Good afternoon,

Is it normal to have the field investigation commence before having the med/psych appointments scheduled?

TIA
mine has commenced before Med/Psych so I believe it is normal.

I'm pretty sure they were doing mine before the mandatory shut down and I haven't done my poly yet.

Mine happened while my med clearance was pending and prior to my psych and finished well before med clearance was issued.

Looks like some staff aren't too happy that training is contiuing at this point. I can't begin to fathom the inner workings of a training program of this scale. Halting training, do you send all the Cadets home for 2 to 4 weeks? Or, do you wait until there is a positive case in Depot, and now you have a virus running through Depot? It mostly sounds like if you're healthy you can usually kick it like you do the normal flu, so do you just let people get sick and move on? I don't envy the decision makers here. Some tough calls to make.

Good news is If your in security then your file is getting worked on. Slow but getting worked on. Bad news is this can set back alot of people in the process as well as troops.

"Update: RCMP Academy’s response to COVID-19
March 20, 2020
Regina, Saskatchewan

News release

As of 1:30 pm, March 20, there are no presumptive or confirmed cases of COVID-19 at the RCMP Academy.

RCMP Depot Division continues to work closely with provincial and national health agencies to monitor and respond to the situation.

The primacy of operations, and the safety of the public and our employees are our primary concerns.

In addition to suspending all public events, the RCMP Academy is taking, or has taken, the following measures.

At 4:30 pm on Thursday, March 19, most training at Depot ceased.

One troop, which has finished their training, will graduate as scheduled on Monday, March 23. The ceremonies will be closed to all visitors, including family. There will be no family orientation, chapel service or banquet.

Three more troops will complete their training and graduate over the next week under the same conditions. Their training schedules have been modified to permit this. This will enable the RCMP to deploy over 120 new police officers to front line operations across Canada.

All remaining troops are being sent home and a departure plan based on the availability of flights and other transport is now being implemented.

All incoming troops have been postponed.

Training will resume once cleared to do so by provincial and national health agencies.

Regular Members on staff who are deemed fit for duty may be re-deployed to front line duties in Saskatchewan or anywhere in Canada where they may be required.

It is too early to announce when public events may be re-scheduled. Depot Division looks forward to continuing with all public events when circumstances permit.

Just out of curiosity, the troops that are being sent home with a delay in training, are they guaranteed to return to training and their career once things “settle”?

How do you figure that’s the case? Departmental security screening for applicants is not an essential service. Anyone performing a non-essential service is being directed not to come to work and await directions as far as redeployment until this is all wrapped up. Members in DSU aren’t allowed to just take personnel files home to do security backgrounds in their kitchens.

Much like the Depot employees described in the press release Pete posted, the people in DSU are in the same boat. Everything is getting a big pause button pushed on it until further notice.
Don't call it a comeback...

While nothing is absolute and no guarantees are going to be made, the expectation is that when this all blows over the troops who were sent home will return to Depot and continue their training from the point where they had left off.
