    Might want to get a Brazilian just in case they are doing inspections. Expect THOROUGH inspections during the academy.

      One guy showed up to our corrections academy orientation with a goatee. That was the day they had us bring our class A shirt for ID pictures. He got a lot of... individual attention on day one of the academy.

        During my orientation they took pictures of us and took hair for drug testing. I had just gotten a short cut and manscaped a week prior so body hair was sparse.

          We could have gone all week without that knowledge............................
          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

              Well orientation has came and passed, I wasn't the only guy in a suit but I was indeed one of the few. Got my course list and all the other "first day" things sorted out. First day is Aug 25, currently ordering uniforms and books and then starting up. Very excited about this but thanks for the suit advice, fellas... Definitely stood out in a good way

                First day of Orientation and there's already guys in "hairbag" mode? Good grief....

                  That means there will be some quick washouts.

                    Good luck. The best way to get through the whole thing is to be a conformist and to quietly excel.

                      I'm not sure if that was negatively addressed towards me but I am just trying to take this whole thing in stride. I'm excited and I want to do my best, of course and I do have passion for this, but I'm not singling out anyone or trying compare to them or anything like that.

                      Thanks a lot for the advice, guys and love reading the other stories on the site as well! Appreciate it!

                        No, I don't think so.

                              I didn't think so, but wasn't sure about the terminology/connotation, definitely don't want to wash out early though... or at all haha
