Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

Well gang, I just received my conditional offer for Troop 20 starting Oct 2nd. Gotta say I am pretty excited and nervous all at once ! Anyone else going for Troop 20? I was first offered Trp 19 but given that it was in 10 days, I needed a bit more time to release from the military... can't wait! Co...

Re: Potential police applicant? Good applicant?

Ok I'll answer your initial question then. You're an average at best candidate on paper from what I've read. You meet some checks in the box, but most of the things you've listed (degree, minimal time in the military, I assume reserves) are a dime a dozen in police applicants. You have listed no vo...

Re: Potential police applicant??

And of course infantry training and experience are on parallel with the stresses of policing (in a different way) Unless you've deployed to an operational theatre, that statement is 100% incorrect. Did you only read that one comment, extrapolate what you wanted to hear, and then reply back without ...

Re: Joining the Winnipeg or Calgary police after military?

Guys trying to transition from the reg force are a dime a dozen. Being that your first contract is coming to an end that's what, 3 years in and probably still a pte? What I'm getting at is you more than likely have minimal courses, no tours, and nothing really being brought to the table from a milit...

Re: Honest opinion about my past.

I was asked if I had ever been suspended in school. My answer was "yep more than a few times for mouthing off"

That was the extent of the suspension conversation. They must not have cared because they hired me.....

Re: Canadian Military Police

It's happened before but it's rare. Basically you graduate, get handed a badge, then turn around and hand it in. If you're lucky enough to get a contract at a det (which I haven't heard of in years) you will pick up your badge when you show up for work and leave it in your locker when you're done. L...

Re: Canadian Military Police

If you think the MP's don't "serve a function similar to civilian police" you are 100% incorrect. Military police investigate crimes and lay charges like anyone else. My authority is exactly the same as any other police officer in Canada and when I arrest non military individuals or military members...

Re: Military Applicants

Your clearance in the military has zero influence on anything.

Your military experience is only as helpful as you are able to articulate. That said, it can also be a hinderance. I know of a few services where your resume finds its way to the shredder when they see military on it.

Re: Toronto Police Service

The point that you don't care about education is loud and clear, thankfully recruiters seem to care, and I'm good with that. Are you a recruiter? If you're not then you don't know what they do or do not care about. If you are, then you know what your particular service cares about, not others. Here...
