View Full Version : Waiting.....
06-09-2007, 12:06 AM
I have to wait until March 13, 2008 before I can have my file reopened. This is following my removal from the process after my failed poly. I was told they would consider me at that time given the circumstances of the poly (forgotten details, oversights). My question: What should I do to pass the time constructively? I looked into the RCMP Auxiliary, but they want a two year commitment. I'll check with them again and see about other volunteer programs...
any other ideas?

Did they phone you and tell you that you failed the poly? And did they explain why you were unsuccessful?

Yeah, they brought me in for a meeting. I didn't fail the actual polygraph test itself.

So how did they fail you, on what grounds?

It's a long story, and a bit complicated. Also, I can't go into how that part of the process works. I can say that it was not an issue of dishonesty, although they have to assume it was. Sorry for the cryptic nature of this response, but that's all I can say about it.

Out here in Alberta they have a program called citizens on patrol COP and they are given a police radio and cell phone and basically patrol in pairs and call in police to anything they deem suspicious. I was going to join but I am hoping I'll only be here for another 2-4 months. Actually I may still join. Other than that you could look at applying as a guard at your local police department. I'm not sure how they do that now but I know that years back they were just regular people who applied for it like any other job. You work mostly nights though I believe. Hmm maybe department of transportation has a axillary program. I know they hire summer students so they may have something.
Hope those help. I understand why you can't go into detail. We all understand. We have all had to sign the confidentiality papers too but it sure would be nice to know more so we could prepare better. All well I hope you find something to get you through the next year and keep your morale up and apply again. I have met some real good officers who didn't make it through until there 2nd or 3rd time.
