Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

Honestly, how infuriating is it to hear someone who hasn't done a second on the job try and belittle any form of policing, be it small town/large city/investigative or patrol. Anyways I don't mean to keep the hate train going. I actually applaud the RCMP for going against the fold when it comes to ...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

It amazes me how applicants (not all) think they got a free pass to critize the RCMP and have this expectation that the force owes them or some sort. Good on recruiting for making these changes to the process so that they can weed out the undiserables. Entitled applicants leads to entitled members.

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

Just saw all the changes they made to the process and I'm left speechless. I was expecting they would radically shorten and simplify both the recruitment and training, but instead they made it even longer and more cumbersome. https://www.rcmp-grc.gc.ca/en/how-to-apply The key point is that going fo...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

Oh okay, makes sense. Is it easier to get in with rcmp than it is for provincial or municipal? You need to do a WHOLE LOT of reading on these forums! Getting into the RCMP is only the first hurdle. I’ve been all over this forum and the search button has been mighty useful, where do you suggest I st...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

Quick question guys, I’m not here to ask the same questions that are usually asked but maybe ask some new ones that haven’t been asked before, so here we go. How did you guys know that you were a good fit for law enforcement? Where did you start? How did you prepare yourself for the process? A year...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

It’s you calling “many” front lines officers, that you don’t actually know, out of shape.

The PARE should also be a requirement for regular members as well as a yearly test to pass. Way too many front line officers who are simply out of shape. My polygrapher was well in his late 50s, and is running marathons.
Perhaps you should become a member before making such statements.

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

You’ve got to be shitting me that’s the time for the first one. Apologies, let me add to that so there will not be any miscommunication PARE 1 - 5:30 PARE 2 - 4:30 PARE 3- 4:00 At the end of the day, everyone needs to aim below 4 minutes. That being said, you are expected to improve on your PARE ti...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

Can't you power walk the PARE? What is the benchmark for the first attempt? One person didn't even finish it, the other person failed by a few seconds. Just because you hear from either the RCMP / other people that they have lowered the physical standards does not mean they aren't going to send you...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

There's no rush. Being 15 weeks in and my only advice is to enjoy the time you have with you family. It sure takes a toll. And be fit! I lost 3 people in less than a month on failing physical benchmarks alone, and there was another troop that had 6 people that failed the PARE on the first week! (Ob...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

Anyone doing the total opposite of training and letting their body rest up and heal while the gyms as are closed and everyone is staying inside for the most part? Work long shifts (essential service), have a stupid long commute, and for that reason I have a full gym in my garage (rack, bars, weight...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

My finger print appointment was cancelled due to covid 19, I was told to try and make another appointment in a couple weeks. Pretty weird to cancel the fingerprinting... isn't it just you and 1 officer doing fingerprinting? Yep. I have no desire to stand that close to someone if I don’t have to. I ...

That twitter post was hilarious and agencies should always try to be funny in a creative way. Police agencies should push on their social presence and connect with the communities through memes and dank memes.
Creative is the key word. Rehashing the same shit isn't creative.
