This is not the first REO process that was conducted in an open and transparent fashion that hired a targeted candidate, nor will it be the last.I have less tolerance for a REO process that does not vet candidates. A simple set of phone calls would have likely turned up some concerns.
Yeah, I get that, and have seen it, but.................if they were, there should be a record somewhere.This is not the first REO process that was conducted in an open and transparent fashion that hired a targeted candidate, nor will it be the last.
Phone calls may have been made and concerns brought to light which were overruled by the hiring authority.
Absolutely.If someone is fired for misconduct or sanctioned by a professional body for misconduct, I think that should be relevant to the CAF regardless of it happening outside. It's not the only example I have seen of full-time employment being handed to a reservist who had lost a police job for conduct. It kinda creates the image that we are okay with that sort of behaviour.
it’s like there’s some “Old Boys” network of VPD officers having part-time employment in the BCR
In a platoon sized unit called a Regiment, no way you wouldn't know what's going on, especially the officers, they are usually pretty close. I don't guy this for a secondOf course. No-one in the Res F gossips about people they know, so how could anyone be aware of such things?
Media reports last year say McCullough was given a 15-day suspension in 2018 following an external investigation that found he failed to disclose a relationship with Const. Nicole Chan, and entered into the relationship despite knowing she was in a vulnerable state.
The 2018-19 OPCC annual report does not name McCullough, but did call for a five-day suspension for a police officer who "was in a personal, intimate relationship with a police officer who was under his direct supervision" and "failed to disclose this relationship with his supervisor."
The OPCC also called for 10-day suspension for the same officer for having "entered into the relationship with another police officer with the knowledge that the police officer was in a vulnerable state, mentally and emotionally."
The commission said the suspensions could be served concurrently.
It went on to note the first officer had since retired and "co-operated fully in the investigation and participated in all relevant processes. The police officer sought professional help in understanding his actions and wrote an apology to the other police officer."
McCullough retired from the Vancouver police in 2018, according to media reports.
No dispute about these items of the timeline.Maybe some review of a timeline might be in order
