  • LVMPD 2019 Academy

    Figured to start a topic since there was one for 2018. Day Zero just started today and the November Class is coming up fast! Good luck to all those who are going to be called up to the November Academy!

    November class is coming, and in December/Jan, there should be another academy class. I also know next year Metro plans to have 3 CO academies for those that are interested(Same pay/benefits as a PO) Good luck to everyone.

                      Anyone on here been through the CO academy? I’m already in a LE position but I’d like to change it up. I’ve heard the CO academy is pretty hard too. Is their schedule 4 10s? I would love that. Also heard they have a ton of overtime to go around which I also would love.

                        You can always reach out to a recruiter for that info. I did hear that the COs make a killing in overtime.

                        The academy is shorter, but it's similar in terms of discipline. The PO side has a lot more tests. In terms of PT, it's similar. The big difference is that the academy for the PO side is in Northwest which has a lot of hills. So for the PO side, you will be running a lot of hills(especially with the Nov class tac staff). Pay is the same, however you will have more opportunities to do OT on the co side since you will work 12s rather than 10 hour shifts(more days off to do OT) The CO side works 12s. PO is 10s depending on the area command.

                        Congrats! I thought day zero was the 6th since graduation is on the 5th. Good luck. Study your 400 codes, you will need to know them.

                        I ranked 118 or something like that. Don't remember the exact number, but it wasn't great lol. That memory test in the beginning was killer.

                      Thanks for the response guys and congrats dt! I’m trying to PM you kimo a question. What gun do they use in the academy? Is there a list they send you or it is a single universal one?

                        You'll get a list in the academy. You will have a day in the academy for firearm selection. They recommend glock 9mm but it's completely up to you. Most people went with the glock 17. I personally went with the glock 19x. You can get any caliber but they try to encourage everyone to use 9mm. We had a couple people with S&W. You dont need the firearm on day 1. You'll need it in about 2 months after day 1. So save your money for later(you have to pay for your firearm) ps: once u get ur metro ID, you will be able to purchase guns at blue label price.

                        I remember a time when I wanted to hate glocks so bad, until I bought one lol. Now it became my gun of choice to carry for work and ccw. I'd be done cleaning my glock in the same amount of time itll take me to disassemble my 1911 lmao.

                        Once you need it- I still have a Safariland double retention holster for the Glock 17 with tac light. Its in great condition. I also have boxing gloves and headgear available. I still have a garment bag too. Good luck in the Academy- you will need it
