The stock Kimber ones in my opinion leave something to be desired. My buddy is processing for an agency in Virginia, and after his ride along he noted that the carry gun is HK. I'm jealous.
    My friend also has the Kimber TLE II. Though when I first got to shoot it it only had like 150-200 rounds through it. I believe he does have the Wilson Combat mags if I'm not mistaken.

    HK for carry gun? I'm jealous too.

      It doesn't sound like they are interested in laterals . You start out at the same shvt pay $42,000 and you go through the entire 6 month academy. For a dept. that is need I would think they would welcome laterals .

        are you out of state? if so, you will find that Maryland has a strict standard for which lateral officers can be accepted. if BPD doesnt accept you, you will probably find that no agency in MD will accept you as a lateral. in state laterals to BPD, you do a lateral class or 2-3 weeks.

        • Well got the call from my background investigator today. It went as follows:

          Phone rings, Me listening to melodic metal on my computer, I hear it, my labtop goes flying, try to grab the phone at the same time trying to shut my computer up, pick up phone, which I then proceed to drop to the ground : thus hanging up on my background investigator= Oh a goood move on my part.

          I immediately call the number back, get a Sgt. who tries to connect me to the Detective that called me, this is all the while the Detective is trying to call me back. End result I got in contact with my background investigator.

          Meeting him next week at HQ.

                • I have a question that has probably been asked 100's of times. During the agility test where do you run (indoors, outdoors, track or down the sidewalk) any info will help.

                        Hey all,

                        Just finished reading this whole thread, only took me two days. Anyway thanks for all who contributed, it's a great source of info. I took my written on 9/17/09 and am just waiting on getting scheduled for my physical. I notice at least one of you guys posting took your written on the same day, mine was at the Learning Bank. Quick question for any current BPD officers, does BPD still hire you before your academy and employ you? or does your employment start on your first day of the academy? I know they use to "pre-hire" you but I'm not sure if this still happens. Thanks all.
