The College trains officers who have already been hired by a Police Department, including Municipal Police Departments, Regional Police Departments and the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP).

The officers attend this facility for their three months training for the Basic Constable's Diploma, and also for subsequent training.

This institution does not train members of the public and individuals who may apply for Police Training, as it is a post-hiring institution.

Keep in mind that height and weight don't matter to be a successful Police Officer, however it is important to be healthy and in good shape, so before heading to the OPC, it is a good idea to begin any weight training, swimming, running and working out, so help you be in peak shape for your upcoming course! 

Within the field of Law Enforcement there are different areas, such as forensics, information technology, research and analytical, communications, mechanical, and executive and managerial.

During Basic Training this will be discussed.

The College is built on the grounds of the former Royal Canadian Airforce Station, in Aylmer, which was part of the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan during the second World War.

The College has existed in it's present location since 1976.

The mandate of the College is rooted in the Ontario Police Services Act, which requires the OPC to provide training to members of police services in Ontario.

The College is located beside the Aylmer Wildlife Management Area where many migrating Waterfowl may be found in the Spring as they pass through this area.

If you are visiting the College during the month of March, take a few minutes to visit the wetlands there, and see the Tundra Swans and Canada Geese and other waterfowl from the viewing area.
