Re: New RCMP staffing policy

Thanks for the clarification everyone. I thought just as much but the video claimed otherwise so that's why I wanted to get this forum's opinion.

Excited to relocate where RCMP requires me to and begin my career in law enforcement.

Re: New RCMP staffing policy

Here's an interesting video posted today actually regarding RCMP pay being brought up in the House of Commons.

Re: New RCMP staffing policy

I think there is a misunderstanding. Cadets do not get to choose their specific posting. The change they are referring to came in May 2016. Applicants from B.C., Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba can request to go back to their home province. Postings within those provinces, however, are still det...

Re: New RCMP staffing policy

New recruits should be willing to serve anywhere in Canada. RCMP website said that new cadets from Alberta, BC, Manitoba, and Saskatchewan can choose to go back to their home province . Detachment, which means city/town location is still assigned according to operational needs. (Unless this changed...

Re: New RCMP staffing policy

So, if I understand this correctly, an RCMP cadet fresh out of Depot (excluding recruits from BC, AB and SK who are allowed to choose their home province) doesn't have to go where they don't want to go. My question is then: are they allowed to pick? Or if they're assigned somewhere and they say no,...

New RCMP staffing policy

New RCMP staffing policy could make it harder to recruit officers to the north. Watch below.

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

Almost nine weeks now waiting for a poly date! Patience is a mantra I'm trying to stick to. I know they're probably dealing with ridiculous volume right now.. Kinda want to send her a muffin basket to say 'thanks'! I let my FC know a little over a month ago that I'm going to be out of town for two ...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

I'm at Depot right now and for those who are in the process, the wait is worth it! Yes it can take a while and be discouraging at times but even though I just made it through my first day (days are long and it feels like I've been here for a week), I'm really happy to have the privilege to be here ...

Re: Record Suspensions

I made this thread because I have spoken to more than one person within the last few months that have had serious charges and still are in law enforcement. It completely contradicted the posts I have seen on these forums. Granted, they were likely hired years ago before the recruitment process was ...

Re: Life as an RCMP officer in the West

The RCMP will pay for one vehicle to be moved. Additional vehicles (including boats, RVs, ATVs and motorcycles) are the responsibility of the member. Thanks for the clarification. One question, is vehicle re location covered each time RCMP requires it's employee to relocated? Or only the initial re...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

DISCLAIMER: The advice below are my own views. I do not claim to speak for the RCMP. Now that that's out of the way, here is my experience with the polygraph. People will tell you to be honest and I think we can all agree that that is a given. For me I found that the RCMP can forgive a lot of thing...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

Got my polygraph examination this Friday. Fairly skeptical as i've never been exposed to, nor have I even seen, a polygraph before or been involved in any sort of interrogation/questioning. Any words of advice? What do you mean by skeptical? And my advise would be just be honest and go with the flo...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

Hi All! Just wanted to say Hi, and I've been a lurker for the last six months as I have started this process. You all have been very informative and I have a feeling that I'm going to re-learn what patience means over the next year or so. Got assigned my FC today! By the looks of it for B.C. applic...

Re: Life as an RCMP officer in the West

If a cadet ends up in LDP or postings where theres alot of on call. and happens to be single, then he/she is making some serious cash and heavily subsidized force housing is icing on the cake. 115k to 120k a year is quite common. Smart ones will work their butt off for their first 3 to 4 years and ...
