    5 months a go Trump won and the NYPD has to provide around the clock officers for Trump tower. Massive drain on manpower even in a 30000 man dept.

      a good number of years ago one of the rookies I worked with was ordered in on his days off ALL SUMMER ----yes for four months.

      He got caught in a hiring freeze and was low man for the entire summer..................there was so much OT that year that between no one else wanting it & him being forced-------------he was there!

      YEP it can happen

      While being forced to take overtime pay as added days off instead of cash is also a labor law violation and a form of wage theft IT is totally common in this business. Every city, county, state payroll manager would prefer alternatives to paying you money.
      It all depends on how the labor contract is written

      It is perfectly legal to force OT as well as to mandate HOW that OT is "paid out" as long as they are undera labor contract that allows it

        Its cheaper to keep her. That's what the old timers say.
        I'm coming up on 3 years left on the job. A divorce now would devastate any hope I had of retiring on time and comfortably. It's the difference between eating steaks and eating ramen every meal....

          Years ago, our jailers were part of our deputy union. When the new jail was built (and the jailers went from 12 total to 55 total), they split off to form their own local. As they were building their first contract, some of the jailers wanted to eliminate the mandatory rest periods from the contract. Mostly because the many young jailers wanted to work as much OT as possible plus I think the county offered them something in exchange. I strongly advised them against it but in the end, they ratified without the rest period language.

          Fast forward fifteen years, and now they're understaffed and being forced constantly to cover all extra vacation time that the now many senior jailers have accumulated. The new staff gets ordered to OT on pretty all their days off. That leads to a lot of new staff becoming former staff and senior staff having to eat a lot of forced OT.

            To confused (the OP)-

            From my early years, I can remember working a lot of OT with three little babies and a wife in college. She would be concerned at times as well, and if there were "forums" back in the mid 90's to ask this, and she had read some of the responses, she would probably be physically sick with the idea that I was cheating, so take a deep breath and take in the big picture.

            My best determining question would be: Does he act like he wants to be with you (although tired) when he is home?

            Also, my first thought was Trump Tower and the drain on NYPD manpower, not cheating as others have alluded to.
            However, with a little fact-checking, and woman's intuition, you will know if it is the latter.

            These early years can be tough on a family, and LE can become an obsession to a lot of rookies- wanting to be involved in everything LE related.

            I hope for the best for you and your family. Life can be hard enough- you need that rock that is faith and a strong family.

              NYPD can not force you to take overtime in time, all ordered OT is what you choose it to be. Working 7 days a week for 5 moths straight? you're either exaggerating or as others have stated, might be other issues.
              And no, it's not that hard to get time off in the NYPD regardless of seniority, or lack thereof, as long you have reasonable expectations.
