If you’ve ever thought about a career in policing, you’ll want to attend tonight’s recruiting information sessions in Bracebridge. The OPP is holding two sessions – they happen at the District building located at 70 Pine Street. The first one runs from 1 to 3:30 pm and is reserved for emergency service providers. The second is open to the general public and runs from 5:30 to 8pm at the same location. You don’t have to register for the sessions.

More from the OPP’s Sergeant Cindy Collins on what they are looking for in a competitive candidate….
