Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

There's no rush. Being 15 weeks in and my only advice is to enjoy the time you have with you family. It sure takes a toll. And be fit! I lost 3 people in less than a month on failing physical benchmarks alone, and there was another troop that had 6 people that failed the PARE on the first week! (Ob...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

Anyone doing the total opposite of training and letting their body rest up and heal while the gyms as are closed and everyone is staying inside for the most part? Work long shifts (essential service), have a stupid long commute, and for that reason I have a full gym in my garage (rack, bars, weight...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

My finger print appointment was cancelled due to covid 19, I was told to try and make another appointment in a couple weeks. Pretty weird to cancel the fingerprinting... isn't it just you and 1 officer doing fingerprinting? Yep. I have no desire to stand that close to someone if I don’t have to. I ...

That twitter post was hilarious and agencies should always try to be funny in a creative way. Police agencies should push on their social presence and connect with the communities through memes and dank memes.
Creative is the key word. Rehashing the same shit isn't creative.

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

I've been looking at a possibility of a LDP, now I am wondering is this something you can choose or does staffing offer it to you. What are the plus sides of the limited duration post? What are the negative sides. I've discussed it with my wife and she isn't opposed to it. Again, when you are at De...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

If anyone can elaborate on this, would appreciate it. Once you graduate and given your posting. 1) How much time are you given to find a place to rent. Is moving cost covered. Is there any financial incentives towards your rent for the first year. From what I've read, you are sometimes given a coup...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

Congratulations! I totally forget, do they tell you where you're going to get posted or is it after Depot graduation. You'll know a few weeks before grad. You'll have an interview with staffing first. Thank you! Do you mind elaborating on the interview part? Do they ask you where you want to be pos...

Time to hit the gym with 530 wake up?
At 7pm.

It’s quiet hours til 5am, and pending on the day you either have morning parade at 630ish or breakfast at that time. Plus you need your pit ready for possible inspections.

Re: RCMP VS CAF

Thanks a lot. I know it’s a tough choice and eventually it’s me making the decision, it’s just I’m not sure about the unpredictable future. If I were to turn down the offer from CAF, I’d have to start over again in case I wanted to get back in. And with RCMP, the selection process feels like foreve...

Hello everyone, I currently have my application in with TPS. I passed the ECI/LFI. I haven't received a call for the written and psychology portion. But the question is can anyone give me insight on the Written portion and what it entails?? https://academic.oup.com/occmed/article/59/2/135/1387433
