BRANTFORD AUXILIARY INTERVIEW *need help *

Postby iNFAMOUS » Tue Aug 28, 2012 11:03 pm

Hi I am a potential candidate for the Brantford Auxiliary Program. I am currently 18 and tunring 19 on september 14, I have completed the phyiscal portion top 5 of the 60, and placed 4th on the aptitude. I have a question regarding the upcoming interview september 10th http://www.brantfordpolice.ca/sworn-rec ... ce-program. Does anyone have any advice they could share with me. I also have a concern on demerit points , and driving history. months have passed since my young and dumb mistake of a winter car accident where i was at fault, and 2 tickets which i recieved for going the wrong way down a one way worth 8 demerits. So my concern is will that get in the way of my interview. I have completed the prejustice certificate at mohawk college and am on the way to getting the Protection security investigation diploma. I am also progressing my way into the military reserves program (Argyll Hamilton) i also currently work as a security guard and continue to drive. So all together i would like to know if i will be able to make it into the police auxiliary with my current job / education and unfortunate driving history.

cheers,

Richard :alright:

In all seriousness though you may have done well in aptitude and fitness but you clearly have a disregard for traffic laws. If this happened 10 years ago it might be a different story but we're talking months here so it may as well have happened last week

Would a fire chief hire someone with a history of burning down sheds?

Common sense would tell you to smarten up and put some distance (read:"time") between you and your transgressions.

It's that little thing called "attention to details" that is so over-rated in police work :roll:

Well, I for one appreciate the large text.

( :(( Having older eyes sucks.)

Whatever happened to aux being folks who just want to volunteer with the police service in their community but aren't considering a full-time career in policing? Am I the only one who still looks at it this way?

Anyone who has 8 demerits at 18 years old should be asking for advice on how to not get their drivers licence pulled, not on their future career as a police officer.

Driving is a privilege which you have obviously not respected yet. You don't even deserve to be on the road.

You dug yourself into this hole; get yourself out. Come back in ten years and PROVE how you have matured and learned from this experience. (The fact that you have even been allowed to take a police foundations course when you don't have the slightest hope of becoming a police officer for many years is also kind of scary.)

How you respond to the advice you have been given on this thread will illustrate how far you are going to go in your future career. You can get mad at us and just leave the forum thinking we are all idiots ... or you can LISTEN to what we are saying and take positive steps to improve your maturity and your sense of responsibility and find a way to completely turn around your attitude.

Your choice.

Police recruiters are very good at spotting those who have a true sense of maturity and those who just fake it.

edit - the wrong way down a one way was a huge mistake because i was downtown picking up my friend from a club. I myself don't know my way around down there so it was totally my fault for not using a gps. The ticket was a count of careless / disobey officer (6+2).

On the other hand do you have any advice on what i should do from this point forward? At this point i'm looking at joining the military reserves still and its argylls (infantry) build experience and earn money, then eventually to join the military as a Military Police Officer. The educational part is PSi at Mohawk college which im enrolled for as a paid co-op student so i can choose the aux or military for the experience. And finally any advice for when i go to the auxiliary interview. I understand driving is one of the greatest privilege's and practice elite levels of caution when driving to work / rugby / and the gym. Thanks for all the responses , still looking for advice on these topics though.

Cheers,

Richard :alright:

You need a GPS to know that a street is a One-Way?
Can't read signs?

Nice try.

One doesn't get 8 demerit points for just driving the wrong way down a one-way street because you were lost.

Trying to deceive people here in this forum is not a good way to embark on a law enforcement career. No one in here can give you definitive advice. You need to apply and ask your recruiter. Plus, no one in here is going to give you any advice at all when you are so obviously trying to cover up the real story.

With your piss poor driving record at 18 years old, you will not likely be hired as a police officer for many years to come. You can keep asking for advice until you get the answer you want, but we are not here to hold your hand and tell you that you are wonderful and everything will be alright. That is for your parents.

Although I wouldn't be ignorant of the accumulated 8 points, I would certainly question the fact that you disobeyed an officer when you were statutorily required to do so.

Would I want to hire someone (law enforcement or not) who doesn't obey people in authority, when given what was a lawful order? I'm going to say no, but I'm not in human resources and I have been wrong before.
