Looking for some insight-

I was told today by a reputable source that current reserves that do attend the bridge academy will be brought up to POST standards and therefore would be able to work in any full time capacity and not have to attend a FT Academy. Has anyone else heard of this yet?

Any knowledge would be appreciated.

98.125% of us don't have a TANGIBLE fact to report. I am pretty much sick of the wishful thinkers, doomsayers, rumor mongers, and general gossip-flies jumping from one turd to the next with the "reliable source" rumor. BULLSHIT! Grow up, suck it up and shut up. Bottom line is nobody knows with any certainty what is in store.

What can be said for sure is we don't know ;)

What I DO KNOW, however, is that we have an officer that just graduated from the 18 Week, SSPO academy this January and they got both an SSPO Certificate and MPTC Certificate (Reserve). They had to meet all of the same exams, quizzes, and standards as their SPMA counterparts, and their EXAMS and some CLASSES were online via the MPTC Acadis Portal.

When the members of SSPO 30 asked about their future, they were told by a certain high training official in the SP that "they don't know, but they are pushing for it."

But again.. who knows; its all speculation... r...right?

And...Fuck SSPO!

I heard the same - that SSPOs and reserves will both be offered some sort of bridge to full time certified. The person I heard that from got that info from a recent MACLEA call, so you'd hope that they'd be sharing accurate info... but like it's been said, no way to know for sure until it's officially official.

I heard from a reputable source that the sheriff's dept. are taking over the EPO's to run the courts. They're bringing back Mikey from CMPSA to be the new head of MSP and the DCR rangers are taking over the airport. CUT the SHIT kids, this thread is sounding like the court officer thread.

I heard the SSPO wasn't requiring the recruits to PT. What a joke

Oh,
You were there in New Braintree? just Who told you this? Sounds like the MACLEA call too. They don't have any regulatory juice, it will ALL be up to the commission(s)
