    Hey CJ arent you up for hire with MDPD??. What happened with that??. Why are you looking at different agencies for??. You are so close to getting hired on with MDPD arent you??. Plus I would add that you really dont want to get hired by Opa-Locka. Thats not really a good place to start off a career. If I were you I would aim elsewhere. Try looking at BSO or even corrections. That will get your foot in the door very easily.

    Yeah man, I'm just getting tired of waiting. I just heard that Opa Locka was an agency that doesn't take very long to hire. Just weighing my options.

    I would much rather get paid alot to run traffic in pinecrest and relax instead of humping call to call and getting paid jack for opalocka. shrug.

    LMAO!!!. I remember when I took a ride along with Pinecrest PD. All we ever did was speed enforcement for the whole day. When I asked the officer when was the last time he did an arrest he said " It's been about little over a year". Talk about breakfast club places. LMAO. I've seen more action in a Marine Corp base on friday nights than I would ever see if I worked with Pinecrest PD. LMAO!!!!.
    Well, on the bright side atleast those guys have jobs.

    The reason why I said it historic, because the building was registered as a historic place. The city was founded in 1926. And be registered as a historic place has to be over 50 years old. If someone wants to start their career there all power to them, the only thing they will walk with really good experience. When I was in the academy, my class and I, always talked about Opa-Locka. We all agreed that an officer that works in Opa-Locka for every year that he or she works there it equals two in experience.

    I dont know, I just dont recommend for anyone starting out either from military LE or just starting out green to start in an agency like that. Also, to tell you the truth. I really dont consider the city hall to be historic. Maybe its because I've seen other city halls that are older. I just dont consider it historic. If it had been 100 years then yeah I would consider it historic. Just my opinion on that.

    I do agree with you about the city, the problem is not with the department. The problem is with city hall, the mayor and his commisioners. They only care about how much money they can make. Also about the rats in city hall, remember that building is over 80 years old and its a historic site. Also the rats are the city mayor and the commision. The new chief is turning the department around. Trust me I witness it first hand.

    Well, the problem isnt only with OLPD. The problem is with the whole damn city in general. I read in the newspaper not too long ago that their city hall was infested with rats and that everytime someone would open up a cabinet a rat would jump out. Then you have the whole crisis about how their budgets seem to always get messed up. I have never heard anything at all come from that place that was ever good. I just dont think that for a person just starting out, OLPD would be a good choice. Their a bottom rung agency and there are a dime a dozen agencies that the thread starter could start in rather than OLPD. Everytime when one of my buddies from the service looks for jobs down here I always move them away from OLPD. That just isnt a good dept. But if someone is desperate enough to get into ANY agency then they should knock themselves out with OLPD and agencies like them.

    Why??????? Have you ever worked for Opa-Locka?? Or you just hearing it from people that don't work there. I know you are going to ask me if I ever worked for them and answer is NO, but worked with them. I know for a fact that most of the officers that work for OLPD are hard working officers. The city has changed alot in the last four years. Give them a chance.
