Help! no idea how to get started :(

Postby sherii » Thu Sep 24, 2015 10:24 am

Hi everyone! I am new here and this is my first post...
For a while now I have been thinking about switching careers and going into policing but, to be quiet honest I have no idea where to get started and it’s a bit overwhelming. I have gone on the ATS website and noticed that the criteria for the PREP is changing. I am sure this has been asked a million times before but... how do I get started? how do I train? Is there anyone who has gone through the process interested in mentoring?

Any advice would be appreciated

There are so many programs online that you can get started with. Even reading up helps you out a lot. What particular reason do you have for changing careers?

Your best path is to attend an information session from your local police service.
Most larger services around Ontario offer these sessions to get you started.
Good luck.
