Re: Toronto Police Service

TPS is going to be dealing with much more volume this year than last, because an application can be submitted pre-fitness assessment and the PATI was harder than the GMAA. TPS recruiters are going to be very busy.

Re: Vision and hearing test

Call nearby optometrists and hearing clinics. Tell them you're looking to get exams done for the purpose of pre-employment screening and that you'll need forms filled out. When they confirm that they can do all those tests (some may not have all the necessary equipment), book your appointment.

Re: Police services and ATS

Mind if I ask which service is compensating vision/hearing after offer? TPS had a very temporary period of time where internal applicants were being compensated for testing fees if they got an offer, but now that's completely gone.

Re: Store Security releasing offenders

Also why would store security be stopping someone to demand an item back, as opposed to legally conducting an arrest anyway?
Less paperwork and hassle :D

Re: Police services and ATS

I'm happy to see ATS is no longer in the picture, but the financial barrier to applying hasn't gone away. $250 to start your OACP process (valid for 1 year) and additional fees for your vision and hearing exam at separate clinics (~$200). Definitely still going to be spending a lot of money consider...

Re: Vision standard

Keep in mind laser eye surgery, like any surgical operation, can have complications. You need to go over the risks with the surgeon and weigh them against how much you want to be a police officer. There are many special constable employers that don't require vision testing and that's something worth...

Re: Police services and ATS

There may be some miscommunication regarding the new Mental Ability Assessment. From the OACP Certificate website FAQ: 9. What happens if I fail the Part B or Part C testing? Both Part B and Part C are not a pass or fail assessment. Rather, they are both tools used by the police service (which you a...

Re: New recruits at an all-time low

Mike, I don't think it would go back to the pay-per-service system. You currently don't have to pay to apply for the OPP.

You have to pay $330 to take the test with ATS. Does the operating cost of ATS justify this? How much of this is profit?

Re: Toronto Police Service

Rough for PC hiring right now. TPS is something like 400 below its approved strength right now and still struggling to meet the budget the City has asked for. The next year's gonna be interesting as the KPMG report on TPS rolls out and we see how the TPSB handles it.

Re: Do LEOs value Security personel?

Contract security while you're in college/university isn't too bad of an idea. It's a flexible schedule job that lets you jam in a lot of hours on weekends and evenings when you're not attending classes, and the constant availability of extra shifts is good for packing in even more hours during the ...

Re: City of Mississauga - Corporate Security

Yeah security job or not, they pay very well. Most people would be disappointed that they couldn't get that. Plus, if I'm not mistaken, they are empowered to enforce Mississauga bylaws.

Re: TPS Parking Enforcement

They ask you to take a medical form to your family physician and have him/her complete an examination and then fill it out. If you don't have a family physician, you can go to a walk-in (make sure you specifically book an appointment for employment-based exam; this is not covered by OHIP and you'll ...
