Re: Hired!

Starting my 15-week training with GO Transit as a Special Constable (Transit Safety Officer) very shortly. Excited and nervous at the same time. 5 years of contract security life and applications to a few services, I am hired. Honoured and proud to join GO Transit. I've heard good things about GO T...

Re: Exploring out of province/country law enforcement option

"A couple of arrests" when you were younger will hurt you anywhere you apply. No service is hurting bad enough for that to not be a siginificant issue. A poor driving history alone is going to be a barrier for you. You are underestimating the competitiveness of the job. I would see how you...

Re: Toronto Police Service

His 'attitude' comes from years of dedicated and (as apparent here) thankless service. His complaints about people he's expected to trust with his life is, I don't doubt, warranted. Millennial with no life experience versus what? Baby boomers like yourself with horrible attitudes? Guess which one so...

Re: Toronto Police Service

Interesting news: m If they do open up, I'm sure preference (as it should) will go to all of those rescinded job offers from that last class? Except for those who got picked up else where. I wonder how that would work. Update: Seems John Tory has confirmed it. http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/toronto/...

Re: Edmonton Police Service Recruiting

Anyone out there have any words of wisdom for the upcoming tsunami of information and change myself and my fellow recruits and about to be hit with? The first week is physically and mentally exhausting. From a stress day, the green man challenge and river valley run, it will be draining. Not to men...

Re: I was not able to get hired

Previous coworker who applied 13 times to the same service, he finally got hired. He is now a Detective. Do they want to see how badly someone want it and that's why they failed him so many times? That would be a silly reason to defer someone. The real message there is that you may not be the right...

Re: RCMP Alberta applicants

Hello - any Edmonton applicants looking for a workout partner? That sounded a bit weird. I was deferred about 6 months ago and would be interested in getting with someone to work out with for extra motivation for the rest of the deferral. It's nice if someone is working toward a similar goal Thanks...

EPS is essentially the 5th Battalion of the PPCLI. You should give them a look.

Re: Auxiliary Officers Pay

Good evening all, Can someone tell me whether Auxiliary Police Officers are paid an hourly rate or any financial compensation for the service / commitment they provide? Or are they full volunteer status in the sense of non payment or even expenses? Hope someone can help with this. Thanks *Edit - In...
