The purpose of this step is to evaluate aspects of your personality that are critical to the job of a police officer. These personality traits are assessed using a psychometric evaluation designed specifically for the public safety field.
You will be subject to a security accreditation process, which aims to check whether you meet the security and integrity criteria of the Service de police de la Ville de Montréal (SPVM). More specifically, this process helps us determine whether you adopt irreproachable conduct in your personal, professional and social life. In this respect, you must agree to a criminal, penal and financial background check, as well as a check of your driving record and any other police or relevant information about you. You will need to be honest and transparent. You must also undergo fingerprinting.
Please note that you must meet the following vision standard: 20/40 better eye, corrected to 20/20; 20/100 other eye, corrected to 20/20 or 20/60 in both eyes, monocular measurements, corrected to 20/20.
Administered by TELUQ, this evaluation aims to assess your knowledge of spoken English (functional level).
Note: An evaluation of spoken and written French may be performed for applicants whose native language is not French.
The overall review of your file is the final step in the selection process. It involves a comprehensive evaluation of your application. A final hiring recommendation is then made.
