Question for you. I know there is no shortage of police applicants here but can the same be said about the US?
Would a bunch of people quitting (I assume they have plans in their back pockets or retirement) not present an opportunity to clean house and bring in new people? Would the quitting actually achieve what some municipalities are trying to do with renewal? Some experience might leave but I bet it isn't all experience.
FYI, I'm not advocating for that but it seems that some municipalities or defund groups would welcome wholesale quitting despite the consequences of that action.
I'm not familiar with what retention is like there. I know the RCMP here has a bit of a retention issue over pay and work conditions but I don't know what it is over all in Canada. RCMP seems like a bit of a unique police force compared to anything else here or in the US though.
