Still sounds better than the 4-8 man rooms during my military training lol
If you ask an old timer, they will be happy to tell you of the times where it was 32 in a room, 2 two a bed separated by a surf board.

Look up the youtube video "Tall boots to fill" and you'll see an example.

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

Are the rooms private or with roommate at depot? Thank you. Each cadet has their own room off a common hallway. The rooms are not completely private as the walls don't go all the way to the ceiling and they have a curtain rather than a door, but your space is not shared with anyone else. "Room." Mo...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

If you go back in this thread you can see there were periods where they didn't have many troops. I think as the population numbers grows, attrition and other factors contribute to the fact that there will constantly be a high demand for the foreseeable future. Who knows, I may be wrong and contract...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

Is there a larger recruiting demand? The media seems to let on like the RCMP is trying hard to fill positions. I also see the Alberta government wants more members in their province. Is now a good time to apply? Id be reapplying. I wrote the RPAB back in October 2014 and received a selection packag...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

Does the RCMP give an allowance for moving costs and time to find a place to rent. I know its extremely early to ask but it never hurts to plan head. Also would like to know the average rent cost in your respective division/location if any member or non-rcmp member could share for like a 900ish sqf...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

Just wanted to add a comment or two here regarding a question about being deferred. As to the question about why you were deferred specifically. RCMP Recruiting generally will not indicate this in deferral letter's. We have in the past but our new standard is not to. In terms of appealing or reques...

Re: RCMP Applicants Questions and Answers

I have a million questions to ask about what to expect when I get to Depot, what kind of trials I'll face both physically but also mentally. But at this point I feel over-saturated and I think I'll be taking things one day at a time from now on and for the foreseeable future. Cheers. Here's my take...

Re: Looking to Apply to Both regional police forces as well as the RCMP

I had a few 20 year olds in my troop. The one who took my original spot was 19. In terms of a plan, find what you would be happy doing as a second choice. Make that your first, and apply to the police. Many different paths can lead to a career in policing, but sometimes trying to force the path won't.

Oddly I will miss them when it happens. I'm sure they will just pop up under a new name and get right back to it.

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

Hello, I am just wondering if anyone on here has any insight on my situation. I have been given an offer for troop 31, of which I am very excited for. My spouse is in the Canadian Forces. We have done deployments, exercises etc etc. So we are very used to living apart, or doing long distance, and d...

To jiggz7 and any other worried about messing up, and just general advice going into the field, I will give you the advice that I got week one in the field - you are going to fuck up for the first five years, after that, stop fucking up. I make mistakes in the field almost daily, my coworkers make m...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

Just a few questions for those currently in or have gone thru Depot recently. When encountering a commissioned member, is it best to address them by rank, sir/ma'am, or is either acceptable? In the depot checklist it says to familiarize yourself with the Criminal Code, should I start memorizing jus...
