Re: Ask A BC Sheriff

Filling vacancies in the North is a frequent priority for most provincial enforcement bodies — CVSE, NRO, Sheriffs, etc.

Doesn’t mean if hired, you will be sent there, but there is always a potential.

Re: Ask a Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Officer

It is very similar now to other armed LE agencies. - Entrance Exam - Interview - POPAT - MMPI Psych Exam - Background checks including credit checks - Medical As with other interviews of these types, I recommend STAR. But you may be given scenarios you have to think your way through. If you are succ...

Re: Railway Police - CN and CP

Every once in awhile, I see job postings for CN and CP Police. However, as Hopeful says, they normally post for experienced officers. Having said that, I do see the rare post for recruits, and to my understanding, bridge anyone over to a high starting salary with Peace Officer experience -- Conserva...

Re: Ask A BC Sheriff

Hi, Highland2012 Thank you for your reply, that's really helpful. I would definitely consider to stay in lower mainland. Yes, for sure. I heard North offers more OT for both correction and sheriff. 16hrs shift is like every day schedule. LoL Depending on your centre, BC Corrections has some pretty ...

Re: Ask A BC Sheriff

Frontline Deputy Sheriffs received a TMA to Grid 21 as well as a general wage increase of 2% (for everyone) as of April 2021. This puts them at $69,422.06 per year or $38.01 per hour. Put in a little bit of OT and it's $70K. Some specialized frontline positions also received an additional TMA to Gri...

NS - Safer Communities and Neighbouhoods (SCAN) Enforcement Investigator

This Nova Scotia special constable position is mostly geared towards people with 5-10 operational law enforcement experience. But, I figured it couldn't hurt to share. Perhaps someone will find this of use. Pays decent for sure. https://jobs.novascotia.ca/job/SYDNEY-Government-Enforcement-Agent-%28I...

Re: MTO (Ontario) officers - provincewide postings

In Corrections we call the fall downs lol. I don't know why, but that just made me laugh. Lol. I was thinking, and I’m not one for body cams. Wouldn’t be nice to have this body cams and use them against management. Mine would never shut off when talking to management lol. Bodycams certainly have th...

Re: MTO (Ontario) officers - provincewide postings

Well, I can tell you your boss wasn’t put there for being nice, and I bet she has no experience as an officer, I bet also. This is literally a problem across the Public Service in Canada at pretty much all levels -- municipal, provincial, and federal. To a lot of agencies, a manager is a manager is...

The Auditor General gave this program a solid dressing down last year as did a risk assessment in 2018. Numbers was a big issue in the face of rapidly expanding commercial traffic and fatal CMV collisions. Get your apps in. Make them good and best of luck. BC CVSE also got a dressing down from the ...

No, I do not believe so. I considered the Sheriffs once upon a time while living in the Okanagan and do not recall any institutions in the Okanagan or Thompson-Nicola that did the SOPAT.

Some research indicates that hasn't changed...

Re: [CANADA] High Demand Auxiliary Constable Location?

Wow, excellent post. Don’t apply for auxiliary, it will do nothing for your chance on becoming a police officer. Only apply if you want to volunteer and give back to the Community. Good luck This isn’t entirely correct but it’s also not wrong. I do agree with Fonthill. With your experience, I would...

Re: Ask a Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Officer

Hi Dshizzle, You're looking at the Carrier Safety Inspector (CSI). Even though it was posted externally, CSIs are generally recruited from experienced CVSE personnel or CVE/Traffic from other provinces. Occasionally, experienced non-CVE enforcement personnel are hired. So generally speaking, you sho...
