Durham Regional Police Service

I don't have an inside track on this police service but I just happened to notice that they have opened up a new hiring pool for police constables (Open until 2015)

Is anyone aware of why they keep it open for so long unlike other services which have a short timeline? Does anyone know of how many officers they are looking to hire say for 2014?

I have been invited to a group paperwork session with Durham on the 18th of this month. Anyone else?

When did you receive the invite? I have been 'pending' with Durham since Jan. When I spoke to the recruiters they said its because they haven't had any paperwork sessions this year yet so fingers crossed I get one too!

They're looking for 10 or 15 for December and 10 or 15 for April. They just got the approval to hire. Hope that helps.

I applied in April - May through their online application (Hope I did it right), haven't heard a word.

I applied a few days ago so I'm guessing I won't be hearing anything for at least a few months, if not more. Good luck to all.

Anyone apply to Durham concurrently with other police services?

I have yet to recieve any invites to initial paperwork sessions with Durham but was informed by another agency that Durham was asking about the status of my application with them. My impression was that this type of check was done in the background stage, but I guess it can't hurt to prescreen applicants. Hoping to here something soon.

Anyone has an idea what "Pre-background Interview" is and what they ask in Interview?

I know Pre-background questionnaire that must be filled before LFI/ECI interview but I was reading another forum that Durham also does "Pre-background Interview" after successful LFI/ECI.

Just wondering, any experience?

I applied in April, my status is still "pending". Not sure what I did wrong.

Does anyone know what the time frame is with DRPS on getting back to you after the paperwork session and letting you know about the LFI/ECI? Is it within 2 weeks?

Thanks.

It's exactly what it sounds like. They will give you a questionnaire about your personal history.
This includes many aspects, such as driving, financial, etc.

Based on personal experience and what most of the services I've dealt with say it takes around 1 month to move from stage to stage. Faster if they're pushing for a class. You also may not hear back for 1 year at which point your application is no longer valid and you can then reapply. Spend your time improving your competitiveness so you don't dwell on the calendar days going by.
