Thank you for your help, I received notification today!
Can i ask where you did your interview?
Did mine in Toronto. I was given the choice between that, Milton and Orillia
Thanks for the response. I did mine at wellington county, i was wondering if the wait time depends on where you did it and the recruiter.

Is there anyone else still floating around here who applied in January and was not deferred, but has not received notice for the LFI? My file is still active and recruitment acknowledges the updates I send, but I almost feel like my application is lost somewhere in the large mass of applications they received lol. Perhaps the recruiters in my area have a long list to go through for LFI but I am just curious if there is anyone else with a similar timeline.

Patience is key, there are only 15 recruiters for all of Ontario!

As Cosmo suggested they are probably swamped with applications. If it helps I applied at the end of January and got file# couple of weeks later. I am still waiting for LFI date or deferral letter. :)

On the side note...Is Sigma test similar to PATI? I noticed that policeprep web site mentions that they have Sigma (Saskatchewan) practice tests. Any similarity between Sigma (OPP)?

Thanks :)

I'm with you there, same situation. They've got lots to go through so they'll get to them when they have time. Best of luck.

I did mine at Wellington County last week as well, still waiting for results. I guess it depends on the location too.

Found the Sigma more situational based and applicable to law enforcement. It was a little different from the PATI, less math for sure. There were some similarities like the mapping/route questions!

How would you prepare for Sigma then since none of us (majority anyway) do not come from law enforcment background?

You don’t need to have a law enforcement background necessarily to be good at the test, although it would help for sure. I would say have a good working knowledge of some common offences. The test also has questions that are judgement based, and you have to have the ability to pick out the common points from the scenarios in which the test bases questions on.

I would say the Sigma is more like the APCAT that the Alberta Police Services administers to applicants. If you practice both that and the PATI, you should do just fine.

Good Luck Everybody!

OPP Applicant Updates Thread

Postby yeboah96 » Wed Mar 27, 2019 5:34 pm

Quick question, if anyone is able to help that would be great... When at the end of the application process & assuming all goes well, are you notified if your file is proceeding to final review or are we just waiting for "the call", or a deferral letter at that point?

I was also wondering if anyone that applied in January has been told they are considered for the August intake. I've been told since my LFI that I'm being considered for the August intake so I assume it'll be some time before I hear back from recruitment (I'm completing my final semester of school so I don't mind August at all!).

Your response is appreciated.

My experience was no notification that you’re going to final review, just wait for the call or deferral.

Hard to say what class you’re being considered for. In my class there were people who got offers as late as 2nd week of April for that class.

Good luck

Are you told if you passed the psych/sigma and moving on to the next stage? How long is the wait usually?
