After your application, including your Certificate of Results, and any applicable application forms are received by the Timmins Police Service, you may be called for an interview. The interview will take place with a panel of several officers.

Once you’ve successfully completed the interview portion, an in-depth background check and a psychological evaluation will be completed. If all components are successfully completed, the candidate will receive an offer of employment.

Before beginning work as a Timmins Police Officer, cadets will attend the Ontario Police College for 12 weeks of training. Once back in Timmins, newly appointed constables will then be placed with a Coach Officer for several weeks in order to gain experience and additional training.
