    Hello,


    I am starting the academy next Saturday (April 25, 2015) and I was curious if someone has an expired vest that no one is using? I am an extra-large shirt and I stand at about 5'11".


    Thanks for your consideration,
    Mike

    Bulletproof vest? No such thing...it's a media misnomer.

    You're looking for soft body armor. If you haven't already, I would contact the agency that is sponsoring you for the academy to see if they have an extra that you may be able to borrow for the duration of the academy. You'll want to make sure that whatever threat level vest you get (II, IIA, or IIIA) covers the handgun caliber that you are using as a weapon (at minimum). I don't have a vest for sale but am throwing that out there for you. Good luck.

    some AFSME environmental services staff at a certain state university in eastern New York don't believe officers need them because they don't do real police work.

    Disregard this posting for the body armor. My agency won't sign off on the 20 hour firearm block in the academy.

    Just curious but how in the fuck is that gonna work...What academy are you attending where you can go but not complete all the training?

    The reserve academy. The 20hr firearms training isn't mandatory.

    You might want to think twice about joining that agency.
