Re: EDiv A/Cst's petition to Minister of Public Safety

Interesting. Who decides which Auxiliary can do which tier? Also why the need to add "volunteer" to uniforms that already say "Auxiliary" on them? Do they think a criminal wanting to escape custody will care that the uniform says "volunteer" and opposed to "auxilia...

Re: EDiv A/Cst's petition to Minister of Public Safety

You can't just throw a person in the car and expect him/her to know how to properly handle themselves in public, on calls or what have you. More training is needed and more proper hiring too. Was the RCMP Auxiliary program lacking in good hiring practices and training before? The RCMP is a pretty l...

Re: Crossfit Workouts

Anyone doing the Crossfit Open 2016 in their boxes? Yep our box is doing it again this year. A bunch of us are buying tickets for the games this year too. Now that they've moved the games to Madison Wisconsin it's only a 10hr drive. A bunch of us from the box went to see the Invitational this year ...

Re: EDiv A/Cst's petition to Minister of Public Safety

Why waste time and money on some "3 tiered" system? If the vast majority of stakeholders want the Aux Cst program to be like it was before the changes it should be simple to reverse the changes and leave it at that no?

Re: PSP being sold

As long as it stops the ammo it's rated for and fits me correctly, who owns it isn't a concern. Quality and fit are the biggest criteria for me..... Agreed.....but on a side note....I've never had a bad piece of kit from Safariland. Our holsters are Safariland and that is arguably the best piece of...

Re: PSP being sold

Safariland is huge. They have bought many other LE product companies in the past.

Re: No Call Too Small Philosophy

The "no call too small" philosophy is similar to the garbage man episode of Simpsons. m Piling on more and more responsibilities onto police, means they need more funding. If citizens truly want police officers to show up to silly calls, then taxes will have to increase to fund it. Of cou...

Re: CBSA Boots?

Has anyone ever tried the Red Wing water proof boots or the Danner Stryke II EMS?? It seems Danner only makes 1 CSA boot. Meindl, Lowa, Hanwagg none of them make a CSA boot. The list gets pretty skinny when you get into a high quality CSA, weatherproof and black boot. The Danners fit great and were...

Re: Toronto Police - Modernization Changes

I think DW might be referring to web-based reporting modules. It's a hard sell to get the public to buy into them. They want a cop to take their report bc it provides them a sense of relief. Whereas web based reporting makes people feel like it's just a perfunctory action ( do it for the sake of do...

Every system I've used has an audible beep every ten or so seconds to let you know some of your lighting is still activated.

Re: New look for the Toronto PS

Unless they've played with the video it looks like the graphics in the YouTube clip are quite a bit lighter and "pop" more than what is currently on the grey vehicles on the street.

Re: Your opinion - By-law/MLEO Uniforms, PPE and Vehicles

There are By-Law Enforcement departments that do ACO work who are issued vests. I'm not sure about any strictly animal control departments who are issued vests, not in Canada at least, in the US some ACOs are very well equipped as far as vests, radios and UoF tools go. The Ontario SPCA Officers wea...

Re: New look for the Toronto PS

The chevron striping on the back is mandatory under NFPA standards for fire trucks over 8' high. I actually had a very small part in that aspect of the standard (not that anyone really cares). It's amazing how many police cars and other vehicles we see where they have the chevron upside down. (&quo...
