Re: Ask a Sheriff

I had the opportunity to work at the new courthouse for a couple weeks when it first opened many years ago. Its a beautiful courthouse. I know many South guys and girls and they are top notch..... they just like the wrong hockey team. But then again apparently so do I, since I am from Ontario origin...

Re: Ask a Sheriff

I personally worked in the rural court areas and quite enjoyed them. In the major centers (HIPOWER correct me if I am wrong) you are mainly assigned to one area of responsibility for a set period of time, however you may cover off breaks or days off for people etc. So you would be working mainly in ...

Re: Ask a Sheriff

We do have carbines.....only the shooting teams use them now. Fish and Wildlife which is under the same ministry is currently testing carbines. Them acquiring carbines may open the door for the Sheriifs in the future. Nothing is planned at this time for the front line to get them. Shooting teams? ?...

Re: Richmond RCMP - could the end be near.

It's my understanding that the municipality owns the buildings, and cars. If it is a rural car (speaking Alberta here) then the province and fed gov split the cost. I am sure they would have a lot of members jump ship. Either for fear of ending up in Manitoba, or because they are settled. You would ...

Re: Holding peace officer status with different departments

In Alberta it is possible to hold multiple peace officer appointments. I personally had looked this up in the past. I believe both your "employing agencies" have to agree. I know numerous Peace Officers that are also Aux RCMP Cst's.

Re: Ask a Sheriff

That position is more of the traditional sheriff position. You would be dealing more with the civil side of things including re-possesion of goods, evicting tenants etc. I believe some places also call it a bailiff. It is nothing like the Alberta Sheriffs or most of the court/prisoner Sheriffs throu...
