Uniform Recruiting


As our name implies, the OPP is responsible for providing policing services throughout Ontario. These services include municipal contract policing, rural policing, traffic enforcement and other specialties.

You must be willing to serve anywhere in the province of Ontario to be considered for a constable position within the OPP. A candidate's preferences are taken into consideration at the time an offer of employment is made. Both the needs of the organization and the needs of the candidate are considered when posting a recruit class.

Detachment locations vary from large urban centres to isolated settings. Some northern postings are identified as duration postings that require assigned members to complete a fixed period of service before being transferred to an area of their choice. Duration posts have special pay incentives as detailed on our benefits and pay page. This duration time frame commences on the officers' arrival at the detachment after the 18 week recruit training phase.
