Just looking to get in contact with anyone going to depot for troop 12 in February
Don't do it.

Meet them there.
Forgot the most important part. Delete their contact information the day after you graduate.

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

Quick question about service time with the federal government; say I have 5 years with Correctional Service of Canada (CSC federal agency) will that time in uniform translate into any uniform time or some sort deducted time if I would join the RCMP. Things like seniority I would think would reset s...

Talk to Recruiting, but you MAY have to apply elsewhere; reality of life in the saddle.

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

When will your union be official ? And, anything worth Mentioning about where the union is fighting hard for something for the members that you didn’t have before ? If you're talking about our association, it was official last year. They are doing what one would think they are, dealing with grievan...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

Hey folks, former applicant here, now a regular member. I used to scan this board daily during my application process. I graduated in 2018. For those going thru this, keep it up. If you end up at Depot, don't give up, you can do it. A lot of it is just a mental game like running when you want to qu...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

And there's the key. It's like I wrote in my Guide to Deport which is still on here but a bit dated now - train at what you are bad at, not what you are good at. I had a former NHL player who came to Depot and didn't play hockey once while he was here. He knew he was poor at classroom work and coul...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

Great info Shawshank !! Very much appreciated. Did you come across biceps curlers in the squat rack at Depot haha ? Just me, but I have a basic rule - if you can squat more than I can curl, you can have the rack. Doesn't happen often LOL Dayum.. You're either Ronnie Coleman or you workout with bunc...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

Is the reason why you want to posted at a certain detachment considered? Or, is that a non-factor and only RCMP Operational needs are considered. Let's say there was an opening in fort mac and not a lot of my troop mates put that down as a destination. My sister and her family reside in fort mac so...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

Another reason why so few go to the territories compared to others is how many spots there are. From what I remember, there are more members in Red Deer City than in each of the territories.

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

Depends if you make your OCU facilitators mad Thanks, this is.. weekly? No, you'll do a 5km near the start and once again near the near the ...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

Maybe I’ll be shit on for this. Maybe not. But... if you are at depot and your troopmate is that guy that wants out... how does it effect you personally? Maybe I don’t see the big picture but... I don’t think if effects me at all. If that’s what they want to do. Just be a good troopmate that’s all ...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

If you get upset every time the CBC or any media posts something misleading or inflammatory against the police, you're going to have a very long career.
