Q & A Interview - Cst. Hood

  1. Give me some background information on yourselves. Age, where you grew up, education/work history, are you married, any kids, how you ended up in Prince Albert etc.

25-years old and grew up in Beauval Saskatchewan. Not married, no kids. Since growing up in a small town and Prince Albert being a small city, I feel like I would be more comfortable coming to a smaller city.

  1. How was Saskatchewan Police College? Tell me about your experiences. What was the hardest part, the most fun, any big surprises, et cetera.

It was challenging but it was a good time. The fun part was rapid deployment, going into a building with potential active shooters and you have to find them. The hardest part was criminal law.

  1. How big were your classes, and how long was the program?

18 people - 20 weeks

  1. What made you want to be a police officer?

Growing up in a small town and seeing the RCMP members there I looked up to them. They came to the schools and did presentations. Then being in the military and seeing the team and family structure. I was in the military for five years. Then I took the Aboriginal Police Preparation Program which gained more interest in having a taste what police officers do. Then I became a summer student at SPS and got to follow officers and see what they do which gained more interest and I decided to apply. And now I got hired and I love it.

5. Is there something about working in Prince Albert that appeals to you, in particular?

I am starting in patrol but I would eventually like to try Canine.

6. What's the most enjoyable/rewarding part of being a police officer?

I love helping people, so... making a change in their lives.
