Re: RCMP Summer student program WTF?

d rock As I'm sure you can understand we have had people on here pretending to be police officers when they are not. You posted a bunch in 2008 prior to saying you were off to Depot (if I remember right) and then nothing until 2012. I invite you to provide your credentials and join the private foru...

Re: RCMP Summer student program WTF?

So what you're saying is that you're jealous you didn't get to be a summer student? You got it. I guess the other factor of concern is that these kids are 'working' their home communities (or neighboring). Then, when we get a call to cousin's, auntie's, or their own home, and are dealing with the S...

RCMP Summer student program WTF?

Gotta vent, the RCMP (where else?) aboriginal summer student program, seems like a bit of a waste of tax payers $. Twenty something $ an hour to essentially do nothing but make work projects, ride alongs, and to carry an extra set of cuffs, looks like a pretty slick gig. Especially when the RM's are...

Now that's a future S/Sgt. in the making.

Re: Retention Initatives from Service to Service

Retention Initiatives in the RCMP? Wow, that's news to me. As far a staffing goes, I thought it went more like "where would you like to go next?", you provide an answer, and then you hear " thats good, we have a spot over here for you..."

Re: RCMP moving question

I would say the 'easy' route would be for the 'former' home owner to have the current owner buy them out. Then no problem.

The arresting officers should have given him a stern lecture and sent him on his way...then followed up with the judge.

Re: RCMP D Div North Leave Restriction!!!!

In the Okanagan, members are restricted to 4 days of leave between May long and Labour day ... They work 12 hour shifts there right? so they still get 12 days off in a row by taking the 4? Does that mean only one block of 4, or only 4 at a time? I WISH I could be working 12's for the 4 on 4 off...

Re: RCMP D Div North Leave Restriction!!!!

So far nothing but a rumor. But, it was being openly talked about in Div HQ as an option (for North district, not the whole division). Gotta think that this close to summer and no announcement it will not be put into effect. I know of several members who would add that to the "reasons to patch ...

Re: Canadian police officers overworked, understaffed, stres

"May have to attend court on their days off"? No kidding, how about trials when you are on nightshift, having been called out, then catching an hour of sleep before heading in to sit and wait to testify for three or fours hours. THEN being asked to go track down one of your non cooperative...

My best 'apology' letters have come from a Freeman. Hard to read and follow, but a good laugh.
