Re: Toronto Police Service

TPS divisions noted on a variety of schedules in November, so it depends on the division you work at.

Re: PTSD and you.

Do you find that it helps other in your service? Time willl determine that. We still have quite a large number of the service to get through so if it's effectiveness won't be truly determined for years to come. The problem is, even though supervisory staff all the way up to Saunders have received t...

Re: PTSD and you.

It's mandatory for Ontario services. I'm an instructor for it at our college and we are working to get the staff who didn't receive it at OPC (around 5000) trained within the next 2 years. We run 2/3 classes a week. It's good to see even senior constables taking it seriously. I'm a huge proponent o...

Re: Ask a Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Officer

I am interested in applying for the MTO Transportation Enforcement Officer position once it is posted?

Any MTO TEO's feel like discussing some of the pros and cons of that career?

Re: ASK A SPECIAL CONSTABLE

After speaking to management there turn over is an issue right now as they have had a number of people get hired as Constables, retire and become specials at places closer to their residence which is the only reason why they left.
