    You're kidding right? I leave for the academy in less than a month and how many hours I'm going to get paid for is the last thing I'm thinking, worried or even care about. If I were a betting man, I'd say you signed something along the lines of an "at will employee agreement" which means exactly that. You are an at will employee and they can do pretty much whatever they want. Don't like it? Leave.

        I imagine a cadet receives a salary and not an hourly wage.

          Exactly. Generally during the academy/training phase you are a salaried employee. OP, you cannot track your time on this job as you would a civilian job. There is many times you will work more than you are paid for. There is just as many, if not more, times you will be paid when you have not worked. It's just how it is. If you get to be a trainee you will be so buried in paper you will be glad to work for free in order to catch up. You have got to change your thinking or you will not make it.

              Are you only allowed to count classroom training hours?

              Are you allowed to count morning or afternoon required PT as time?

              Are you regulated to staying on the employers premise; with restrictions on visitors, phones, tv, Internet, reading material, and food?

              There is no contact with the outside world from sunday night to friday evening for 29 weeks. You may read your field manuals as well as Penal and V&T manuals. No phones or tv or any outside food

                  Weren't paid for OT. Got paid our base salary. Morning PT was OT. It went to comp time. Comp time follows you after graduation then you have a chance to get it paid out to you twice a year.
