On Tuesday, July 4, 2017, the 11th Anniversary of the Toronto Police Service Youth in Policing Initiative (YIPI) Program was marked at the 2017 YIPI Program Launch at the Toronto Police College.

Assistant Deputy Minister, Ministry of Children and Youth Services Youth Justice Services Division David Mitchell, Chair of the Toronto Police Services Board Andrew Pringle, and Chief Mark Saunders welcomed 155 young people from across the city on being employed for eight weeks in the 2017 Summer Youth in Policing Initiative Program.

These students will be assigned to various units, Divisions and will be gaining job experiences and life skills through their work with the police officers and community members. They also had a chance to partake in several community events and training opportunities.

The Youth in Policing Initiative is part of the Government of Ontario’s Youth Opportunities Strategy. This Strategy is helping to build stronger communities by establishing and expanding community programs that help youth achieve a brighter future.

The young people in this program, aged 15-18, represented neighbourhoods throughout the city: Eglinton East-Kennedy Park; Scarborough Village; Kingston-Galloway; South Parkdale; Westminister-Branson; Steeles-L’Amoreux; Weston-Mt. Dennis; Lawrence Heights; Flemingdon Park-Victoria Village; Crescent Town; Malvern; Jane-Finch; Jamestown; Regent Park; and Dorset Park.
