City Police vs RCMP
Ah well I have something that is difficult to think about. My bf is just finishing law school to get into law enforcement. The problem is as to where he wants to apply.
His primary goal is the city police. The main issue is that 4/5 applicants get differed on their first attempt. In other words, 4/5 applicants will be turned down and will be ask to wait 1 full year before applying again.
He's decided that if he becomes one of the 4/5 stats, then he will apply for the RCMP. The problem with that is if he makes it thru the application process, then once he is finished training, they legally have the right and will be placing him where they see fit, anywhere in the country.
As you can imagine, I'm hoping that option #1 is what I'm hoping makes it thru the first time. I rather not move across the country to a tiny town or worst yet, a village of some sort. Whatever happens, I will be going with him. With my training and my line of work, I can essentially apply and work anywhere in Canada.
I have tried to explain to him the big disadvantage of applying for the RCMP, as far as relocation, seclusion etc etc goes, but it seems he is pretty set on his decisions.
What would you do in this situation. Is there something I can do to try to make sure he knows 100% that is is what he wants to do?
