A brief informal badge presentation ceremony took place yesterday morning in the training room at the Timmins Police Service.
The intensive week-long training sessions that these young officers are attending was broken up, briefly, for the purposes of having their badges presented to them by the Senior Administration here at TPS.
By way of introduction, Constable Christopher BARKEL is a 29 year old resident of Timmins who attended TH and VS and pursued his post-secondary education at Northern College.
He is a Leaf fan but has no delusions about how fierce Tampa Bay is this year. He will be coached by Const. Jeff DelGuidice and is eager to take on the rigors of policing while focusing on the well being of his community.
As well, Constable Rylan BLAIN is a welcome addition as a 27 year old resident of Timmins who attended O’Gorman and pursued his post-secondary education at Niagara College in the field of Fitness and Health Promotion.
He has high hopes for the Bruins this year. He will be coached by Const. Trevor Southcott but we all have our crosses to bear. His older brother is Justin BLAIN of the Drug Enforcement Section.
Rylan is interested in any policing programs focused on high schools and the well being of area youth.
Lastly, the Timmins Police Service welcomes Constable Jonathan GOULET, who is a 30 year old resident of Timmins who attended TH and VS and pursued his post-secondary education at Northern College and graduated with a Police Foundations diploma.
He has taken a serious look at all teams heading into the playoffs and can’t deny how strong the Lighting is this year.
He will be coached by Const. Brennan Campbell and is eager to learn from a seasoned veteran and apply his recent training proficiently.
Please welcome these new officers to the Timmins Police team. They are eager to learn and to serve their community.
