They were just finishing up interviews at my office. So I wouldn’t think of it as being the end of your application process. They need to look through everyone first.

Any recruit prospects out there heard anything On the recruitment process? I had contact about a month ago and they said they’d be in touch this week or next with potential posting locations. But I’m skeptical about that course starting in June now. The JIBC is still running the current sheriffs program (which I was supposed to be on but got deferred), but that might change. I’m keeping an eye on the JIBC website.

I’m trying not to speculate too much. And I certainly don’t want to be that guy who keeps bugging the staff while there’s a pandemic happening. But if anyone hears anything, please share either on the board or in a private message.

Stay safe. Stay healthy.

@Blooms

I haven't heard back yet. I was told I could expect to hear back in couple of weeks' time and it's been 4 weeks almost now. I would imagine the delay/halt could be the result of pandemic situation. Hm

Negative. Class is postponed until further notice. So I'm hanging around until that fires up again.

The JI has cancelled all face to face classes.

https://www.jibc.ca/news/jibc-community ... g-covid-19

Anyone currently in the SRT program? Are you still training or postponed? Any chance Sheriffs would be exempt due to being essential services?

I haven't heard anything from the office but I'm sure something is coming.

I have been told that SRT is still going but the students are spaced out in the theatre. Virtually everything else at the JI is cancelled.
