Not an accurate statement.

It is helpful for those who need help in their fitness. Certainly not a deal breaker.

Re: Edmonton Police Service Recruiting

It's anticipated that there will be 3 classes next year. The start dates haven't been set yet. So February is a possibility.

The training centre move will be sometime in the spring.

Re: Edmonton Police Service Recruiting

Hiring will be strong until the end of 2016. There are 2 classes of around 35 left for this year. In 2017, hiring will drop to 2 classes of 35 per year.

Not for 2016, maybe some slightly reduced hiring in 2017, but not by much. Always lots of attrition/retiring going on.

Re: plantar fasciitis

Yeah I just developed it in my left foot in the last couple weeks. Annoying. Funny this thread just got revived. I have been stepping on a golf ball and rolling it around, but I might have to try the splint out. But I think it came on from doing a few squad runs in shitty shoes. I was going to run ...

Re: plantar fasciitis

Re: Middle of nowhere

I would think it's probably better to apply with big services that are hiring a lot, compared to a small town force that may only hire a short few. And I'm sure if those small towns are looking for applicants, they probably would prefer their own to apply. I would try growing cities, such as Edmont...
