I have my interview coming up as well.

YRP released the 2010 budget on their website.
They have approval for 31 officers and 11 civilians.

For the whole year?
That doesn't sound right.....typically York hires 20-30 per class, which would mean 90 or so per year.

I believe York was approved for an additional 30 officers, but that is on top of the retirements and officers leaving to other forces or careers. So it could translate to an additional 10 to the already 20-30 on average per intake. This is the way I interpreted it though because 30 for the year does not sound right.

"In keeping with York Region’s population growth, 31 officers and 11 civilians will be added to the service in
2010, with all 31 officers going to frontline patrol duties."

From their 2010 Police Budget.

Take it as you will, it could be on top of whatever their annual hiring numbers are, or it could be just 31 officers.
It's been a bad year for any business and as it stands, a police service operates like any other business with budgetary constraints and expenditures.

My inclination is that it is an additional 31 to compensate for the population growth in the region. Others will be for officers that are retiring.

BTW, I received a call today for a Jan 7th 2010 Pre Screeening Interview. (I applied in Nov)

how is there any room for interpretation here? It says plain and simple that 31 officers are going to be hired, not that 31 additional members are being hired.
When things get bad, I take comfort in knowing they could always be worse.

Not to beat a dead horse or state the obvious but additional also means "added".... I've lived in Vaughan for 15+ years, believe me, they are ADDING staff.

no it doesn't it means "in addition to". there is a difference. If the statement said "31 officers will be added in addition to XX number of officers", then all you hopefuls could get your panties in a bunch. But it doesn't. It says "31 officers will be added" which means 31 officers will be hired.
It's bizarre how people can read into a statement depending on what side of the hiring coin you are one.

I called today, they are hiring more than 31. The statement means squat.
