Hey everyone, quick question.. does PEEL do the MMPI-2 and PF16 or just the MMPI-2?

Once a LFA date opens up I can plan on starting their process... I find the things fill up so fast though!

Thank you.


I received an email stating I was successful about two weeks after the LFA. It's now been four weeks since I sent in my personal history forms and haven't heard anything yet.

I was called exactly six weeks after my personal history form was submitted. So you will hear soon I'm sure.

I didn't know PRP does the PIN test still. I thought the ATS was sufficient enough and I didn't see it mentioned in their recruiting process on the PRP site.

They do a fitness test before the board interview. And the fitness test is a combination of both the prep and the pin. If you decide to sign up for the PBQ/LFA, they will explain it then.

Is PRP the only one who do this in the GTA area? I don't think Toronto, York Regional Police or OPP do their own PIN test.

Only reason I'm asking is, I did pass the PREP test for ATS but I had a hard time. It wasn't easy for me. I heard the PIN test is twice as hard so I'm gonna have to do more cardio and endurance exercises.

York also does a fitness test before they give you an offer. And it is also a combination of the PREP and PIN.

As far as I know York and Peel are the only two that do this... Toronto does not and OPP as far as I know doesn't either.

Some people find the PREP harder and some people find the PIN harder. But considering you will have to do both together for York and Peel, if you get that far, then yes it will be substantially more difficult, so start increasing your fitness levels.

I think London (Ontario) Police also does the PIN test for police applicants.

They have an illustrated guidebook of the components and scoring charts on their website which is also helpful.

Does anyone have any good stretches or exercises that can help with the trunk forward flexion? I'm not the most flexible but I would like to improve on that.

Reach for your toes for a solid 20-30 seconds. Then stop for 5 seconds. Repeat as many times as you'd like. The more you stretch any muscle, the more mobile it becomes. That's all there really is to it - muscle memory.

You can do this either standing up or sitting down.

Nobody including those inside Peel Regional Police understand why the PIN test is still a thing.

I'm sure the guy who just knocked over a liquor store is going to challenge you to touch toes to see who can stretch the furthest instead of legging it. :banghead: :crazy:

Interesting. It does show an overall level of relatively high fitness though. So I can understand why it's used as a standard. But yeah they could easily use other means as well.

All the Peel Regional members I've spoken to (current serving or ex) don't seem to agree with the notion that it shows an overall level of relatively high fitness. They would rather see the shuttle run jump from a 7 to a 9 or 10 as the bare minimum.
