Re: Police Foundations

A big clue is a "college" operating out of a "mini mall" and not a legitimate college campus.

Just sayin'.

See everyone successful in April! Best of luck all. :thumbsup: Hey Punisher if you don't mind me asking, how ...

Re: Wearing our Mistakes

To further the above post there are many reputable studies showing that a load bearing vest is ergonomically superior for carrying equipment than a belt. I don't know of any Officers that haven't had some type of discomfort or pain from a fully loaded belt. I, for one, can't wait for my new career a...

Re: Store Security releasing offenders

I think the program is a good idea, especially if your call volume is busy. He arrested 4 people for stuff under $10? How about getting the stuff back and telling them to take a hike? I’ve never done LPO, but making an arrest for $3.00 is like me arresting someone for not paying their bus fare. I’l...

Re: Adding ventilation to drum brakes?

The only thing drilling holes will do is allow mud water and other contaminants in and not only negatively impact your braking power but also prematurely rust and wear the components. I am an avid 4 wheeler and built my own 1-ton jeep fyi :)

Re: The subject of arming western Community Peace Officers

Zero2, As impressive as your resume is, I have to disagree with your stance. I am a strong advocate for clear distinction between police and other law enforcement agencies. I absolutely recognize why Alberta sees the need for sheriffs doing traffic stops or peace officers being out and about in pub...

Re: The subject of arming western Community Peace Officers

I have no doubt Police appreciate the extra manpower but really other than the lower salary these CPO's are doing a Police job without all the tools that Police have to protect themselves. Why take that risk and why would the municipality accept that responsibility? If they are doing arrests and war...

Re: The subject of arming western Community Peace Officers

Well the CPO's in Alberta to my knowledge do smaller towns and M.D.'s so it gives a town or M.D. control over how it's being protected in some capacity at least, without having to create its own police force. Also it's probably cheaper salary wise to have CPO's. CPO's carry radios and likely dispat...

Re: The subject of arming western Community Peace Officers

Why not just hire Police Officers to do the job? What's the point of having unarmed response to Police calls?
Literally every duty you listed is done by full Police Officers in Ontario.

Re: [Ontario] Private property & Road Signs Enforceable?

I have a question in regards to private property having Stop Signs and such. As I understand, HTA does not apply to private properties in Ontario. Does that mean these signs are basically not enforceable? Under HTA that is correct. HTA applies to a "highway". Look at your long form HTA for the defi...
