Re: Store Security releasing offenders

Technically not legal. S. 494 requires a person when arrested by a citizen to be turned over to a peace officer. Phone is not acceptable, you can't turn a body over via phone... I am not saying it hasn't been done, I know it has for at least 20 years in some places but I don't agree with it. I think...

Re: Winnipeg Bus driver killed

Very sad. Does Winnipeg have their own Transit Security/Enforcement? They don't. Transit Supervisors have Special Constable / Peace Officer status but that really just lets them turf people from buses and bus shelters. They call police for everything else. Didn't know their supervisors have that au...

Will an OACP COR for a police constable (as oppose to the special constable testing) suffice?


Yes. Absolutely it will be accepted.

Re: Police... aren't people.

There are days I think we all should just quit. Then I remember that most of us just can't.

Walking away is not in our nature, turning our back is not possible and never ever giving up is our way of life.

So watch your six, look out for your people and keep your head up.

Re: 2013 Ford Interceptor & Utility

I didn't read the other 29 pages of this thread. Just wondering, has any other force/service been talking about dumping the new Ford PI and either going completely with the Explorer or even giving the Dodge another go? In discussion with a member of the local PS the other day a host of issues with t...

Re: OC Transpo Special Constable Position Open

Both. The review by the American Public Transit Association (APTA) identified special constables as "under-resourced". According to other information, Ottawa has the least number of transit officers in comparison with other transit systems of similar size (Edmonton/Calgary). We are curren...

Re: OC Transpo Special Constable Position Open

Can't really answer. Best I can say is that they will be determined on a case by case basis for more exotic forms of LE (Corrections, MTO, CBSA). They would definitely be a bonus to an application. I'll see if I can get a real answer from a manager to post in the future. In the past it has only been...

Re: The Peace Officer Exemplary Service Medal

Thanks for that. Quick facts though for the highly knowledgeable visitor. No OC officers have ever held a security guard licence under either the former private investigators and security guard act or the replacement PSISA. They haven't been security since 1982. They were a security department betwe...

Re: The Peace Officer Exemplary Service Medal

Unlikely any OC specials would qualify. 1st time poster+no justification for statement=TROLL Unless you're someone in the know at Rideau Hall... How would you know? They give it out to MTO Enforcement and B.C. Sherriffs... Also, do you know anything about OC or what has happened or been done there?...
