Peterborough Police Hosting Inaugural “Women in Policing Symposium”

The Peterborough Police Service is pleased to announce it is hosting its first symposium for women interested in a career in policing.

The event on March 23, 2019 will invite women to participate in a number of activities meant to expose them to elements of the profession in an informal manner, increase their confidence in their suitability and capability to become an officer, and prepare them to be successful in a recruiting process.

“The Peterborough Police Services Board has made it a priority for the Service to better reflect our community.  Women in our Service share this goal and recognize their role in this initiative,” says Inspector Lynne Buehler, Peterborough Police Service.

“It is also important to profile the extraordinary accomplishments of the women of our Service.  By undertaking this venture, we hope women in the community will see what is possible for them.”

In order to provide a quality experience for attendees, the Committee will invite 40 applicants to attend the event.  The agenda includes:

  • Resume review
  • Mock interview
  • PREP (physical readiness evaluation for police) test exposure and practice
  • Use of force exposure and practice
  • Scenario work in partnership with an officer
  • Networking lunch with an officer
  • Panel Q&A

Fleming College is partnering in the event and is generously providing their facility.  They will provide childcare for those attendees who need it.  A complimentary light lunch will be included during which attendees will have the opportunity to have impromptu conversations with the officers.

Inspector Buehler notes this event is not geared toward women or students who have already made the choice to become a police officer and are already in the process. Instead, she says this event is for women who have an interest in policing, but have never applied or were unsuccessful in the recruiting process and given up. They may already be in other professions.

The free event takes place Saturday March 23, 2019 from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Fleming College’s Sutherland campus.

Applicants will be asked to fill out a short questionnaire. The information provided will be used to select attendees and inform future events and recruiting efforts.

Those who have been selected to participate in the event will be contacted via email by Friday March 8, 2019.
