    Reserves and the RCMP (and Other Civilian Police)

    In my opinion BRIHARD is about 50% correct here. Most if not all RCMP members that are serving in the PRes are either former PRes or Reg F. That allows them to pick up without loss of quals or sacrifice to their time off....if they are content to stay at their entry rank. I know personally of...

    Hmmm a young Pl Comd at the Seaforths learned a very important life lesson many years ago...he wouldn't listen to his SNCO's or at least hear their opinions. He spent a very cold weekend exercise in Chilliwack without a sleeping bag that may or may not have been left in the armouries after being...

    "RCMP set aside criminal investigations to increase counter-terrorism"

    Brihard- That 20 year contract has an opt out clause of 3 years notice, if the LMD municipalities are not happy with the Force....put in place due to the manpower shell game and communications issues encountered over the last few years. D&B- The SS (yes that is what it was called) was replaced...

    Civilians complaining about Police/Emergency Services' Pay

    Rules changed in Feb of 2007, myself and JH lobbied for 7 years to have the rules changed. Gen Hillier saw the sense in it and made the change.

    "RCMP set aside criminal investigations to increase counter-terrorism"

    You can also factor in that over 35% of the Force has 24 and a day....two bad days and the institutional knowledge has the ability to walk!

    RCMP union bid headed to Supreme Court

    The MPPA is pushing for Collective Bargaining and Binding Arbitration. This change in labour relations will be good for all members, we will no longer be the Zellers of policing. The pay council report that was recently released was scathing....yes we are cost effective, because we get paid less...

    Improved Combat Uniform

    There was a post on here not so long ago about the U.S. Army blouse that our new Cbt shirt is based on. It seems that the majority of improvements that we are adopting ( collar, Velcro, cut) has been binned by the yanks and they are going to redesign the shirt. :facepalm:

    I am a CAF member & I want better pay and benefits (a merged thread)

    Quick question for you DA, how does an RCMP pension fit into the mix? Can you do 25-35 with the RCMP, then get out and work a number of full time years Class B on top of (by that time almost 30 years) Class A? Just thinking about retirement job options post RCMP. Cheers Noneck

    CADPAT/Tan/OD Gear, Pouches and Rucks

    Not a chance.....this side of the Rockies we still dress like a band of pirates, just like our Hootbag brethren on the Island! Merely trying to return the garden shed to its proper function by getting rid of some kit.
