Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

New memo, subdued Canadian flag with the thin blue line is not to be worn while on duty. https://globalnews.ca/news/7392282/rcmp-directive-thin-blue-line/ Your summary is a complete mischaracterization of the message that was sent out. It was not, as many are characterizing it, an order specificall...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

As stated above, the current state of air services hiring is that you need to be an experienced and licensed pilot. Pilots will go through Depot typically in an Air Services troop and with a condensed version of the CTP. They will be hired as sworn members, but for obvious reasons won't be tasked wi...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

THEN there were the Livestock Investigators - cowboy boots, jeans, cowboy hat, and a snubbie! Those guys still exist, as do lumber theft investigator positions. Before anyone gets too exited out there, they are both highly specialized positions and between both of those units there are probably les...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

"F" Div USED TO have a few Migratory Birds Convention Act positions, and they would go around putting on a birds-and-bunnies workshop, but my eyes rolled like the slots at Casino Regina. Every Division had those positions, they were Federal Enforcement Section positions which were also responsible ...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

Thanks for the very detailed reply. I'd certainly love to do an applied degree in Conservation Enforcement. That said, jobs in Fish and Wildlife and Conservation appear to be very hard to come by from what I hear. I hope the RCMP would consider this kind of an education to be an asset, thus making ...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

I’m just curious, if anyone is familiar with the timeframe regarding updates from the RCMP about if the medical will be recommended. Considering the psych was done today, I was thinking I would hear back in about a week? Your medical stuff gets reviewed and then signed off on by a Doctor employed b...

Re: Hearing Test - Not Meeting Minimum Standards (OACP)

. What is somewhat crap is this. Police ( at least those I know of) will say your vision or hearing is a bit off, correcting with just glasses or hearing aids is not acceptable to be hired. Yet if you pass those tests and five minutes after you get your badge your vision drops below the hiring leve...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

Should put 10 troops in total on Depot at any given time. That's still not very busy to only have 10 Troops on base. It’s not that far off to what’s currently on base as it is. Currently running at roughly 1/2 what was on base prior to full shutdown. Any move to start using those trailers would req...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

Exciting, do you know if the new troops will be in the same situation housing wise like you are currently or are they going back to the way things were or covid. I'm hearing Depot Noise that they will start to use the trailers in addition to D Block and CTF to house more cadets. Should put 10 troop...

so I’m here to ask for some advice.
Or instead of asking the a public forum comprised almost entirely of anonymous users who are wholly unqualified to give you any sort of an informed answer, perhaps you could send a message or make a phone call to an actual RCMP recruiter.
