RCMP Kingston Detachment was pleased to host 22 female Federal Student Work Experience Program (FSWEP) students as part of the Young Women in Public Safety Internship Program on July 17th.
The program builds awareness among female high school aged students about the wide range of careers they can pursue under the umbrella of Public Safety.
The students heard presentations from all categories of employees about their experiences working within the RCMP.
O Division Commanding Officer, Assistant Commissioner Jodie Boudreau was joined by a number of employees from across the province that took part in the event and helped make it a great success.
Members from RCMP Kingston Serious & Organized Crime, St. Lawrence Shiprider, Emergency Response Team, Integrated National Security Enforcement Team, Ottawa Criminal Analysis Section, Forensic Identification Section, and Recruiting, all took part.
They were joined by several other organizations including Correctional Service of Canada, Canadian Border Service Agency, Public Safety Canada and the National Parole Board.
It was an amazing day, sharing and learning with amazing young ladies, thanks to everyone involved.
