  • Best CPD Training Districts

    Okay, forgive me for getting a little ahead of myself but as some of you already know I had a final power test for the 2013 CPD list last weekend and we're waiting for the call for a tentative 9/29/14 academy class. So...what's a good district to train/learn police work in?

    This is not an original question by any means. I came across a thread titled: "Best Training Districts" but it was posted 8 years ago and I wanted to hear some new feedback from either the Veteran Officers or even new Recruits that trained in different districts across the city. I've lived where 008 borders 007 my whole life. I would love to train there if it's even possible to in my home district. Whatever you could share is appreciated.Thanks!

    UPDATE!: I GOT THE CALL!

      I know that if you do well physically you get to pick the district you go to. I personally want to go to 025 or 09 which are both training districts now.

        You're dreaming. Jk! Northside? "MAYBE" 009 for TRAINING ONLY!!! Unless you're a marksman on the range or something lol. They'll probably let you have your pick then.

          Every district is a training district now with the exception of 18 & 12 (due to no FTO's the last I heard). Other than that, if you live on the north side, your training districts are north side. South side is south side, and if you live in central, you can go either way.

          25 was fun on mids for the record , lol.

          In the academy , if you hold the Academic award, Range award or Physical Fitness, you can "choose" which districts you get. Other than that, everyone can select where they would LIKE to go. Just doesn't mean you'll get it.

                  Yeah you're right but I was referring to 025. Hey don't get me wrong...I hope you get your first choice!

                    I have that downloaded on my phone for reference lol. So that's good to know...more choices then since most districts are available. I'm Area Central.

                      Yea I'm not gonna hold my breath for 025 but I have some familiarity with 09 since I do security there off duty.

                        I am somewhat confused. We get to request a district, every district is a training district except for 18 & 12? I thought new police officers get sent to impact zones...so does that mean every district except for 18 & 12 is an impact zone??

                          You request districts for training. While you are on probation, they can send you anywhere they want. After 3 months of FTO, new guys do go straight to Impact Zones. You'll sit in Impact Zones for the remainder of your probation basically. Just about the time of probation expiring, you will be assigned a district.

                          Most districts have Impact Zones. For new guys though, 90% will be on the south side somewhere. There was a handful from my class that were on the north side.

                              Thanks for the great info Raiden! If you had a choice NOW being OTJ, where would you do your FT (field training) time at? I technically live in Area Central and border Area South so I guess they could put me North or South. I've worked on the Northside (in a different capacity) but I'm more familiar with the Southside. Any suggessions?....assuming I actually had a say in this lol.
