About me

I was born/grew up in: Toronto

I now live in: Greater Toronto area

I completed my training/education at: I did lots of volunteer hours at various locations prior to joining the police service. I do on the job training as required.

What I do at work

The ongoing training and various things we are tasked with from time to time, make the career extremely fulfilling. Every day we arrive at work, we don’t know what you’re going to be tasked with. The challenge of our work and being able to assist the public, or just being a support unit for other police officers in other Units make the job rewarding. I think the career as a police officer can take you in many different directions depending on your area of interest. From first responder, to scenes of crime officers, to police dog services to horses, to Marine Unit, we cover a wide variety of opportunities. It’s the challenge of the opportunity that makes it rewarding and fulfilling.

My career path is

As an elementary school student, I always wanted to pursue Law Enforcement. I decided to work for the summer and eventually my career ended up taking me driving tractor trailers across country. Eventually I decided to apply for the police services and did the required testing. My first attempt, I was unsuccessful and had to wait one year to re-apply. The second time I was successful and was hired by the Toronto Police in 2000. After I had 10 years in, I applied to the Marine Unit.

I am motivated by

I like the fact that no two days are alike and that everyday has its own challenge. I’m proud of the fact that my work helps my fellow officers and the community at large.
