    I hear it takes about 4-5 years to even be considered for road patrol. Also, rumor has it they are leaving the JOCO academy and starting their own?

      There are numerous officer's within the last few years that worked in the jail for 6-7 months and are already on patrol. Some already had patrol experience, as well as officer's new to the field. When patrol comes open, anyone in the agency (as long as they are off of training phase) are allowed to put in for patrol, so there is not a time requirement in the jail as a pre-requisite...it is all based off of how well you do during the interview, testing, evaluation process and then you are ranked based on the cumulative score. You also have the opportunity to go to one of the many other divisions to gain additional experience (besides detention) before going to patrol. So, long and short of it is....Yes, you start in the jail....but you are, by no means, "stuck" in the jail for 4-5 years unless you want to be.

      As far as not going to the JCCC Academy anymore, that is correct. Our agency has their own academy now for the new-hires. They just started with it, and I believe are currently running their first class through right now. I had an opportunity to tour the new training facility and it seems way nicer than what we had before for all our core training (in-service training).

          Don't know how much OT will be available after hiring this many...but by the time they get everyone hired and trained up, and counting for attrition...there should still be some OT for all the unscheduled leave (i.e. sick, FMLA, etc.)

              I am somewhat amazed by the pay in that area. I have in-laws that live in OP, that the wife and I visit frequently. We currently reside in Texas, where I have been employed with an agency since 01. We would have loved to relocate to the area. Better quality of life, better schools, basically better everything. I was suprised though about agencies pay in the area. The cost of living seems so much higher there that it is here, but the pay is significantly higher here. Makes no sense to me.

                I guess I havent shopped around much for other state's salaries. It only takes 2 years to get to the Class A pay, and pre-certified officers typically start out there.

                    The more I think about it, pay is not that different. Being a supervisor here and 14 years on, making a little over 70K. So that makes a move that much more harder. I didn't mind the idea of starting over in patrol, I love the streets. Just losing about 30k, that's stings a little too much.

                      Well that's a pretty significant decrease, so I don't blame you!

                        I'm just trying to get out with any Joco agency, but preferably Olathe or Lenexa.

                          Also the cost of living/houses/etc. varies very much from city to city within Johnson County...good rule of thumb is the farther south in the county is more "rural" and housing prices can be as much as 30-40k less than similar houses in OP, Lenexa, Shawnee, etc. Areas like Spring Hill, and even Garner you seem to get more "bang for your buck" when it comes to housing. And Gardner isnt really a small town, still has ammenities such as Walmart, QuickTrip, fast food, Price Chopper, etc. Just food for thought.

                            I belive Olathe is FOP, Lenexa is not. I dont think either has residency restrictions
                            Both agencies stay busy, Olathe probably slightly moreso, as its a larger city. Spanish would be a good 2nd language to know/acquire but not mandatory. Try a ride along with both to see the area and people

                              Was thinking of trying to schedule a ride along while I am there for the next couple of weeks. So many agencies and so little time. Any recommendations on which agency I should aim for?
