Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

Hello everyone, I thought I’d ask this here to see what the community can make of it. I want to be a police officer I have for several years since I was able to go on a ride along as part of my school program. I understand honesty is an important part of policing and you have to be truthful with ev...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

one of VS' wall trophies, kinda like the stormtroopers' helmets on pikes I ran out of wall space a long time ago, now I keep all my spoils of war here, stored safely with my 1998 Reach For The Top Championship trophy and all the beanie babies I’m holding on to until they appreciate in value suffici...

Is it still possible to become a police officer if I had Covid-19 in the past but I did not require any sort of hospitalization and have fully recovered.
This is like asking if you can still become a police officer if you've had strep throat or mono in the past.

The answer is yes.

Just looking to get in contact with anyone going to depot for troop 12 in February
Don't do it.

Meet them there.
Or do it...

I could totally pretend to be in that troop and learn all sorts of interesting tidbits about you beyond what you've already posted on the internet.

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

(Top CX1 is nearly on par with top constable with our new contract) The federal government and NPF are actively negotiating a new CBA that will impact our pay and compensation package. The RCMP hasn't has any pay/compensation adjustment in more than 4 years, and their salary currently ranks in the ...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

Quick question about service time with the federal government; say I have 5 years with Correctional Service of Canada (CSC federal agency) will that time in uniform translate into any uniform time or some sort deducted time if I would join the RCMP. Things like seniority I would think would reset s...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

Look, VS may spit polish his high-browns with a rock and wet sand, but do not try to use him as a safety versus your home-boss!! I actually don't care what he tells his wife to justify buying it, just providing the facts. And I don't actually remember the last time I polished my high browns,but u d...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

So what your saying is I can't use the SW to buy a sigp226 and justify to my wife that it will make me a better marksman at depot? It would make about as much sense as buying a C6 Corvette with an automatic transmission because you want it to help you get ready for your DZ/airbrake driving test two...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

If you are someone who has no experience shooting handguns whatsoever, are already well into the application process and are thinking going out and shooting recreationally will help you be more successful at Depot, you are wrong. It would be like saying you are going to take beginners BJJ classes fo...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

If you’re on call you are expected to be fit for duty at any point during the period you are on call, no different than if you were on shift. Your time off outside of on call are your own, unless what you’re doing during those hours impacts your ability to do your job when being paid to do it - or c...

Ah, it's like I never left........Van and Pete, you are legends. How many hours of your life have you spent on here ? Less in the past 5 years or so than the ten before that.
