  • What is "The Grinder"? (possibly just SoCal related)

    What is "The Grinder" as it applies to police academy?

    I have seen the term used in discussions of OCSD and GWC, so this may just be a Southern California academy thing.

    Thanks!

    The Grinder is the drill pad, or at least that is what I believe it refers to. At MCRD San Diego every Sunday we would move all the racks to one side of the squad bay and set up "The Grinder" and do drill inside.

      I don't know about now (I'm retired) but 20 years ago the Grinder in Long Beach was a popular Code 7 spot.

        For LASD folks it was where you did all your PT, inspections and daily formations.....When the staff yelled out to " Fall out on the Grinder" you knew hard times were coming soon....

          The Grinder can be where you go for punishment. Physically you are pushed to the limits for a bit of behavior modification. Can be one-on-one or involve the entire class.

                I'm not entirely clear, but I understand it to be some kind of gay social media sex club thing..

                  We have grinders in Michigan - they're delicious baked subs.

                  Why is it acceptable for you to be an idiot, but not acceptable for me to point it out?

                    I've been through two academies. In both, the "Grinder" was a small punishment course during inspection. A lap around the track in a certain time in one and a lap around the track with pull-ups, dips, leg lifts, and push ups in the other.
