      What boots do you have? Would you recommend them? Some suggest a second pair of boots, what are your thoughts?
      Im looking into either the Danner Recon or the Thorogood Station boots (with the zipper removed).
      Thank you!

      He also said you can have side Zippers

        • Any suggestions as to how to study for the written exam?. I'm taking it in November and I want to start prepping for it. I am highly considering buying these two books, but what do you guys think?

            Just go with the CHP specific one, the test is pretty basic stuff. Don't over think it.

            • I have posted this before, just in case you didn't see it.

              Words of wisdom to those who are attending the academy.
              1. You are owed nothing
              2. Life isn't "fair" , so get that out of your head.
              3. Your reputation at the academy follows you to your office.
              4. Honesty is the only policy.
              5. Hard work and being squared away makes life a lot easier.
              6. The academy sucks, but it's worth it.
              7. Staff office see's all.
              8. PT staff are not human. This has been proven...
              9. Don't be "that guy", if your classmates critique your attitude or the way you're acting. LISTEN!
              10. Treat your Jr. class with respect and help them as much as possible.
              11. EVOC is a blast. Don't stress
              12. Do what your told, and listen. You'll only be told things one time.
              13. Hiding food in your lockers is perfectly acceptable and in fact you'll probably be rewarded for it. Especially if your'e on the training table. (Sarcasam)
              14. Stay off of social media, no one needs to know your day to day life, where you are and what you're doing.
              15. Once again, you are owed nothing, you earn everything. And it can be taken away quickly.
              16. Good luck

                Can you list some extra things we should bring that aren't on the list?

            • Has anyone quit their job for the academy and had to purchase health insurance for it? Mine ends day I quit and have to have it for the academy.

                You will do all of your insurance and benefits paperwork the first day, i believe it takes effect after the first month you are there. And as far as what to bring, just bring what is on the list. Then get with your seniors or cadets that have been there prior to see what else you'll need.

                  It says you have to have your physicians info for day 1. What if I don't have one

              • Hey Guys, I'm new to the Forum. I was in the Hiring process with the CHP in 2016 and finished everything and was waiting for an academy invite. Long story short, I deployed and returned this last May. I've been in contact with my BI and had my Psych Oral 08/25/2017 and just found out a couple days ago I cleared medical. I was hoping to get into the Oct academy but that one seems out of reach. Does anyone know when the academy after that starts?

                  I believe mid January. You might get a last minute invite

              • Cool thanks man. And yeah I'm hoping to get in the Oct academy but we will see.

                Not sure who you are asking but I'll chime in. I've done 5 ride alongs and everyone of them was different and informative. I did grave yards in east sac on a 12 hour shift where we did a dui bust and saw county jail and hospital. North sac did afternoon and learned a lot. Stockton morning when it was flooding. South sac I did afternoon and had some accidents. Do as many as you can and just pick different times

                  Wow Thanks! Good to know. I will be doing them in Vallejo, East bay area. Hopefully I will get to experience some action like you did. I know that they were asking me how many I'm available for an I will now take as many as I can. At first I thought one would be enough. But by your experience they were all informative in in different ways.
