    Just got home, I was sworn in this afternoon and had training until about 30 mins ago. The training was on take down tactics and my arm is all bruised up from it. All I know is if this is the type of training I'm going to have then this is going to be a great trip. I was so much fun throwing a guy six inches taller than me and he had a good fifty pounds on me across the floor with what seemed like little effort.

    That is some fast moving training, we had to endure 3 days of paperwork and speeches before we even set foot in to the Police Academy. LOL!

    Congrats and Good Luck!

    That's one of the main reasons I really tried getting into this department. I know I'm only a reserve so I won't try to act like I'm anything I'm not but the reserve officers for this department are used quite a bit and have a lot of good training. Obviously I'm not stupid enough to think our training is as good as the full blown academy but I really want to jump in head first and become the best reserve possible.

    Be prepared for questions, I'm sure I'll have quite a few through this process.

    You will get plenty of answers from people that you can be sure are cops here. If/when you make it through an Academy I hope you get to find out. Go take a look at the Holding Cell to see what I mean. Here is a good one to start with:

    Our department has an auxiliary, not sure if that is the same as reserve or not. But they have to go thru training as well and it is continual when assigned to a precinct. Here is an overview of the program.

    http://www.nyc.gov/html/nypd/downloa...rview_2008.pdf

    The academy is a great place for learning the books, tactics and techniques, but the real learning starts when you hit the streets. Most importantly is keeping yourself safe, always wear a vest, know your surroundings and keep ears and eyes wide open.

    I figured as much, the academy will teach me the what techinques and let me get the muscle memory I need but I'll actually learn the job when I'm doing it.

    Here's the link to the reserves I'm a part of - Police Reserve Program

    From what I've found there aren't many reserves positions in Wisconsin. I've been able to find tons in some other states but it seems like they are few and in between here. I'm not complaining because this should make it easier for me to get a job as a full time officer as I'll have that many less other reserves going against me.
