Re: How hard is Depot?

The overall failure rate (people actually going home) is still in the 2-3% range, or around 1 person a troop (on average). This number is only as high as it is because some people still fail the PARE and get sent home before they are hardly unpacked... I was just looking at the input/output numbers...

Re: RCMP Detachments

Hey Argyll...if you are looking for a busy workload and to learn as much as possible in as little time possible would you be wanting a small detachment/area or a larger one? I guess I figure in a smaller one with fewer members you would get a lot of opportunities, but that could also be said about ...

Re: How hard is Depot?

"Hard" is a relative term at Depot. Some days are hard... physically, mentally, emotionally... Some time these days connect to make a tough week. Some folks can't get over the distance from family and it makes it a tough 6 months. Overall, I'd have to say looking back that it was easy. If ...

Re: Bilingual

I had a Corporal from Depot come talk to my class today and has given me an interest in the RCMP but somebody told me that if you are not bilingual ( I only speak english) then your chances of getting into the RCMP are low. Is this true or just a rumor? Thanks Justin If you are talking about and Re...

In our detachment, if you are called from home to come and help, there is no question that you are getting paid. If you have to stay late because of an operational requirement - maybe a K file that needs to be completed, you can put in for OT. It's a little more gray area when it comes to 'catching ...

I spoke with my recruiter today and it was defiantly the bankruptcy. Their suggestion was to get my credit in order and re-establish myself before re-applying, I can re-apply in one year but I won't know until I get to this point again in the future. I did pass the interview however they did expres...

You don't necessarily need a full 7 years of clean credit before applying - and even after 7 years you'd need to disclose it during the interview if they asked. I suspect there just hasn't been enough time between the discharge and your application for recruiting to get a good feel for your current ...

Here is what I tell all the kids that tell me they want to be an RCMP member: You can't change the past, so when you come across a situation and it makes you think, "Hey, this might be something I wish I didn't do", think hard about what decision you make. Every time I scoop a juvi impaired, I just ...

In BC, our domestic abuse policy means a call to a 'K' file is good for 2-3 hours of paperwork at least by the time all the PORS, CFRO, and cross reference the VIC and SOC PIRS entries to find out how many times they've gone at it before. Then of course they have no intention of honouring any releas...

Depends on the division... 'E' Div, 10-62 means 'meal break'... you'll find variations, especially on the high numbers.

The issue is you can't use any RCMP equipment to maintain a web site or journal. So, if you can go offsite and do it at an internet cafe, you are OK. As already noted, there are also restrictions on what kind of stuff you can post... For the 'risk' of getting into trouble, it's probably safest to no...

If you can, find a partner that will help pace you - often it's not a physical problem with running distance, it's a mental issue. Also, many people find the first mile or so to be the most difficult, but push hard to keep at it, your body will soon recognize what is going on and make the adjustment...

An employer must provide you access to your file if you request it. Start with a registered letter stating such, and begin to keep notes on every contact you make with them, and everything that is said. If it ever comes to challenging them (ie, you don't get in in another year because of them), you ...

In today's society, it is VERY tough to not have a credit history. That means you would have no credit cards, no cell phone (unless prepaid), no line of credit at the bank, no mortgage/rent, no car/insurance payments, no salary advances from work... Put it this way, if you don't have a credit histo...
