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.
