Fast paced, stressful but rewarding

A career where you can effectively serve your community. Numerous opportunities for advancement to specialized policing functions; ie: Marine Unit, Traffic Services, Investigative Units, Undercover policing. Shift work and variable work schedules are a way of life. Compensation is fair, the pension is good and the job security is great.

Career for some, not all

The TPS as it is now called after having gone through several name changes, using the words Police Force sounds too harsh let’s use a name that makes people feel all warm and fuzzy, is a vocation which requires a certain type of individual. Physical, emotional, personal qualities that make you a police officer are learned over time. Basics and fundamentals can be taught to anyone, but learning to use those skills effectively over decades takes commitment, dedication, and sacrifice. This is a long term career not a part time job or something interesting to do for a few years. Getting prepared and getting hired are difficult. Once you are hired it is difficult to juggle family life with the job. It becomes difficult to sometimes cope with the things you see and experience. The shiny brochure says nothing about waiting hours for a coroner or body removal services to arrive at an apartment building in August to remove a deceased person that is rotting into their mattress. The sights are one thing. The smells are something you will never, ever, forget. It’s a culture all to its own. Some say that is bad. Others see it as a brotherhood of being able to rely on your peers for support. Support your family sometimes can’t give because they don’t understand. It’s not their fault, it’s just how it is. Overall law enforcement is rewarding. It’s more than handing out traffic tickets. It’s about making someone’s day a little better than it was. Toronto is a large and diverse area. Opportunities are always there. Getting those can be a challenge sometimes as the processes are somewhat skewed - 

Pros

Salary, benefits, rewarding career

Cons

Strain on family life, other interests are put aside, can be dangerous, and boring at times
