Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

Other RM, Mun Police Officer, and other Fed, other Prov, and other Mun Law Enforcement Officer, are HIGHLY ENCOURAGED to chime-in, but, unless you NEED it as a pre-requisite of your Mun et al PO / LEO application, I see no point in taking a foundations course. Mind you, I am speaking from a dinosaur...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

Just sent in my first application on Friday. I’m excited, but I’m also scared after reading some of the deferral stories. I’ll be absolutely crushed if that were to happen. I have a university degree and experience making verbal arrests. I’m also volunteering with some local agencies right now. Doe...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

I believe thats his way of saying he prefers officers out doing field investigations verifying applicants RMAQs rather than relying on a machine. Absolutely. However, even back then, we had Recruits who washed out on the way to, or shortly after setting their suitcase down on the sidewalk at, Club-...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

Hi everyone, just had a quick question. Did the rcmp eliminate the pre employment polygraph from the application process? It is no longer their on the website so just wondering out of curiosity if they did. If they did I’m wondering why? Every time I click on anything regarding it the page fails Th...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

Hi everyone, have a quick question that’s probably a long shot one. Waiting on the last thing so far which is medical clearance. Was told that my file was sent for final review to Ottawa for a final decision. Does anyone know how long it approximately takes for them to come up with their decision? ...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

I understand what you are saying, but I respectfully disagree as my situation is not the same as your daughters. I have a hearing loss that has stayed the same my entire life without issues. I can hear without aids but not to the acceptable levels. As I said case by case should be the status quo as...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

Do we ever see a day when the rcmp application will no longer 'discriminate' against hard of hearing persons? With the inclusive age we live in organizations like cbsa, dfo strive to allow there applicants to pass with correction using hearing aids. For me now 32 i have always wanted to be an offic...

Re: Your opinion - By-law/MLEO Uniforms, PPE and Vehicles

In this day and age, it makes NO sense for ANY enforcement, EXCEPT very SPECIALIZED Units, to be conducted with UNMARKED vehicles. For Animal / Fire Code / Noise / Parking / Unsightly Property issues, operate appropriately marked vehicles, issue appropriate uniform and LIMITED UofF tools, and give t...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

Is it new as in just refreshing the job post like it has been for years or has the application process been revamped or adjusted or what? As far as I can remember, the RCMP job posting on jobs.gc.ca has never been closed. We went from hopefuls being able to apply by filling out forms at any Detachm...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

Regarding being a small (i.e.: Weyburn or Estevan) Municipal PS or RCMP General Duty Detachment guard (since I have NO clue about SQ, OPP...or much of anything), especially in the Prairies: it is not steady work, and oddball hours. It is not bad work, just boring and paper work, but VERY necessary. ...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

Just because your not a member yet, doesn't mean you cant pitch in some other way an gain valuable experience. Heck you might end up changing...
