    Kilvinsky I think, therefore I'll never be promoted.

    The pay is atrocious, so we'll get that out of the way before the salary police start screaming. It's not a good paycheck on it's own. 'Nuff said. Add it to a pension or take it over some private security job paychecks and it could be pretty sweet. Ok, that's out of the way, no need to beat THAT dead horse.

    I know a few guys who have retired and going on to that department. I believe they started in the low 40s as patrol officers. I think the pay scale advertised may be a bit outdated. If I had to guess that position would probably be somewhere in the 70s, which is still crummy

    This is an unarmed “department” on a campus that has no housing. Most if not all “police work” is handled by local PD this is basically a security department.

    This job will go to a retired RISP Trooper or Providence Command staff. Ccri police do attend the RI Municipal police academy. They have police powers by statute. When I was at RIMPA, I never saw them really do much besides lock doors as we were the last ones to leave Lincoln at night.

    At least you can save the Earth at this dept. There isnt a more intimidating cruiser than the hybrid Toyota Highlander.

    I never put down what cruiser a department drives.

    although I may not fully agree with the choice. I speak from experience.

    Though God knows, sleeping in a Fusion is VERY relaxing. That seat just cradles you...

    NO, THAT'S A LIE. I'm speaking out of my ASS. I never sleep at work! NEVER! To be honest, it's the getting in and out of a fucking Fusion that is the pure hell of those cars. They are NOT built for normal people. If a department hired only dwarfs, then a Fusion might be perfect, but anyone over 5' 2" is screwed and has to develop a technique to getting in and out so as to not destroy their hips. A Highlander? Shit, not bad; not bad at all.

    They are lucky they even have cruisers. CCRI lincoln was a mile long circular roadway. Warwick I think is even smaller.

    Funny how LONG a mile can be when you have to walk to the call. Run? Are you KIDDING me?

    FWIW, Ford has hybrid Interceptor Utilties now. I don't remember if they started making them in 2019 or 2020.

    I'd have to look at an order sheet, but they can be ordered with a regular or turbocharged gasoline non-hybrid engine. I'm pretty sure the conventional gas engine (3.6L) is cheaper than the hybrid powertrain package.

    I haven't ordered any 2020s yet so I'm 100% on that though. They've only been available to order for roughly 3 months now (at least through the 1122 program).

    Kilvinsky I think, therefore I'll never be promoted.

    We had hybrids. I was fine with hybrids. They got me from point A to point B without it costing ME a dime. They were quiet and we didn't have to fill them up so often.

    We now have NON-hybrid Explorers. I like the size over the previous Fusions. You could put a Fusion in the Explorer's trunk! I just find it amusing that when the gas gage reads 3/4 of a tank, a warning light comes on saying you're about to run out of gas! UGH!

    Lol, look at the distance to empty calculation. It's actually calibrated...

    That it is. A lot of idle time tends to kill the gas supply, but I'll be damned if I'm going to drive 40 around the city all night just to improve the millage. Though, it could be fun. I'd just put the lights and siren on and aimlessly drive around yelling out the window, "It's for the Environment!"
