  • Nypd vs mtapd ?

    For those familiar with nyc. My brother is having a tough decision to make. He will be promoted to rookie sgt within 3 months in the nypd. He has 6 years with the nypd already. However, he has just been notified by the mtapd to start the process for their agency. Would it be worth for him to stay in the nypd or should he switch over to mtapd. From what i know, he will not need to the academy again. However, he will start off with rookie pay all over again in mtapd. And he will be going from tier 3 to tier 6. From what i understand his time with nypd will count on the bavk end. Any thoughts on this?

    I would post this question in the NY forum

    Since some people need to be told by notes in crayon .......Don't PM me with without prior permission. If you can't discuss the situation in the open forum ----it must not be that important

    My new word for the day is FOCUS, when someone irritates you tell them to FOCUS

      Up to five years of his city time will count on the front end. Anything above five goes on the back.

      It's a tough question to answer - only he can make the decision.

      There is so much BS in the NYPD that I only hear about. We (MTAPD) hire a lot of city rollovers and they're all very happy after they come over. Most time that I heard a rollover having was 7 years and he was an academy instructor too.

      And yes, he's staring at the bottom of the pay scale but there is usually more OT available than with NYPD and we don't have caps.

        You know if they are hiring civilians for the 2019 Announcement? I'm interested on it but I'm not a LEO.

      You mean the exam that will be given soon? Anyone can apply to take the exam, if that's what you mean.

        MTA PD is way better quality of life. Not to mention you'll be out of the city. Not heavy lifting
