          • Anyone have an idea as to how long the BI takes? I started mine 2 weeks ago. Also, do you wait for BI to clear before Med and Psych?

                          Morale - I can't remember what the process is for new recruits and physical fitness requirements, but once you're in you will never have to take another physical fitness test again. Amtrak PD does not have a physical fitness standard which explains the amount of obese officers you see in uniform. No team spirit, barely any chance for advancement, and many of the officers are not team players, negative, uninspired and they hate to see you get ahead. If you're not a physically fit person who will enjoy sitting on your rear end until your RR retirement kicks in, this is definitely the place for you to be.

                            Yeah, but Amtrak can't keep MPD Officers or any other police officers. This is not the place to go if you're serious about a police career.

                              Amtrak hires more retired cops. They take more lateral transfers because it's cheaper.

                                You will not see Amtrak police officers in most Amtrak stations you go to because they hide most of the time unless they get a call for service. Especially doing football season on Sunday, during the day don't expect to see a police officer while the games are on unless the station is burning down.
