YIPI - Youth in Policing Initiative

By: Dan Age

For the past three years Chatham-Kent Police Service has partnered with the Ministry of Children and Youth Services - Youth Justice Services Division to offer an opportunity for youth in our community to develop skills relevant to a career in policing. The program  lasts eight weeks and is a great summer job. This year the Chatham-Kent Police Service is proud to announce this year’s two Youth in Policing Initiative (YIPI) students Felica Burggraf and Justice Cumming. YIPI is open to youth ages 14-17  in the Chatham-Kent area.

The program introduced students to various areas of police services including : media relations, traffic management, career development, property management, and record keeping. If you or your kids are interested in taking part in next year’s YIPI contact The Chatham-Kent Police Service Public Information Offier Const. Renee Cowell office: 519-380-6591
