    replied to Best rechargeable flashlight
    Like a few of the others, I got away from rechargeables long ago. The batters give out when you lest expect it and when they do, it seems like the spare you keep in reserve has lost its charge.

    Costco sells four, aircraft metal LED flashlights for $19 that give out a ton of light. I...

  • Gibbo,

    If you can ever get to Texas and a real BBQ, you will typically walk into a place with wooden picnic tables, benches and sawdust on the floor, and a small counter in the front. If you tell the clerk in the front you are here for BBQ, they will point you to the back wall, where there...

  • I would suggest differently. One of the conditions of LEOSA is that that you hold valid credentials from the agency you retired from. If those credentials clearly indicate they are expired on the front, you are not in compliance. I realize we are nit picking here, but when you live in a state like...

  • PC 25905 mandates issuance of a retired ID card and discusses CCW endorsements if authorized.

    PC 25915 states that every five years, a retired officer must petition their agency for renewal of their CCW privilege. While the law does not specifically mandate that an expiration date be placed...

  • Dr. Hogly Wogly's Tyler Texas BBQ. Unfortunately, it's in the far, north end of Los Angeles, about 56 miles from Disney.

    There is no decor to speak of - it's just an old building. But it' was always packed when I ate there because the food was good.

    I started eating there 41...

  • By any chance are you in California? If you retired in 1981 or after, your retired California ID with a CCW endorsement is only supposed to be good for five years, after which you have to get a new one from your agency. All 1981 or after Retired CCW IDs are supposed to have a 5 year expiration date...

  • We had two brothers who were poster boys for sexual harassment lawsuits. One was a Sergeant and the other was a Deputy Chief. We lost count as to the number of sustained sexual harassment claims made against them and for some reason they just seemed to be bullet proof and were never disciplined. ...

    replied to Lateral and PHS question
    If you look at 1198.5 of the Labor Code, they are not required to give it to you because it was a record acquired prior to your employment. However, if you ask nicely and explain that you don't want to see your background package and just need a copy of your PHS, you can probably sweet talk some clerical...

    replied to Criminal Justice Certficate
    Unless it is a minimum requirement of the job, it's meaningless. The best you can hope for is in obtaining the certificate is you might learn enough to correctly answer a few more test questions on the civil service exam and get a slightly higher score. Other than that, it's like putting lipstick...

    replied to Test Scores
    In true civil service testing is hard to do that.

    Your written exam is scored in the number of correct answers you give to test questions. Its usually scored by a machine. If you program the machine to score 2+2 = anything but 4, it will change everyone's score.

    Orals are...

  • I wouldn't give up just yet as there are cops out there with prosthetic legs. (My agency has one of them.) It may be an uphill battle, but it is worth looking into.

    Those cops that I know of with prosthetic legs were already employed as officers, had on the job accidents that cost them...

    replied to Vacation to Seattle.
    I'm a retired California cop, so I can only speak from my travels.

    I had a retired Seattle Detective show me around his city. We saw Pike Place Market and the Space Needle, but missed the underground city tour because it was closed at the time. Beyond that he ran out of places to show me...

    Just uniqueness. There are packed Canadian cities and residences built right to to Point Roberts, then you cross the border and it's four square miles of rural area at the beach. 30 years ago Canada was dry on Sundays, but Point Roberts had two bars. Canadians used to pour in there to get drunk...

    replied to Vacation to Seattle.
    If you want to visit one of America's oddities after you slip across the border into Canada, drive over to Point Roberts Canada. Once you enter Canada on I-5 you have to drive about 30 miles west through Canada to get there. It is a little part of the Canadian continent that juts below the international...

  • Leaving during week 9 of a 26 week academy because the department was "going through changes" and "not a place for you to stick around" demonstrates an inability to handle conflict and adversity. As others have previously mentioned, a department has a lot invested in you at that...

  • Long Term Care usually covers convalescent homes and (depending on the coverage) certain home health care. (Things most often needed by the elderly.) The price usually depends on your age when you sign up for it and the level of coverage. If you do so when you are young, the premiums are relatively...

  • With just four vacancies, it is unlikely you scored high enough on the list to be processed for the September academy if you have heard nothing by now.

    Here's a couple clues. Did you have an initial interview with your BI to go over your package and documents after you turned them in?...

  • Do you know what position you are on the list? Do you know how many they intend to hire for the next academy? Knowing that will give you an idea as to whether you are reachable for a September academy.

    Bear in mind that if you were signed off today on the background, you would still have...
