I worked there a few yeqrs ago, great people to work with I mean the Public Safety staff, and other officers, the administration is clueless like your typical colleges. But the people are great to work with, but you won't do Police work, its a unarmed, dept and they won't let put the words "Police" on anything. Its a good steppig stone, if you are not able to be waivered for the academy they will send you so that is a start, I left because I was able to get the waiver and they would not put me in the academy so I left and found a place that would. The money is not great to start but it gets better you can get tons of time off.

Come on where did you hear that! I dont know Weaton College PD but I am sure they dont have to bring in students books. Cops are like little old ladies they like to start rumors and thats why are credibility is always in question.

I worked at Wheaton College and never carried anyone's bags anywhere, that is just a silly rumor. But that reminds of when I worked at a private school in Wmass, where a student I give an escort to thought I was gonna but her bags in the trunk, the attitude she had when she asked me was like how dare I not jump to it, I just looked at her like she had 30 heads and got into the cruiser until she was able to take a hint, hahahahaha. That happened more then once but we were not expected to do it, but some of the snot nosed kids did, needless to say we did'nt.

While we are telling Wheaton stories, I went to the SSPO Academy with a guy from Wheaton. He told me about a night he was ordered by his Lt. to plunge a students toilet :!: :oops: According to this officer the Chief backed the Lt.’s decision to plunge :!: The funniest part of the story was the next day this officer walked into the Chief’s office wearing his duty belt with a plunger on it. Needless to say he got a few days off.

Or do it and then call in sick for a few weeks afterwards with some illness...

I don't know about you but i didn't recieve any plumbing training from MCJTC, so as far as anyone's concerned I have no idea how to plunge a toliet and it could take a whole shift and some OT for me to figure it out.

What SSPO was that, Wheaton does not have LTs and I cant see that happening maybe before or after my time.

about carrying the bags. i was on a ride along and the officer i was with told me he once worked at wcpd and he had to help move the students in and out of the dorms by carrying luggage. i am NOT making this up. i have no reason to. if someone would be ordered to plunge crap from a toilet why would you not think that the officers would be told to go as far as carry luggage??

That plunger story is foolish. I feel bad for the guy that had to do that. But the part about him adding a plunger to his duty belt is great. Nice to see he has a sense of humor.

Wheaton College:

Pay isn't bad, benifits are great, officers are good; at least the core group of them who have stayed through thick-an-thin.

Plunger story; I'll put this one to rest with the TRUTH...

As a former public safety officer at Wheaton, they USE TO employee and overnight public safety officer, who was really a maintenance man. He had no police training, but after bieng on the job they wanted him to feel like he "fit in" and put him in the same uniform.

He did patrol, respond to calls, but always let the academy trained guys deal with the incidents. Monthy he would check pumps and gauges around campus and turn the reports into maintenance. He has since retired and they have replaced the position with a full time "public safety officer".

This brings me to the plunger story. It's true, a students toilet overflowed and this officer was asked to "plunge" the toilet rather than calling in a plumber. This was the two-sided position. Later he was upset and a Sergeant walked into the Directors office and had a plunger on his duty belt. The Director had a sense of humor and no one was suspended.

I was in class #5.

:roll:

Yes, thats right, I believe his name was Don, nice guy. He wore the uniform but was actually a maintainer, lol He was the ONLY one who engaged in that nonsence buit it was by choice.
