontario Police College in Aylmer, Ontario (Monday to Friday only),
- 6 weeks of further training at the Toronto Police College.
Courses covered during the 20 week training program will include defensive tactics, driving, firearms, neighbourhood policing and investigative training.
Once a cadet successfully completes their prescribed training at both colleges, a graduation ceremony will be held in which the cadet receives their badge and formal assignment. It is at this point, that the officer also gets sworn in and reclassified as a 4th class constable.
The fees for the Ontario Police College Recruit Training are $7,500.
Recruits of the Toronto Police Service have two payment options:
- One time payment of $7,500,
- The Police Credit Union offers a cadet loan at our lower preferred rates. For additional information check out our website at www.tpcu.on.ca.
