Re: BC Corrections

Thank you. I'm looking forward to it cause there's a ton of opportunity within BC Corrections and since it's still Provincial, I could move into Sheriff or elsewhere, and I'm sure the experience I'd get from it and other things I do, would help me get into Police if I decide down the road.

Re: Applying to Correctional Service Canada

If you were given an option to work min/med vs max institution what would the majority of you applicants pick? Just curious if there is a benefit at working at one Vs the other. Any input would be great. If I were to make a recommendation, it would be that every new officer should have to do their ...

Re: Applying to Correctional Service Canada

Got an offer for Drumheller, training to start in PEI April 21. Tough decision because that’s a 1 1/2hr commute for me and I also have an offer from the provincial govt. But then again the provincial govt in AB is surely heading for big cuts so it might not be a secure job. For reference, my last c...

Has anyone who has gotten an offer for PEI class 10, 11 or 12 received CTP 2 information yet?
Haven't received CTP 2 information yet but did get my invite for April 28. Hope to recieve it soon.
Dayuuum, they are pushing them through if you don't have CTP2 but your conditional letter for 3.

Re: Applying to Correctional Service Canada

This is really painful waiting to hear from CSC. :banghead: You're not missing much. The stories I am hearing about institutions from the people who graduated in my core. Kinda sad, I didn't graduated, but the flipside is thank god I didn't graduate. The changes in policy. Ouch. As soon as you make...

Re: Fisheries Officer (DFO)

-GCT2 -Fishery Officer Knowledge Exam -Written essay portion This was the testing when I went through the process. Not sure if it has changed since.

Re: Fisheries Officer (DFO)

Hey everyone. I dug through this whole thread but I'm finding some conflicting info on specifically what written exams have to be completed in the testing portion of the process.

https://www.todaysnorthumberland.ca/2020/01/20/correctional-officer-at-warkworth-institution-violently-assaulted/ I toured this facility. It is really interesting in a housing unit with everything stacked up against the CX and their fears of being hit with an excessive force accusation if a violent...

Got my package in the mail along with my hand grips. Has anybody else gotten confirmation yet?
Question Jolly,

Is it a Conditional Letter like in CSC that shows where you're going to be posted? Or is it one of those things you find out in Depot?

Anyone know where to buy pocket less sweat pants?
If you're going to Kingston, they'll supply the sweat pants. The guys at PEI sewed the pockets shut. They just don't want a hand getting in the pocket during self defense, excellent way to break a bone.

Re: Applying to Correctional Service Canada

Has anyone received an invitation for CTP 2/3 for Feb or Mar? I'll be starting CTP 3 Feb 5th. I got in to Warkworth Institution. Congrats! We toured Warkworth in our core. It's really neatly laid out. We also saw the new SHU area. Just walking around with the inmates. It honestly looks like a small...
