Re: Volunteer or work?

Applicants in my opinion should avoid quasi law enforcement type jobs such as: Boucer Security Loss Prevention You can do just as well in the application process if you work a trade or doing anything else. Those kinds of jobs put you at unnecessary risk. In this day and age where we are under the mi...

Re: How do you know you're ready?

If you look at the requirements for application to the organization that you want to apply for and you meet those standards you should apply.

A big part of being successful with a police application is sticking to it until it works out.

Re: Medical Marijuana Script

In my opinion the marijuana train has left the station and is heading towards being legal. Good or bad it will be interesting to see how our respective organizations treat it during the application process as it becomes legal. It has been awhile since I have applied anywhere and I don't remember the...

Re: Medical Marijuana Script

Just thought of this while going through this post:

What will happen when and if marijuana becomes legal? How will that affect applications to policing agencies? It will be interesting that's for sure.

Thoughts?

Re: Appealing a Deferral

On the other hand the opportunity to work and live anywhere in Canada is a huge plus in my opinion. The chance to possibly transfer anywhere is a huge positive.

Re: Appealing a Deferral

I agree with that, but sometimes people are under the wrong impression. I work with a guy that left during depot and he was telling me that all through the recruiting process he was told he would likely get placed in X due to staffing levels anyway. Then he found out he was going to the middle of n...

Re: Appealing a Deferral

Sometimes the organization doesn't get all the information or they make a genuine mistake. The recruiting system is human after all. I appealed mine and my deferral period was reduced and I was given favorable re-insertion benefits. It worked out for me. Caveat: My issue was at the medical stage and...

Re: Appealing a Deferral

If the deferral is for a short period I wouldn't appeal. Only if it's for a longer period then I would put it on paper. Otherwise it's not worth it.

Re: RCMP Alberta applicants

"K" Div is the place to apply. We have a very low amount of applicants due to the way the economy is. Standards aren't lowered just a smaller pool of applicants to choose from.

Re: RCMP-Suitable Age

A policing agency can't even consider your ago in a hiring decision. I could be wrong but from what I have heard an applicant's file is compared to set standards and either exceeds those standards or they do not. I don't think age comes into it in this day and age.

If you need more time to get to your first posting talk to your detachment commander. I was fortunate to get a couple more days before I had to report.

Re: psyche test/ Free time

I don't like the MMPI 2 I think it's a BS test. I've written it lots and I don't think it's accurate. Mind you I don't have a background in psychology and I don't trust psychologists. A through and comprehensive background reveals more about a person and their tendencies in my opinion.
