Re: Applicant / Specific Question MHA

Sorry. This is not an "ask-a-cop" forum. No one here can deal with individual circumstances. All you can do is apply and find out. No one can answer that question for you. You have told us one side of a story. Be honest with your recruiters. They know their jobs. Will this affect your application? O...

Re: Ask the CBSA!

1) You do not need a PAL for CBSA. You need the CFSC and CRFSC courses before you can start training. Years ago, they were provided for CBSA recruits at Rigaud, but no longer. Consider the $200 or so to be a cheap investment in your future and a great way to learn lifetime safety skills. Don't consi...

Re: Ontario Correctional Services

Grammar and spelling; not just for high school anymore. :D :D One bares arms by wearing short-sleeved shirts. One bears arms by carrying weapons. One arms bears by giving guns to bears. What doesn't kill you, makes you stronger. Except for bears. Bears will kill you. Especially bears with guns.

Re: Ontario Correctional Services

Just some small conversation. Out of curiosity, anyone know the reasoning provincial corrections has never been able to bare arms unlike federally? Was it abused back in the day or just never seen the need for it I wonder? The right to wear short-sleeved shirts? I always thought they could wear sho...

Re: Calgary Police Service

Condolences to all his friends, family and colleagues from all the staff and members of Blue Line Magazine forums.

If I remember correctly, Andrew Harnett was formerly Military Police. I believe he was on the Thunderbird Challenge team and was in my pistol course. Outstanding officer.

Rest in Peace.

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

No one wants a recruit to fail. Your instructors will always be your best resource. Some recruits come in with a little experience with firearms; some come in with a lot; and some come in with zero. It doesn't matter. It's not previous skills that will decide who passes and who fails - it is ATTITUD...

Re: *** ASK AN ONTARIO RCMP RECRUITER ***

The question has been asked and answered. Next question.

Let me reinforce what Pete has said. This is NOT an "ask an applicant" thread. The ONLY people who can respond to questions in this thread are RMs, recruiters, moderators and admins.

Re: *** ASK AN ONTARIO RCMP RECRUITER ***

FYI, Mexico has three times the population of Canada, but four times the number of cases ... and most importantly, NINE TIMES THE NUMBER OF DEATHS. Allow me to be less polite that my friend Imran. This is an incredibly selfish thing to do right now. It's not just self-isolating when you get home. Ho...

Re: Will travelling during covid affect the outlook on my process?

#1 - No need to cross-post. You asked the question and got an answer. #2 - Just because you didn't get the answer you wanted, there is no need to keep asking the question on multiple forums. #3 - Why are you relying on information from fellow applicants? No one can say for certain. #4 - When you hav...

I heard there was supposed to be a posting last Friday but nothing yet. I, unfortunately, had to leave the Sheriff's in 2016 but now I'm patiently waiting to apply again. Now since I'm no longer in Fort Mac I should figure out how to change my user name lol

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

Edit: You're 40? Now that's embarrassing. I guess what's even more embarrassing is that our entitled applicant just got kicked off a law enforcement forum for insulting members, disparaging police and starting flame wars. This was a college prank thing a few years ago to come on forums like ours an...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

Hello ! I'm not quite sure this is the right place to ask, but I was wondering what the application process might look like for someone with my profile / background, and most importantly what might be my employment perspectives if I were to be recruited by the RCMP. I'm a 40/F Canadian citizen born...

This, wish my wife saw this post before sinking 20k on online courses that "condense" 2 years into one.. Not necessarily a waste of money.
