Hey all I want to ask something for a friend since he is too lazy to make an account. For those who have applied for SPF and CNB direct-entry inspector, are the timelines for both application process similar? He is applying for both positions but most of the information available is only for the SPF one.

I dont rly focus on rank i just wan to do the job😂 rank if they give me i take but otherwise will work till cannot hahaha
Personally i would recommend you going through NS first and if you're lucky to get spf then you will experience it first hand before making a decision on whether to sign on or not
be a security guard is better. higher salary. police salary is low and long working hours. too much responsibility.

Who do you suggest should do what a police does if we don’t have people like them who’s willing to do it? You?

Just received an email to go for their medical checkup . If Im a smoker, does it affects the outcome of the application?
Unless your smoking causes you to have lung diseases/issues, I don't see it as an issue because I think smoking is rather common.

after you leave the police force you can become like this guy.

While his current field of expertise is far from what people consider exciting, Dale actually led a different life as a police officer at one point of time.

When asked why he signed on, he candidly blames “too many Hong Kong movies” for giving him a thirst for action.

“The first two years were exciting!” he says, but he later found out that the reality of police work was more mundane than he expected, and by the seventh year there wasn’t much he still looked forward to at the job. After leaving the Police Force in 2007, Dale simply wanted to find a new job and get by.

You quote this person who explains he left the police because he found it boring. And yet you ask ppl to work as a security guard, which Im sure is way more exciting.

Furthermore, every job has people resigning and changing jobs. SPF is not immune to that.
You dont know each person's motivation in joining SPF, they may not just be joining for the excitement.

Looking at your previous reply in a different forum, a bit contradicting eh. Is it you got hatred against police since your husband got rejected by police a few times?

Im also pretty sure security guard work is more mundane as compared to police. I have seen security guards sleep on duty as well.

If you keep and invest the 30k, the other bonuses that you get every year like mid year, performance, end of year and save a good amount of your monthly salary that you get every year like mid year, performance and end of year amount will depend on the economy and your performance. If we assume a diploma sign on at age 20, the take home pay around 2k and save 1k every month means he or she can save 60k in that 5 years. And if the yearly total bonuses equal to 3 months (could be more depending on economy and ur performance), it would be another 30k in 5 years. At around age 25, one would have 120k and this is not including promotion, pay raises, allowances and other bonuses. If you were to invest the money in a globally diversified portfolio, you can even get 6%-8% annual returns based on ur risk appetite. If you work for long term, there are also other bonuses and benefits that they provide. But of course being a police officer is not easy as well so money shouldnt be the only factor.
