But they’re also out to get women, too, as recruits this coming Tuesday at Georgian College.

Canada’s embittered federal police force is looking for Canadians interest in a career in law enforcement.

The RCMP is hiring!

But some women may be weary, given recent news about the treatment of female officers. It may be question to ask.

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police says in a release Friday that it offers “an exceptional career, letting you make a real difference in your community and your country.

“No other police force in Canada provides the levels of services and variety offered by the RCMP, as well as opportunities for continued learning and growth.”

They say the RCMP police officers wear their uniform with pride.  They wear it because it stands for justice, honour and protecting those in need.  The RCMP has been keeping communities safe since 1873.

“To do our job, we need police officers from all backgrounds who are physically fit, up for a challenge and ready to make a difference wherever they’re posted,” says the release.

Do you know how physically fit you must be to be a police officer?

Attend this Physical Abilities Requirement Evaluation (PARE) workshop and find out!  The PARE is a job-related physical ability test.  It is designed to simulate a critical incident where a police officer chases, controls, and apprehends a suspect.

Attendees will learn how to prepare for the PARE as well as have an opportunity to walk through the PARE course, try the push/pull machine, and carry the torso bag.

The workshop is on: Tuesday, June 27 at 1 p.m. at the Georgian College Athletic & Fitness Centre, 1 Georgian Dr., in Barrie.
