January 18, 2016   ·   0 Comments

Humber College Orangeville has announced another program expansion at the local campus. Last week, the post-secondary institution announced via press release that the School of Social and Community Service have partnered with the Orangeville Police Service to launch the Police Foundations Student Volunteer program at the campus.

This new opportunity will provide students enrolled in Humber Orangeville’s Police Foundations program to gain on-site experiences from the day-to-day operations with the Orangeville Police.

“We are pleased to be able to offer this unique perspective of the day-to-day operations of our police service to selected students of the Humber College Orangeville Police Foundations Program,” said Chief Wayne Kalinski.

This new venture will add to students’ specific classroom activities, allowing volunteers to be included in a variety of OPS operational activities. The hope is that through these activities, specific policing practices will be reinforced for the students.

“Humber College looks forward to further enhancing what is already a very strong relationship with Orangeville Police,” said Derek Stockley, Dean of the School of Social Sciences and Community Services.

The official announcement regarding the expansion will be held this Wednesday, January 20th at 4 p.m. at the Humber Orangeville Campus, alongside an information session for interested students.

The information session will include representatives from the Police Foundations Program, the Orangeville Police Service, as well as Humber College.
