    Commercial Vehicle Training

    I've always wondered since I started pursuing a LEO career how much emphasis and time is placed on commercial vehicle training in the academy. Example, you pull a 18 wheeler over and want to check his log, or his equipment.

    I don't recall recieving any training on CV Enforcement.

    I leave that to the troopers.

    We got none at the academy but we have two guys that are CMV trained through the VSP along with some of the Bedford Co. guys. Sometimes when I stop one I will look at the logbook and if its obvious its out of date I will call a CMV officer

    Same here the troopers take care of all that. Although I have been thinking about going to training for CMV stuff.
    Being the best is not what always counts. What counts is always trying your best.

    Remember who you are, and where you came from. That way you never get a big head.

    May those that lost their lives in 9-11 RIP, for the things you did not many could do. You left so many behind so that you could save so few. For now we stand strong as one, and will not look back till the fight is done. (me)

    I had none. VSP has a hard on for CMV!!!!! Troopers eat up trucks....I usually won't mess with them too much. If they are speeding then I'll stop them but if they are decent then I'm OK with giving them a warning. They drive for a living so they have to screw up really bad for me to write them.

    And for the record I have yet to pull one for speeding.
