Re: OC vs. Pitbull

I've deployed OC on nuisance dogs in the past it never really seemed to have much of an affect. If it was a grievous bodily harm/death situation I wouldn't even be considering OC spray unless extraordinary circumstances dictated otherwise. "Pitbull" is a generic term used to describe any m...

Re: Thoughts on how to decompress?

I know when I first started and my eyes were opened to what really goes on on the streets etc, I couldn't NOT see it all (my English teacher is probably crying over that sentence structure). It was an almost overwhelming experience taking in everything. Going out for dinner was a totally different ...

If I say if, I make it trew the process, now in background stage. I am confident that whith my past employment, age, ethnical backgro...

Re: What do you guys think?

Miguel Carano is a Spanish citizen being tried in the Spanish legal system, no?

Edit: nevermind, answered my own question after googling him. His last name is actually Carcano.

Re: RCMP 5.11 Fleece?

A past detachment I was at ordered the Cascade fleece (POLICE on front/back) for all the members. These one's came with velcro where you have to attach your own RCMP patches. I think one of the main reasons it's not approved is because it's not made with fire retardent material. That being said I w...

Re: Can I pick your brains? Purchasing a new pickup for patrol

I've driven RCMP issued 2500's, F250's and F150's and in my opinion the 2500's and F250's belong on work sites and make horrible patrol vehicles. 3/4 tonnes is overkill and are built for hauling heavy loads and the ride suffers when they are empty. We've just made the switch to F150's and the differ...

Re: Frequency of firearms training on the job

We're required to do firearms quals yearly and that's about it. That being said we're encouraged to get out and shoot whenever is convenient for us, on duty or off duty. Being in a Northern post there is no range nearby but the outdoors provides us with plenty of safe shooting spaces within 10-20 mi...

Re: Cry me a River

I'd be interested to know what he had for travel insurance and if this is being covered. If so there are plenty of options in Mexico to receive the care he needs as long as he is willing to spend the money. But honestly this whole situation shouldn't have come to a shock to himself or anyone else wh...

Re: Education, now or later?

I can only speak from my experiences in the RCMP... But if I were you I'd pursue education now instead of waiting until you're in, especially at the undergrad level. I completed my undergrad before joining the force and couldn't fathom completing this as a member, especially if you are posted miles ...

Re: Over time pay as RCMP officer?

Well your fortunate to be in an area that is not non stop, enjoy the posting I'm generally not the type to moan about how busy my detachment is, but yea, generally it is actually non-stop. I'm not sure if your familiar with "F" div detachments but to put in perspective after speaking with...

Re: Over time pay as RCMP officer?

Outside my first few months where I would come in to work on the 40 questions, CAPRA project etc. i've never done any VOT and honestly I never feel the need to. I make sure I tie up all loose ends before quitting time that day and if a continuing duty keeps me at the office late I certainly claim it...

Re: What would you do?

Call her a cab or offer her a ride or stay with her until someone could pick her up. I'm very hesitatant to ever drive a female anywhere while alone, paranoid about potential accusations I guess. As far as investigations go, at this point I've really got no grounds for an impaired and as an officer,...

A bit different in Northern SK. where it's pretty much the two Cst.'s on duty that handle these things start to finish.
