Re: Rumors? or truth

OPS has never laid off police officers or any full time members for that matter. They are still recruiting just like everyone else. As for the language thing. OPS has hired an officer from another country who can't speak very much english. Not sure how the person made it through the hiring process ...

CO


If it were in the present my guess would be CCC S. 180 (1) Common nuisance.
In the past we weren't able to arrest for Criminal Code offences.

Re: It's been a while...

To be honest, services admire dedication and loyalty. Learned through valuable experience, I would say just wait and apply to RCMP later on. In this mean time, why not pick up on some extra volunteer work and make youuself even more valuable to RCMP. I would apply to APD now. You may or may not be ...

If you are within a reasonable drive time to the US border or an 'international' airport check out the Canada Border Services Agency.

Re: Rigaud - Casual attire?

Just graduated from POERT and I can tell you that after class hours are casual, especially in the gym and residences. No need to dress up, just keep it clean and tidy.
You will have to iron your uniform shirt.

Double check your uniform issue with the port admin.

Re: CBSA Shifts

I am going to be going to Rigaud for Border Service Officer training in September, and if all goes well, I will start working in the Greater Vancouver area in the middle of November.

Re: What are the "ranks" in the CBSA?

I heard that there's not enough gold stripe in the World to create a uniform for Actus... I wear my stripes vertically, it makes me look slimmer that way. Actually, this is approximately what my uniform looks like, only a little more dictatorial: http://www.teachersparadise.com/ency/en/media/3/3a/i...

Re: firearms certificate required for Rigaud

The Agency will re-imburse the costs, however, check if they will do so in advance of being selected for the firearms training. If not, it's up to you if you want to wait or get it without being re-imbu...
