    Ukraine - Superthread

    I was blown away when I did PLQ there. I was substantially less impressed with the lack of thought and generally poor build quality that went into the Hoffmeister building next door. But that has nothing to do with Ukraine.

    Ukraine - Superthread

    Well we happen to have a heritage of Rifles (still on the cap badge, not in the official name anymore) that only ended during the Second World War when they threw Ram tanks at us and called us Armoured all of the sudden. We retained Shermans until the 60's when those disappeared, and have used...

    I'm not sure you would see as much resistance to that from the Unit as you might expect.

    Transition to Municipal Police Force

    You would never, ever convince the likes of Vancouver, Delta, Abbotsford, Port Moody, and West Vancouver to give up their "superior" "community oriented" Police forces for a regional. They're all convinced they do it the best, bar none. Their respective Police boards and City Councils are...

    Victoria is facing a public-safety crisis

    Imagine if we had body cameras and a supportive senior management who would release footage of the treatment officers receive from the public every time this kind of thing happens...

    Transition to Municipal Police Force

    BC Government need "additional information" before decision on Surrey police Service I braced myself for a go decision, and a no-go decision. This is somehow worse, as I and my colleagues will just continue to circle the drain, waiting for somebody to make a decision so we can get on with our...

    High Ranking Police Folk Allegedly Behaving Badly

    This one was a dandy, happened while I was working. The CAD remarks were hilarious.

    "B.C. Mountie's anti-Trudeau website raises concerns about discriminatory views within the RCMP" (split from White nationalism/CF thread)

    Yup. I really, really wish Kash Heed would STFU and go away already, his name always pops up in articles about the RCMP in BC like he actually knows a damn thing. He's never been a member of the RCMP and has been out of the Policing game a damn long time. If you've ever read Blamed and Broken...

    RCMP New Firearms Required Discussion- Split From New MP Decal Thread

    Air Carrier Protection already uses the Glock without issue, as does arguably most Law Enforcement in North America. To me, the answer is simple. But I agree with brihard, I suspect there's some institutional silliness in trying to avoid an almost inevitable lawsuit from whomever loses.

    RCMP New Firearms Required Discussion- Split From New MP Decal Thread

    Another RFI, this time with the confirmed specifications and testing procedure. And apparently we need to re-invent the wheel, because we've decided to do a 20,000 round testing procedure along with all kinds of other meaningless drivel. Can't just assess for which pistol meets the criteria...

    He kept his leg complete, still battling with a full recovery however.

    High Ranking Police Folk Allegedly Behaving Badly

    I once wrote the bail comments for a dial-a-doper who made a grab for a member's pistol, then managed to get that same member's CEW when they defended their pistol and deployed it into himself and the member, taking them both down. He was so high he wasn't feeling any pain, and had nearly...

    High Ranking Police Folk Allegedly Behaving Badly

    It's definitely something I battle with myself the longer into a shift I get and the more tired I get. I'm also now in an acting supervisor role where its my job to motivate my guys to go out and do the work, and it can be challenging. The juice is almost never worth the squeeze, especially...

    High Ranking Police Folk Allegedly Behaving Badly

    Victoria is facing a public-safety crisis

    My colleagues and I do our best to respond to "Assist EHS" type calls as soon as possible no matter what they're for. They're so short in this province they need all the help they can get, and if us helping them here frees up another one over there for another call, that's the best case...

    Active Shooter In NS. April 19 2020

    Quite frankly if it were up to me they would strap a thermal to all the extra Griffons hanging around the deliver them to the Division's Air Services hangers. They keep going with the Airbus products with fenestron tail rotors in the name of cost efficiency and noise reduction. A Griffon is more...

    Active Shooter In NS. April 19 2020

    It took a massive pile of work to purchase a single H145 helicopter for RCMP Air Services Lower Mainland. It has a hoist, IR, spot light and is absolutely the kind of helicopter they needed for this. It can apparently carry an ERT assaulter team and they have practiced insertions and...
