    No, not at all, and nothing is wrong with Troop B, except the snow and cold.

    The Division has an interest in maintaining a balance of manpower around the state. So, for a few years at least, lots of people work in a part of the state they didn't choose. It's happened to almost all of us, sometimes more than once.

      It really doesn't matter where you go. Your a Trooper no matter where you go.
      I'm use to being the low man. You just need to be (as we said in the Marine Corps)

      Semper Gumby!!

      It's a great job, it's been a long time since I have looked forward to going to work.

          I wouldn't mind being up there with the snow and the cold and all as long as I get the Job. *waits patiently for Jan and to see if I make the next academy*

          • Silly question, but I've always wondered: Why is it some troopers where an undershirt under the summer short-sleeve shirt, and some don't? I would think it would be required for a uniform appearance. Secondly, does it matter what color, as in "If you are going to where one, it can only be white" or "Only black or white undershirts allowed" etc.

            Just curious what the policy is on that, if there is one. I know, a rather random question, but I am curious.

            Thanks!

              that made me think of another question, I've seen troopers pump gas at the gas station, do you get reimbursed when you pump your own gas for the patrol vehicle or no???

              Because I know SCPD has gas pumps at the stations so the officers don't pay for gas for the patrol cars.

                Wearing your vest on bare skin is quite uncomfortable and nothing to absorb sweat... you shouldn't see a t-shirt under the vest though... V-necks or like I do... cut the front of an old t-shirt.

                Yes... you have to pay for your own gas I've heard of PD's that make you buy your own equipment but buying gas for your patrol car is a little much don't you think?

                    That's true, since you can put a lot of miles on the CVPI in one day go 20miles one way to a call and another 15miles another way plus your patrol that you choose to do. how much do you guys usually spend on gas a week????

                            Like John said "I can't wait for that feeling again." My place of employment now is like a prison sentence. Thank god my poly for the NYSParkPolice is tommorow and I am almost done with that process. All i have to do is tell the truth. Academy is Nov 12. so we will see. It will be interesting to see how well I do on the State Police exam in Jan-Feb to see if I get to do another "fun" academy .
