How hard is the MBTA Police Academy
In what regard? Discipline=Hard, PT=Hard, Academics=Average. If you are prepared, you can get through any academy.
It's not....................................HAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAH..............Thats just for u Ken
If you're young and dumb, go to T!
If you're old and smart, go to Plymouth!
The T must be doing something right when some local pd's who have an academy in their own town send their officers to the T
What diff does it make to them 174 ????? Basic knowledge is basic knowledge. All important stuff is learned after the academy. All the chiefs want is numbers......
My academy bragged about self discipline but once the DI turned his back at dismissal every afternoon, people did whatever the fuck they wanted........ Square corners in the hallways going to the head???????? PFfffff. Only if the DIs were in the hall.
You guys ain't nothing if you didn't go to PoliceCorps @ Weymouth. Even the Weymouth Academy bowed back then!
Departments send people to whatever academy has open seats. The certification is the same at the end, and everything valuable will be learned during field training anyway.
Who gives a shit how hard or easy the academy is, the paper is the same in the end, your smart if you can get in!
Not all the instructors were "doing it". What's really important is the fact that Police Corps main theme was integrity above all else. Oh my goodness!?:sh:
That depends on who your FTO is. If you get a good one than I agree.
You should have, at minimum, four FTO's during field training. If none of the four know what they're doing, then you're working for one screwed-up department.
How does your FTO system work?
Is there some type of process behind it?
We have guys/gals thrown to the wolves their first week on the job. Since they are part of minimum manning this happens often.
anyone know if the start date is still tentatively march 10th ?
"Should," is the operative word. Our FTO program doesn't rotate FTO's or shifts. I was lucky enough to have a solid FTO.
Macrh 10th and the class is full.
my bad....website says march 3rd
March 3rd.......anyone on here starting that day? If so, be ready for it.:fire:
