Hear from the people that work here

It doesn’t take one type of person to keep a community safe. In 2023, effective policing takes a team that includes people of all backgrounds and walks of life, and with all sorts of skillsets and interests.

We want you to picture how you fit in at York Regional Police. To do that, we want to introduce you to some of the great people that make up this organization. Hear their stories and follow in their footsteps to a rewarding career at YRP.

Learn about Jonathon's journey from rock n' roll aspirations to fulfilling an old childhood dream of becoming a police officer.

Jonathon spent several years recording albums and playing on tour with his high school band. Eventually, he traded his guitar for a badge, joining York Regional Police at the age of 29.

He may have got a haircut, but behind the badge, he's the same guy. And he's using the lessons he learned going from stage to stage with his bandmates to support him in his policing career.

See how the challenges Alethia faced in the gym as a track-and-field athlete, personal trainer and bodybuilder have prepared her for work as a police officer.

Alethia is no longer a hurdler, but she knows there are plenty of hurdles to clear to build trust and partnership in the community she serves. Years of improving her physical form have taught her to appreciate progress in all its forms.

Providing great police service is hard work, but Alethia also enjoys the time she has found in her work schedule to keep striving for new milestones in the gym.
