Passed my vision exam today and applied online as soon as I got home (I passed my hearing exam a few weeks ago). Been waiting to do this since I was a kid!

Also, next Monday night I'm going on a ride-along with the Ottawa Police Service. Should be interesting.

Not sure if anyone's still following this board anymore but I thought I'd keep posting my updates here anyway.

So yesterday I did a ride-along with OPS in the West District (it got rescheduled since my last post) and it was a fantastic experience. We attended four calls, I met about a dozen officers, I got to see a suspect put into custody and booked into holding downtown, and we even attended a call with OPP. All this on a Tuesday morning and afternoon! I highly recommend it for anyone considering a policing career, you'll learn a wealth of advice and information.

I first sent in my ride-along application in July and wasn't put in touch with a constable until October, so apply as early as you can. Email the OPS general information address, ask them about the ride-along program, and they'll send you a PDF of the application package.

Also: today I received an email saying that within the next three weeks a recruiting coordinator will contact me with instructions on completing the selection package. Things are moving along nicely!

I'm in my fourth week at Depot, and I can honestly say that I love it here. They certainly do keep us busy though!

Hi Ottawans!

I'm just about to get started on my application process, I was wondering if anyone could recommend any good places (cost wise) to get the vision and hearing tests completed in Ottawa!

Thanks, and I hope that everyone's application processes are going well!

Hey. I did my vision test at Barrhaven Optometric Centre for $191.00 and my hearing at Barrhaven Hearing Clinic for $65.00. Not sure how these prices compare to other places but hopefully they can help you shop around. Good luck :D

Ive got my vision booked at the laurier optical in Findlay creek area off bank this week and its about $70 and my hearing test is next week at the Findlay creek hearing clinic also off bank and they are only $60. It was a bit of a pain getting into both places as they only have certain days of the week where they have staff that are certified to do the test.

Those seem like pretty reasonable prices, I'll definitely take a look into those places. How long did you have to wait for booking those appointments?

I had to wait about 2 weeks because of availability. Talking to a few others I know going through, its the cheapest place to get the tests done.

I had my hearing test recently completed at ListenUp! on Merivale, in Nepean, and it costed me $75. They filled out the RCMP form, etc.

Not free, so YMMV.

I'm having it done very shortly at Barrhaven Optometric clinic. I unfortunately got quoted the same price as mountaindew posted above.
