Yes technically you can still self sponser, its alot trickier than it was a few years ago. If you look at the academy application it doesnt have the spot to check off for "self sponsor" anymore. It now says what your postion will be upon graduation, full time police officer or part-time police officer. So as long as your are part-time/premanent intermittent you can still do it but thats the only way. I honestly belive all these changes happened because of equipment/cruisers. In my academy there were about 12 self sponsors I can remember and when it came to firearms week and evoc, no one could get a shotgun or cruiser so they had to double up with anyone that would help them out. I remember the director being pissed that alot of chiefs signed the form then washed there hands of any further obligations. Someone posted earlier about needing to know someone, thats very true if you are part-time and the chief has no problem giving you the above mentioned you should be all set. Just remember you can still be bumped by someone who will be "full-time" upon graduation. But where theres a will theres a way, there always is.

This should be a pop up when you log on to Masscops, then e-mailed to every newly registared user. Just think of all the thread space we'll savepopo said:UPDATE!UPDATE!UPDATE!
It's official, no more attending full time academy unless you are hired as a full time sworn officer for a municipality.
Come on now..........we've all asked a stupid question at one point or another. Give the guy a pass this time.....if he's truly a dumbass we'll be able to laugh at his next posts:baby01:JoninNH said:No shit huh? Or you could just ban NuclearAudio... :rofl:
He's asked the same question six times in six different places on the board. I think we can laugh at him now. \\/ :85565:DevilDog1775 said:Come on now..........we've all asked a stupid question at one point or another.

No a dumb ass sued because he got injured and was a self sponsor. He sued the council, academy and PD that sponsored him. Also other dumbasses showed up to EVOC with Hertz rental Crown Vics.Nuclearaudio said:I dont think that the reason you cannot self sponser is a equiptment issue. i was told, that someone was sent to the academy and was pissed because they didn't get a job. and sued the Dept. Not Sure
If I was the EVOC Instructor, I would have let them use them. Heck, I would have let EVERYONE use them.popo said:Wish I was Delta.
