Four DC grads hired as DRPS constables

After years of hard work, dedication and volunteering, four Durham College (DC) graduates saw their dreams become reality as they were sworn in as constables with the Durham Regional Police Service (DRPS).

Christine Barnett, a 2011 graduate of the Victimology program, Ryan Roffey, a 2009 graduate of the Police Foundations program, Ryan Sheridan, a 2013 graduate of the Police Foundations program and Sunil Madhaven, a 2010 graduate of the Law and Security Administration (now Protection, Security and Investigations) program all attribute their success to the dedicated professors and the structure of their respective programs in DC’s School of Justice & Emergency Services.

“The field placement at the end of the two-year program really helped me with networking and getting to know the right people to help me in my future,” says Madhaven.

“I felt very confident going into the Ontario Police College because I already had a great background in these subjects as a result of the Police Foundations program,” says Sheridan. “The professors at DC provided me with amazing support in my pursuit of a position with the DRPS.”
