Re: OPP chooses new sidearm: Glock 17

Is that comment in the article claiming that all Ontario police services are mandated by the province to switch to 9mm correct? It does appear that way and would make sense. Kingston Police about year and half ago dropped Sig P229 for Glock 17's. If a agency has the ability to switch it will be 9mm...

Re: Opioids - Naloxone

Surprised its not available like an epi-pen.. The spray version is just as effective as the IM version, it's just significantly more expensive. The nasal spray we have is 4x more powerful than the injection, thats about the only difference. We were told during training that once a naloxone injectio...

Re: Edmonton Police Service Recruiting

I am originally from the UK and have been in Canada for just over a year. I have only had one employer in Canada (And wouldn't be able to get a reference as I don't want them to know i am applying in case I am unsuccessful) If I were you I'd let my employer know at the very least that your interest...

I'm arriving to the thread late , however, let me ensure you that myself as well as other officers I currently work with do appreciate most security guards.

Re: Puncture/Slash Resistant Gloves

There was a study done a few years ago (can't find link right now) indicating that a) the all leather gloves held way more bacteria than the other materials b) no matter how much hand sanitizer you used it doesn't actually make a difference.

Re: Appealing a Deferal

It's disappointing seeing so many jump to the conclusion that someone requesting an appeal is trying to whine their way in and that there absolutely must be a good reason for their deferral. You don't know their story or their file. Mistakes happen, misunderstandings happen, systems fail, and somet...
