Haha no it won't, now if you arrest someone after you wave around your badge that might do it but even then you'll probably get a couple of unpaid weeks off from work. It's pretty simple, understand that you don't have Peace Officer status off-duty and you'll stay out of trouble. How exactly our powers of arrest work is explained at the JI in detail, follow them and your good.
I just wanted to point to everyone that both active members and instructors/recruitment read this forum regularly, it's important act accordingly, if you want to work for BCSS it's important not to sewer the department, social media is everywhere. If you have questions about anything, reach out to the active members here, most will be happy to answer a question or DM.
Good luck to all
Oh and a tip for you guys in the application process, learn the BCSS history and current organization, nothing worse than an applicant knowing nothing of the department he/she is asking to join. We have proud a history in BC law enforcement and you should know a little before joining.

I've never heard of anyone doing that but noanykey is right, flashing your badge while in SRT at any time off-duty is a very bad idea.noanykey wrote:There's stories about JI students in the academy who have flashed their badge around clubs just to get fired. Right or wrong, I wouldn't suggest it.
On a side note if indeed a JI student was flashing a badge at a club that must be one dumb individual. You are not required to take the training, if you want out just pull pin and leave. But people do some dumb stuff I suppose.
I too passed my interview. Got the request for references emailed to me on Monday, emailed the references back that evening. I found this odd because I was told in the interview that I likely wouldn't be hearing back about the interview results until later in October or even November but the email definitely said that I had completed and passed the interview stage. Congrats on making it through! Also on the cautiously optimistic side.
Yeah I was told the same thing in the interview but received the same email on Monday. I’m not going to sweat over it as it is good news lol. I am emailing mine in tonight, my last reference was not getting back to me about an updated phone number so had to wait on that. Congratulations to you as well! Hopefully everything goes well for both of us here. Cheers!
