    I think so too but you should be able to leave NYC once you become a cop but it's not going to happen.

      • A history lesson is called for here: In 1973, 2 tests were given for the title of Uniformed Court Officer, as the job expanded wildly. The requirements then were a college degree, military service or 3 years as a police officer. About 3,000 total were on the lists. A few years later OCA gave another test, over 100K took that test. That test was challenged on racial discrimination lines and the results thrown out. OCA then worked to set standards and devise a test that could not be challenged. No test since then has been successfully fought. The test is written at a 12th grade reading level and whether or not you have a degree you must have pretty decent reading comprehension skills. I do not know if a study was ever done to see if the racial composition of the job changed with the test. I do know that there are more women on the job today than when I started, but that might be a societal change. Remember this, OCA reacts strongly to criticism. OCA does not truly care about the number of minorities or women on the job as long as they are not criticized.
