The Ontario Association of Chiefs of Police has launched a new Constable Selection System (OACP CSS). The new process was developed after extensive consultation and input from provincial and municipal police services across Ontario as well as numerous external professional advisory groups. It is designed to address barriers to potential recruits and be more accessible and affordable than the previous selection system since it offers on-line convenience to potential recruits while being sensitive to the needs of candidates in different parts of Ontario.
Individuals wishing to apply to many Ontario police services now have access to an on-line, three-phase constable selection process at a cost of $250.00:
The new OACP Certificate will continue to evolve with input from all police services. Meanwhile, our certificate support staff are working to address questions and inquiries from interested individuals. Please refer candidates to www.oacpcertificate.ca or Support@oacpcertificate.ca for more information.
The OACP is in the process of organizing a no cost one-day event to be held January 16th for all recruiters to assist them in understanding and implementing the new OACP Certificate process at their service.
Registration information will be sent out to all Chiefs soon.
