my point was if the story is as you say you shouldn't be concerned at all :P

but holy shit you sound shy and insecure i don't know if shooting for a role in the vpd/rcmp is a good idea to be honest i guess after awhile at the job that will change though

only 21 son . plenty of time to grow up. spoken with a lot of officers and such about their times when applying. and all of them say you'll grow into the role as you get more experience. some people just aren't born outgoing. but people change right

though unsure what you mean by shy and insecure. isn't it kind of natural that people become more relaxed and "themselves" around their friends. because they feel comfortable with them.

no offense by it, its just from the comments in here it seems like you're a shy guy and a path that you're pursuing requires just the opposite

having said that though

Go talk to the guys at daves army surplus and tactical in new west. Also if you work in security or law enforcement id say gloves are your best friend. Look into the hexarmor line of gloves. They are stab and slash proof. They are also needle puncture proof which is a nice bonus on the dtes.

They'll sell to you if you know the guys there. They're hella expensive though, but you know their products work. If I remember correctly they were about $700-800 just for the vest. and around another $300-400 for each plate. But unless you're gonna go around looking for firefights with AK and AR-15 rounds I don't think you'll need those plates

If you're a uniform guard you shouldn't be going near any dangers unless it was a last resort anyways. BC isn't the best in quality security anyways. Found that out with a couple years of experience

silly question. since it's a stab proof vest you're after and it might be illegal. can you modify a tac vest and insert some plates in there?

lets just say.. i walk up and down stairways that has a mosquito (some buzzer thing that doesnt let you hear squat and annoys the hell out of you) and turn some corners that you cant see the otherside of.. all at around 6am when its quiet and dark, no ones in the building.. like just dont know if someone comes popping out of no where found someone sleeping last time in the hallway which wasnt all too bad, most people i've encountered are friendly and just simply want to warm up from the cold and they're quite awesome people ahaha.

but yeah don't need to be stopping no munitions. was instructed you see a guy with a gun you don't do squat, you do what they say and yeah. in reality just need some plexiglass around me just to stop punctures from needles or small knives.. doubt anyone really carries huge machetes around looking to kill a security guard.

Well, the way I saw when I was thinking about VPD is, you need a life experience because this is going to be the rest of your life. It's going to generally be 4 days on 4 days off, with morning/afternoon/night shifts switches every month. Fitness is a huge thing, but the endurance of fatigue counts more in a career like this. They will test your character, your integrity, your reaction to stress and fear. I would suggest gaining every possible skill you can, like licenses, and certifications. Also volunteer at the Community Policing Centers too, that's a big one.

But back to the vest thing , try M.D Charlton in New West. They're pretty friendly with security guards, and from what I remember they might actually sell it to you with no hassle. And if you do still decide to go with the vest, make sure you license NEVER expires, or get a Firearms License (PAL), because if you don't have the valid license, they're technically able to confiscate the vest.

yeah already volunteering quite a bit, ahahah i wish "confiscate" if my license ever expires i could be fined 10,000 and/or go to jail for 6 months for possession of body armour without a permit or license

At 21, start by reducing the amount of lulz to zero. Secondly, you may want to start typing in proper English so you get into the habit of being mature and professional.

Lastly, do some research online, or better yet call CBSA if you want a direct answer. So far there hasn't been anyone here that was able to give you the answer that you are looking for.

though downside to concord would probably be your friends harassing you at the mall. i imagine if i saw my friends at metro while i'm on duty they'll give me shit such as "OH SHIT SECURITY, DONT ARREST ME" ahaha and i wouldnt know what to do
lol, tell them to grow the fuck up. I remember having that kind of attitude when I was...14?

If you want to be a cop, you can't be too concerned about things like that.

I would suggest not buying online. For these protective gear, it's best to try them on so you know they fit properly (can't just go by measurement).
