  • Need some info guys and gals...

    I have a junior officer here who is interested in CBPO. He missed out on the last hire in January and is looking to get picked up. I heard a rumor that DHS would be doing another hire on 4/6/09. Have any of you heard this and can confirm it or provide any further information?

    Thanks in advance.

      Nope, you can't do anything like that. It actually isn't too bad with a fan right now. I slept a lot better than I thought I would. Although in the later months it will probably be worse.

          The minimum entry level run time for NYS Police academy recruits(males/under 30)...12:18. Same minimum needed to graduate...10:47.

          Merlin, I agree.

          I am 31 at 6'2" 230lbs and lift weights quite a bit, but do barely any cardio. I tested with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission and scored 60 push-ups, 52 sit-ups and ran the 1.5 mile in 12:16 then swam 300 yards, but I was hurting. The 15 minutes should be no issues for anyone that does anytype of excercise. I have been in law enforcement for 7 years, I have been in approximately 10 all out resistance fights. You have got to be in shape in this job, I know after about 1-2 minutes of fighting someone to cuff em up. I was spent.........

            I'll be joining your club on May 28th. I plan on flying home to NJ a few times out of Jacksonville. Do you know anything about shuttles to the airport or car rentals yet. Anyone can chime in. Thanks

              Probably just find a classmate with a car and buy them a tank of gas and ask them for a ride.

                I dont understand the relevance of anyone (including myself) arguing or presenting facts and times in relationship to fitness in CBP or any other department. If they DO NOT make you stay in shape after finishing training, then what's the difference?

                    CASS is working fine for me.

                      I totally agree, but IMO you should keep in shape if it enables you to be prepared and able to go home at the end of the day. As far as entrance, if no one is making you do it; its your life.

                      • I can't remember where I read this, but recall seeing somewhere a CBPO gets several paid hours a week to workout at a gym. Can anyone confirm this? I workout and run already, but it would be even better to be paid for it

                          They don't make anyone brush their teeth either, but I'll bet people see the advantage of not letting their teeth rot out of their heads.

                          For those needing a difference, look around at any other LEO job. Being fit should make you healthier, make working easier, and as FLCP said...when you do(and it'll happen) have to go hands on with someone, you'll last long enough in the fight to get the job done.

                            Negative.

                            It's not happening, and it's not in any pipeline that I'm aware of.

                              Ahh...no.

                              I'm not saying that doesn't happen, at some places and at some times, but most places don't have Officers standing about all day in a booth...and most places don't have the staffing to send out a "blue wave" whenever something comes up.

                                You're going to be flying back home during training? That might be tough.
