I actually had to Google "STCC" because I had no idea what or where it was. Looking at the posting, it is pretty clear it is a State Campus PO job. Anyway, here it is (I Love Google):

Springfield Technical Community College

Springfield at the former Springfield Armory. The neighborhood surrounding the school is terrible and even though there's a large rot iron fence surrounding most of the campus, it's not all that safe and the short sighted morons running the place (I understand the chief is pretty good and has tried to get firearms, it's the college admin. I speak of) can't understand that COPS carrying firearms at a former ARMORY site wouldn't be a bad thing.

Good state bennies and a nice steady paycheck in an established department though.

Springfield has some terrible areas but I know that their campus police arrest without going through any politcal office as to who they should or should'nt charge. When you say "morans" you have to be specific! They have several SSPOS guys that are squared away and I know some of them. Yes they have a couple non-proactive officers but so do most places

As far as firearms its coming regardless of what the school said. Some of the officers are pushing certain agendas hard. Lots of tools working at STCC. They have Jurisdiction on Federal site (Armory) and they've made several arrest off campus.

Lots of overtime and training opportunities from what I know!

Attended several trainings there in the past and it didn't seem too busy around campus even during the daytime hours. However I will agree that the surroundings outside the campus are terrible.

Maybe if they replace the rot iron fence with a wrought iron fence the campus will be more secure. lol. :)

I was waiting for some english-teacher-wannabe to catch that!
:p

Jim;
Although a wrought iron fence is indeed low-process simple iron made into fence material, it does oxidize rather quickly or "rust" as some would have it. Now although most metals oxidize, (rust) it is similar in the fact that they degrade like wood. Wood being an organic celluose matter tends to decay as "rot", much akin to metals that "rust". In any event I hope you feel properly chastised by new wise guy for mispelling wrought iron fence. Although you had the descriptive term correct, you simply spelled it like it sounded and this in turned caused simple new guy to feel the need to correct you. Please don't EVER do that again without checking with me first buddy! YIKES!!!
:rolleyes:

If someone hadn't picked up on my gaff, I'd have been very disappointed. Before I scrolled down, I reread what I had typed and slapped myself in the forehead (which explains so much since I DO that so much) and I thank you for your correction.

No doubt an iron fence that was rotting away would be a piece of cake to breach!

Just having a little fun at your expense Kil. My spelling aint always perfect either so I'm sure you'll have your chance to return the favor soon enough.

mpd61 I'm far from an english teacher but I am admittedly a sarcastic S.O.B. I do see that you have quite a gift for teaching though.

Nothing wrong with cracking on the iron fence. I guess bad politics has to do with what some departments has to deal with. Especially with "Historic comittees" and Higher Ed not seeing the big picture of what could go wrong !
