    replied to Do I have a chance? ( Long post )
    No one was being rude to you. If you take honest responses that hard you absolutely don't have the ability to handle what you'll receive on the streets. Being the police is not an easy job, we're going to be honest with you and not sugar coat it.

    Seems like you need to stay with your current...

    replied to Day 1 FTO
    Since you've worked as a CSO for the department for a couple years already I'm sure you'll be fine. You already know the officers, the town, the policies, etc...

    Make sure you and your fellow offers stay safe and everyone goes home at the end of the shift the same way they came in....

    replied to Chicagoland part time academy
    Most small PD's will send someone through the part-time academy. The way Illinois works is the PD has to pay for the academy up front but as long as you pass they're reimbursed.

    Doesn't hurt to send in resumes or ask for an application to any place you'd be willing to work for. Just because...

    replied to Bike Maintenance
    I work for a very small agency. I'll do the simple repairs that we learned how to do in the IPMBA course, anything more extensive I take it to a local bike shop that charges us for parts and very little for labor.

    If we were larger I would prefer to keep it in house personally.

    replied to Axon/TASER 7....anybody using it?
    I'll add that the instructor stated that Axon isn't looking to sell them outright like they've done in the past. Apparently they want to lease them out, he stated the cost will be about $60 per unit, per month.

    I can't speak for anyone else but I much prefer to buy them outright and to...

    replied to waiting on the call
    There's absolutely no normal when it comes to being hired on by a law enforcement agency. In an ideal world everything would flow smoothly and you'd have your final offer well in advance of the academy. I have seen them force a medical the day before the academy starts to get someone in.

    replied to Axon/TASER 7....anybody using it?
    We're using the X2 but I just went through the instructor's course last month. 75% of the course was a sales pitch for the TASER 7.

    I'll say from using it during the training it's clearly a better weapon than the X2 or X26P but it's up to your department if it's worth the massive finical...

  • I took the survey but several questions I left unanswered. They didn't allow an answer for someone who wasn't thinking about suicide which seems to jade the responses.

    replied to Final Interview with Chief
    As a chief myself I use these interviews to get to know the candidate on a more personal level. I have their hiring packet and know all about their work history, school history, etc... I don't need that reiterated to me. I want to know who you are as a person, I'll be evaluating if you'll be a good...

    replied to NIght sights for Personal Weapons?
    I install Truglo TFO on all of my handguns. They are both night sights and fiber optic sights built into one. No matter how much or little light there is they shine bright and are super easy to pick up.

    replied to Forum Access
    I have adblock on phone, tablet, and my laptop so luckily I don't have to see the ads.

    If you have a question for the action administrators here good luck, I don't think they even know the site still exists.
