In an innovative approach to community engagement, the Régie intermunicipale de police Thérèse-De Blainville has rolled out the Personal Orientation Program (POP), a one-of-a-kind initiative designed to foster understanding and respect between young citizens and law enforcement. The program recently highlighted its unique appeal through a special event that connected police officers with teenagers from Jean-Jacques Rousseau high school in Boisbriand, offering a rare glimpse into the world of police work through a hands-on experience.

The event, was not only a significant occasion for the participating officers but also a milestone for three young girls who embarked on a day-long internship. This initiative is more than just a simple meet-and-greet; it is a structured, experiential journey enabling students to engage in an individual exploratory process. Through this program, the teenagers dove deep into the intricacies of law enforcement, uncovering the various facets that define the profession.

These young explorers had the chance to step into the shoes of police officers, performing arrest simulations and vehicle interceptions. Such activities are designed to provide a realistic understanding of the challenges and responsibilities that come with the badge, bridging the gap between theoretical knowledge and real-world application.

The success of this day was palpable, driven by the teenagers’ motivation, attentiveness, and enthusiasm. These attributes, combined with the immersive nature of the program, facilitated a genuine connection between the students and the police, fostering a mutual respect that is often sought but seldom achieved in such a direct manner.
