So I'm interested in applying to Peel Regional Police. Today I visited their website and noticed you can apply either for cadet or constable. What's the difference? My understanding is, you apply as a cadet, pass your courses there, train with officer for some time and then become a police officer - constable, in other words.
Could someone please explain the difference to me?
What should I apply for? Here's little background:
I'm 24, newcomer (well, came here in 2004
) so I have an extra language (Polish), I started university 2 years ago but I'm not feeling like it's leading me anywhere (not seeing too many job opportunities, and not really interested in what I'm studying). I've been thinking of joining police since I came to Canada
. So, I've got two extra questions here:
-what are my chances (I'm above average with physical fitness and I'm doing ok at school so I think I should be able to pass the tests...)
-is it possible that I finish my university after I get the job as police officer? I don't want to really waste the two years I already completed and thought of finishing it part-time while already gaining experience as a police officer. I ask this because I know that it's a shift job - would they allow me to be off all mornings/evenings for 4 months each semester?
Thanks for responses!
