No, I am not saying that at all. My remarks were more intended for those who are now struggling in the MSP academy, that's all. If they made it that far, they probably could (if they haven't already) obtain a position within a local department. There are how many thousands of local officers in MA? I don't know, but there are 2,600 Troopers, and right now they are supposed to be focusing on what they want, which I assume is to be a Trooper. Please do not turn this thread into the old us vs. them arguement, That is not what I intended, and I apologize if you were offended. Lets get on with it.What's wrong with being a local? Are you saying troopers are that much tougher than locals.
Exactly, so you know what I meant.=D>I had people quit in my academy also and thought "Why the hell did you bother going through all the B.S. of getting on the job just to quit after a week
Locals, State, Federal, Campus.tomcats said:I think we're on the same page brother. My honest opinion is there should never be an "us vs. them" attitude. I'm happy to work with anyone who is squared away. I couldn't care less what badge they're wearing. State trooper, local or whatever else we can think of. My opinion is we're all on the same team and the less "us vs them" crap the better off we all are.

What the hell does that have to do with being a good Trooper?
