Re: OPP Applicant Updates Thread

I just got the call last Tuesday and because I used this forum so much for research I thought I should contribute a little. Obviously I won't comment on anything specific about the process, however I want to encourage people to be at their competitive best. What I would say was the strongest part o...

Re: Canadian Correctional Services (Provincial and Federal)

I would suggest writing something related to the state of provincial corrections in Ontario. Ontario Corrections has been in the news extensively and there would be lots of story material there. The public's perception of corrections and correctional officers could use some fixing up. Corrections se...

I'm currently going through the process with OPP Auxiliary. Passed the interview and just wrote the PATI/Psych la...

Re: Ontario Correctional Services

You're not going to know until you get to where you're going and find out first hand. Most if not all information re. hours is anicdotal at best. My anicdotal observation is this. If your willing to work you will get your 40 and then some. If you come in with all sorts of "requirements" l...

Re: Ontario Correctional Services

Congrats! Tons of people going to TSDC. . Yeah... They need to replace all those getting fired, suspended and transferring out. I'm finishing up COTA in about a week. From what I've gathered so far, the suspensions aren't all that rare - it seems like the inmates have more rights than the officers....
