    I've got 2 kids and a mortgage, but given the opportunity I'd easily take the pay cut. Take out a loan if you have too. I can't imagine turning down the msp for only 75k. Most people just use the $ issue as an excuse

    Sorry kids.

    Backlash as Gov. Baker cuts $98M from state budget

    Gov. Charlie Baker today slashed $98 million in spending to help balance the state's porous budget, his office said, slicing from 140 state agencies in a move that is immediately drawing rebukes from legislative leaders.

    The cuts, which Baker can do without legislative approval, actually add up to more than $118 million, before revenues offset them, according to the administration, and are intended to fill a $98 million budget shortfall

    "while State Police had $6.4 million in cuts."

    Does that essentially kill the 83RTT. MSPField?

    Funding for the 83rd was not in this year's budget. The class was contingent upon funding in next fiscal year's (FY18) budget. The 6.4 million was cut from the MSP operating budget for this current fiscal year. Maybe it takes a bite out of the Standards and Training dollars currently being used to vet candidates, but this doesn't kill the 83rd for FY18 (yet anyway)...

    Based on the upcoming CS test and push from all agencies for that, it seems as though it still might take some time for a class to officially start

    The test is always held every 2 years.

    Not for State Police. They skipped the last one.

    Excuse the slow reply. MA12Local is right, the 83rd isn't in this fiscal year budget so the class is still being eyeballed for summer 17. The vetting is still ongoing. The budget cuts hit us in other areas.

    The Governor filed House 1. 83rd funded for 130. Of course it still must pass several hurdles, stay tuned.

    What crossfit gym are you going to that costs $200 for 6 classes? Every one I've been to has been $140/month +/- for unlimited class sessions

    Crossfit is so stupid and a waste of money. Just do push-ups, sit-ups and run like crazy.

    At what stage do the actual background investigations begin now that it seems to be a go? I'm pretty high on the list.

    Also, I'm told that prior to start of the academy they will give you a list of items/supplies you will need. Very important question here - do they dictate the type of underwear you have to use? I'm a huge fan of my boxer briefs and if I have to get used to running in tighty whities, I want to get a head start on it

    Looks like you just barely missed the cut. Better luck next time.

    Update to my own question: Background investigators are just starting to be assigned to files this week, phone calls for medical appointments/meetings with investigators going out soon. Good luck all.

    For some reason I will answer your weird question. Yes you are instructed on what underwear you will wear. However running (at least during PT) you wear compression shorts under your PT gear (shorts or sweatpants).

    I think it's awesome that he's already worried about his packing list...

    Few things... Only some people get a packing list, so hopefully you're one of the lucky ones. Second, sometimes, the underwear is worn on your head, so try a few runs out like that to get used to it. Lastly, DEFINITELY post your status updates here to keep us posted. Good luck!

    I wouldnt worry about the gear list so.much. If you can't find the exact items on the list just try and get a close substitute it will be fine. Now listen closely, here's the catch to make it kosher, When your d.i. who will obviously see you had a little trouble with their list and will be quite concerned about you and comes to gently express their concern for you, all you have to do is just politely tell them your all set bc you got all your instructions in advance from masscops. believe me You'll be gtg.:)

    Is anyone able to shed any light on what the background investigation meeting/interview looks like? I'm just trying to get a feel for what to expect.
