Each Police Service is free to use their own interviews or the ECI as created by the Ontario Chiefs of Police Association and the Constable Selection System.
In most cases, you will be asked to complete a Developmental/Local Focus Interview, and/or and Essential Competencies Interview.
For the Developmental/Local Focus Interview, you will be asked questions based on – Information Seeking, Concern for Safety, Assertiveness, Initiative, Cooperation, Negotiation/Facilitation, Work Organization, Community-Service Orientation, Commitment to Learning, Organizational Awareness, and Developing Others.
For the Essential Competencies Interview, you will be asked questions based on – Analytical Thinking, Self-Confidence, Communication, Flexibility/Valuing Diversity, Self-Control, Relationship Building, Achievement Orientation, and Medical/Physical Skills and Abilities.
Applicants who are unsuccessful in the ECI, will be permitted a second such interview only after a waiting period of 3 months from the date of the first interview, and after a 6-month period each attempt thereafter.
