    Good grief...
    Most of the firings we get at my agency aren't for really crazy things. Mostly for lying (about arrests, about uses of force, about accidents, etc.) or DV stuff. We've had a few crazy ones. Not gonna post about them as I don't have first-hand knowledge of them.

    i'm surprised no one has mentioned the CNET narcs in nor cal who were selling dope/firearms to CI's, running brothels, and assisting a shady former cop/PI with setting people up for dirty DUI stops

    I was pre-service until the week before the academy (got hired by the first and only agency I applied to). Half the class was pre-service, others belonging to the large city agency the academy was in and 1 from the SO. Of the other pre-service people, all but one got hired prior to graduation and she got hired a few weeks later. All are still cops and doing well. Of the non-pre-service, the one from the SO got kicked out the start of day 2, then kicked out of the other academy... twice; from the PD, one got fired on FTO, one quit after a year to be a contractor in the sandbox, and one went out of precinct while on duty to visit a woman other than his wife, found her other man there, got into a foot chase with him, then shot and killed him after being attacked with a knife.

    We had a guy that was caught stealing tags off another officers cruiser because the number matched his badge number and was suspended. Later a suspect he assisted in arresting comes to the station to file a complaint. Claims he had his pitbull when he was arrested and never saw it since until he he saw it on craigslist being sold by the officer (the one already under investigation) who was there when he was arrested. He was canned.

    Had another citizen come into the lobby of the station and complain about the officer stealing his tags. When the supervisor went into the parking lot they found the citizens tags on the officers personal vehicle.

    Iowa does not have self sponsor. The legislature tried to change that this year in order to get the colleges into training officers rather than the state employees at the academy. (trying to save money)

    I lost track of most of my class. of 35................however 3 of us made it to 30 yrs...........2 of us 35+ .I was a Lt, the other old timer retired a couple months before me as a Sgt. (The other one who left at 30 yrs remained a PO, but now does the IT work for the department MDT's as a civilian.)

    We have self sponsored in Alaska and I have no problem with it, although several of the self sponsors in my class never got hired. Really, they're just wasting their own time and money; no skin off my back. You can't actually get certified here until you're hired.

    I had a guy I met through some LE community who was going to self sponsor. He had 5 adult felony convictions, the last one 3 years prior (23 years old when we chatted, which makes 5 felony convictions in less than 3 years). Oh...and he was 3 years into his CJ degree which means he was literally sitting in jail for a felony when he decided he wanted to be a cop. He was still on felony probation when we talked.

    I tried to explain that his odds of being hired were exactly 0, but he was sure determination would do it. He was going to show me. It's too bad the only positive thing he ever did with his life (go to school) was a waste of time. However, since it appeared he wasted his entire life up to this point at least he's following a pattern.

    A buddy of mine went through recruit school after the change. Of the 21 people in his academy class, only 6 are currently working as police officers. At least two that he knows of now have felony arrests.

    1 worked as a reserve and decided it wasnt for him

    Same with my self sponsor academy....They see dollar signs are don't have a problem giving a certificate to any Joe Blow.


    Class of 28:
    -One worked for 3 months; then made up a drive by shooting at his house. Certification revoked.
    -One was having martial problems; held himself up at his house and threatened to shoot himself and other officers. He's in the loony bin.
    -One made it ALL THE WAY through the Academy...But failed the run miserably. Never re-tested for the run and gave up.
    -One made it ALL THE WAY through the Academy....and a week before graduation was cited for careless driving, lost his license so he couldn't graduate.
    -One worked for one month. Had a pending citation. Citation went through. Points went over on his license. No DL = No Cop. Fired.
    -One worked for 3 months, flipped her unit while speeding and late to work. She was still on FTO at the time. Fired.
    -Three worked for a few days, then decided it wasnt for them.

    21/28 are gainfully employed.

    A class of 32 resulted in:

    --One flipped out on his GF and shot her in front of her kids.....then off'd himself about 6 hours later. Both were done with his duty weapon.

    --Two guys were working for a small town of about 10K and were caught doing B&E's out in the County.......

    --One lied on his background and got hemmed up during FTO because an older Officer he worked with remembered hooking him up as a kid. PD dug farther into him and fired him for lying on an app.....

    --One got canned during the academy for getting into a DV.....and spraying his GF with OC Pepper ......making it a felony assult..... He sells Kia's now......

    --One got canned for stealing funds from a school where he was DARE/SRO at.....

    --One got canned for making a porn tape with his fat/ugly wife and posting it online.....with his infant son in the background......

    And finally....

    One got canned for refusing to take a report after some idiot shot some ducks on a pond inside the city limits of where he worked. Game Warden/Chief took issue with that one..... Since the shooter didn't have duck tags and fired shots inside the City Limits.

    He was also later charged with using the PD's Gas Card to fill up his POV. He kept the card that was assigned to his vehicle and would go out at night and use it when there was no traffic (the pumps were remote and used the card to operate). City got the bill and Chief compaired reciepts on hand to what the bill was because it seemed a wee bit higher than normal. They set remote cameras up and caught him in the act...... 30 days in county jail and lost his POST. Needless to say, the PD go rid of the cards and started using the local Stop and Rob to fill up.

    7/32 no longer LEOs.....
