I was an applicant with Winnipeg, RCMP, Calgary, and Edmonton, at one point.

I started training last August with Edmonton Police Service, graduated in February and have been on the street from that time having a blast.

All you applicants out there, chase your dreams...It's worth it!! :alright:

Like Newbie, Rho2 and RyanV, I too am in my third week at OPC after being hired on by the Waterloo Regional Police Service on April 19, 2004. I started this journey last July with the OPP and after making it to the background phase I was informed in December that all hirings were on hold. After learning the above I applied with Waterloo the first week of December and was hired on. I know the process can be frustrating but if you are the right candidate you will be hired by a service. My last piece of advice is be flexible, and apply to a few services because you do not want to pin all of your hopes on one service.
Good luck,

I too am starting my 3rd week at OPC. I started the application process with TPS in May of 2003.

To all of you who are still in the process, keep at it...good things will happen.

Good luck to all.

I got hired by Calgary Police Service. June training class.
It took me just over two years. I was deferred for a year and a half. I reapplied in Nov 03 and got the call in May 04.

Said it before, and I'll say it again...Congrats Boyscout!! Guess you don't have to start up a scout troop anymore... ;)

Thanks Jay

No Boyscout troop, but I think I will keep the nick name. Nice to remember what I went through.
Oh, I believe it was just over three years trying to get on with CPS.
Where does the time go :ponder:
