Thanks for the peptalk PoPo. You should be a motivational speaker.

I know a few guys that got on there a while ago and the last one in 2002. And all of them had the FT academy. It's a $35000 savings to them plus they don't have to wait six months till you graduate and another two years before you really learn the job. It's just realty people, non-civil service PDs hire who they want and with whatever qualifications they want. But good luck!

I appreciate the reply j809. I have been on the site for a while now, and read every single post imaginable about what it takes to get on the job. I know that it is hard. Does someone want to tell me that Santa Clause doesn't exist either? I prepare myself every day to offer more to the town than someone else can. The fact is that Holliston has been very fair and professional during the hiring process. If I don't make it through, I would try again if they were ever looking for another officer, because the town is great. I believe that persistence is a positive characteristic of most police officers, so if I have to 'waste gas'(according to popo) to get experience taking a test, or sitting through an oral board; then so be it. It shows that I have the initiative to be a great officer, and gives me that much more experience for the next opportunity. I believe in training for the inevitable opportunity that is out there rather than focus on the negative aspects of any process. Thanks for the input.

That's great, I am glad you are so motivated, but at the end of the day, the one with a FT academy certificate gets the job in Holliston. Good luck!!
