        Since their department allows them to carry, the department and the county would indemnify them.

            Are you kidding? I heard nothing like that. And even if he is against it, there are other unions such as the APSBA and NYSAAP who might be for it. The APBA isn't the only association for NYPD Aux PO's.

                I agree. The APSBA is the union that has been fighting for change for the Program. The only thing the APBA is good for is the optional dental and optical plans it offers its members.

                  Auxiliary Cops Seek Gains In Stature and Training; Class Graduates Next Spring-TC

                  By TOMMY HALLISSEY

                  The year-old Auxiliary Police Supervisors Benevolent Association is gearing up for the first Auxiliary Police Officer graduation, at the end of March or the beginning of April, since training for such officers became more uniform and regimented after the fatal shooting of two Auxiliaries 20 months ago.

                  A Class of 800

                  The Auxiliary Police, which now has a headquarters in Kew Gardens staffed with an NYPD commanding officer, has about 800 men and women in the graduating class that started in September. The ceremony will be held at either Columbia University or Riverside State Park. The training featured classes one day a week for four months. Never before was there an auxiliary graduation because admission into the organization was scattered across the city at the precinct level. There are now plans for two classes a year just like the Police Department.

                  William Rivera, the founder of the APSBA, recently met with Police Commissioner Raymond W. Kelly to discuss his organization's needs. "We are the free police," he said. "We don't cost the city a penny, that's our plea." He asked the Commissioner for an assortment of things, including batons and MACE for his officers, which he suggested could be used on a trial basis in a pilot program with Auxiliary supervisors.

                  Mr. Rivera said the new more-formalized training for auxiliaries should help to improve the career path. "Right now, it looks good on a resume, but it is not really a stepping-stone," he said. "We want it to not just look good on the resume, but put points on the test for Police Officer."

                  The deaths of Auxiliary Police Officers Nicholas T. Pekearo, 28, and Yevgeniy Marshalik, 19, who were responding to a call following a murder at a Greenwich Village pizzeria in March 2007, spurred Mr. Rivera to form this association, which is separate from the Auxiliary Police Benevolent Association. The deaths of these two officers, he said, were a catalyst for the NYPD to implement a more centralized borough-based approach to training auxiliaries. "We don't want this to happen again," Mr. Rivera said. "We need better tools, better equipment and better training." At the graduation, the valedictorian of the class will be presented with an award in the name of the two murdered auxiliaries.

                  Seek Stiffer Assault Penalties

                  Legislatively, the association plans to continue a push for a felony assault bill for Auxiliary Police because currently those who assault such officers only face a misdemeanor. "We want them to know when you assault an Auxiliary Police Officer, it's a felony," Mr. Rivera said. "We need to be protected like other agencies equally." After years of lobbying, Traffic Enforcement Agents got similar protection last summer.

                  Also on the agenda of the nascent organization is a Volunteer Peace Officers' Benefit Bill, which would legitimize volunteer officers, such as the NYPD Auxiliaries, by giving them Peace Officer status. This legislation would establish recruiting and training standards as well as provide deserved benefits.

                  U.S. Sen. Chuck Schumer stepped in after a public outcry to award the Federal Public Safety Officer Benefit to the two Auxiliary Police Officers murdered in Greenwich Village last year because they were not Peace Officers and ineligible for that benefit. The bill is currently stuck in committee in both houses of the State Legislature.

                  • Does anyone get any trouble from MTA train clerks/bus drivers when you try to get in for free?

                    I'm always trying to get in through wearing my cargo pants, NYPD turtleneck, NYPD bag with baton on the side and the subway clerk always gives me a hard time, they say I am not wearing full uniform. He let me through but said next time be in full uniform. I keep the jacket in my bag since I don't want to leave my home in full uniform and let everyone know in my area that I'm volunteering for NYPD

                      thanks
                      We can ride for free both on and off duty as long as we wear full uniform, but they tend to argue if I were to wear everything except my jacket which is in my bag. I always leave my equipment belt and jacket in bag since I don't want to be noticed on the streets while leaving home.

                      Would be nice if we can ride for free without uniform. Would be so comfortable and feel lighter since I don't have to carry everything back & forth to station house and home.

                            I am just trying to minimize the amount of things I have to carry that has nypd logo. The cargos can give it away a little bit since I have seen crossing guards, traffic, school safety, security guards and those people who cleans the park wearing them because of the extra pockets. So far I leave my bag/baton in my locker and just wear my turtleneck and cargo. The turtleneck won't be that obvious to the public since I have it hidden and I only unzip my jacket when I'm getting inside the subway or the bus and than I zip my jacket up.

                            Usually the other cops don't give any trouble. They tell me if I have any trouble getting into the subway than I should just go through the gate since the clerk can't really do anything but call for a Police Officer which all they going to do is ignore the clerk for making a big ruckus out of nothing.

                            I could take either the bus (which leaves me across the street from the precinct) or the subway which leaves me 4 streets away from the precinct. I only take the subway if the bus is delayed because of the ice or if the bus already left. The bus drivers don't give me any problems they just let me in and I stand at the back of the bus next to the rear exit.

                              Why on earth would you be wearing your uniform off-duty. I'm hoping you say it's just to get to and from work.

                              • I don't think we are allow to be in uniform off-duty. Not even if we are going to our commands, and leave our commands to our homes.
