Are these guys apponted as S/Cst's? It also indicates applicants have to complete the ATS constable testing. Just wondering because I've heard they carry automatic firearms. If they just have to have a firearms licence, are they authorized by the government to carry full auto firearms? In addition, I don't think they would need an ATT because they probably don't carry any firearms of site.
