    What is the max allowed for the force?

    I'm hearing anywhere from 20-50. The first contract is to be completed Fall 2010, so I bet that most of those in the current academy class will be detailed to a detachment then sent down there as it slowly opens up.

    What do you mean by max allowed?

The physical is scheduled for 19th. Anyone else was there? They took many people out right before the orientation. I assume probably due to drug usage.
      How many people where there?

      It's a long process. PM me if you have any questions.

          Is that what they are saying? LOL. They are going to put it out to all of the vetern officers first before sending you guys down there.

              haha owned... jk.

              Thats the only thing that I really don't like about MdTA... The airport duty. I'm sure its nice and everything, but I just don't see myself having a good work day being inside an airport all day long. Getting on a plane in the airport is stressful enough.

                That's part of the job. Either take it or leave it. Everyone has to start somewhere.

                  Hey I understand... I'd deffinatly take it, no questions asked. All I'm saying is... I feel sorry for the officers there that don't wanna be there. Like the Sgt's and Corporal's... not officers right out of the academy.

                    You're not in the airport all day. Can't beat the BWI schedule either.

                      What I was referring to was the academy coming down and working during the Thanksgiving weekend.

                      Most people who work at the airport want to be there. You cant beat the schedule and its really not that bad. It all depends on if you want to work in a car and run traffic all day or work a mix of running traffic and working inside. Minus some of the bridge detachments backing up other departments for calls for service, the airport is about as full service as our agency gets.

                      We get our thefts, drunks, disorderlys, domestics, and whatever else happens at the airport. I feel its a good mix but it can get old at times just like with anything else.

                      We work 12 hour days, 14 days a month. We get everyother weekend off too.

                      Not too much OT available. There is some but its not a lot.

                        Did anyone else take turn in their personal history packets recently? I passed the October PAT and turned in my info in 7 days (10/28) and I'm waiting to be scheduled for the oral board now and the wait is killing me. I know I'm not the only applicant and these things take time so I'm resisting the urge not to call every day (not to mention I don't want to become "that" guy and **** off the recruiting and selection unit.)
                        Switching gears for a second, what exactly does the HEAT team do? It sounds high speed but I'm not sure I understand their mission.

                          Try to not think about the wait because the process will take a while.

                          The HEAT team does different types of interdiction work using unconventional police vehicles. That is a specialized unit you earn your way into through hard work and notable arrests.

                            Yeah, I'm trying to look at the wait as more time to train. Thanks for the info on the HEAT team. Sounds interesting enough but for now it's all about getting through the hiring process.

                              You weren't kidding I received a letter not too long ago that I am scheduled for an oral board interview in early January. Am I correct in assuming that asking at the interview when they think the next academy is to start is in poor taste? As you might imagine I'd like to know but not at the risk of rubbing my potential employers the wrong way.

                                They probably won't know, so I would ask them a different question if you are given the opportunity. Ask your background investigator when you are assigned one. If I knew when the next academy started I would tell you, but who knows
