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.
I just noticed the 'disobey' and was gonna comment.
You beat me to it.
I'd like to know what order was disobeyed. There must be a good story to this one.
That said....christ help you if you're caught selling/buying them on CF property. The MP's and your unit will have a field day throwing punishments at you left right and centre.
Like I said, I don't condone steroid usage.....but the CF has bigger issues to deal with drug wise than roids.
On a side note...I don't know how it is now but a few years ago CTing from the reserves to the reg force was HARDER than applying off the street. Not telling you not to join the reserves but it can be a pain in the ass getting into the Reg force if you take that route. My info isn't totally upto date....there is someone on this boards who works in recruiting (that I won't name as it's not my place to) and if he wants to chime in and correct me go ahead.
-An unnamed Sgt. Major
Whatever would give them the slightest idea that recruiters are dumb and don't know their jobs, or that police officers would think it was okay to use illegal drugs that are often supplied and smuggled in by the same organized crime members who have participated in the murder of many citizens in this country, including police officers?
Maybe I am totally naive here in thinking they are just stupid; maybe it's the steroids that have clouded their judgement.

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 ...I have completed the prejustice certificate at mohawk college and am on the way to getting the Protection security investigation diploma...
And the PM you sent me about your "friend" joining the CF but having done steroids and being worried if he can get in? I somehow think that "friend" is actually you. I'm not trying to single you out, but I've come to see a trend on this board and army.ca...
If you, or your friend (if he really does exist) have done steroids, and while I'm no police officer, I'm gunna go out on a limb here and say you, or he/she will have a very difficult time becoming a police officer, especially if he/she has a horrible driving record.
Posted for posterity... I don't know how many applicants Brantford Auxiliary is getting, but I'm going to say there are not too many Richards born 14SEP1993 who are going to Mohawk College and scored 4th on the physical...just sayin'
If it doesn't work just go to Brantford Police Service website to view.
If you're on the up and... er...up, continue with your life, get your driving record Clear for a few years. Do that first. And maybe volunteer somewhere for a few years. Do something, anything that shows maturity and focus.
