Re: OPP chooses new sidearm: Glock 17

Pretty exciting, a great platform. This just shows the massive shift back to 9mm is happening. My department, a large state agency, is transitioning back to 9mm after a long run of .40 S&W. We are also getting pistol lights issued as well.

Re: Exploring out of province/country law enforcement option

In addition to what was mentioned by exle0987, many departments set a minimum of basic disqualifications that would automatically prohibit you from applying. If these dis-qualifiers do not apply to you, or if you have questions, disclose everything on your application. Many agencies will look at the...

Re: Exploring out of province/country law enforcement option

State law-enforcement officer here. I'm unaware of any agencies that have lowered hiring standards or would hire someone outside of state or federal citizenship requirements. Care to elaborate?

Re: OPP chooses new sidearm: Glock 17

If given the chance most will drop their 40sw Glock's for the new 17M platform. I agree, and I'd be willing to bet that Glock will be offering 17M's at a bargain price (or urging distributors to give generous allowances for trade-ins) to get more into the hands of departments for exposure. Yupppp! ...

Re: Ask a Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Officer

Sparwood would be a nice duty location!

Here we have CVEO 1-4. CVEO 1's are the core group in the field. CVEO 2's are similar to a corporal rank (lead worker), CVEO 3's would be supervisors and CVEO 4's are program managers, be that industry based or training related.

Re: OPP chooses new sidearm: Glock 17

Not just a Glock 17 but the new Glock 17M The internet was hot and heavy with info on the 17M earlier this year but I haven't seen any recent developments lately. I haven't even received any updated armorer documentation on the specific differences (compared to the boatload armorers were sent at th...

Re: OPP chooses new sidearm: Glock 17

Not sure what the love is for the 1911. Then there's no saving you... Not many folks have had the chance to really run a decent 1911 platform so go easy on him Heck...I'd bet that most LE officers hired in the past 5 years haven't even handled a 1911, let alone know how to clear one or make it safe.

Re: Your opinion - By-law/MLEO Uniforms, PPE and Vehicles

Just for some perspective,in the states (especially here in WA), department heads are permited to grant limited commissions to their staff to supplement fully-commissioned officers. In many cases here near Seattle, these officers serve roles such as animal control, custodial transport and court secu...

Seeing a lot of them popping up around here as taxis (in addition to the Ann Arbor, Greenie-friendly Prius). Current versions have the 4.6L V8 & automatic transmission from FoMoCo so taxi fleets will love the maintenance ease and familiarity. There is supposed to be a transition to the 3.7L V6 a...
