Co-Operative Education Placements

In keeping with our core values advocating Community Partnerships and valuing Children and Youth the Waterloo Regional Police Service is pleased to offer a Co-Operative Education program for local high-school aged students.

The program is operated in partnership with the Waterloo Region District School Board the Waterloo Catholic District School Boards.

The intent of the program is to provide students with the opportunity to gain a greater understanding about the Waterloo Regional Police Service while establishing new working relationships and further developing a variety of skills through on-the-job experience.

Students wishing to participate can apply once a year and must complete a placement process.  Opportunities are available at:

  • Children's Safety Village
  • Records Branch
  • Human Resources Branch
  • Corporate Planning
  • Courts

Informaton sessions are held annually to provide students the opportunity to ask questions and help them prepare for the following school year.

The most recent information session was held on May 27, 2014 and also involved representatives from the City of Kitchener Fire Services.  Participants were able to tour the workplace facilities, learn about careers in policing and firefighting, learn about potential co-op placement offerings and receive important direction for the completion of the application forms.   

The information session was well received by the students and school staff, and to express their appreciation sent the following "cupcake thank you"!
