I don't know too much either. I've applied for the position before but didn't even get an interview. I've got some pretty good experience and education so I'm not too sure what they are looking for.

What kind of experience do you have ?

I'd imagine the position is similar to TTC / Go Transit.
If so, expect them to be looking for people with knowledge and experience in: criminal code, provincial laws, etc.
Good luck!

They are by-law enforcement officers that also dable in security. They are not special constables. For some reason special constables status is not something Mississauga has wanted.

Any idea why? Whether you have Special Constable status or not, the job of Transit Enforcement units across the GTA is the same, the only difference is whether you have those extra powers to make it easier.

MLEOs do have peace officer status when enforcing municipal by-laws under R.S.O. 1990, c. P.15, s. 15 (2); 1997, c. 8, s. 13. Assuming there are transit municipal by-laws in Mississauga, you would have peace officer status in the execution of your duties while enforcing them.

R.S.O. 1990, c. P.15, s. 55 (1, 2) furthermore states all peace officers have the power to act as police officers in the area applicable.

It's more in relations to not having 495 CC, LLA, MHA and TPA. . There are no arrest authority for fail to identify for municipal offences. Honestly not a big deal for transit enforcement in my opinion. P.O.O status is fine for the position regardless.

Not sure. I worked previously in a foreign country where you would be arrested under the transit act if you failed to give name and address if you were caught committing a transit offence like failure to produce a valid ticket. I'm guessing it's not the same here?

There are arrest authority for Fraud in relations to fare under the CCC, but its only summary. Easy to prove if someone jumps a turnstile, but harder to prove for proof of payment depending on the circumstances. There are no arrest authroity under any municipal by-laws which are where most of the Transit enforcement lay charges under.

You could always arrest under TPA if you find people jumping turnstiles or entering through bus bays.

For the role that transit enforcement has - you really don`t require special constable status, MLEO is sufficient. Any by-law violation you enforce where they refuse to ID, just arrest under TPA for engage in prohibited - if it`s a violation of the transit bylaw, it`s obviously prohibited at the terminal. Alternatively, if they won`t cooperate you could just turf them under TPA. Additionally because it`s private property, they can arrest for any criminal offence they witness.

SCST status is nice to have as it prevents you having to call the cops to release the suspect you arrest but the job can still be done without it.

Interesting, we don't have any arrest powers in BC under the Motor Vehicle Act or similar legislation. We can issue appearance notices for offences though, some which carry possible jail time.

You are correct, sorry I should have been more detail when refering to "proof of payment". I'm referring to "proof of payment" system Go transit, Viva, and some TTC street car line which they currently have implemented where you just purchase a ticket and jump on the bus or train.

Arresting someone for failing to I.D for a by-law violation you are walking on a fine line..for TPA - prohibited activity the sign must be posted properly, I highly doubt any transit system has signs posted stating "Prohibited Activity-Refuse to I.D." For TPA, most utitlize it for Fail to leave when directed. Unfortunately, The judges in Ontario wants to see you eject in most incidents prior to arrest under TPA.
