    • Do you ride with a partner like NYPD or is just you alone in your patrol car?

        It depends on a few things. Which district, manpower, and how many vehicles are available. You could be riding with a partner, or you could be riding by yourself.

    • When you get scheduled for medical and polygraph do they email you and how soon after you conditional offer of hire

        You'll get a call to schedule medical and then an email for Poly.
        out of state applicants do testing 2 days in a row.

    • Cool thanks what's the process for a medical retake like if you have to loose body fat or have your doctor send some information over. Like how soon do they reschedule you

        So I had medical yesterday. The nurse said if you have over 29 % body fat as a male and 34 % as a female, you will be placed on a 9 week program to get your weight under control. I’m not sure if you have to report back to the clinic or have your personal doctor send information over.

            November 21st.

        • Any body get the call to join that class

          Comment


          • Hey, what’s everyone.

            For those joining and about to start the academy, good luck. I left MPD after 4 years on 9/30/22. I will say that once you’re done in the academy and get assigned your district, don’t go out there and be a hard Charger or cowboy/cowgirl trying to lock everyone up. Also, please please PLEASE don’t be proactive. It may sound funny, but MPD frowns upon proactive policing. I won’t go into detail, but it’s a reason why lots of people are leaving the department in alarming numbers since the summer of 2020. I’ll let you guys see for yourselves once you go out there. Other then that, just be safe. Always back each other up!

              They won't listen, but this is 100% true. I'd argue that Officers shouldn't even go "beyond the call" if its a call for service. There are entire blocks where MPD has lost lost control because the residents will create a Use of Force situation. That ushers in the UoF investigation, then an OPC complaint, throw in a BWC or uniform violation, all of which will be used against you in court (turning a prelim into a two hour ordeal) on your day off. The OPC complaint will drag on for four to six months which affects your Giglio (for those who actually still care enough to apply for arrest warrants).

              HR told me that roughly 40 Officers are leaving per month when I put in my paperwork.

              The fact that they are using graffiti to advertise new pay raises should tell applicants all they need to know about MPD. Place is nowhere near what it used to be...

              Yo, on 9/30/22 when I left, they actually had an event at the academy for people leaving to turn in their stuff..lol. On that day, it was 12 people leaving. I couldn’t stop laughing because it got to the point that they had to have an “EVENT” to process people out..lmfao! I just had enough with coming to work dreading and hoping to not get into anything that could hinder my job. I got tired of getting held over. I would literally Be on the edge of my seat around 4:30am(I worked midnights) praying I don’t get held over. You literally would have to plan your day if you get held over or not. What’s makes it worse is, they would expect you to COME to work functional that same night AFTER working midnights and daywork. Of course, I would just call out sick/use a 3 day optional. Clearly not healthy to do that. That right there should tell you the crappy culture MPD is.

              Yeah, they just got a pay bump, but it’s really not worth it.

              If you want to join a specialized unit like CST or GRU, forget it. Those are the specialized units that get into the most trouble and burned through the media. Not to sound disgruntled, but this is all facts!

              I was assigned to the 3rd district. So, the chief discovered a pattern as far as people leaving that specific district, so one of the advisors called me that’s working with the chief to get my brutally honest opinion as to why I left and such. I pretty said everything without no filter. She told me 3D alone has lost 45 officers in the last 6-9 months. She had to call all the people who has left within that time frame in that specific district. Right now, 3D is losing the most officers in an alarming rate at this moment. It’s really bad..

          • Questions for current or former MPD officers.


            What schedule do MPD officers work ,how many days on and off?



            What is the Arrest Processing like paperwork wise? Are you done with your perp after you hand them to jail or the court or do you have to sit on them if they have a history?


            Is it common to work 24 hours straight with no relief?




            Are you often hit for overtime on your days off?

                  --What schedule do MPD officers work ,how many days on and off?

                  Four days on, three days off.


                  --What is the Arrest Processing like paperwork wise? Are you done with your perp after you hand them to jail or the court or do you have to sit on them if they have a history?

                  Arrests are processed at the district station, we don't have a central booking type facility. Arrestees are transfered to the station via a transport vehicle. You as the arresting officer will process the prisoner property and/or evidence at the station and complete the arrest paperwork. It's a straightforward process. The only time you're stuck with a prisoner is if he/she has to go to the hospital prior to the arrest for medical reasons.


                  --Is it common to work 24 hours straight with no relief?

                  No. That would be a violation of the MPD general orders. We work 10 hour tours during regular weeks and 8 hour tours if there is a federal/city holiday during the week.


                  --Are you often hit for overtime on your days off?

                  This being Washington DC, there are from time-to-time "mandatory activations" due to massive civil unrest and "first amendment activities," which trigger a full department activation, and (sometimes) even 12 hour tours during the activation period and (sometimes) no days off during the activation -- see year 2020. I've never been called in on a day off for general patrol overtime.

                    Pretty much, don’t check your emails when you’re off. It’s not required on the G.O. If it’s a full department activation and the email was out while you’re off it on leave, it’s nothing they can do..lol. I learned that the hard way in the summer of 2020 lol. 12 hour shifts with no days off for nearly a month and some change. That was what made a lot of leave. That’s when I realized the money wasn’t worth it.

                • MPD has a Saturday prospect day coming up on on December 10, 2022. Usually, prospect days are on Friday mornings which can be a challenge for those prospects coming from out of state.

                  If you're interested in joining MPD, and you aren't local, you should consider the Sat. Dec 10th prospect day as there probably won't be another weekend prospect day for some time.
