Re: wilfrid laurier criminology

I graduated a few years ago. I loved the small campus and greatly enjoyed most of my courses. Whether it has actually helped my career or not? I don't think so, most training programs I've been in have a mix of handful of highschool, large number of college grads and a handful of university folks. I...

Re: Student law enforcement opportunities

I was also a Provincial Park Warden for the summer after I graduated. This is not a student job technically, but a lot of students land these positions. Amazing experience and fantastic training as a Park Warden. Its a shame there aren't more full time/year round positions out there. This. I was a ...

Re: City of Mississauga - Transit Enforcement

Arresting someone for failing to I.D for a by-law violation you are walking on a fine line..for TPA - prohibited activity the sign must be posted properly, I highly doubt any transit system has signs posted stating "Prohibited Activity-Refuse to I.D." For TPA, most utitlize it for Fail to...

Re: City of Mississauga - Transit Enforcement

For the role that transit enforcement has - you really don`t require special constable status, MLEO is sufficient. Any by-law violation you enforce where they refuse to ID, just arrest under TPA for engage in prohibited - if it`s a violation of the transit bylaw, it`s obviously prohibited at the ter...

Re: ASK A SPECIAL CONSTABLE

Apply and see what happens. If you get hired, most universities offer free education as a benefit to employees. GO Transit also offers an educational allowance if related to your current position. If you don't get hired, then go for the degree. Its a win-win situation really. A bigger win, of cours...

Re: Applying for Ontario Parks - Park Warden position

Honestly - just call the park directly and ask to speak to a superintendent or assistant superintendent - they'll give you a good idea of if they will be hiring or not, then ask if you can send them your resume. Most parks rarely post online at GOJobs. When I used to be a warden (7 years ago now) th...

Re: New PREP Test (ATS) - Effective October 31, 2015

The secret to the shuttle is just keep training cardio and don't give up. HIIT like Lara mentioned is a really good option if you despise running long distances. Myself, I'm really into distance running - twice a week (mon and wed) I'll run 8-10 km and then I'll do a spin class or something on my Fr...

Re: Municipal Standards Toronto (Hiring)

They offered me a spot last time but I ended up going elsewhere. I believe it was 4 months or so after applications closed before calls went out for testing, then another month or two after testing for interviews, then after that it was another month or so for them to start background checks and ref...

Re: New PREP Test (ATS) - Effective October 31, 2015

I hope it gets harder and harder, I'm young and fit so it won't affect me. The old folks tho, I think you are missing the point of the fitness test and ATS testing in general. Policing and other enforcement jobs are positions that require so many other skills to be successful, interpersonal, commun...

Re: 5.11 Tactical Stryke Pants

We have the option between the TDU and the Styke Pants so I've worn them both, personally, I prefer the TDUs and have found them to be tried and true so when uniform renewal time comes up, I just get all 3 new pairs in TDU (I mix up the materials, I have the heavier ones for Winter and the lighter f...

Re: Armed nuclear security officer - OPG

Top end is like 38 an hour area, slightly less than Bruce nuke which pays 40. I don't know what the hiring process is like, I know they used to have two separate processes (there was the regular NSO and then the Tactical NSO). As I recall the Tactical one where you made you do the FIT PIN with 80% a...

Re: Armed nuclear security officer - OPG

Do you currently have a family member or some other form of sponsorship in order to get permanent resident status? The only reason I ask is that you would need a valid work permit and OPG won't be able to sponsor you direct since they get enough local applicants. CPS and EPS were sponsoring UK offic...

Re: Armed nuclear security officer - OPG

I'm confused by your question. Are you currently a Canadian Resident or are you asking about getting an OPG/policing job as a direct from UK applicant?
