I had conversation with (2) FT PO's one from Martha's Vinyard and the other from Central Mass, both of which are in the running. One scored a 98 and the other a 99. They were completing a course at New Braintree Academy on behalf of their respective departments. Each informed me in seperate conversations that their background checks have recently been completed. In the last several weeks this has taken place. During this same period, I had conversation with a Trooper in the videography section of the New Braintree Academy. I was informed that they are readying themselves for the videoing of the next class coming "this summer". Several other troopers from C3,5,7 have mentioned that "rumors" are for June. P.S. the (2) PO's told me they were getting ready to burn up their sick leave.
