(ESSEX, ON) – The OPP in Essex County is extremely fortunate to have one of the best OPP Auxiliary Units in the entire province. They are now looking for new auxiliary members to join the team after a number of former members have moved on to other opportunities, including fulltime Provincial Constable positions locally and throughout the province.
What is an auxiliary officer?
Auxiliary members assist OPP officers with their duties including general patrol, assisting with community events, seat belt clinics, RIDE initiatives, safety displays, presentations, and ceremonial duties. Members perform many duties outdoors, often in unfavorable weather conditions.
Here in Essex County the OPP’s auxiliary complement consists of 40 members who dedicate in excess of 10,000 hours annually.
All new members attend one week of initial training at OPP headquarters in Orillia, followed by ongoing local training twice per month for 10 months of the year. There are several current members who have obtained between 10 and 20 years of service with the unit, proving that this is an enjoyable and rewarding experience.
