Re: OPP Applicant Updates Thread

Odd, I thought alot of officers were retiring and the OPP was in need of officers. If they freeze hiring and officers continuously retire can't that put the OPP In a state of crisis? At the end of the day, no money means no recruits. Budget cuts mean doing more with less - cruisers on the road long...

Re: OPP Applicant Updates Thread

The HSD is slowly moving towards 5/4. Having worked 5/4 and the 4/4, I found my sleep schedule was better on the 4/4, but my personal life was better on the 5/4. YMMV. As for calls, they can come at any time - I was given an offer three weeks prior to starting, others were given an offer two weeks p...

I'm hearing mixed answers. Can someone tell me, do you get your detachment at offer or during training ?

Thanks all and be safe out there.
I was informed of my posting at offer.

Re: OPP Applicant Updates Thread

Looking for some insight. Do you guys think that due to the budget cut with the OPP, the class sizes will be affected? How do you think this will effect the recruitment process? I wouldn't focus on that, as you can't change anything that they decide on to meet those cuts. Rumours are flying around ...

Re: OPP Applicant Updates Thread

I was actually wondering the same thing. Anyone able to give some insight ? I can’t give insight but I will venture to say that although they receive many applications the majority of the applicants aren't what they are looking for or didn't make it past different stages of the process. They have s...

Don't be first, don't be last. When I went I aimed to keep my 10km under 60 minutes and that worked for me.

Re: Toronto ETF (the security company)

I walked into a local radio shop the other day off duty and saw the owner... sans patches, but all kitted up with more kit than I'd ever be able to fit in the back of my Explorer. Thought about walking over and asking some questions, but alas he was off in his "unmarked explorer" before I got a chan...

Re: Ontario Correctional Services

At OPC across all services, there was 1 former C.O. and he's with Woodstock. If 1/245 or 2/200 is an "advantage" then I must be doing my math wrong, especially when you consider how many C.O's apply. There were more former Sobeys employees than CO's that were hired. At the end of the day, your job ...
