and when he gives the spelling test, it's scissors though it sounds like scissoooorrrss :lol:

Just kidding Lenny, and to those of you fortunate enough to attend Plymouth yes they do have a few birdies on this site so stay in line with your posts.

Communication is key, I suggest that you find the web/computer geek in class and get a small message board setup, email list and phone contact list asap. Might be a good idea to pass out a phone list sign-up after the orientation.

:arrow: My people tell me they have only 6 recruits signed up for the next class-hence the "float" status. NAS South Weymouth Academy supposedly only has 14 recruits.....Hey Cape-remember the run @ the forest to the tune of "Movin' on up" ????? :lol:

I heard that the PPD recruit will be going to an academy more west in the state due to the lack of people in the Ply/Wey academy. It's apparently like 2 hrs away?? For his sake i hope I heard wrong, and anyone know what other academy may start soon thats more "west"?

Jimbo,

I am self sponsoring myself through the next Plymouth Academy, completed everything (medical, PAT, items purchased), now just waiting to find out when start date is. I have not been appointed to any town yet, although I am a resident in Plymouth and on the civil service list. I am bummed out though given the situation in the town with the budget, but all I can do is wait and put myself through. Maybe with a little luck something will happen!

Shawn

Save your receipts, and get some of that money back next year. Have you checked with other academies (MBTA, Weymouth). If you can self sponsor, the drive shouldn't be that much further for you.

Good luck

Thanks Jimbo I appreciate it. If anyone hears any new info on when the full time academy is going to start, please share. I know they have the website but sometimes people find out before stuff is posted there.

SRR, thanks for the info with getting some money back, I did save all my receipts so I will look into it. Can I use the receipt from the gun I purchased for use at the academy to get money back? I spent $800 on it, so any little bit back helps.

Don't forget the ammo. I purchased a Glock 27 and wrote it off, as well as my gun safe I purchased when I first became a cop. Don't forget the receipts for your cans of Kiwi and a cloth diaper, etc....

Take the box your new go-fasters came in and label it "Police Receipts" Throw EVERY receipt you get from a job related expense in there. (Including the gas receipts and bill for the Crown Vic I assume you'll have to rent for EVOC) It's better if your accountant tells you no as opposed to trying to remember what you purchased. If it's a job-related expense, it's usually a write off.
