          No they don't swear you in during this time. This time is paper work, lots of it and we went over policy and our general orders. We then selected a date that best suited us to start work... They do that because it allows you to ask your bosses for one or two week notices... Depends where you work. I work for a security company and My boss who is a Bpd officer of 30 years actually said I can go head and resign and that I was more than welcomed back for part time after graduation..... My swear in date is Monday...... Along with another recruit...

            Oh I gotcha. That's awesome man, congrats again. I'll probably need a week since I have to move from out of state and find a place lol. I'm sure you're super excited, did they tell you where you're going to work before the academy?

                Waiting on the psych and medical now, that's all that's left. I did the poly early last week. Now it's the waiting game until they finish my BI and schedule my last steps. Hope they let me into the next academy, fingers crossed I'll join ya!

                    I think you will. It's the "hurry up and wait" thing that gets me lol. You'll probably be the next guy saying you're in

                    • Was told by our major that SEVEN of the officers who just came off of foot patrol are leaving for other agencies. That to go along with 6 city officers who just got calls from AA County for lateral. And all the guys retiring as well. Man we're hurting for bodies....

                              We weren't lying to any of you, and neither were the people who were saying this stuff when we were trying to get hired too. This isn't just laterals either, before anyone thinks this is a problem limited to this one department. I can count a number of my coworkers who intend to finish their police careers this year and they've only got a year or two on the job. They aren't just ready to leave the department, they are ready to leave the profession entirely.

                                Guess it takes a special kind of dedication / crazy to stay on BPD. I like a challenge lol. Be careful out there man
