30 minutes for a 5 mile is NOT average. That is a steady 6 minute mile. That is well below the average time (in Depot at least, not sure about the rest of the world).

As for your own times, you should aim to be running under a 10 minute mile no matter the distance. I think my 1.5 mile was 10:30, my 3 mile was just over 21 minutes, and my 5 mile was 38:38. Realize also that the longer the distance, the higher your times will generally be.

As an officer, I know its a 24 hour service. But as of your own personal life, are you pretty much like everyone else who works? Or most of the time your on the shift leaving the wife sleeping alone on certain occassions.

You guys worry way too much about everyone else. To go to Depot you should be in your own best shape. Try your best and make improvements while you are there. Not everyone is built to run 5 miles in 30 something minutes and they know that.

Post secondary education is not necessary, but it definitely won't hurt your chances. There are a few people on my watch that don't have post secondary.

We do get days off, just like anyone else out there. The days on though, can be quite long, and can easily run an hour or two past the scheduled end of shift. (That doesn't happen every day though) There are also times when you might need to forfeit some of your time off to finish up some paper work, but how much, or how little of that you do can vary. A guy I graduated with put in 12 hours of overtime in his first week, whereas I only put in 3. Different sections in different parts of the country mind you, but such is the diversity of the work we do.
Where you work will determine your work schedule. I work 4 on, 4 off. You could work the same, or you could work 6 on, 3 off, 4 on, 4 off, 5 on, 4 off, like one guy I know. (It doesn't make sense to me either, but it seems to work for them)

Well my aplication got denied.
Got to wait 2 years before aplying again.
Made a bad choice using a fake ID 1 year ago.
Weren't too thrilled about me knowing people that smoke pot. It's pretty imposible not to in Vancouver.
As well as weren't too happy about my recent speeding ticket.
Also they didn't like me not giving a straight answer to the question Will my loyalty alway lay with Canada.
I answered yes unless Canada was an unreasonable agressor. I don't know if you guys would, but I m not sure if I can follow any country that pulls a WW2 Germany or something worse.

Make the right choices guys. And good luck on your aplications.

Dan_Guy, sorry to hear. that sucks. was this for vpd or rcmp or other?

from what i see (probably not true) i think there is a general 3 years grace period where you cant do anything wrong/live a clean lifestyle before they consider you. it may have to do with maturity, but who am i to say.

the funny thing is i got a speeding ticket a month before the info session, yet here i am still (and near the end) in the application process.

i think you're over thinking that loyalty question. it's more less asking if you would give out national secrets, as you will have access to sensitive material. bascially, will you betray Canada. if you can't do this then you shouldnt be in law enforcement or even work for the armed forces, canada post, provincial, and/or federal gov't, as you have to give your loyalty to Canada.

at the rcmp info session i went to, they basically said you have stop hanging out with people who do illicit drugs, including marajuana, as it is a conflict of interest... yet if your immediate family does it, you can't really do anything since you can't choose your family... i guess it is again about making the right choices for yourself. i lost contact with many friend because of this years ago as it was my future career goal and i dont want to jeopardize my future career because of immature adults still wanting to smoke pot. i know it sucks, but you have to do what's best for you. i found a whole bunch of new friends that dont rely on drugs to have a good time (funny enough most from car clubs LOL). if i can do it, so can you.

anyways sorry for the long post, but i hope you do re-apply in 2 years.

This was for RCMP. I will deffinatly try my best to do what I got to do to get in, but you really never know what can happen in the next two years.

I'll steer my boat in the direction I want to go, but never know which way the current will take me.

go apply with Canada Border Services Agency for a BSO position (Border Service Officer). after a 9 week training prgram in quebec you get $52,000 or so to start and if the new classification happens, you will be making similar money to police officers and you will be armed. plus there is always over time so you can easier make $70000 in your first year. And since CBSA is Canada wide there are many oppontunites including working at the various embassies around the world.

I liked to comment in one story on Nighthawk that google popped up. A trucker who described as his crossing as being 1/4 of the entire vehicle traffic thru there that day.

Probably says a lot about how hard it was for him to find friends...finally finding someone as desperate as a very lonely CBSA agent in the middle of nowhere??

Hey, youre at Nanoose Bay?

That's right by Parksville. I know an Inland CBSA enforcement officer that works out there. I wonder if you know him... probably not, but it would be funny if you did.

Yes, it did for me too. Once I logged into my Facebook account it took me to the right place when I clicked it.
