Morning,

In response to EastCoast1, first good for you for turning your life around and doing the positive things you have done. In order to apply to the RCMP you must not have any criminal convictions for which a pardon has not been granted. Having said that we take into account all the things in your life when determining suitability and issuing a security clearance. Neither myself nor any other RCMP member or recruiter can tell you with certainty what will come of your application, but know that you will have to lay out all the negative things you've done, as pointed out, including the things you may not have been caught doing. Have an honest discussion with yourself about the things you've done in the past and think about if a Police service would reasonably be able to look past it.

Not skeleton in closet except those 6 months 15 years ago . Not proud of it but will be upfront about it and completely honest . Would be taking a huge pay cut but if I can make a difference in someone’s life like a cop did for me 15 years ago then all worth it .

Thanks for your advice and your time . No need to add to this subject .

Stay safe !

"Working days" are from 800 - 1630 but you're waking up at 530 and you don't stop working after 1630. There is always something to do.

At 7pm.

It’s quiet hours til 5am, and pending on the day you either have morning parade at 630ish or breakfast at that time. Plus you need your pit ready for possible inspections.

Hello, I am an aspiring RCMP officer currently still in high school. On the RCMP website it states that one must be 18 to apply to the RCMP and 19 years of age at the time of engagement, or in other words your technically allowed to start training at Depot when your 18 but must be 19 by the time you'll be allowed to hit the road. My question is if I apply to the RCMP right as I turn of age, will the RCMP hire me considering I pass all the required tests or rather turn me away and prefer a more older candidate. If they advertise that they hire at 18/19 I assume they will have no reason not to hire me whereas a municipal agency would take an older applicant who they see as having more life experience over me. So does applying right after high school make sense or is it mandatory I do some post-secondary education even though the RCMP says those that do not have a post-secondary education must complete the entrance exam and pass as the only requirement. Does anyone know of any 19/20ish year old RCMP officers?

Thanks for the info and advice!

Enroll in post-secondary. Don't miss that component in your life, you will regret it. Municipal services are only hiring people with post-secondary education. The standard is rising and there are thousands of young men and women with post-secondary education looking into Law Enforcement. If you want to apply, go ahead and apply. It will take a minimum of one year. Focus on your education, improve your marks and enroll in something you are interested in. I would not consider tossing all your eggs into RCMP. You might make it through and get posted to Nunavut to guard polar bears up there.

Hi All,

You can apply to the RCMP when you are 18 and go to Depot for training, but you will have to turn 19 before you graduate. So, yes can you apply directly after high school. We look at an applicant individually and that includes their maturity level, life experience etc. There are 18-19 year old's who have more maturity and life experience then people in their 20's and even 30's so it really depends on you. I did not have any 19 year old's in my troop but some of my coworkers have. I tell applicants at whatever age, to ask themselves honestly if they are ready to carry and potentially use a firearm in defence of themselves or a member of the public, and if the answer is yes then apply. You really lose nothing but applying and if nothing else the process is a maturity building exercise.

Post-secondary education is always beneficial both looking good on a resume, building your maturity/life experience and also as a backup plan, should you not get hired in the first instance.

Imran

First, if you aren’t a Moderator or a recruiter you shouldn’t be responding to questions in here.

Second, as someone who spent a significant number of years policing in Nunavut as well as three other divisions, the above quoted line is not only ignorant and insulting, but is completely out to lunch. Some of the busiest and best places to learn the job are places in Nunavut, and to make it sound like going to Nunavut is something hokey like guarding polar bears (something I’ve never heard of an RCMP officer in Nunavut ever actually have to do) or is somehow less desirable than somewhere else is flat out wrong. I know way more people who worked in the Arctic, left to wherever it was that they thought was their dream posting close to their hometown or whatever, only to realize they missed more about working in the north than they believed they gained when they transferred out.
