While on the topic of firearms, and maybe this is a dumb question, but do RCMP officers keep their issued sidearm at home when not on duty? I seen a video recently that made it sound like once you are issued your sidearm it's basically "your" gun until you leave the RCMP. I always assumed your sidearm isn't something you take home with you after a shift.
There is no such thing as a dumb question. On the other hand, THINK about the question you just asked, and the implications of anyone answering that question on an OPEN and PUBLIC forum. Do you not even care about the safety of the officers you may one day be working beside?

The answer to your question. You will find out when they deem you need to know. Not before.

Is it really fair to accuse me of not caring about the safety of officers just because I asked a question? There are plenty of ways to answer my question without that nonsense, but thanks anyway :roll:
To be fair man has got a point. You don't know who out there has bad intentions, even for firearms owners it's a touchy subject due to the fact that someone may want to steal your guns for what ever reason. Plenty of folks who are legal firearms owners have been burglazied and often times the people knew there were guns inside one way or another. Same goes for police officers.

Hello ladies and gentlemen,

I am currently going the RCMP application process. I was also thinking about applying for the OPP to increase my probability of success. My question is would this look bad on my part as an applicant? I would still pick the RCMP but I know nothing is guaranteed.

Thank you!

Apply wherever you want to work. I'm not in recruiting, but I highly doubt they're gonna put your paperwork on the bottom of the pile just because you have more than one application in.

And to move on and end this up. Im going to ask the following.
Is the 5km and 8km running still part of the chart of sucess in the physical requirements ? Or just PARE is the mandatory requirement ? Also how much running cadet runs on regular basis .. thanks

PARE is the only hard PT benchmark. That being said, of you dog the runs or don't improve, they'll give you a hard time. I'm a pretty big runner and I improved short distance way more than I thought I could. If you're not tasting blood during/after the run, you have more to give haha

I served in the army for 6 years.. all what we have done was running. And honestly theres nothing I hate the most than running lol especially when you start losing your gainzzzzz 💪💪💪 so I hope PARE is the only thing they focus on.

Minimum 2 cardio workouts a week, plus whatever mandatory pt they put you through. You gonna run.

Most of the time do excellent with cardio .. the only thing that bothers me when my running is more frequent is shin splints. Too damn painful

Anyone know if we can bring supplements to depot? Such as pre workouts, creatine, protien etc? My FC stated I would have to ask medical but has anyone brought these supplements or similar ?

As said above the only benchmark currently is the PARE. You will run a few 5k and 1 8k run thoughout your time at depot. On average I run approximately 15 to 20k a week. I'd suggest you start running before depot also get a few good pairs of compression socks to wear after hours on your runs.

Do they still have other benchmarks? And the superiors? Can you still get on the wall for various things?
