Re: Edmonton Police Service Recruiting

I wouldn’t worry about those scores much. How you do in the application process is what really counts.

Re: Edmonton Police Service Recruiting

I would expect delays in all processes right now due to the covid-19 outbreak. All focus will be on maintaining continuity of operations, part of that obviously includes avoiding all unnecessary social contacts to ensure membership stays healthy.

It is really and sore and aches a lot but it does go away by taking an Advil so I don't think its that serious. Is it possible that the muscles above ankle are being overworked? I am older so that might ...

Re: Edmonton Police Service Recruiting

This board is too quiet! I had a few questions Fitness is one of the biggest things that we need to prepare for class, is there anything else we should be actively doing specifically to prepare ourselves? Would setting up a ride along be beneficial even if I am in the later stages of the process? e...

I was also going to get a training session from a local former RCMP officer who offered. Didn't think it could be that much different from th...

Re: EPS service pistol

Can anyone tell me what the Edmonton Police uses as it's service pistol? I've recently put in my application, and although I have my RPAL, I still haven't purchased a handgun. So I figured I might as well try the EPS one! I'm optimistic about getting hired, so I may just buy one. It would allow me ...
