The Ottawa Police Service (OPS) is pleased to announce that it is now accepting applications for the 2020 Thomas G. Flanagan S.C. Scholarship Award.
The $1,500 scholarship was established in 1993 in honour of the late Thomas G. Flanagan, who served as chief of police of the OPS between 1989 and 1993. It is presented annually to a woman from a racialized or Indigenous community who is interested in pursuing a career in policing, following a period of post-secondary study.
“The Ottawa Police is looking to hire more diverse candidates to better-reflect the communities we serve and protect,” said Diversity and Race Relations Staff Sergeant Ian Hayes. “This scholarship is an excellent opportunity for those interested in a career in policing.”
Applications are available online at ottawapolice.ca/students and can be submitted by email to DiversityandRaceRelations@ottawapolice.ca, or by mail to: Ottawa Police Service, Diversity and Race Relations, P.O. Box 9634, Station T, Ottawa, Ontario, K1G 6H5.
The deadline for applications is February 29, 2020.
