    BTW, I re-read my sentence there and it didn't make much sense. What I was trying to say is USMC boot is more than likely going to be harder physically. I had plenty of USMC buddies and they all had hurting legs every night like I did though. They do get you in some awsome shape at OCSA and they want you very thin there also which is good due to the very long runs all over the county.

    Hey, Retired you are correct. I have been reading the Grand Jury reports. The OCSD does not pay into their retirement or medical. They are also not in PERS. Too many people collecting and not enough money going in. I work for another agency in Orange County. We are in PERS and have 3% at 50. We just recently began paying part of the contribution. I have no problem doing so because the retirement is still better than what the rest of working America is getting. And to get off the subject a little, who wants to spend 7 years in the jail. I did not become a cop to work the jail for 1/4 of my career.
    I hope you are able to maintain your 3 at 50, because more and more agencies throughout California are starting to feel the liability. As you so aptly said, not enough coming in, too much going out.

    I would agree with this whole-heartedly. That's why I chose an academy that was a little more laid-back instead of in-your-face like Alameda County SA. It's good for people who've never had that experience to help them lose the attitudes and develop some discipline, but if you've been there, done that and got the t-shirt, it would be kind of aggravating.

    Of course, if I had to do go through a boot-camp type academy, I'd do it.
