Discussion in 'State Police' started by graveyardsleeper, Aug 8, 2006.
Heard a rumor today of another class starting October 23. Anyone get a letter?
I hope so. Many in my department waiting to get letters. I hope they are all accepted. Good luck to all if this is true.
No funding approved, = no class
Word on the job is no class scheduled or being talked about .
You can thank the Big Dig (or as I call it - Big Waste of Money) for it.
No money. The funding has been diverted to the family of the women killed at Ted Williams "a$$hole". And rightly so.
Does that mean that there's also no money for another exam ?
Yea, your in the same boat as a lot of us -- best advice, try to get on local for now, or state police close by and keep eye out for exam. There probably wont be an exam for quite a while.
I am a local --- Got a 95 on the last SP exam and was on the bubble for the 79th until they found that pile of deferments...I am hoping if they don't fund the 80th this year that they hold off on another exam.... What ever happens good luck to all in either situation.
I was at the SPA yesterday.
Word there is: no $, no class, no exam.
Some of you people might want to exhale now.....
As of Mid July there was no money appropriated for a class in 2007, and it implied they did not expect that situation to change.. but stranger things have happened...
I wouldn't hold out much hope for this year, last word is that it was a no-go......thank the Big Dig.
A friend of mine got their letter the other day. Class starts Oct 23. Supposedly a maintainance class after the screw up with the 79th. Anyone else going?
I'll expect an apology in October
I know this may seem a little off the mark, but does the $0 funds also effect the SSPO academies as well?
No....they're paid for by their home agencies.
What's a "maintenance class?"
A small class put through with the intention of only filling out the vacancies caused by Troopers retiring, and not to boost the size of the department. The Connecticut SP does a couple of small (25-35) classes each year rather than huge 130+ recruit classes. It has been hoped by many in the MSP to do small (70-80) recruit classes annually rather than a slew of huge classes and then no recruit classes for years. Not only would it insure a constant supply of new Troopers, it would simplify many of the logistical nightmares at the SPA.
Well, since I was also in that group and didn't "get a letter" I'll be calling bullshit on this also.
No letter here as well
I know not ONE but TWO people that were on the "standby" list for the 79th
As of today's mail, no letters...
Ya, I was a backfill for the 79th and I am pretty sure that if they do any type of RTT I will be there...and I def. did not get any letter
