we don't get anything for a perfect score.
Be professional and methodical. Take ownership of the situation. Look, listen and understand what is really being said and you will never have to walk away from an incident wondering if you missed something. Make every contact with the public count.

Not even an 'attaboy' and a pat on the back?

In BC, about 7 or so years ago, we used to issue little pins, silver for scores of 90% or better, and gold for 100%. Not sure if other divisions did it as well. Only lasted a year or 2 I think.

How about a certificate from your president or vice president in your region for perfect scores?

In "O" Division members who shoot Crowns (250/250) get a certificate from the CO of the division.

Same with 'E' and 'N'.

Bev used to sign the ones in 'E', I'll have to check to see who signed the one for 'N'.

And I need to re-qual soon... Almost expired. :P

I'd love to see what they say if you went and put crossed pistols or crowns on your dress uniform the morning of the Peace Officer Memorial in Ottawa. They wouldn't have time to get you to take them off, but I bet they out you at the back of the crowd for the photo on the west stairs at the Hill!

I am an alternate for August as well. Again, volunteers with seniority go first.

And since we have only 6 seats, and more than that many volunteers .. me being the newest in the office ... means I am probably waiting until next fiscal.

Hoepfully you'll get to go sooner than that if you're an alternate someone might bow out and you can take their place.

Well, one of the guys going in August is scheduled for knee surgery right after the course! So, who knows.

I can't go now, though, as I am scheduled for a search warrant course at the end of August, so I will be unavailable if they have an opening.

We had our first qualification PPC in Chilliwack yesterday. Passed. Funny how one word can drop my score almost 15 points from my average over the previous two weeks.
Looks like I need a new avatar...

I heard that the agency is working on a certificate for someone that shoots a perfect score.

It's a shame that Alain Joliceour retired, because I really would have wanted mine to be signed by him. :roll:

I think it will be signed by the director of the PRTC!

Just like to pick up the "weaver stance/isosceles stance" discusuion again.

I went away from the weaver a couple of years ago and only teach a modivied-isosceles.
Since everyone is wearing armor it would be insane in my understanding to present the only
unprotected part of my upper-body...the armpit...to the threat.
We teach the shooter to be more flexible...
-so the Strikeface of your armor is always facing the bad-guy
-your gun is on target
-and your feets are moving.

old saying: if you have a clear sights-picture and a perfect stance...you are not moving fast enough.
