I don't get it, who in their right mind would want to keep working after they retire from the force?

Retire is the key word folks.....I retire in 5 years and I'm done with work.

I am going to enjoy travelling.
I am going to enjoy my family.
I am going to enjoy playing golf.
I am going to enjoy getting those little things done that I did not have time for because I had to work.

I am not working, after I retire.

That's pretty well what my dad did after 30 years OPP. Retired as a Det/Sgt, did a few gigs here and there because he wasn't quite ready to slow down, then moved out west to BC. Now he golfs every day out there all summer then heads down to Tucson, Arizona for the winter and golfs every day when he's down there. Plus, he and his wife golf on the road while they travel back and forth between their residences..... Hey, he's got the time now, might as well enjoy it like VPD says.

We have quite a few retired people at Avis who shuttle around vehicles part time... Most of them do it to keep busy, then there's the socializing, and bugging the poor Tow Truck Driver... We have a few retired Police & Firefighters, a couple guys that worked closely with the Avro Arrow, people from pretty well every occupation...

Apparently I never inherited that gene from him, that's one past-time I didn't develop an interest for. I just never saw the logic in deliberately hitting a little ball away from you just so you can go chase it in the trees where it landed

The rattlesnake shut down a couple of years ago? Has it been revived?

My father in law and several of his RCMP buddies retired and started working at the Home Depot in Ottawa.

Once Depot was home and now Home Depot is work, I know horrible joke but couldn't resist.

On another note, retiring as a golf pro would be great. Guess I'll have to break 100 first. Just got to find that sweet spot between my hook and my slice.

The RCMP in E Division are hiring ex Members as Civillians, but assisting in investigations.....This is something kind of new.

some of the retirees were out doing censuses,one retired marine officer actually drives a freight tugboat around lake of the woods
Be professional and methodical. Take ownership of the situation. Look, listen and understand what is really being said and you will never have to walk away from an incident wondering if you missed something. Make every contact with the public count.

If your foolish and think that you were taught anything about Canadian Law in Regina, you could throw a resume into Integra Security.

Integra Security? Aren't they the company, whose owner, Phil Lacasse, was charged with a bunch of offenses under some security company act? I think it was posted here in another forum. I may be wrong.
