  • Leaving current job

    I was wondering if any LEO in CA had gotten there through the buasic course cert waiver. I am leaving my job in Iowa to go to CA so my partner can attend Grad. school in Chico,CA. I know I will miss LE but don't have the money to sponsor myself through the basic academy. At my current LE job my co-workers say that I can't get out of LE because I am good at it (and enjoy it most days). I just don't know what to do Any info or advise or rants would be helpful.

    Apply at a local agency and have them put you through the academy instead. Sure, it will suck having to go through the academy again but it all depends on how much the job is worth to you.

      CA agencies 99% of the time don't sponsor the academy. It is a self sponsored program.

        Where did you get that number from??? An awful lot of agencies have their own academies out here, OCSD, LASD, LAPD, a lot of sponsored guys going to Rio Hondo, etc.

              Nice to meet you also. I go by Marshalltown quite often when I'm headed to the academy for training.

                Check out the California Post Website and look at their qualifications to switch over to a POST cert. You send all that info into them and they make the final desicion to give u a cert or not.

                At least that is my understanding of it.

                  Sending your info to POST is a good idea. You might be able just to take the sections which weren't covered in Iowa. I hate to be the one to give you bad news...but homes in CA are going for an average price of three hundered thousand dollars. And thats being nice!! Most agenices out here barley pay you enough to make it. We'll thats if you have kids and a family.

                  Seems like you and your partner don't have the kiddos. My advise is once your partner get their degree...get out of CA. I'm looking to move back to Texas just because of the house prices. If you don't believe me just go to realtor.com and look around at different CA cities...you'll see.

                  Chico has a pretty good PD..I went to DUI school with a couple of their officers..summer is good cause all the college kids are out of town.

                  Well I'll get off the soap box now. Good Luck and welcome to California soon anyway...

                          Hey whatsup to the Iowa guys! I'm on the eastern part of the state in Iowa City.

                          As for POST cert I added up all the training hours that I have and I have over the 664 required, but I am a total of 7 hours short on a few of the specific requirement categories. I am going to try and scrape up enough training before I leave to qualify.
