    Kilvinsky I think, therefore I'll never be promoted.

    I wonder if they still get calls from concerned parents who don't know there's ANOTHER Harvard (i.e. TOWN OF...) out there?

    If they would be willing to send a person to the full-time academy then you would be their man. I would say 5-0, but I want him on my PD when we have a future opening. If anyone here is lucky enough to get the job, you will be working for a great Chief. Chief Edward Denmark is a very smart man and an outstanding leader. I have the utmost respect for that man.

    LMFAO!!! I don't need a part time gig with another agency.
    What I would LIKE to get is a part time job with another agency now cuz I'm
    getting close to gold watch time. But...it's not a perfect world, and alot of Mass Chiefs are drinking the 'liability cool aid" regarding reserves/specials...
    It's amazing that EVERYBODY wants FT academy for every position these days.

    Thanks to self-sponsoring, and the resulting glut of academy-trained people, it's a buyer's market.

    Back in the day, a full-time MCJTC/MPTC academy diploma was the Willie Wonka Golden Ticket. Now, it's just the price of admission.

    AND...they got pay and benefits while they were in the academy...a much better system, IMHO.

    We had to show the academy staff our pay stubs on a regular basis, to prove that we were actually employed as full-time police officer recruits.

    Kilvinsky I think, therefore I'll never be promoted.

    We had two bounced from my class who were employed as PTers (the third would say, "they don't seem to know about me, and they ain't gonna know about me"). This was after about 5 of the 12 weeks. A lot of political pull (one of our guys had good connections at the State House) and the endorsement of the academy director kept them in. He told them to stay and continue while the rangling went on. It paid off.

    Woody boy we only have two PT officers , one has ft job next town over. We can't spend $35k per new officer to train and wait for them to graduate and then train them. That's the reality of many smaller communities these days. Need someone to start with experience and already trained.
