The Barrie Police Service provides exceptional training and professional development to all members of the Service. The Training Unit continues to operate out of 79 Bell Farm Road, and while the restrictions incurred from the pandemic limited the amount of in-person learning, they focused on innovative training techniques, while being mindful of pandemic restrictions. Twenty-three members also participated in Ontario Police College and Canadian Police College training.
