Do you have what it takes?! | Emergency Response |

If you are interested in joining the force here’s what you
have to do! Just to apply to show that you are serious about it, is a $300.00
test that you have to pass. The test consists of answering 90 questions in 90
minutes, passing the beep test with a score higher than 6.5, you have to have
20/20 vision, you have to pass a spelling test ( 40 random questions out of a
566 word bank) 75% is a pass in 30
minutes.once you’ve passed all of that you have to go through a series od
interviews(chief of police- chief& deputy) you than have to pass the psychological
assessment. This consistis of 5 questions- in a three hour meeting and you have
to answer 700 questions. Once your
referanc checks have checked out you are hired! But your not quite done yet. Post
being hired you go on to complete your 13 weeks at the Ontario Police College. Now
you’ve got a lot of options ahead of you. You always have to start off as the
small fish in the big pond but you can work your way up there. Dream big so
your options are; a tactical officer, traffic, patrol, training,SWAT,
community, homicide, command post, media relations, explosive disposer,
sniper,rapel, etc. If you think that you now get a lot of time off, you’ve got
another thing coming! You are now on a 35 day rotation, 4 afternoon shifts,2
days off, 3 day shifts, 2 days off, 4 days on, 1 day off, 7 straight nights and
then you start again. Only 1 in every 100 applicants make it into the college,
