I should have added that if any of you see a beard, assume the pushup position and start reciting the Judicature Act as loud as possible.

I don't want to jump the shark, but what is in all honesty the likelyhood of getting an opportunity to work in a different section of the sheriffs such as the executive protection, ASSIST, Traffic and such. I understand these positions are highly limited. Are the sheriffs going to be removing more units as they did with fugitive apprehension or is there any word of bringing them back or adding more?

Thanks

After your probationary period is up, you have every oppertunity to apply to any of these units..... If there are openings.

No word on units being created or being dissolved.

The opportunities are there - I got into a northern traffic position after just over a year on the job. There is a traffic class starting in April and one just graduated in December. Unless you have prior specialized military or police training ASSIST/Exec protection are tough to get into. If you're looking to get into traffic you're going to have to move north.

Okay thank you for the information. Would they take into account experiences like the army reserve? As soon as I have enough saved I want to get my eyes fixed and apply for 1 MP platoon here in Calgary for part time experience.
