Question on police recruitment.

Postby Tony1983 » Tue Sep 16, 2014 7:43 pm

Hi.
I'm thinking about joining the Toronto police force, and I have a few questions.
I'm 32, I don't have a criminal record but I do have a few background check problems, a ticket for driving uninsured, a complaint filed by my ex wife, and a suicide threat (unfortunate misunderstanding ) and a couple of minor traffic tickets on file.
I am an electrician, I speak fluently 4 languages and have been doing community service for over 4 years.
How big a problem would my background pose in the hiring process?

Sorry.

You are not a candidate for Policing.
If you do not have access to the private side please do not contact me. I do not give employment advice other than what is publicly posted.

You'd likely be alright, if only you were not an electrician.

It's not if you win or lose, but how you place the blame.

Seriously.
How bad is it?
On a scale from one to ten, 1 being immaculate record, 10 being convicted of a crime.

At least an 8.
When things get bad, I take comfort in knowing they could always be worse.

Look up my "The Sad Truth Cannot get hired" thread. Then you come back and tell us what you rate yourself as based on your competitive factor.

I've had a pretty eventful life, and everyone likes an underdog.
Maybe the interviewers will too.
I do know it's un uphill battle though.
