    I don't miss those first few the room inspections where it looked like a tornado came in and threw your rack and uniforms across the floor. It takes all types of stress to test people before putting them on the streets.
    Where'd you learn that, Cheech? Drug school?

      No running in my academy, but this was long before you were born......

      Most if not all of us were military Vets and treated like adults.

        Actually State PT standards came into being shortly after I finished my academy. (and I personally knew the person who's academy experience was the reason the state made those standards )

        We ran and did some push ups/situps/ etc but it was all voluntary (surprisingly EVERYONE participated)
        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

          Interesting. Voluntary PT? I will admit that I am glad this changed. PT should not be voluntary, but you should still be treated like an adult (IMO)

All the commands I give seem to be wrong and yeah it's just been a nightmare. The TOs have also told me that If I dont get the class together soon that he will write me up on poor leadership and that a department will never hire me since I am Self- sponsored. Just wondering if you guys could give me some advice and is any of that true about never getting hired?

              If you aren't getting smashed, battered, torn apart and pitted against one another, you aren't in the police academy. Stop doing your own damn thing, recruit! You nasty thing!

                The sheep generally do not like the sheepdog. He looks a lot like the wolf. He has fangs and the capacity for violence. The difference, though, is that the sheepdog must not, cannot and will not ever harm the sheep. Any sheepdog who intentionally harms the lowliest little lamb will be punished and removed.

                I Am the Sheepdog.

                      Oh, I know. Not comparing the two, and not trying to step on any toes.

                      Time to go *poof* from this thread.

                          What are you commanding? I was chosen to lead my cycle. The instructors yelled "who has military service " being prior service I did not say ****. The next thing I heard was my name. I was like **** as I knew what was next. I hired 4 squad leaders and delegated everything. I just marched the platoon and reported injuries,illness and anything out of the ordinary to the instructors. Start delegating authority.

                            Awwwww, did Buttercup get her feelings hurt?

                            ...Seriously, they're playing head games. That frustration you feel is you slowly, ever so slowly, being forged into law enforcement material. And btw, if you think the academy is "tough," then quit now. Being hired, going through FTO, and staying in LE for an entire career without dying, quitting, or being fired is "tough."

                            Best of luck, and don't worry about the head games. Take responsibility for your and your squad's messes and work hard. Remember that when your team succeeds, it is to their credit, but when they fail, it is a failure of your leadership.

                              TO's tell every class that they are the worst class. and ur probably going to be class leader till they see u have confidence and command presence then move on to the next unconfident person. its all part of the game
