Re: Ask A BC Sheriff

You pretty much answered your own question mate If you have done the copat and the pare then you should be fine. Just hustle through it like you did the last two physicals and you'll be fine. I notice the BC sheriff's site state that the next class is August 2016. However , you can send in your app...

Re: Ask A BC Sheriff

Interesting, good to know. Anyone know how much harder the SOPAT is then the COPAT? The SRT recruits I talked to swore up and down that the SOPAT was "way" harder then the COPAT, but I've been comparing the two (JIBC site and Gov BC site) and it really seems like they're pretty comparable...

Re: Ask A BC Sheriff

You saw them at a correctional center or a Sheriff's office to pick up inmates in a marked CBSA vehicle? It was at a correctional facility. Interesting. I would like to hear the story behind why and who is doing the training for them. Would require some extensive training, such as use of force, wha...

Re: Ask A BC Sheriff

I am not sure about this either. I've never seen a security company do any of these duties, especially with the training they get. You would think they would have to go through a pretty extensive training course to be certified to do this. Interesting though lol. CBSA has been contracting out their...

Re: Ask A BC Sheriff

Question about LPI There's 2 parts, JIBC says I need a level 6, LPI only shows that for the essay, should my focus be more on that? Not exactly sure what your question is... If you're applying to the BC Sheriff Service, you require a level 5 grade to be mailed in with your application. This is exac...
