Re: Potential police applicant? Good applicant?

Guys, Many of our new recruits are coming to us with PhDs, several masters degrees, extensive professional work history, management experience, military experience, volunteer experience, or a combination of all of the above. The easiest part of a recruiters job is finding the most qualified people ...

Re: Potential police applicant? Good applicant?

Ok I'll answer your initial question then. You're an average at best candidate on paper from what I've read. You meet some checks in the box, but most of the things you've listed (degree, minimal time in the military, I assume reserves) are a dime a dozen in police applicants. You have listed no vo...

I read your entire statement......

If you honestly believe that time in the infantry with nothing but courses and exercises in a controlled environment where the most stressful thing you're going to deal with is a MCpl maybe yelling at you, then you truly have no idea what policing entails stress wise.

I'm not looking for an argument here, I'm merely offering my opinion that has been formed by 1) having spent a lot more time in the combat arms than you, including deployments and 2) being a current serving police officer.

If you want to sit there and get confrontataional and argumentative with someone who has more experience than you......then the military has taught you nothing. Learn from experience and those who have experience.....I think you'll find that is one of the Canadian Forces 12 principles of leadership.

Read what I've said and really think about it......or don't......I'm not the one trying to get hired.



For the record: I do think operational deployment >99% of anything in a police environment.


Pmed btw.

Re: Potential police applicant??

And of course infantry training and experience are on parallel with the stresses of policing (in a different way) Unless you've deployed to an operational theatre, that statement is 100% incorrect. Did you only read that one comment, extrapolate what you wanted to hear, and then reply back without ...

Re: Potential police applicant??

I disagree with the portion regarding pursuing studies while working full time as a cop as being impossible. I am studying, one course at a time, and working in patrol and doing night shifts and attending court. If upgrading yourself is your goal, you will do it. Lots of online programs now which ar...

Re: Potential police applicant??

I have considered Policing as a career for a considerable amount of time. My main concern is: once (assuming I've been hired) would it be possible for a constable to attend a part-time or full-time masters program? Does the shift work make this possible, of course with a little bit of finesse and d...
