  • Non-NYPD Recruit Attending NYPD Academy

    Hello,
    I was wondering if anyone here has attended the NYPD academy but was not an NYPD recruit. For example, the MTA PD and Amtrak PD send their recruits to the NYPD academy (Amtrak only if they live in NY). What was the experience like? Do you wear the same greys like the NYPD recruits? Do they participate in all of the activities the NYPD recruits do, ie: PT, care stop, field training, etc etc? Were you treated different by the instructors or NYPD recruits? Thanks in advance for any information.
    Decided against NYPD
    Wasted my time with that

    Amtrak PD Exam 8/07 Passed
    Interview 2/19/09 Passed
    Written Psych 2/19/09 Passed
    BI "Blue Book" Turned in 2/23
    Oral Psych 3/11/09 Passed
    BI Meeting 10/04/09- BI Complete
    Medical ?
    Academy ?

    NYPD academy is for NYPD only. The New York State Police has a training academy that trains officers for certification in the state of New York. NYPD does their own academy for logistics and to shape their recruits to fit into the unique needs the NYPD needs of its officers.

    How's that Amtrak Police going? I'm looking into railroad police myself, though with the freight railroads.

        Quite a few agencies send officers to the NYPD academy. Amtrak in the past has sent officers to the NYPD academy, if they live in NY state. If they do not live in NY state, they attend FLETC and then go back for a few weeks of NY state training.
        I don't answer recruitment messages....

          Yea your wrong on this one. NYPD takes officers from several other agencies including the MTA, Amtrak, DEP, and they used to do PAPD sometimes years ago. My uncle went through NYPD for PAPD like 25 years ago.
