The Recruiting Unit is located in the YRP Training and Education Facility and handles recruitment of new and experienced Constables, auxiliary and volunteer officers, student cadets and York Region Transit special constables. The Recruiting Unit processes an average of 950 applications annually and hires for various positions.

The Unit operates under the Constable Selection System which provides guidelines, candidate assessment tools and best practices for the hiring of police constables in Ontario.
