Correct me if I'm wrong but didn't the RCMP put forward a new recruiting policy that basically stated recruits from the LMD will go back to the LMD once their training is complete? I'm not 100% certain this is correct, just recall reading about it a couple months back.
The RCMP was my first choice, but i really dont want to work in the middle of nowhere.
If you don't want to work in rural areas or the north you probably shouldn't consider the RCMP. The reason is simple, the RCMP specifically requests that you should be willing to serve anywhere in Canada, if not then the organization would lose another member because you don't like working out of Pinehouse, SK.

If any of the members of the RCMP want to correct me on this, feel free to shoot one across the bow.

Let me put this forward, I speak for myself, but I'm sure other police officers will feel this applies to them as well:

I do not come to Blueline to be supportive of applicants.

Not only that, but it isn't my job to be supportive of you just because you think you'd be a good applicant. I can form my opinion based on what information I have before me about you. If you don't like that opinion then tough titties, not everyone in the world is going to love you or necessarily think you're the perfect applicant. If you can't accept that them perhaps you should reconsider not only applying, but also using whether or not you want to be part of society because it's a simple fact of life that everyone isn't going to be your personal cheerleader.


I don't have to support you mainly because I can still hold out hope that there's a better calibre of applicant still out there who doesn't need to come on here and ask "where's the best place to volunteer so I can get hired," or "which one will pay me more money and give me better dental." Don't like that? Life sucks, get a helmet.
Good post.

I dont expect everyone to like me, or even treat me well, thanks. But all i simply ask is some respect. I know respect wont always be given to me, but I simply want to ask you guys because I thought you would know, and could maybe steer me in the right direction. I know the benefits really dont make the job, but they sure do help. I'm at a time in my life when I dont know as much as I should, and I wanted to look at people who could point me in the correct direction.

But thanks to all of yours for answering. Especially MarkS I will have to look into how to do an interview and "sell myself well" I will just try and figure out whats necessary to make a good officer.

What do you think?

What is with applicants who think we should all coddle them and hold their hands, guiding them through the process? Do you know how many people got hired before the frickin internet was around? LOTS!

What kind of questions will be asked at the interviews? I know it gives a very brief idea of what will be asked of you. But i want to more in-depth what they mean. Any WPS members could be of great help here.

You know, if you weren't a lazy prick who expected everything to be spoon fed for you, you could probably engage your brain and figure out what the questions will probably be like.

I'm not lazy, just ignorant. I really dont want to know everything, i just want to have a heads up. I dont live near a big police station where i can talk to officers. I wanted to go for a ride along with the RCMP but they couldnt find the officers when i did drive over an hour to get to their station. I do try , and i have talked to some when i see them in my town.

Was that suppose to help your case?

You do know blueline has a search function and Google is pretty good at digging up information? The information is out there you just have to look for it.
