Kingston Police announced that they are both proud and excited to introduce Cst. Amy Carter as their newest mounted police officer.
Cst. Carter is currently undergoing 15 weeks of training in order to prepare for the position, and will patrol with Murney, the Kingston Police horse.
According to a release from Kingston Police, Cst. Carter began her career in policing with the Ontario Provincial Police in April 1998. In July 1999, Cst. Carter joined the Kingston Police as a member of the Uniform Patrol Division, where she served as a carbine operator, scenes of crime officer, coach officer and acting Sergeant.
Cst. Carter then transferred to the Community Oriented Response and Engagement (CORE) Unit where she served the community as a community resource officer, Kingston Police said. After completing her position in the CORE Unit, Cst. Carter joined the Special Services Division and served as a drug continuity officer and the dangerous offender/high risk offender manager. Most recently, Cst. Carter served as a Detective in the Sex Assault and Crimes against Children Unit.
The Kingston Police wish to thank the community for their on-going support and appreciation of the Mounted Unit.
Keep an eye out for Cst. Carter and her trusty partner Murney on the streets of Kingston this summer!
