    Loved that expression from Officer Kesler when she was assigned Latoya as a partner.

    They sure do drive by that same Taco Bell a lot.

    I just watched it, and I liked it.

    Few things though...

    1. Running code while transporting a prisoner?
    2. Three weeks only in academy?
    3. "Two years ago I was a drug addict, now I'm gonna be a cop" (or something similar) - Jack Osbourne

    Is 1 and 2 really how it works in Indiana?

    1. No you would not do that unless you had a very violent prisoner and even then you would not really run code. You may push the pedal down further than normal but not running code.

    2. Its probably a part-time or reserve academy.

    3. Three years ago he was a drug addict (Oxy is what he was hooked on). And he actually has cleaned up quite a bit from a lot of articles I have seen him published in.

    1. Exactly. Seems it needed to look better and more "cop-like" on TV
    2. It was a reserve academy. They are armed and sworn in though.
    3. Still seems fishy to me. A normal applicant would probably have been washed because of it.

    I am an Indiana cop and no, that isn't how it works here. Hell, our POTC is three weeks. LOL Reserve officers do not have to go through the real academy.

    So your academy for the Full time officers is only 3 weeks long?
    If that is so are any of your agencies hiring shit I should be able to do a straight transfer .

    I watched some of it.

    I'd say Wee-Man and Estrada were the best two at what they were doing.

    And even they sucked.

    But....it was alright. All of the scenes of the squads going hot to different places was stupid though. They need to stop that.

    No, the academy is much longer than three weeks. POTC is a course of instruction given to recruits after the academy but before FTO.

    Eh, I doubt I'll watch it.

    My mom was giving me an email play by play while it was on. Even after I told her it was stupid and didn't really care.

    I understand the Reserve Academy being shorter than the regular academy, it's that way here, too. But surely a normal reserve academy is longer than three weeks? Even if they 40 hours a week, that's only 120 hours.

    I think the Reserve Academy here is at least 400 hours, and the full-time academy is 640.

    Quite frankily, being able to be a (reserve) cop after 3 weeks of training, is an insult to every full-time cop out there.

    Their are quite a few things I don't like about it, from a cop's view, but I watch it as a regular person watching TV to be entertained. I don't imagine it as completely real. Kind of like The Shield, or Cops, or other law enforcement shows.
