Re: Applying to Police (Is arson related work good on resume

I will offer this bit of advice: It is fine to have an interest in a specialized area of policing, but understand that those spots are earned after years of general police experience and are usually keenly competed for within the organization. You'll need to sell yourself as someone that would be a ...

Re: Chev Caprice coming to Canada

GM; I mpala V6; I actually really like this car and given the interior room, price, and fuel efficiency, I don't know why they're not more popular. The FWD is certainly a contributing factor, and you can notice it on the course, but it's a very respectable police vehicle. Love the sightlines, firm ...

How full of yourself do you have to be to have the sleeves on your shirt taken in? Pssst.....your biceps aren't anything you need to draw attention to. :roll:

Re: Man’s 19 drunk driving convictions prove system is broke

Simple odds suggest that someone who's actually been convicted 19 times is probably drunk every single time he drives. But now that his license has been suspended for 15 years, that'll take care of him. :roll: This guy probably hasn't had a valid license ever.

Re: Nice to see the media get one right!

I've been to many an autopsy where the weapon causing death was an ordinary crappy kitchen knife. And the victim isn't hacked to pieces, either. I'm talking about one wound that could be mistaken for a non-lethal injury that caused death within a couple of minutes and it wouldn't have mattered if EM...

Re: Security in preparation for RCMP?

Let me throw in my .02 cents and say that, in my experience, recruiters don't put a whole lot of stock in "related experience", i.e. security, LE, or quasi-LE experience, in the same way that having experience with guns, experience with self-defense or martial arts, or experience wearing s...

Re: BC RCMP Accelerated Recruiting 2013 - Women only.

APREP is harder than the PARE by far. You could walk the PARE and still pass. APREP has an added grip machine, plus a body pull. It has a fence like thing in which you have to haul yourself over. I am sorry. I was thinking of POPAT not PREP Thanks for your thoughts tho. So, PARE vs POPAT anyone? Th...

That's a pretty detailed description of the testing. You didn't by any chance sign a non-disclosure agreement did you?

Re: 20 misconceptions TV taught us about police

My favourite activity when watching a police drama is to announce the estimated number of hours of paperwork required for each activity performed. My wife unfortunately doesn't see how this enhances the experience.

Re: Ontario ombudsman outs Durham police officer

It's sad. In my province the Ombudsman position has always been very non-partisan, discreet, and I believe serves a useful purpose. This clown is off the rails.

Re: Ontario ombudsman outs Durham police officer

It just gets better and better. Thanks for the apology. It was heartfelt and I accept it. Now let me trash your workplace. In my neighbourhood, if you accepted an apology, that was the end of the matter.
