Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

Edit: You're 40? Now that's embarrassing. I guess what's even more embarrassing is that our entitled applicant just got kicked off a law enforcement forum for insulting members, disparaging police and starting flame wars. This was a college prank thing a few years ago to come on forums like ours an...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

Hello ! I'm not quite sure this is the right place to ask, but I was wondering what the application process might look like for someone with my profile / background, and most importantly what might be my employment perspectives if I were to be recruited by the RCMP. I'm a 40/F Canadian citizen born...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

This, wish my wife saw this post before sinking 20k on online courses that "condense" 2 years into one.. Not necessarily a waste of money. There are some really good online courses, and the best ones are great for supplementing one's education, but I just don't think should be used replace an entir...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

Is there generally much of a difference if one were to take an online diploma in Police Studies while working full time? or would that be frowned upon compared to that of an in-class diploma? Alternatively, I suppose I could resume my original degree, but as I mentioned that university was getting ...

Re: What sidearms are used in your Police Service

Wow, that was a long time ago. I still remember those days, and I did an article on the Thunderbird Challenge in Blue Line, using a bit of a humorous nod to the age-old debate as to whether Military Police were Capital M, small p, or vice versa. I called it, "Capital M; Capital P." I have always had...

Re: What sidearms are used in your Police Service

Much better to ask this question in the private forums. Nothing secret about it as it is public knowledge, and Blue Line does Cross-Canada surveys every few years, but actual officers would be better placed to give you the good and the bad. In summary, from my last survey in the cover story of Decem...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

Just saw all the changes they made to the process and I'm left speechless. I was expecting they would radically shorten and simplify both the recruitment and training, but instead they made it even longer and more cumbersome. https://www.rcmp-grc.gc.ca/en/how-to-apply The key point is that going fo...

Re: GENERAL CBSA APPLICANT CHIT CHAT

All CFSC and CRFSC courses have also been suspended. Unless CBSA says otherwise, candidates without the two courses cannot start training. So if you have been a member of these forums and followed the advice you have been given by many of us over the years, you will have already taken the CFSC and C...

Re: Is this illegal to put inside your car windows?

Sorry, this is not an "ask-a-cop" forum. Obstruction of vision laws vary from province to province.

On the other hand, really bad taste in useless bling is, it appears, universal.

Re: Questions about the RMAQ

Mr. "Potentail" will no longer be with us. He is using a fake email address taken from websites that provide fake names, identities, facebook posts etc. for criminal reasons. His IP address has been reported for investigative purposes. This was a common game a few years ago; bored college students w...

Re: Calgary Police Service

Sigh. Ten million Canadians are out of work. 100,000 will be bankrupt in three weeks. 500,000 will have their RRSPs drained to nothing in three months. And here on Blue Line, applicants continue to ask questions that cannot be answered. Does NO ONE READ OR WATCH THE NEWS? We are in a crisis of unpre...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

While on the topic of firearms, and maybe this is a dumb question, but do RCMP officers keep their issued sidearm at home when not on duty? I seen a video recently that made it sound like once you are issued your sidearm it's basically "your" gun until you leave the RCMP. I always assumed your side...

Re: GENERAL CBSA APPLICANT CHIT CHAT

This is not entitlement. This is critical thinking being applied on a forum, intended to spark conversation about other experiences and about how CBSA can change processes for the better, especially for younger recruits which they claim to want so much. Let me tell you a secret. There are lots of e...
