Re: Armed Security Question (Armored Car)

So is this a "normal" uniform for the delivery boys now?? Absolutely could have passed for a copper 100%...I though there were some rules out there about security guards and the like trying to dress up and play copper? He is a law enforcement professional like you, so what's the problem? ...

Re: Counterintelligence (CI) Reading List/Club

That stuff is fine, I guess, but I prefer my collection of Enyclopedia Brown, particularly those stories where he thwarts Bugs Meany.

True. They told me I'd be the last they'd hire for quite some time.

BTW, that original post was fantastic, some creative people are wasting their time on this forum, just go straight to Hollywood.

Not me, man. I would have said, "Pickle WHAT?! Are you guys nuts?!"

Yes, but I'm still stuck on this ideal police candidate missing his court date so he could hang out at the beach. That was gold.

Re: OPP Training

It's not 8-4, I'll tell you that... I don't think it's appropriate to talk about it though. Part of the experience is not knowing what to expect next. Toonces was just curious....Not planning on applying or anything. Hubby is on with TPS. Sure, today he may be with TPS, but in a few years when the ...

Re: Ministry Security Training Entities

I know Algonquin College has some part time courses that apparently lead to a security license, but its $1000 for four courses, that don't total 40 hours of required training time (as told by the Ministry). I'm in Police Foundations as well. K. If you are in police foundations do you want to be a c...

Re: Armed Soldier in Public

It is just the context that this country seems to provide that made the situation seem odd or out of place. I hope to God that that attitude changes, trust me.

Re: Hospital Security

Mall security are very much law enforcement, in much the same way my dental assistant is law enforcement. After all, she has statutory authority to clean my teeth, and routinely apprehends dangerous bacteria.
