Re: Appealing a Deferal

You have to be brining some kind of new or relevant information to recruiting's attention that wasn't in the loop prior to the deferral if you expect them to overturn their decision. Just like in policing/court you have to have facts to support your reason not opinions. Being emotional or disagreein...

Re: Canadian Pacific Police Service 2012 intake

I'd be curious - are most of the laterals retired out of other agencies? I'm not sure about pay scales across the country but with the pay rates in BC for municipal agencies, assuming I've read the correct CP / CN pay rates, the reduction in wage would be significant. The laterals are a mix of both...

Re: Will British Columbia adopt Community Peace Officers?

As previously stated. Bylaw/minicipal law enforcement/ etc ARE already peace officers. Previous court rulings (yes multiple) only serve to solidify that fact. Now specific legislation provincially is a different story. I'm not too familiar with the province of British Columbia, however the Alberta ...

Re: Will British Columbia adopt Community Peace Officers?

I don't see it happening in BC. Alberta is a lot more pro law enforcement than BC. BC appears to keep peace officer powers for either police or provincial government departments(ie. corrections, conservation, cvse). Alberta had a long history of special constables long before the peace officer act w...

I guess they were having issues with information sharing when they were only security.

Nothing for new recruits. They have been hiring 1-2 laterals at a time to fill vacancies in various locations across Canada.

Re: Distance learning Police Studies in Canada?

I took the Lethbridge College CJ program in its early stages back in 2007. At the time you were unable to complete the entire diploma program online but I believe that has since changed. I really enjoyed the course and would recommend it. It's recognized out west by lots of agencies. You also are ab...

Re: BC Legislature arming their Security personnel.

Special constable appointments are a very rare thing in BC in comparison to places like Ontario or Aberta peace officers. Only provincial government agencies seem to be the exception to having s/cst appointments that I have seen(Commercial vehicle enforcement, liquor inspectors, conservation officer...

Re: Police application forms too prying, privacy group says.

Re: C.P. Rail Police Positions for EXPERIENCED Police Consta

Am I wrong in thinking that most experienced police constables would rather stick with their current agency rather than go work for CP or CN and deal with jumpers and trespassers all day? Even if you like trains, it seems like it would be kind of a crappy environment. There are pro's and con's with...
