Media Release

Waterloo Region, Ontario – The Waterloo Regional Police Service is proud to welcome members of Recruit Class #102. The new officers will be sworn in on April 17, 2020. 

Twenty-one new Constables have recently completed their basic training at the Ontario Police College and will be officially sworn in and receive their police badges. 

“We are proud to welcome Class #102, who are starting their careers during an unprecedented time in our community,” said Bryan Larkin, Chief of Police. “Each of them brings a unique skill set and ability to our Service. Most importantly, they are ready to serve Waterloo Region, especially during this time of uncertainty, to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our vibrant community.”  

Prior to joining the police service, the new members studied in a variety of fields, including science, electronics, business and organization, kinesiology, mental health, and police foundations. The new officers also bring experience from former careers such as a correctional officer, licenced funeral director and embalmer, youth care worker and playing in the Ontario Hockey League. Many have given back to the community through volunteering with organizations like Big Brothers Big Sisters, The Knights of Columbus and Rescue Dogs Match. 

A ceremony to recognize their achievements will be held at a later date.
