Police officer transfer from uk to Canada
 
Hi guys, my husband got Canadian citizenship but living in uk and works with Kent police. Is there any chance that he can get transfer over Canada or if we move there he will get a job of same level? Is he supposed to do some training or some tests? What r the career prospects of police officer in Canada? What about salary? If can transfer, then how long will take ? MANY THANKS

You can't transfer as such. You just resign from whatever force you're in in the UK and then try and join a Canadian force. If you're already a Canadian citizen you could do it tomorrow.

Has he had to do some training there before joining...

Yes. All the training a normal Canadian recruit would do, starting from the very bottom*. On the upside, after 5 years in a Western Canadian force, you could be making about what a Superintendent makes in the UK.

*As far as I know.

Hi Gavin

I just noticed that you are a new poster so wanted to say welcome to BE and the Police forum.
Looks like you are already getting some useful replies from other posters so all the best.

true about the earnings. A level on e cst here makes around the equivalent of 55,000 pounds per year. As a Sgt it's about 70 k pounds, with over time more like 100,000 pounds:thumbsup:

Hi,

I'm a new forum member and I am interested in getting out of the UK and across to Canada as a police officer. I currently serve in the UK and feel that a change is in order.
I'm looking toward Toronto area as I have relatives in and around there. I'd welcome any advice that would help.

Cheers.

Hi Dubnut76,

At the moment, no Police Service in Canada except for BC Transit Police (Vancouver area) are recruiting internationally. If you already have citizenship or PR, then you can apply to any police service in Canada, so long as they are recruiting locally.

If you wish to apply to the RCMP, then you must be a Canadian Citizen.

Kind Regards

Nige

Nige,

I'm guessing I ought to go down the route of getting citizenship or permanent residency first.
I would look to BC as I have friends out there but my own family would struggle with travel if coming over to visit given that all the others are Ontario based.

Thanks for the advice,

Kenny aka Dubnut76

Hello, I am a police officer with The Metropolitan Police Service. I have a question: is it really that impossible to transfer from uk police forces to places like Canada and the U.S.A? :goodpost:
