    Sometimes people realize it's not for them after experiencing it for a bit. I thought I had a down-to-earth view of what the job was, and I'm still amazed every day as to how wrong I was.

    While he quit, it's not on the same level of a day-one dropout who can't hack it. Sure, he took up a seat that might have been better filled, but at least he realized it wasn't for him before it was too late.

    Re: hack it for minimum wage if you want it - Regardless of how bad someone wants it, some people are smart enough to not try for a gig like PPD. Not many people can hack 6mo with no / almost no income, and without a guarantee paycheck tucked behind your certificate at graduation it'd be foolish for someone like me to even try. Who's going to pay my bills? My mortgage? Then what after graduation?

    You don't experience anything close to the real job while you're in the academy. I hate to sound like a salty prick by saying "Hey kid, forget everything they taught you in the academy", but it's not that far from the truth.

    For years, I've had to de-program graduates of the Plymouth Academy from the notion that you can't PC people from their own residence. We do it all the time, you just have to properly articulate the reasons in your report.

    That's what a lot of cops think, that you can't P/C from a house.

    Ya, its like that in a lot cities I suspect. Its a joke the way some of these experienced supervisors will tell you cant do something when in fact you can. Drives me crazy!

    Seems really dumb to pay minimum wage during the academy. They are losing out on tons of applicants who may make great officers simply because these people can't live on that wage. Providence will end up with a bunch of kids that are living at home with mom and dad with no life experience. Just seems stupid to ask someone to have his family live on minimum wage just so they can become a cop in their fair city.

    and what qualifies as life experience? you can't get any living at home while you hunt for a job?

    Life experience would be someone who already works in law enforcement in some capacity, military,ems, security, maybe firefighting. People who would have some skills to bring to the table that may already be working and paying their bills. People who can't take a 10 dollar an hour pay cut. Just saying it seems like Providence is missing out on a whole bunch of people because of this policy.

    A job beyond the supermarket and financial responsibilities beyond your cell phone and car insurance for the car mommy and daddy bought you.

    Min age for LE should be at least 25. Time and again I've watched these fucktards with their college degrees and a blank resume be useless fucks on the job until they get shitcanned due to immaturity.

    I'd like this post a million times if I could.

    Chicago PD institutes a 25 y/o policy. My opinion is that life experience counts for a ton. Funny how much I thought I knew in my 20's.

    Then you'll be a cop and realize how foolish it is that you were a mod on a cop forum and how much you knew back then.

    GMass you nailed it. I've seen and continue to see the same problems with the kids that are getting hired. Most simply don't have people skills so the escalate a simple situation into a physical altercation. Oh and your college degree isn't worth shit when dealing with some transient meth head who hates cops..Just saying.

    Wow, what the fuck? Are you bipolar or something? You have some posts that are great, post information that is helpful to even an old fuck like me who likes to think he knows everything, and then you go and kick the hornet's nest and start shit with longtime members. I'm not even talking about these fuckin' noobs that need a beatdown, but I can think of at least three times where you have come across as a real punk that I'd backhand.

    Your douche nozzle is spraying everywhere lately.

    Gmass gets high on himself sometimes. Then he remembers he was sitting in a room taking the same test as the rest of us, 6/15.

    Sorry for such a late reply i didn't read this thread before. There is no "bound to providence agreement"

    and as far as being "RI Certified" you would need to apply for a waiver to the RI POST. Providence and RI State Police run their own academy so therefore they are not POST certified upon graduation.

    i just got a letter to appear for my board on monday :) do they really do background checks before an oral board? you would think the background check would come after the oral board granted they liked you and wanted you to move forward in the process..Is this SOP or is there another back ground test after? Just wandering..

    Easier to arrest the applicants with warrants. It's like fish in a barrel.
