Re: Psychologist's Interview

Thanks very much for the insight. I definitely plan on being nothing but honest. Do you guys know if a lot of applicants make it to this stage? I don't know what service you're applying with but I would imagine that most people that have been successful with all of the initial steps make it to the ...

Re: Psychologist's Interview

I wouldn't stress it. It's one of the few steps in the process that's out of your control. Just relax and be honest about everything and you'll find it's not really any different than the other interviews you've already done to get to that point. It should be obvious but don't try reading into the q...

Re: Edmonton Police Service Recruiting

Have my BDI Interview next week and can't think of any examples for BDI? Anyone have advice or will I have to end up winging it? I'd also suggest making sure you're prepared. It's the one interview where you're almost guaranteeing failure if you haven't prepped. As Jframer suggested, look through t...

Re: Edmonton Police Service Recruiting

Anyone in stage 8 have an idea of how long EPS would give an out of town applicant (if successful) time to prepare and be in Edmonton. ie. when would they call "us" to inform us we have been invited to RTC- if RTC class is scheduled for Aug 2018. Thanks I was out of province and think I h...

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: Why did you choose the service you chose?

My service was my second choice - I was not successful with my first choice - but wow did things ever work out for me. I dont think I'd be as happy with my first choice. Living the dream still, 11 years in. Great training, great equipment, great work-life balance, tremendous support through injurie...

Well finally did it. Just today. I submitted my application for EPS. Need not worry. I won’t ask when I get in and all that Jazz. Just excited to be apart of the process and pray it will go quickly.


Good luck.

Re: Improve my resume

Most of Mack's advice was on point and he's correct that there's no magic formula to getting hired, but the image with the Yelp 3 out of 5 stars with a blurb saying needs more volunteering doesn't come across very well, particularly coming from someone who isn't actually a cop. It would be like me c...

Re: Why did you choose the service you chose?

Municipal. Better equipment, better pay, healthier morale, management that actually cares, support, way less bull shit. Some leaders will march with you, stand with you, freeze their ass, have your back, tell you to ‘take a knee’ if you need to... some won’t as they don’t give a shit. #386 You're a...

Re: Any lawyers made the change?

Yup, I made the change and haven't regretted it at all and there are a few of us floating out there. If you have any specific questions feel free to PM me as I don't want to reveal too much on the public side.

Re: The future as a police officer

Oh don’t get me wrong. I’m not saying education is a bad thing. All I was saying is that people shouldn’t think that just because they are well educated that it’ll necessarily make them a better applicant then someone with minimum education but unique life experience. But it also depends on what yo...

Re: The future as a police officer

I am sorry if I sounded like I was complaining. I was just merely trying to understand the level of competition; like what kind of credentials are people applying with? What I meant by asking about the long process and the repeated rejections was if those rejections are due to some red flag in the ...

Re: Improve my resume

I see so many applicants asking the same question about what to add to their resume to make themselves more competitive, however, there isn't really an answer to that. Police recruiters see thousands of applications and they can see right through the ones trying to pad their resumes. You already see...

Re: Mobility as a Police Officer

Hello, I'm in the process of applying to the Ottawa Police Service. One of the things I've been curious about, with regards to the profession of a Police Officer, is how mobile the profession is. I don't always see myself living in Canada, I'd like the experience of working abroad for a bit. I know...

I was going to write a big post articulating my thoughts, but it's not really necessary as I wholeheartedly agree with Mr. Islander. His last few posts in particular are bang on. There is so much wrong with the way the auxiliary program is being run that I don't even know where to start. Let them be...
