MP Shifts
« on: May 09, 2006, 14:40:18 »
Do MP's usually work 4 on 4 off?  Do they do 12 hour shifts usually? or five 8 hour shifts per week?

Thanks

depends on what you do. Patrol members in cold lake are on a 4on-4off-5on-5off type of schedule. Some members are on day staff, normal 8-4 5days a week.

But it varies from guard house to guard house.
The process is not the mission.

Most shift work is a 28 day cycle of 12 hours per shift (6-6) normally set up as:

2 days, 2 nights, 5 off, 2 days, 3 nights, 4 off, 3 days, 2 nights, 5 off.  Rinse and repeat.

So you'd work Monday, Tuesday days, Wednesday, Thursday nights, be off until the next Wednesday...

That is sweet...This sounds good...Seems similar to civi police scheduling...

Right now I have to decide between applying to the MP's or going and finishing a degree for 2 years and then applying to civi police or the MP's...

Hey, I searched and couldn't find to much on the subject.

I'm in the mid-end of the application process woo! Living near CFB Trenton. My questions for all the MP's is what sort of shift cycle do they work?

I know civilian police forces have different ones like 12's 4 on 4 off, 12's 8 on 6 off etc.

Any insight would be appreciated. Also, I don't think MP's work OT unless I'm wrong.

Thanks

Thanks. I found that just wasn't to sure if that was how it still worked.
