  • Part time academy

    The local police department wants to put me through the part time police academy. What exactly does the entail?

      Thanks man. That was actually very helpful. I have to call the chief today to see what classes are available. Hopefully it’s something soon.

    count your lucky stars. Instead of the state police academy, like many locals go through, you will have a college like experience as opposed to a mock marine corps boot camp experience.

      I would rather be full time, not sure how long that would take. Interesting side note, I spent 4 years in the Corps, so I’d love to see how they would compare themselves to that.

      If you can get the part time certification, it's not going to hurt your desire to be full time. It's more training, more experience you'll have that other applicants won't.

    You’d appreciate it. My TAC (teaching, assessing, correcting) officer was a Marine. They steal a lot of Marine Corps things, from the yellow footprints in the parking lot, to squaring corners, etc. I didn’t personally learn much of anything about policing from that academy. I learned how to march, keep my eyes staring straight ahead, and make a rack with a perfect 4 inches of sheet at the top. You aren’t a 21 year old kid that might need the discipline like some of my recruit classmates did, so you wouldn’t really benefit from the experience. Trust me, you’re better off with one of the other academies like SWIC.
