Is there another way to join the PI acadamy, instead of being sponsord?
Funny, I'm from Massachusetts too, like 99% of this board, and it's called the Reserve Intermittent Academy....Nuclearaudio said:Massachusetts, where i am from, it's called the PI Academy,
Permanent Intermittent Academy, None of my surrounding towns are sponsoring anyone, the sheriffs department is sending all there recruits thru the towns because MCJTC will not take any sheriffs.
I was told as reciently as two months ago that Sheriff's Department's could NOT sponsor to the R/I Academy. I was told this by a training coordinator at the academy... go figure.2-Delta said:As stated try for an Aux dept or just random towns...even though they can sponsor you without hiring you at the end, most wont due to the risk of dragging their name through the mud if you turn out to be a sh*tbird. Also remember Harbormasters, state college PD's, and Sheriffs (yes thats been resolved) can also sponsor you. So go out there and try to make some new contacts, and dont give up. This is Mass, land of the hurry up and wait.
Maybe they were looking for someone who could spell or write coherent sentences.Nuclearaudio said:When did they resolve the Sheriffs dept? i tried tking the Corrections officer test, looks liek they hired 99's and 100's. seeing as i gt a 96..,
As for Full time officers, can a College send a Hiree to the academy?, full time, or will that never return? was there some kind of lawsuit behind that, someone didn't get a job or sometihng?
The MPTC stopped allowing non-city/town PD's from attending their in-service, simply because there was no room. That policy might have implemented for the full academy, also.2-Delta said:As I said before I have a friend who is attending the current R/I academy and he is in there with a handful of deputies as well as a couple asst.harbormasters and a few college po's (BSC PD i believe). Maybe the full time academy is another story as far as who can get sponsored etc.
