  • lateralling before probation is up?

    Are their any southern ca. depts. that will pick you up prior to completing your probation? A few of us were wondering if this happens, and what depts. if any accept this?

    You probably won't be a lateral if you do. To lateral, you generally need a POST Basic certificate, and you can't get your Basic until you complete probation.

      There are departments in Orange and L.A. County that will pick you up as academy trained.... I know Santa Ana and Anaheim will and some of the smaller agencies in L.A. County....

        If possible, stay with your current department at least until you've received your POST basic certificate. After that, you're much more marketable, and you may be elgible for lateral bonus offers and a higher pay grade.

        If you do leave your current agency prior to earning your POST, then, you will only be considered a pre-service (academy graduate).

        When you are hired by any new agency, you will have to pass their field training, and their probation term. Just because you've completed one agency's training and probation doesn't mean you'll pass everyones...which means they could terminate you for not being the "right fit" for the department.

          Some departments like Riverside Police Department, and Palm Springs Police take you if you are not off probation and they consider you as laterals. Some refer to you as police officer entry because you have not worked for another agency but have passed the basic academy, like COD or if you pay your way through ben clark or Rio Hondo. I would wait to be off of probation and be eligible for the post certificate

            Wait the year. You are almost there, and get the POST Basic. Have something to show for your time, man....unless there are issues brewing you haven't spilled the beans on....

                  Most people bleed green and tan until they find out how much money they are bleeding out of your check for the first three years.

                    + 10 !!! you and ImachU are more than right- people from dept to dept DO talk. Believe me, there are NO b*tchin; or BETTER depts out there !( we just had several probationary officers jump ship to LAPD because they bought the "hype" they were fed in the LAPD academy, BUT now 5/8 want to come back -they actually "lost" $2K/yr in pay and have a longer FTO/probation) you are NOT going to get "more action" or a cushy spot by jumping-and the $$$ ????
