  • Jan 5th '09 - CPD Metro

    I've noticed that it's quite a few of us (recruits) heading to CPD Metro on 1/5/2009 from several different agencies. First off let me say congratulations to each and every one of you who've made it to the academy. Second I'd like to say I wish everyone a successful experience in the academy. Third, if you have any questions about the academy share them in this thread.

    Here's some general info I can share that I know so far about the academy.

    1) POWER test is December 30th at 0800 hours. For those of you who fail the POWER test you will be given a 2nd chance to pass within 48-72 hours.

    2) The academy officially starts Jan 5th 2008.

    3) From 0640 till ______(someone help me out here)_____

    4) Parking is limited! For you guys who've never been in the area, take it from someone who knows the area very well.......between police parking, recruit parking, 911 center parking, Whitney Young parking, and neighborhood parking.......it will be tough to find a space. My advice is either carpool, or atleast show up early enough to get a good space. Also, DONT PARK IN TOW ZONES, OR RESIDENTAL AREAS (with restrictions)......they tow and ticket often over there. You don't want to be known as "that guy."

    5) The academy is 13 weeks and ends 3/27/09 (I could be wrong, but this is what I've heard).


    For you guys that have been through CPD Metro if you have any advice, PLEASE SHARE.

    As the weeks go on share your experiences. Once again....good luck
