Hi everyone, long time reader first time poster.

I was wondering if any one else is in the Ottawa Police Process and where you are. I had my successful ECI July 2016 and I'm still waiting to hear for my psych test and background.

This thread has gone dead for a bit now, so I thought I'd revive it.

Possible applicant here! I'm just finishing up my ATS testing and will likely apply once I receive my COR. It seems odd that you're waiting a year for your pysch/background.

Is the process this slow?

My timeline was pretty quick to start. I had my PBQ in April of 2016, my LFI was scheduled for the middle of May and right after that I had my ECI scheduled for July 2016. Since then though, I have had quick emails asking if my PREP is still up to date and telling me to stay positive and patient.

I'm not sure if this is regular practice or just a backlog of candidates.

This thread has gone cold; lets try to keep it going. Anyone from the August PBQ currently waiting a psych appointment?

Hey guys,

where are you now situated in the process ?

For my part: PBQ April 2016, LFI May 2016, ECI July 2016, Psych April/May 2017... since then, nothing.

Have a good one

Hi there.
I did my psych at roughly the same time as you- I badgered my contact at OPS afterwards and eventually found that I failed the psych. Big disappointment- esp. as I consider myself to be a level-headed and well-rounded individual.
If you haven't heard back by now- I'd consider contacting the HR folks to get an answer.
Best of luck to you!

I got to the final review and was deferred. The whole process took a few years for one reason or another. I'm pretty confident it was not enough volunteering that sunk me at the end. Pretty devastating but I'll try again in May.

I'm glad this is being revived though. I'll do what can to engage in this thread with some of my ideas and questions.

I'm still waiting on a psych appointment and I passed my ECI in July 2017.

Still waiting for background. Did the psych about 9 months ago. Patience is the key :)

Good luck!

Did you try to contact HR for status? My buddy has been waiting for a bit as well. I’ve been reading up on news and in 2018, OPS is looking to hire 25 new recruits. Competition is tough. But I’m praying that i secure one of those spots. Good luck to everyone.

Yep. I'm still in the process. At least I know I'm not the only one waiting. From what I hear, once your done with the ECI, it's pretty much just a waiting game. If you don't get the letter, you're still good.
