Communications Operators are Ontario’s initial first responders. In 2022, they answered 2.22 million 911 and non-emergency calls for service, supporting their communities 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Communications Operators also help to ensure that Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) officers are able to make it home safely at the end of their shift.
This National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week, OPP members across the province give their heartfelt thanks to all Provincial Communications Centre (PCC) staff for their commitment to safe communities and a secure Ontario. PCC members include over 500 civilian members and officers, who are based in one of four service delivery locations in London, North Bay, Orillia and Thunder Bay.
Communications Operators work in a fast-paced environment where the appl ication of speed and accuracy is critical in urgent and sometimes life-threatening emergencies. Our PCCs are hiring throughout the year. Those interested in a rewarding career are encouraged to apply to a Communications Operator role, which include both English and bilingual positions. Further information on how to apply is available at //opp.ca/pcc.
The OPP is dedicated to ensuring open, accessible, equitable and respectful workplaces, and is committed to reflecting the diverse communities it serves. We encourage applications from members of diverse communities, including Indigenous Peoples, persons with disabilities, women, persons from racialized groups, 2SLGBTQ+ persons, those who are able to speak fluently i n another language(s), and anyone committed to a rewarding career in public service.
