Alberta Community Peace Officer

Postby BigRanks » Sat Nov 11, 2017 6:14 pm

Hey All,

Is there anyone on here that knows the process to become a Community Peace Officer? I currently live in Ontario and am interested in the position and would like to know if it would be difficult to go through the recruitment process out of province.

I currently work as a Park Warden with Ontario Parks and have experience with what the job entails with the exception of radar/lidar training and the emergency vehicle operation course.

Any help or advice is much appreciated!

Google "AACPO forum" and ask your question there. You will get more responses there.

As for getting hired from out of province. There was a guy on my CPO1 course from Ontario. He was hired over the phone. He got a position working at a College in Edmonton (no traffic enforcement). You will still be required to have a valid PARE for any CPO1 position. You will probably find that you would have to come out for interviews for most jobs if you want to be doing traffic enforcement.

It's not difficult, lots of people have applied from outside Alberta and were successful. As long as you meet the requirements, you can compete for any job.

Apply and go through the process....but do not mention verbally or in writing any reference to "responding lights and siren".

Really? I've applied to many many CPO 1,2 and bylaw postings and never received so much as a peep from them.

Hi all, I am a serving UK police officer and am lucky enough to have been granted confirmation of Canadian permanent residency.

We are looking at settling in Alberta and am therefore looking at peace officer roles in the area. I'm from a rural police service which is very much engaged with the community and the role of a peace officer really appeals to me.

I do hold a diploma certificate in policing, although obviously this would be UK based.

Have I realistically got a chance with only UK policing experience? Is there anything I can do to give myself a better chance of being hired?

Any advice would be very much appreciated!

There are many ex British police and military working in Law Enforcement in Alberta.

A couple of sites that have job postings....AUMA.ca and AACPO.ca
