  • "The Academy" Vest Question

    I noticed how when they wear their class Bs with gun belt, they never wear their vests. In the last episode they were punished by having to run and do the foot chase course with riot helmets, when vests seem like they would be worse. Do any of you know why they never have their vests on? It seems like a good idea as they are the hardest thing to get used to. And I know I'd rather wear a helmet than vest while running.

    Thanks

                When I heard "Hulu" for the first time, it reminded me of a character on Star Trek.


                I've never used that site before, but have added it to my "favorites" list and will definitely check it out in the coming days & weeks.

                Thanks for the link!!

                  we give rookies the old decommissioned vests to wear in the academy. they are expired per manufac's label. while in the academy they are fitted for their own vest. this gets them used to wearing a vest at all times and doesn't ruin a new one w/ all the stuff they do in the academy.

                      I think my local dept requires new recruits to purchase thier own vest, though they are given an allowance for it. (I gather from reading, but have no direct experience in the matter). Im sorry to say though, but some of the recruits on that show disturb me, such as the lady who cant get commands right after week 11, and speaks very hard to understand broken English.

                        Everyone wears a vest in Maine's academy... even if they're older ones like Narco was talking about.

                        I just watched the first episode on Hulu... lol... a lot looked and sounded familiar....
