Re: Applying to Correctional Service Canada

This is incorrect, the SJT is not exclusively online now, possible in certain areas, but not all encompassing. Hopefully not, I feel like it’d be way too easy for someone to cheat their way through it if they did it on their own at home. I also think that driving across the Province just to write t...

Hey!
What do BC correctional or peace officers carry on them?
Do they have guns or tasers?
Not sure about BC corrections, but just spray for AB corrections.

However, you do get a baton for medical escorts

Re: Calgary Police Service

Extremely upsetting news this morning from the Calgary Police Service regarding the passing of an officer in the line of duty on New Year's Eve. I knew this officer personally after a mutual friend connected us to set up a ride along to help me accomplish my goals of joining CPS. As a former member ...

Re: Ask a Sheriff

If you didn't get a call last week its highly unlikely that you will now. Yup... I came to this unfortunate conclusion :( I guess I'll go take a significant pay cut to go do some mall security or something similar job to bolster my résumé. Corrections is waiting for you my friend. You will regularl...

Re: Ask a Sheriff

Covid has created some turbulence with the available shift for wage employees. I haven't worked a CO shift in nearly a month. That being said, I understand the feeling of 'jumping ship' but the saving grace is that the CSD hasn't invested a huge amount of money on me by sending me to CO training in...

Re: Ask a Sheriff

It seems that they're transitioning their old job posting board to their new one, possibly to coincide with their switch from MyAgent to the 1GX system. It's probably going to take them some time to move all the postings over because all employees are likely familiarizing themselves with the new sy...

Re: GENERAL CBSA APPLICANT CHIT CHAT

Hi Everyone, I was in the process in 2018 and was screened out at the Psych Stage and had to wait 2 years before I could retake it. I have passed the two year mark and I was wondering if I have to go through all the steps as if I was a first time applicant or straight back to the Psych Assessment? ...

Re: Calgary Police Service

Word from exec is they want 140+ new recruits through a year for the next 3 years (which aligns with that action plan above). Friends in HR and the instructional groups are getting swamped with pushing classes through, but this might be one of the bigger hiring pushes we've had in the past 10ish ye...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

I shoot and collect, I like to run different handguns for periods of time, get proficient with each. Obviously if Im shooting comp (IPSC) I won't be running the RCMP SW, compared to as if your actually training for the job. I get if your limited on time and ammo you'd stick to one platform, but if ...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

And there might be those who disagree with this action, but you should familiarize yourself in shooting a pistol. I've seen a lot of cadets get terminated for pistol qualification. The reason why it is controversial is due to the fact that the RCMP trains you to shoot their way - but I would argue ...

Re: Question for applicants in Prairie Region....

Right now, Manitoba is in Code Red with all non esentials being restricted. That being said, it won't be forever. My question is, is there a place in Manitoba or Saskatchewan (Other than University of Manitoba) where the PARE Test can be taken? Thanks team I took a POPAT at the University of Regina...
