  • 2 of my classmates in the Academy were retired Army. One was 45 and one was 48. They were both in better shape than most of the others.

    Ha! I remember how PO'd I'd get when I had good felony cases but the slug that wrote 30 winnipegs had the same score or better.

    I retired from APD last month so I'm done. I'm glad you're happy where you are. I actually live in Dekalb County. APD is very dangerously short staffed and it's getting worse every month. I taught a class at the Academy that had 25 people in it. I thought I was teaching 1 class. It turned out...

    In DeKalb, you’re going to get the training, experience, and opportunities one is looking for. You’ll have 4 days in and 3 days off, rotate every 3 mos, take home cars,higher pay, although in the southeast we get paid pennies compared to many other states. Implemented raises for MPOs, none of these...

    Eturnity what Jeep wrote is very true. Pressuring people to make arrests eventually leads to an illegal arrest and the officer will go to Federal Prison for violation of Oath etc. Not the ones that are doing the pressuring to 'up the stats.'

    Also, to add to what JeeperBuddy said, one of...

  • You won't know if you don't apply. Was it a DUI arrest or DUI + accident? Be willing to move. As was mentioned above, the agencies that would hire you this soon after a DUI are desperate for bodies. You can work at one of these, let time between the offense and reapply to another dept. I wouldn't...

    I don't know anything about Dekalb PD but the shape that APD is in now would put it far lower than 2nd to any dept. I'm sad to say as I devoted a large part of my life to the dept....

    If you want your car broken into, go to Atlantic Station. The mgt hates police and detectives have to get a subpoena just to see worthless video footage of the parking deck. I suggest apply elsewhere. APD's retirement is garbage. More and more City Hall people are getting indicted by the Feds.

  • I agree w/ Iowa. I have had more than one 'corporate security' idiot RUIN a good case due to questionable practices. After the wannabe Joe Friday's have gotten a 'confession' and the 'suspect' gets to me, I read them Miranda, they start to realize that they do have certain rights. Here, a 16yr old...

    I can't offer much more than the guys have. One thing especially stood out regarding your post. The 'Black Plague' feeling. Who the h%$l has the right to judge you and your past?! I worked in Vice (I'm female if that is relevant) and some of the stories that the women told me were so horrific. No...

    I think this is a great idea. ab04. I'm tired of trying to filter through 277+ pages. I retired last week and taught occasionally at the Academy. I'll gladly answer any questions I can.

    I believe they're putting together another lateral academy. I spoke to a Lt. last week. May depend on if you are Ga. POST certified or another state. They really need officers w/ the Super Bowl coming up....
