      Got a call from a buddy of mine today saying my BI called him and he's sending him a form to fill out about me, so i guess that's progress? Guess he's now contacting references. No idea where I'll live if I move down there for the academy lol.

        How did you set up to go on a ride along?

            No, I did not. I did, however, get hit with two flash bangs when they did their vehicle extraction exercises at Dickman.

              ...

              Just remember if you make it to the streets; top priority is that you and your shift get home safely every night, regardless of the nonsense. "Don't get captured."
              I have a theory about that and I think they SA's office wants these criminals dead. I cannot count how many of the repeat offenders in my district have ended up dying of acute lead projectile poisoning. Case cleared by exception.

              If you do get captured, save the last bullet for yourself. Thanks Ofc Grasso!

                God never promised that it would be easy, just that he would be there with you every step of the way.

                  Yeah just call where ever you think you want to go. I was originally going to do mine in the north eastern district but one of my buddies that's currently NJSP, that was Baltimore PD hooked me up with one of his buddies that is in the western. Trust me if you’re out of state and think you want to be Baltimore PD do a couple rides especially in the western district. You will know by the end of the ride along if this isn’t for you. I’m from NJ and we have our rough areas around here, but Baltimore is just on a whole different level!!

                  On a side not my BI just told me to keep my phone next to me and that I should be hearing something soon!

                      You have no idea bud. But yeah the golden rule in LE is "No news is good news" that's what my B.I told me when we first spoke.

                        I'm just going to step in for a moment. If you are interested in this department, just do a ride along. All nine districts have their quirks, their own advantages and disadvantages. Historically speaking, the Western and Eastern district have reputations for being the most violent offenders. To my knowledge, the Western District was the homicide king of 2015. However, I field trained in the NED and it is its own special kind of madness. It's the largest district and, thus, has a reputation as being the most busy at the worst time of year, summer. The call volume can often put Charlie shift out with 40 to 50 calls in the hole at 5 PM. Reread that for a moment, that's not even the most call intense part of the day! Baker and Charlie shift units are often answering 12 to 20 calls in a single shift.

                        The call volume and the raw size of the district leaves it difficult for anyone to really be proactive. At the NED, they refer to that as being "a slave to the call". Your back-up can, quite literally, be miles away from your location at any given time. I think that makes for a good gauging experience in as much as any other district. Want to see what level of independence you will need to survive? Want to see all sorts of different calls over the course of 10 hours?

                        Even as a trainee, that district provided its own advantages. Prior to field training, you are given a manual with a checklist of various skills/activities to demonstrate in field training. It isn't necessary that all of it be completed, they cannot guarantee that in 10 weeks. It's simply to be used as a meterstick to determine your ability to apply what you've learned. Three of us field trained in the NED and, of the entire class of 40ish, we were the only ones with anywhere near a majority of that thing completed.

                        Just do a ride along. Worry about that district thing after you've received your assignments.

                          Completely agree.

                            Me either, lol. But a buddy of mine called me and said my BI called him and is sending him a form to fill out about me (similar to our neighbor reference forms).

                            • That is what I'm starting to hear. I completed my poly a month ago. Prior to all this, my BI was in full constant communication with me. After the poly, haven't heard from BI for a month now. I think poly didn't go too well. Examiner was trying to get me to "confess" but i didn't have anything to say. I was being honest. After, he says I will have to look at this closely. That was a month ago and I have called BI, emailed, left message, no response.

                              Is this normal?Any takes?

                                I'm not sure about your poly to be honest, my examiner told me then and there that I passed with no issues.. But I feel like they'd have told you if you'd failed too. As for the BI not telling us anything I'm going under the assumption that they're finishing our packets and talking to references / employers, etc. I could be wrong, though.
