Does anyone else see this as a HUGE opportunity for the gangs to get people in on the inside?


I'm sure some affiliated people have the skills and can produce people to vouch for their character...

I would hope that the polygraph, the background checks, and all of the other application steps would weed those types of people out.

One can only hope... Although you would also think that somebody wanting to infiltrate the criminal justice system by becoming a peace officer, with the intent to use their position to further help their gang buddies, wouldn't be intelligent enough to accomplish this in the first place. That's a whole other topic though, hah.

The criminals already have infiltrated moles into Police systems through civillian employees as clerks, secretaries, office employees etc. I remember one major event where several of the the cleaning staff were directly associated to the Hell's Angels and I know of one Govt location where bar staff also had biker connections.

A few questions regarding the application process...
I'm 19 right now. I am still a year away from my Class 5 test. Should I take the Police Aptitude Test now?
For background check, will they have prejudice against people with simple, conserved social networks? For example, I don't have much volunteer experiences neither do I have any work experiences. I don't do drugs, neither do I know anyone that do drugs. However, I do have 3 Motor Vehicle Act violations, still in the dispute process. What are the chances of them hiring me?

Your better off to wait.
You cant write the RPAT unless you meet the basic requirements (class 5 drivers license is one of them)

Your better off getting some life experience. Go work and get some volunteer experience.

They basically told me to distance myself from from "those people", basically my sister, because she chose to marry the wrong person. From the get go, I chose to cut off my old friends who used drugs, but now I have to cut off my own sister. Go figure. When they say "you can't choose your family".. well.. I guess you can.

so after almost a year of passing everything else, the security clearance, which is the last stage before depot has stop my application. They told me I can apply to re-activate my file after a year of proving that I distanced myself... but in the end no matter what I do, even though I am making the difficult choice of cutting off my sister for good (she understands), I think they will still not hire me because in the end I will still be related to her.

I spoke to a VPD recruiter this past weekend about my situation and he said "the RCMP does funny things like that" and to get my application in ASAP with them.

Sorry for the long post. In the end I have nothing to hide as I made all the right choices and surround myself with positive people. They even said that I didnt do anything wrong, just that I'm "too close". okay, whatever that means.

The way I look at it, it is just a bump in the road called life. I might re-apply in a year, but as of now I am going to apply with the VPD and other places. Seriously thinking of EPS and CPS.

that...is fuked...sorry to off-topic the thread.

Yeah, ur better off to wait.. most applicants they hire in their teens bring significant life experience to the table.

There's a reason that the average new recruit is 27-28yrs old, not to say that a 19 year old can never get in, it's just rather slim.

Everyone at the info session appear to be in their late 20's or early 30's.

haha. that's what I was thinking... oh wait wait.. it's "the departed" for the north american folks.

to reply to GT-R R34. It was upsetting but oh well, it's part of life. I have other opportunities and applied to other agencies. I finally got my conclusion letter last week and it says that I meet the requirements to be a peace officer with the RCMP, but my entire file basically doesn't fit. Time to challenge/appeal this decision

Hey guys, so what is the deal with the RCMP dental check? (medical stage). What are they checking? If I still have all 4 wisdom teeth, will they make you yank it all out before depot?

I believe they are checking for any dental problems that could cause problems while at depot.

Any outstanding issues (cavities, etc) need to be taken care of and will be paid for by you. If the issue isn't something that needs to be dealt with right away, but at some point in the future, that is noted on the dentist's assessment and kept on your file. You'll have to take care of it out of your pocket when the time comes and won't be able to bill it through the RCMP.

I was also told by the medical person/clerk that they need an up to date x-ray in case they need to identify your remains. it makes sense.

Sorry to bump this thread, but it is pretty interesting, and I've got a few questions.

I wrote the RCMP entrance exam and I passed. Got my package in the mail today.

Package consists of pre-lie detector questions, need to get my thumbs inked, and some general information.

I need to hand in the full package by 2 months from now. The officer at the info session told me I have 5 years to apply (once you passed the test), is this true?

Basically I want to get in shape and do my physical test in about 4-5 months. Is that possible, or will I get a set time to do it?

And during the lie detector stage, will they ask for any names of people I know who may be in gangs, drug dealers, etc etc?

Thanks in advance.

Everything they ask is laid out in the pre-polygraph questionnaire. For your PARE, I can't remember exactly, but I thought the results had to be handed in as part of the information package. If you're not in good enough shape to run the PARE now, perhaps you should have held off the application process a bit/started exercising sooner. The PARE itself isn't all that hard, but the fitness stuff they put you through is pretty exhausting. My troop had some pretty in-shape people and there wasn't one person who put in a decent effort that wasn't drenched in sweat from head to toe after a fitness class.

Hmnm from what I gather during the process, you might have got a few of the time frames wrong?

Check your letter again. It usually says 1 month(unless they changed it), to hand in your whole package. The pare is part of the package, so it should be done within the month. It should say that if you dont hand in everything by THAT date, your process may be concluded.

THe written test is good for 5 years, meaning, if you get deferred, you may not have to do the test again the next time around.

They ask you every possible thing in the polygraph. Its basically, your pre-employment package, + more detail. So be prepared to answer anything and everything.

Quick question for the wise:

Case by case I know, but does registering higher than normal on blood sugar grounds for termination?

5.5 is normal
5.7 tested

Not a diabetic.

So, let me get this straight. After I write my RPAT, I need to submit the rest of the stuff in and prepare for the PARE test within a month? what if I don't feel like I'm ready? I thought the RCMP recruiter mentioned that I have up to 5 years to complete my package after the RPAT.

The RPAT test results are good for 5 years.
You must submit all paperwork within a certain time and be ready to run the PARE.

If you feel that your not prepared to run the PARE, then dont write the RPAT yet.
