  • Police Academy - 3 Days Off

    This question is to those of you that self sponsored yourself through an academy. Weather it was FAFSA or straight cash.

    What did you do on your three days off that most academies allowed you? I got accepted into Valencia's Academy, in Orlando Florida. It's full time 6AM-4PM M-T --- Fri-Sun is off.

    Study?
    Part Time Job?
    PT?

    Irrespective of the locale of the academy - WHETHER in FL, NE, NY, CA, or any of the other states, it is a good idea to STUDY, STUDY, STUDY if you wish to be successful and graduate.
    Be courteous to all, but intimate with few, and let those few be well tried before you give them your confidence!

        Some are going to four 10 hour days instead of five 8 hour days. Reasons vary, but part of it may be allowing more time for inservice training for existing officers or because of staffing.

        To the OP, check with the academy before you work PT, some don't allow it. You might just be ready to relax, study, or do something besides academy stuff so leave your options open.

          Why do we try so Hard for Little things, and so Little for Hard things?

            Three days off is a luxury that I wish we had. We did the standard M-F 0730-???. We were strongly discouraged from working or taking any part time college classes. Take these six months or however long it is and devote it to your training. That being said, I would take that third day and do NOTHING. Dont study, PT or do anything police related. Your mind and body need a day for R&R. Read a book, play video games, fish, do whatever it is that YOU like to do.

                We go Mon-Thurs. At the academy I am in they do a ton of training for sworn officers on Fri-Sun. I know they have done the drivers instructors course and I think they did a Tactical Shotgun course last weekend.

                And on my three days off I do all three.
