Summer 2016 Youth In Policing Summer Program.

Attached is a copy of the current job ad for you to distribute to your students. Students can find more information and the application by going online at www.torontopolice.on.ca/yipi.

Following is some general information about the program:

The Youth in Policing is a joint partnership between the Toronto Police Service, the Toronto Police Service Board and the Ministry of Children and Youth Services.  The program is a paid position and employs students between the ages of 15-18 years within priority identified neighbourhoods.

The youth work within various units and divisions.  While at work youth have the opportunity to see daily police operations from an internal perspective, interact with police officers on a personal level and gain hands on job experience.  Students are also taken on tours to various police facilities, namely the Marine Unit, Mounted Unit, The Police Dog Services etc.

There are three Youth in Policing Programs that run throughout the year; summer, fall and winter. The programs run as follows:


  • Summer Program – July to August
  • Fall Program – September to December
  • Winter Program – January to April

The Summer Program runs throughout the summer months during the day from Monday – Friday and students work a 35 hour week.  The Fall and Winter Programs are part-time after-school programs that include evenings and some weekend work and students work 6 hours per week.

Currently they are in their recruiting phase for the 2016 Summer YIPI Program and are providing brief presentations during high school assemblies and at various community programs.

Students will only be able to apply up to Friday, January 29, 2016.

June 7, 2016 – Cardwell Avenue

June 07, 2016

Mr. Karygiannis,

I saw your interview on CP24 this afternoon.  The integrity commissioner is wrong to believe that you intimidated residents during encounters.  Some people refuse to follow the rules of our Country and need to be reminded that laws/rules are for everyone and there are no exceptions.

Keep up the good work.

June 7, 2016 – Done nothing wrong

Thank you Jim for your news letter. At Tuesday’s council meeting, you issued an apology for violating the code of conduct.  I have read the report and in my opinion You have not done anything wrong.  It is the law and your responsibility to enforce it.  I know it is difficult in this multi-culture society to please everybody.  You have not done anything wrong.  I give you my support.
