because these folks are better than SROs

As a cradle RC, Separate system student (K to 8 - didn't want to pay tuition, or 1.5 hr bus ride), Dad / Grampa, and KofC (since 1986), this bothers me. As a retired member, I face-palm. As an ex-pat ON, I laugh.

My sarcasm meter just exploded lol
SRO's are completely needed in some schools where gangs, drugs, violence, and weapons are present.

Problem is (as others have mentioned) theres feel vs reals.
Media portrayal of feelings is so far off from fact based reality. They have really tried to push a falsely negative view on SRO's lately.
Afterall... the media is in the business of doing whatever it takes to boost newspaper sales. Journalistic integrity comes second.

Media Headline: 1 random member of public feels police are racist and don't make schools safe! (not an actual headline... but really not far off)
Also; grey vehicles for police are "intimidating and militaristic", yikes! Who is seriously scared of a paint colour?

Independent study: Data from 1300 students shows SRO's are "overwhelmingly positive" for student well-being.
Reduces student stress, reduces risks of bullying and harm, promotes attendance, makes teens feel safer and better able to learn.

I don't get all the hate.

They are clearly just as professional as FEDSEC, or Intelligarde, or any of the weekend Airsoft Regiments that are out there. :smirk:

I'm at the point now where anyone who asks me about a good path to LE is told to stay far away from security, and work a customer service job if they want to learn about conflict management and resolution.

TEll you the truth I’d think the window washing business would be more fruitful.

That is a technical job if being done for high rises.

A job I couldn’t or wouldn’t do.

Admit it. You've always wanted to drop a high-speed, low drag squeegee into a drop leg holster!

Perfect job for you. The body armor is going to look SO cool to all the ladies on the 39th floor and you can stick a TON of windex into those fake mag pouches.

Mind you, clownshoes window washing doesn't sound as good as clownshoes security.

In all seriousness, I would advise applicants to give this company a VERY wide berth. Recruiters are actually very good at their jobs and all the negatives about these people is going to come up. The first thing a recruiter is going to ask, is, "If you knew what they were doing, why didn't you quit?"

Get a job at McDonalds.

This company has already lost its licence previously for their many violations. In fact, when they first started up they operated without one and got dinged for that.

From what I hear, they are again under observation by the OPP licensing peeps.

Makes sense as they aren't following ministry regs relating to code of conduct, uniform, and vehicle markings.

Not to mention the privacy concerns with CCTV footage or covertly recorded arrests of people being posted to Instagram.

No way!

High angle window washing takes a certain amount of balls that I lack.

Kudos to those that do it. Especially in the window.

But a drop leg squeegee set up..........

As one of my sons remarked, "What kind of a wedding are people having when they have to have private security like those guys around?"
