Have you ever had any experience with couples attending depot together, or starting within a few weeks of each other? Is this something that can be negotiated or is it frowned upon?

Thank you!

I been talking to my girlfriend about RCMP. I guess our main concern is Posting as she does not want to give up her career and does not want to stay at home all day.

can I pick my posting in a area which is beneficial for my partner?

Thank you.

Short answer; no.

Long answer: review this thread and General Chit Chat.

Hi There,

I am currently waiting for my PEP examination to be scheduled. I understand there is a huge back log in this particular step. I have been waiting for a month now, do you know roughly how long it usually takes to get one scheduled.

Between tomorrow and never.

Thank you!


Married couples at Depot in different troops definitely happens, I don’t think I’ve ever heard about them being in the same troop.

As far as it being “negotiated,” no, your offer will come if/when your file gets to the point where they make an offer. If you have a reason to ask for a troop date a little further down the line you can make that case at the time, but I doubt trying to delay your troop to be in the same troop as your wife would be a winning proposition, and honestly I doubt having your spouse in the same troop would be beneficial to anyone, anyway.


Thank you, and yeah we definitely wouldn't want the same troop. But we also would like to start/graduate within a reasonable time frame of each other. Will they post couples in the same detachment or to a neighboring detachment? Again, we are thinking we would want to work within a reasonable commute from home but not necessarily be in the same detachment.

Married couples will be staffed in a manner that they should not need to live in separate residences, be that in a large detachment on different shifts or at neighbouring detachments that are both within a reasonable driving distance for both members.

That won’t necessarily mean that you’ll end up where you might think your first choices would be.

Member couples with years of service have not always been well-accomodated, so if this is a concern for you two, you may as well apply to a Municipal PS.

Hiya folks.

My references/employers have just been called and the field investigator called me to let me know my file was complete on his side. What's next?

Also, are there any books I should read to gain knowledge to prepare if ever I receive a conditional offer?

P.

Does Ontario police realistically consider Saskatchewan applicants?

Considering there are so many applicants from with in Ontario that are qualified, and due to the recent surge of applications, a competitive factor is high.

Hello,

Great open forum to read and learn some things about the process for the RCMP. I have tried the "chit chat" forum with no luck from other applicants or veterans with a priority hire status. I am hoping a recruiter might be able to provide some insight into a national item vs a provincial process.

I learned from National Processing Centre (20 Aug, 2018) that there will be a tool to implement an "applicant tracking system" for priority hire processing, my file went along fairly quickly (email every 4 to 6 days). But when I changed analyst, it has been 25 days since my RMAQ phone call. Does a recruiter know if the tracking tool has been implemented yet?

It seems part of an application process to change analyst multiple times. I don't want to poke the bear, as I know that feeling from applicants as I did a posting as a military recruiter over my career. Sometimes the inquiry was perfect though and allowed me to action my chain of command to new techniques for certain targets/trades/priorities. I am debating on contacting my new analyst about my status for my poly graph.

I read a post from Vansmack about waiting for a poly for some serious incidents for investigations.. My area just got hit with a a few incidents(Publicly known anyways), and there is one local polygraphist in my area (City) and one member 4 to 5 hours away. Thanks for sharing that there are only operational members to interview us, and not dedicated members for testing.
