RCMP Guarantee Lower Mainland Postings

Join us today! Lower Mainland Postings Guaranteed!

Vancouver, BC: For the very first time in the police force’s history, the RCMP is proud to be kicking off its "Lower Mainland Postings Guaranteed" campaign. While many companies are laying off employees, the RCMP says: "We're hiring!".

As the RCMP works to meet its National recruiting goal of hiring 1,792 members a year for the next five years, a new Accelerated Application Process (AAP) has been implemented. This process is allowing the RCMP to put a limited number of potential applicants through the hiring process in 83 days. The traditional process can take an average 333 days.

In addition to the new Accelerated Application Process (AAP), the RCMP is now offering Lower Mainland residents this limited opportunity to receive a guarantee that they will be able to return after training to the Lower Mainland.

"The fast track process is designed to deliver recruits to the front line sooner and we can now guarantee that a candidate will be returning to a Lower Mainland community" says S/Sgt Doug Ferguson, Senior Recruiting NCO at Pacific Region Recruiting. "The candidates still have to meet all of our qualifications, but the processing has been streamlined. We have blended this Lower Mainland initiative with our already successful 83 day Accelerated Application Process".

Anyone interested in finding out how they can take advantage of this one time offer and become one of 32 new police officers policing our Lower Mainland Communities is invited to attend a special Career Presentation on Saturday, January 31, 2009 at the Justice Institute of British Columbia Lecture Theatre, 715 McBride Blvd, New Westminster, BC. A first presentation will be held at 9:00 am and a second one at 12:00 pm. Selected applicants will be able to attend RCMP training in 83 days and receive a $500.00/week allowance for 24 weeks (training, accommodation and meals are included) and as a three year Constable receive an annual salary of $75,657.00 plus benefits.

Media inquiries can be directed to Cst Annie Linteau, E Division Strategic Communication Section, (604)264-2929. Questions about this new recruiting initiative can be directed to Cst Debbie Hunwicks, RCMP Recruiting Unit, (604)264-3066.
