Congrats!! So they called to say you have a conditional offer of employment? Are they bringing you on as a cadet until OPC resumes?

17 days as a recruit constable.
OPS has been amazing I would recommend to anyone who wants to make a difference. Work with progressive, innovative and community oriented service. Looking at the individual for real through the process.
I tried for almost three years before that in BC, so when I applied to OPS I was all ready to go. Learned from past rejections, all paperwork ready to go on one click.
We are going to OPC mid-June, right now I'm doing my pre OPC training. Ethics, POA, use of force, fitness, fed stats ect...

It was all worth it in the end.
Grateful and thankful to be serving and protecting Ottawa. It's an honor and privilege.

Congratulations to everyone else who got in.
If you are still in the process don't give up.

It's a very noble profession.

A fine example of pre street optimism haha.

Check back in 2 years and we’ll reevaluate those adjectives.

Being positive and excited is one thing, and being appreciative of the service taking you on is good, but don’t set yourself up for disappointment by strapping on such rose coloured glasses.

Friendly tip to everybody (and I say this with the best intentions) don’t talk this way before doing an actual day of the job. Just comes off arrogant and naive.

Sincerely, best of luck with pre OPC, OPC and Post OPC (the hills to climb before you actually start serving and protecting Ottawa).

I applied to OPS February 10th. They finally got their new application system up and I was notified on the 28th of February to resubmit to which I did. Still waiting for a response. Pretty sure they're busy dealing with all the applicants who have applied in the last few months and they're dealing with the issues that Covid-19 has brought.

I heard they streamlined their hiring process but I just have the impression it will not be moving as fast as they're hoping.

Pre OPC training?
Is this something that OPS has prepared for you? Have you received information that OPC WILL be open mid-June?

I've been hired by a smaller municipal service, however they have not been given any information other than June being the target date. Will update here when I have more information.

Regardless, congrats and see you in the future!
