STAGE 8

Background Investigation

This stage is the final step in the selection process. A thorough background investigation including social media accounts, enhanced security and credit checks are undertaken on the applicant and the applicant's spouse/common-law partner/significant other.

If an applicant has any previous police training or has served as an employee in any law or by-law enforcement agency, it is required they submit the following:

  • All internal affairs checks (past, present, and pending complaints)
  • Annual performance reviews
  • Training records

Upon successful completion of the selection phase, applicants are issued a score based on their progress through each stage of the testing.

The applicant’s file is then submitted to a review committee that determines whether the applicant is to be offered employment. The applicant's file manager will contact the applicant with the committee’s decision.
