The Ontario Provincial Police in Hawkesbury and Stormont, Dundas, and Glengarry are looking for summer students to fill two full-time “Marine Assistant” positions for the 2017 boating season. 

The purpose of the program is to provide students an opportunity to gain experience within the field of law enforcement through hands-on experience. The student will learn marine safety and related legislation, boat maintenance, prepare reports and interact with the public as a representative of the OPP.  Marine students work alongside a qualified OPP marine operator on a police vessel, conducting marine checks on recreational boaters for safety equipment usage, safe vessel operations and enforcement of statute law.  This includes the Canada Shipping Act 2001, the Liquor Licence Act and Criminal Code.

Applicants must:

•be able to pass an OPP background security investigation,
•be at least 18 years of age,
•have a valid Ontario G2 (or higher) Driver’s Licence or equivalent,
•have a valid and current Pleasure Craft Operator Card,
•have valid and current CPR and First Aid certification,
•and be able to swim 300 metres without stopping.

These summer jobs require a “student” status, defined as someone enrolled in a secondary or post-secondary institution (currently or for the fall semester) or who has graduated within the past six months.

Applications must be submitted electronically no later than February 14, 2017.
