Constable JK Gill

JK Gill

Pride.

Respect.

Integrity.

These are three traits Constable JK Gill learned while watching his father serve as a police officer for 31 years.

It’s also what made Constable Gill decide to follow in his father’s footsteps.

“He had the strongest influence on me wanting to join this profession,” says Constable Gill, who is currently serving in the Equity, Inclusion, and Diversity unit. “I have early memories of my father coming into my class and doing presentations wearing his full uniform. This couldn’t have made me feel more proud.”

Constable Gill grew up in Brampton, Ontario with his mother, father, brother and grandmother. As a child, he displayed a great talent for hockey and was drafted to play for the Sudbury Wolves in the Ontario Hockey League. He also played for York University’s hockey team.

But it was watching his father serve the Brampton community as a member of the Peel Regional Police Service that had the greatest impact on him.

“I knew I wanted to help the defenseless and arrest those who prey on the vulnerable,” he said. “I became a police officer to help our new folks in Canada, help bridge the gap between all the intersectional communities and police through essential partnerships.”

So why choose WRPS?

The answer, he says, is simple.

“It’s a world class organization,” he says. “The Service has a variety of different departments where one could work. The Region’s diverse population is growing exponentially, which was also attractive for me. Before applying to the Service, I had the opportunity to speak and interact with several officers and go on a ride along where I experienced a day in the life of a WRPS officer. My experiences were all positive. All the members who I interacted with were very friendly and I could clearly see this Service had the team environment that I wanted to be a part of.”
