Hey guys, was just wondering if I could get some in sight on out of province applicants. I talked with OPP and Ottawa Police Service, both said they will do all the application stages in one week (pbq, interview, psych, etc, as long as your successful at each stage) then send you off. Does anyone know if TPS would do that as well?

Thanks.

Send TPS recruiting an email. Better yet. Give them a call. I’m sure they’ll let you know.

Any answer on here is going to be hypothetical at best. Services are constantly changing procedures.

My guess is that they will likely accommodate out of province applicants somehow. But.. they very well may not.

I wish you all but the best, unfortunately, I won't be going to the upcoming class.
I did my Psychological Assessment June 14 and I got my "Letter" Friday 21, 2019.
I have to wait one year to be able to apply to TPS again.
Good Luck!

I have an interview coming up for the Special Constable position with Toronto. Does anybody know what it means by the technical component of the interview? I have been trying to prepare for that portion of the interview but am not sure what to focus on.

You won’t be disappointed with PolicePrep. That’s all you need. You’re on the right track.

Hey guys,

I have a question for anyone who’s been through Toronto Police College. What is the policy for facial hair. Clean shaved or is neatly kept facial hair okay?

Re: Toronto Police Service Information session attire

Is there a recommended attire for YRP/TPS information sessions? I read that a suit is recommend for interviews which makes total sense. In this case it those are just information sessions.

How do you want to represent yourself to recruiters? Your attitude, demeanor, and presentation are scrutinized at every stage of the process, including information sessions.

When I attended the information session, I went with my dad wearing "normal" clothing. Polo shirt and shorts. Nobody is going to care what you wear unless its something ridiculous or you have some inappropriate shirts or clothing. Just use common sense or dress like how you would go on a date lol. Aside from that, there were many who wore a suit and tie which was beyond ridiculous in my opinion.

Information session is literally what it states. Its a presentation for YOU. They want to give YOU information. Just shake the hands to whomever you speak to, dont be afraid to make a joke. I'm contemplating of stapling a picture of my dog and Bob Ross on my application form.

This is bad advice.
