  • The other reason there aren't more marshal departments here in Texas is that cities like to have direct control over their police. They appoint a chief who leads the department at their mercy. A department with an elected marshal appoints his deputies and is only beholden to the public. The caveat...

    replied to DFW Area Police Academies
    This isn't what you are asking, but I will put it out there. I used to fly to DFW/Love Field regularly, and when I did, I would speak to the DFW airport police officers. If you don't know, there are many LE departments in metro areas - not just the major city departments like Dallas and Fort Worth....

  • Departments range broadly in their hiring practices. Some departments want you to be squeaky clean on your application and personal history statement while others have a lower bar. Some departments may have the thinking like insurance agencies where they raise your rates after an accident even though...

  • Not that there's anything wrong with that...

    OP, it sounds like it was just the polygrapher's tactic he had to use. If he did actually wink at you, it is possible the session was being recorded, and he had to make it sound good for his supervisor.

    I had applied to a department...

    replied to Whatcha carrying?
    I’ve carried many pistols on and off duty, and the P365 XL has been my favorite. There are a few things I like about it over my old carry - a G43. To me, it is a miniaturized sub-compact where I always feel confident while going out and about. I said that before about my G43, but the SIG gives...

    replied to Austin PD
    One of the major reasons I never wanted to work there is all of the people of 'power' there. It just wouldn't be worth it to me to regularly deal with those people of 'power' nor be beholden to such a liberal city....

    replied to Lateral from NYPD to TX
    There are several academies where you can self sponsor yourself to get your peace officer certification. It is harder, but some people can get sponsored by a department.

    The department I retired from had its own academy, but the new location I live now, the departments only accept already...

    Think a little more before piecing your thoughts into coherent sentences here.

    I'm going to try to answer what I see. If you report something to officers believing you have some type of 'evidence' of what you believe to be a crime, but the officers, in their investigation find there...

    As said, 10 codes are not universal. FYI, the following are just some of the 10 codes we used in the department I retired from:

    10-1 = your radio transmission is intelligible/your radio transmission isn't coming in clear
    10-2 = your radio transmission is coming in clear/your radio...

    I have a slight idea that you may be one of those frequent callers to 911 to report things you believe need to be reported. If you are one of those frequent callers, I can see how officers might turn negative on you. There was this one security guard at a truck stop in my patrol area who would call...

    replied to Whatcha drinking?
    HEB decaffeinated green tea on ice with a lemon slice squeezed in. That's pretty much all I drink now. I love beer, but I just don't like the alcohol. If they ever made a good non-alcoholic stout, I will probably drink as much as I can and bathe in what I can't.

  • That 10 mph over is only or responding, but there is no max speed limit for pursuits. Even so, our pursuit parameters were tightened so much that they were almost not worth it. I've been retired 5 years now, and I wouldn't doubt pursuit/emergency response policy has even become more restrictive. ...

  • Our traffic unit, which mostly gets around on motor units, are prohibited from pursuing on their motor units per our policy. Our detectives are also prohibited from pursuing because they don't operate marked police units per policy. Our detectives got a bunch of Dodge Avengers, and they only outfitted...

  • Some marshal departments here in Texas are police departments, but the difference is the marshal is an elected head of his agency. In these agencies, the elected marshal appoints his deputy marshals. Their departments are similar to sheriff and constable departments except they are at the municipal...

  • This isn't here nor there, but, here in Texas, the registration requirement is waved...however, our tags for the last few years have been a combination of registration and motor vehicle inspection. There was a campaign during the switch from a motor vehicle registration sticker and the separate inspection...

    replied to Ammo prices
    The last place I was able to find 9mm and 5.56 in-store AND for reasonable prices was at GT Distributors in Austin, TX. The only problem was that you are limited to two boxes of each.

  • Just like my example. Instead of asking me why I had 3 employers in a few months, they cut me without even asking. When I was able to explain that I was fresh out of the military and working odd jobs to put me through the academy, they let me back in.

    I have no idea what the 'negatives'...

  • Appeal to dispute or clarify the 'negative(s)' found - to answer your question.

    Back in '88, I had applied to a department where I made it pretty far in the process. I finally was told it was the end of the line for me due to having too many employers in a short amount of time. I didn't...
