The EPS recognizes that Canadian Forces military police officers often have experiences similar to those of civilian police. These experiences may qualify a candidate for special consideration within the EPS. It is important to note applicants will be assessed on a case-by-case basis.
Consideration Criteria – Military Police
Experienced military police officers will have their Canadian Forces service time recognized from the beginning of their Regular Force-Basic Military Police Training (QL3) to their release date (if employed in a garrison police role). Military police applications must include:
- a completed application submitted online at applynow.apats.ca
- a resume and detailed list of any seminars and/or external courses obtained;
- at least two years of Personnel Evaluation Reports and an up-to-date Member’s Personnel Record Resume; and
- a QL3 course certificate.
Time spent in Basic Military Qualification (QL2), field platoons, or their equivalents do not qualify for this consideration.
An applicant may also be considered if they have Advanced Military Police Training (QL5). These applications must include:
- evidence of at least two years of garrison policing experience over their military police careers;
- proof of current employment as a military police officer with the Canadian Forces Military Police Branch (or employed as such within the past year);
- verification of good standing with the Canadian Forces Military Police Branch (free and clear of any ongoing internal/external investigations or disciplines);
- a completed application package that includes the Personal Disclosure Form;
- at least two years of Personnel Evaluation Reports and an up-to-date Member’s Personnel Record Resume;
- a resume and detailed list of any seminars and/or external courses obtained; and
- both QL3 and QL5 course certificates.
Upon completion of the selection process, successful applicants may qualify for move incentives, limited cost recovery and flexible course dates to help alleviate CF release terms (if applicable).
