            Yes, but the apts are still pretty reasonable. Housing should be down quite a bit.

            At $100K annual, can you imagine the OT rate they are fetching?

                Cool. How long does it take to get to the top step?

                      This is where Palo Alto PD goes too, correct?

                          That is what I thought, but when I was there for the PAT someone told me that PAPD utilized SJ and The Academy..

                          Thanks

                            Just to clarify San Jose does have a interagency training agreement and some of the more recent academies (within the last 2.5 years) have had recruits from Los Gatos, Palo Alto, San Bruno, Morgan Hill and I believe Mountain View PD's.
                            Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.

                              Quote from SJPD website.

                              "Not only do we train our own Police Recruit Officers but we also train recruit police officers from other law enforcement agencies. "
