  • I'm going to bet its a staffing and budget issue. Do the locals have the extra personnel available to provide individual protection to the coaches? Is there sufficient time to familiarize them with the existing security program for the coaches? Do they know the coach's routines and security needs,...

    commented on 's reply to NYS Park Police to merge with NYSP
    Unless they are taken as equals, they will always be regarded as "second class" personnel and looked down upon. A deep schism will develop within the agency and there will be a serious morale problem.

    replied to NYS Park Police to merge with NYSP
    Sounds like the California State Police - California Highway Patrol merger 24 years ago. Lots of CHiPies ran around moaning, "If I wanted to be a real police officer I would have joined a real police department," while a lot of CSP guys moaned, "If I wanted to be a traffic cop I would...

    Are you the only one in Rank 3 or are you one of many in Band 3?

    Once upon a time, the state conducted honest testing. The written was weighted 60% and the oral was weighted 40%. If 245 people passed both, there were 245 people on the list in 245 different positions based on their combined...

    replied to San Jose PD backgrounds
    I don't think anyone here is from San Jose PD, so I doubt we can answer your question in that context.

    Let's try this from another direction. What is it that you've done that you are worried about? Remember, we have no idea who supporttheblue is, so there is a reasonable degree of anonymity....

    replied to Pawned His Gun
    It had to do with something else i left out.

    Back in the day, a lot of new hires lived near and wanted to be appointed to the State Capital, but many were assigned to a large metro area 90 miles away. There was some turnover back then and it usually took about six to nine months to get...

    replied to Pawned His Gun
    Early in my career back in the 1970s, one of the other rookies kept borrowing service revolvers from other officers for use on duty. Turned out while off duty he picked up a girl and had sex with her. Unbeknownst to him at the time, she also robbed him. He then went out and pawned his department...

  • Its a matter of knowing who got hired and keeping track in your head. I'll try to explain this to you again -

    Let's assume you are #10 on the list. You have personal knowledge that they have hired #1, 2 & 3 and #4 failed the background. This means you are four steps closer to being...

  • You don't know as it is an internal process.

    Hiring is usually done in list order. Let's assume you are #10 on the list, they hire #1, 2 & 3 and #4 failed the background. You are still #10 on the list, but you have "moved up" in that you are now 4 steps closer to being...

  • 35 years ago I worked for an agency that did not issue jump suits and had no written standards for them. There was a particular assignment that had a tremendous potential to get your uniform very dirty on a daily basis, so the 18 officers assigned to it took it upon themselves to go out and buy their...

  • Really cool looking, but if you fall over while wearing it, will you wind up like a June Bug on its back and not be able to get up?

    replied to CA police Chief leaves gun in bathroom
    Come on guys! You've been banging this around for almost five months now. Time to let it go.

    Take a deep breath, count to 10 and ask yourselves, what would be the normal administrative punishment for an officer who misplaces their gun in the john, discovers their error minutes later,...

    Medical exams are administered to determine if an applicant is physical capable of performing the duties of the job they are seeking. The results of blood and urine tests help determine whether the applicant is suffering from an illness that might render them incapable of performing those duties. ...

    replied to Background info
    Your evasive response does not address the questions I posed, so I'll try it another way.

    You applied with an agency and were told you failed the psych. Nonetheless, some time later the agency in question did something suggesting they may still have an interest in you. For some unexplained...

    replied to Background info
    [/LIST]Well, being 'hurt and upset', what could you do with this information? Do you think you should call whatever state agency regulates professional standards for police and report this department for possibly reconsidering someone who failed the psych? Or, should you speak at the next city council...

  • In my state we don't hire convicted felons either, but based solely on what you describe, you weren't convicted either. Even if you were convicted (again in my state) juvenile convictions are not considered to be criminal and don't count unless you are tried and convicted as an adult.

  • In my state, DMV Investigators are full peace officers who actively initiate their own major enforcement efforts (raids on auto theft & forgery rings) and participate in related enforcement sweeps with other agencies. I'd want them wearing POLICE on their jackets and vests. Of course, other state...
