Vancouver Police Department or Calgary Police Service

Postby Avronator » Sun Jan 19, 2020 1:26 pm


This is my first post on these forms so I apologize if it is in the wrong section. So currently I am finishing up High School and have wanted to be a Law Enforcement Officer since Grade Two. I always just thought I would do RCMP, which in my opinion is a great option but at the same time, I want to choose where I go. I currently live in a small town just north of Calgary and am planning on going to Mount Royal for a Social Work Diploma before I apply to any departments. I am a pretty big hunter so staying in Calgary appealed to me but I wanted to try to keep an open mind and ask your opinion here. How would Calgary Police compare with Vancouver and any other police department in Western Canada? I am a Motorbiker so I am looking for a department with a good Motor Unit or a K9 Unit.

In my opinion I would apply to both and see which one offers you a job. Edmonton would also be a good office to consider as it is also well funded.
