    From what I hear its 3yrs. Because ur 1st 2 are probationary. But I know someone who went plain clothes after 21/2. I guess it all depends on the individual!

      My self and my partner left for flex in 10 months and 6 months respectively, before probation was over. Probation is 1 year long.

          It's district operation units, drugs, guns, burglaries, initiative details, plain clothes and uniform capacity.

            I didn't mean to put out wrong info. But the way it was explained to me was that your probation period was 2yrs long because that's how long it would take the city to recooperate the amount of money spent on training,uniforms and so forth.

            It was also explained that if you quit during that 2yr period you could be subject to fines by the city to have to be paid.

            Am I correct or can you clarify?

            I appreciate your input

                You theoretically have to pay money if you leave within 2 years.

                As far as I'm aware, between me and other people that I personally know that have left and what was told to us by a lawyer that taught us in the Baltimore academy... I wouldn't worry about it because you won't be paying.

                But, that is based on experience and I am not a lawyer and that should not be deemed as lawyer-esque advice.... So, if you do quit and have to pay, don't blame me!

                  So basically you're doing a little of everything?

                  • Out of most dept's in Md... would it be ok to say that this dept has a faster turnover to special assignments then others? Partly because of not enough officers? I see them recruiting all the time nonstop. They developed more recruiting videos and some organized info since i lasted looked.

                    Just assuming.

                          Did it say why you were rejected?
                          Neither a Republican nor Democrat, both parties are hopelessly flawed.

                          RIP to all my fallen brothers and sisters in blue I hope one day I can live up to your legacies because you live forever in my mind.

                          To anyone non-LEO don't get it twisted. Us officers may disagree on politics, sports, and any other issue but we will always be brothers and sisters at the end of the day and have each others back. To think otherwise is stupid.

                              No. Just that they "would not further process me as a Police Trainee at this time"

                              • It probably means you're done, but you might be able to apply in a year? Every agency is different. I would start applying elsewhere though.
