What does the RCMP offer for experienced officers? Does the RCMP offer competitive rates, promotional opportunity, specialty units, higher priority for detachment choice or specialty pay for certain detachments?
What is the RCMP doing to retain officers?
Are you currently serving as a Canadian Police Officer?
Have you checked the RCMP webpage?
Have you contacted your nearest RCMP Recruiting Unit?
Have you spoken in-person with a serving RCMP Police Officer Member?
See first quote.

Good day Pete,

It’s more than reasonable that you would ask these questions as I’m sure day after day people ask questions without actually going through the motion to find the info themselves.

To answer your questions yes I am a police officer currently in Ontario.
I have read and looked through the RCMP website which did provide substantial information but no current pay scale 2019 and nothing in regards to incentives for experienced officers or why exactly so many are switching red for blue.
No I have not contacted my nearest recruitment centre yet as I want to research all avenues prior.
I have reached out to current RCMP officers I know (experienced and new).

The purpose of posting these questions is in hopes an officer who has recently switched from blue to red or red to blue would share some personal experience.

Thanks for your time Pete have a great day
I "moved" all 3 related posts over here, then "quoted" them to put them together, so that other RCMP Police Officer Members (I ASSUME (yes, I DO know the construct of that word, thanks much!) that we no longer use the term, Regular Member, given the change of CM to PS) that have patched-over, but are not either me, VanSmack, DepotWeb, or posted to Recruiting, can make their comments without violating the rules on the Ask An RCMP Recruiter thread.

Further, such topics have been covered in the Police Officer Private Forums, so you COULD apply for admittance to that area, and once allowed in, you could do some research on your own.

Polygraph and being abused. If there is illegal activity I am sensitive about due to being the victim, is that taken into account? I want to join but I know there are area's I will react to in ways I cant control.
That's not really how the polygraph goes. You should take a read through this page - http://www.rcmp.gc.ca/en/pre-employment-polygraph. Pretty accurate I'd say. Just go prepared to have a good honest chat.

You are specifically told throughout the pre poly forms and in the polygraph interview that you are not required to speak about any instances where you are the victim.

If, let's say for an example, a person was molested by a family member. They would not need to say yes I committed incest or provide details. Being a victim of a crime will not be held against you.
If you choose Law Enforcement you LOSE the right to be unfit.

Keep going back through this thread and the Ask a Recruiter.

Load dates fluctuate; you, and every other applicant, have an indeterminable wait period.

Welcome to our reality.

Just wondering how often is Ontario accepting cadets from depot? Obviously odds are way lower to get in o division. But wondering around how many they take a year?
It has been said time and time again that if your only aspiration is to get to Ontario after depot, your best bet would be to apply to OPP or other local agencies. From what has been explained to me by members here in Ottawa is most members in O division are generally working in some sort of federal policing capacity AFTER years of experience as GD throughout Canada. My assumption with that information would be your chance of going back to Ontario after Depot would be less then 1%.
Thanks for telling me what has been said time and time again. Nowhere did I say I wanted to be placed in Ontario. Curious as to what formula or algorithm you used to calculate 1%? Was just wondering if actual statistics were taken from depot.
There will be LOADS of stats, ALL of which are meaningless, as it changes day-to-day.

If you WERE to receive said stats, it would be like looking at the Lotto Max, Lotto 649, or whatever other lottery, or casino, stats you were to look at, and then try betting, or picking, from that...and end of losing, or winning, or dying before you even looked at your ticket, or the eMail from the Force.

Just a reminder to anyone who may be offended by my, or VanSmack's, posts on here; we only care about you being upset if we find out you actually DO get a room at Club Fed By The Mighty Wascana, because that just means you will probably go fetal soon after you toss your dittybag on the floor.

Do NOT congratulate me, or VS, for our directness, but, yeah, sure, go ahead and contact whomever you think might pay attention to you complaining about us. While VS and I, as well as every other Police Officer Member and Public Service Employee of the Force IS truly concerned about your mental well-being and how we can help lessen the effects of PTSD over whatever length of time you get in the saddle, the reality is that the Force bear-walks to the beat of multiple off-key / off-page bagpipers.

Call it the greater-than-the-sum of our history, the curse of being part of the Federal Government, or whatever, but IF you EVER get accepted into Basic Cadet Training, or as a Special Constable in Air Services, or as a PSE in a Support Unit, it will NOT be smooth, sensible, or logical.

You all have been warned, once again.

You know, despite you not holding a real job, I can't say that you are totally without merit!
