    Can anyone point out how the old N.S.U.'s are different than today's IMPACT?

      But it's certainly no real traditional FTO program, such as getting assigned to an RMP and having one Senior Officer train one Rookie and being with him the whole time. Isn't it more like a whole bunch of Rookies with one Impact Sergeant they have to reach over the air?

        After impact, if you are assigned to Patrol, are you in a car or on foot post? Just curious, wasn't sure if Impact was the bulk of those on foot patrol.

        Housing, are you in a car or are you just posted in a specific building area/building for the duration of your shift?
        I can't give facts except for the housing question but opinion on why Transit is desirable, lots of OT, not a lot to do, so I've heard.

        As for Housing, you will be a foot post working 11x7, or 6x2. You will have a partner and other posts covering the neighboring developments, you're not a solo like some patrol posts like the 28 posts on 125. you have certain buildings assigned to your post but you can go anywhere in the development you want. Just do your verticals, pick up your jobs and wait while central ignores you b/c you have a new location for the 12th time that day. PS in the winter you're inside looking for CT collars not freezing on the street corner somewhere. Any other housing Impact questions just PM me.

          No idea. From what I heard from here is that you're basically learning to become the Master of Summonses and 240.20's (Disorderly Conduct). To me it seems like a bad way to learn the job.

            lol there is no such thing as "failure rate"
            no one fails impact. if you bring in **** activity, you WILL be getting some very special collars at the end of tour courtesy of your bosses
            no one really didn't make it. only people that resigned did so because of personal reasons, getting jammed up, or getting an offer from another department

              After a while I heard you could get an RMP or some community project thing rather then stay on a post.

                huh?

                They are all posts until the new class or 2 comes out and kicks them into regular PSA's. Even then they wont see an RMP and are still stuck in UMBRELLA or whatever other new thing they will have out doing verticals.

                  Is it possible to ever get out of a PSA and go into a regular Precinct?

                      It is possible, but it does not happen often. Knowing someone might be a help.

                      Most people I know that have been in Housing and a Precinct, usually preferred Housing.

                        Any particular reason that they gave you? Housing busier? Just looking for the day to day routine of everything to get a better idea of what one can expect.

                          I would have loved to go to housing.

                          Although way more domestics/family issues. Less details, less of a lot is sometimes a good thing.

                          True, the buildings STINK, the elevator has rust holes from urine, the stairs have feces all over it and just about everyone in it hates you.. but its something I personally like as opposed to patrol.

                          Would I go now, no way. I am in a great command and am doing mighty fine where I am now.

                            That's why transit is awesome. Never deal with domestics, car accidents(par), 61's, no writing parkers and movers, no foot posts in the freezing cold, and when we get details, you stay in transit underneath the madness.

                              I feel I wouldn't like that. I'd like to work in a normal command, responding to 911's to regular residences and businesses in a car, getting flagged down, etc. What most Police Officers elsewhere do.

                              I'm sure it's nice to be in a Subway when everyone else outside is freezing their ***es off, but everything you listed I'd want to deal with. You also get to deal with the complete opposite in the summer - while everyone is out in the breeze, you're roasting yourself.
