Does anyone have any updated information about the next academy?
I think that has been put on hold at least for this year, I heard they were mulling over background checks. But there is hesitation to bring on an academy class when the budget is still up in the air, as well as a possible resurgence if COVID 19 this fall. The legislature has temporarily funded agencies until October, but if relief funding doesn’t come from Washington there could be all kinds of large mid years cuts.
It does not sound like a good situation for the trial court. I guess it’s just going to be a long waiting game.
They have switched to virtual hearings, but still a huge backlog of cases once this settles and courts open up fully you will need officers to handle the backload of cases.
If a 5 for 5 comes out, the trial court will be screwed, they will lose so many officers. Understanding that there are other academies going on (BPD, MBTA ect) if the trial court was smart they would do a small one with maybe just ACOs. You can afford to pull them out of the courts now given the situation and they can come back as white shirts when everything starts to pick up again. They won’t do that though, since they are trying to be like the state police so bad.
Your right about that, too many people need to justify their jobs to do anything like that
