Namely: SDT, Trooper4985, GrayState, GrayPatriot, VZMan, ML75, FutureTPR, Dirtyduce, Troopster78, MB Troop, GSP, Trooperhopefull and anyone else that was a help in this long, long, long process. I will take every bit of advice with me to the academy and apply in every way possible.

      I won't be able to post here anymore once the academy starts, but will definitely update you guys after graduation.

      Thanks again and good luck to all of you that will be there April 20th and those of you who just took the written.
      Congrats!! As I was reading this thread today I was hoping that you would respond with good news. Your posts have been really good and you can tell that you really want this. Good luck in the academy.

If your going to come into the Academy on the 20th, make sure you don't just bring your own cup of coffee with you, make sure you have enough for the training officers also. I believe there is a Dunkin Donuts across the road......
                          I wouldn't eat a big lunch on your first day as the academy staff has pizza and sodas for you. After that first night it is all down to business though...

                              Suozzi, Levy to call for cuts to highway patrols
                              BY RICK BRAND AND REID EPSTEIN

                              [email protected]; [email protected]

                              April 1, 2008

                              Playing political hardball, Long Island's county executives today will announce plans to begin taking its highway patrol officers off the Long Island Expressway and Sunrise Highway starting May 1 to counter state budget cuts.

                              Nassau's Thomas Suozzi and Suffolk's Steve Levy, within view of the expressway, will disclose plans for a phased withdrawal in a noon news conference in Melville, starting with a 25 percent cutback.

                              "We are left with no choice but to start removing county officers from state roads and make the state police perform its role," Levy said.

                              The counties are undertaking the power play in the wake of a tentative state budget plan that calls for a 2 percent across-the-board reduction in county revenue sharing. Nassau and Suffolk officials say the cuts add $4 million to the $10 million in state budget reductions each county was facing.

                              Under the executives' plan, Nassau and Suffolk make further 25 percent cuts every three months until there are no patrols as of Feb. 1, 2009. Nassau has more than 175 highway officers; Suffolk, about 90.

                              Each county spends $12 million annually to patrol local state highways while state troopers perform that same function in the rest of the state. On Long Island, troopers patrol the state parkways and Sunrise Highway on the East End.

                              Gary DelaRaba, Nassau Police Benevolent Association president, called the move "a good negotiation position" and supports the county's efforts to recoup lost state aid. But he added, "I don't think this is a practical way to go. Everyone should use their heads before they take positions to put the public safety in jeopardy."

                              "It's an absolute disgrace," said Jeff Frayler, Suffolk PBA president, adding that a fast response from highway units is "vital to public safety."

                              Levy said he has asked the prior two governors to put state troopers on state highways but his request was denied. "Ironically, they tell Long Island no," Levy said. "But Gov. [Eliot] Spitzer earlier this year proposed sending 200 state troopers to upstate cities like Buffalo to patrol neighborhoods up there."

                              In his State of the State message, Spitzer had called for using troopers to patrol high-crime areas in upstate cities.
