Shifts? York Region Police

Postby matt7120 » Thu Nov 04, 2010 11:52 pm

Could someone please tell me how the shifts work at York Regional Police. What i am asking is how long are the shifts, how many days off in between. How the split between days, afternoons and nights works. Just, generally how the work shifts are setup.

Thanks. Matt.

My brother left here 8 years ago and he was working 12hr shifts then. 2 days, 2 nights, 4 off. It may have changed since

Otherwise, expect a 7 day rotation with 8 hour shifts for Toronto, Peel, Etc. 7 Days on, 4 off, 7 Nights on, 3 off, 7 on, and so on.


Are Peel and Toronto not working tens?

Here is an calender example of the 8 and 10 hour shifts.

Personally, I think this schedule is great and wish I had it, provides for a lot of days off to actually enjoy your personal life.

that's a HORRIBLE schedule!! 2 days off between afternoons and days???? 7 nights then only 5 off?????? BRUTAL.

4 on 4 off is the way to go.
When things get bad, I take comfort in knowing they could always be worse.

I worked that exact 35 day schedule for 4 years, 2 weekends off every 5 weeks. We still work this schedule at our central cells, it sucks. 7 nights straight is a tough go, then you lose about 3 days to get your body to switch back. So really, 3 normal days off, not 6. I'm happy to be back on straight days (just over 1 year now) and I hope I never have to work shift again. 9-5 rules mon-fri :thumbsup:

4 afternoons (thursday - Sunday)
2 days off (monday,tuesday)
3 days (wednesday-Friday)
2 days off (saturday,sunday)
3 afternoons (Monday-Wednesday)
2 days off (thursday,friday)
4 days (saturday-tuesday)
2 days off (wednesday,thursday)
7 nights (friday-thursday)
6 days off (friday - wednesday)
repeat.

Apparently the Continental was the best.
2 days on 2 days off. 3 days on 3 days off. Every other weekend you got off.

Five-Four is by far the best schedule I've worked. Even better than four on four off.

Weekend of days, weekend of nights then two weekends in a row off.

So you'd be the following:

Monday - Days
Tuesday - Days
Wednesday - Nights
Thursday - Nights
Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday, Tuesday - Off

Wednesday- Days
Thursday- Days
Friday- Nights
Saturday- Nights
Sunday - Nights
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday - Off

Friday- Days
Saturday- Days
Sunday- Days
Monday- Nights
Tuesday- Nights
Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday- Off Start back and block one the following. Two stretches of five days off and one stretch of four days off.
