Would they be on a par with PCSO's over here? Do they have power of arrest etc... I've had a brief search on google, and see that University of Toronto use Specials as Campus Police, and that the Toronto subway system employ specials.

Its not money towards your mortgage, its a better rate, I think its key worker benefits.....Allows you to get cheaper mortgage rates to allow you to work in an area you cant afford to mortgage a house in......I am not sure what you call it but I am thinking key worker benefits??? Its for fire fighters etc etc And only relates to certain areas you live.

I was just wondering if there was anything like this over here? Especially as you need about $1million to get a place in Vancouver these days LOL

It kind of sounds familiar, but I'm not sure if it was one of those gimmicks that never came to fruition. I certainly don't know anybody who gets this benefit, but maybe it was only available in certain areas????

To the OP...if you manage to get into one force, it might be easy to transfer to another. Guys have gone from the military to the rcmp and police. Also don't forget that the military has a police also.
I've known a few MPs to move over to the civvy cops. In a couple of cases, I am bound to question the efficacy of the physcological profiling techniques used during recruitment. Two of them were mentally unstable.

On an unrelated matter, maybe one of the cops can answer a question that has been bugging me for years?

A few years we came up here on a house hunting trip, prior to posting. In the hotel where we were staying, I bumped (literally) into Gilles Duceppe. He was in the company of five rather burly men. RCMP minders, I was later told by the missus. I was struck by the fact that they were all completely bald. That is too much of a coincidence to be natural. Why would they have all shaved their heads? Any ideas?

Special might be some sort of bylaw officer? In BC special constables can be things like the SPCA or commercial vehicle inspectors. Not sure.

Most services, with the exception of a few forces, pay more or less the same. Around 80 k for a level 1 Cst, plus service pay, senior cst pay and shift dif and plain clothes pay, which can add close to another 8 k a year. Each bump in rank is around 8 - 10 k a year. Overtime is largely double time and triple on stat holidays.

Well I am RCMP and have a full head of hair. Cant say i have noticed any fashion trends that tend towards shaving one's mullet. Canadian guys tend to just shave off what they have when baldness sets in.

vancouver city has set aside some subsidized rentals at the olympic village for emergency workers. But it's hardly a trend.

In the RCMP in isolated areas or limited duration posts, Force Owned Housing is provided.
