The Timmins Police Service welcomes Taylor Buczkowski to the ranks of platoon 4.

Taylor, a 22-year-old fluently bi-lingual Timmins native and graduate of École Secondaire Catholique Thériault is set to tackle the rigors of modern policing.

Taylor completed his post-secondary education at Laurentian University in Sudbury where he completed a Bachelor of Arts Degree with dual Majors in Law and Justice and Indigenous Studies.

He graduated with academic distinction in May of 2020 with a Magna Cum Laude Honours and with a Certificate of Bilingualism.

He recently returned from intensive training at the Ontario Police College in Aylmer, Ontario with a 97 % average.

His academic performance is certainly commendable but the “real learning” will come at the hands of his coach officer which has yet to be determined.

He decided to pursue a career with the Timmins Police Service as a way to hopefully better serve my community and create meaningful connections with those around him.

As a life-long resident of the City of Timmins, he is committed to ensuring that the beauty, diversity, and safety of his home town community remains intact.

He is a fierce and avid outdoorsman who enjoys exploring the wilderness in and around Timmins.

Policing runs in the family bloodline as both his mother and father have dedicated many years of faithful service to the Timmins Police Service.

His mother undertook many responsibilities as a Records clerk for over twenty years and his father is currently completing his 33rd year as a Constable with the Timmins Police Service.

Nobody’s perfect however as Taylor admits that he loves watching the Toronto Maple Leafs, especially during the abbreviated playoff season.

He is ready and able to make the standard and very tired Leaf fan pledge “this is a rebuilding year and there’s always next season”

The Timmins Police Service welcomes Taylor aboard and wishes him success in his chosen field of endeavor.
