    NYPD Recruits Given iPods To Study For Exams

    NYPD Recruits Given iPods To Study For Exams


    POSTED: 1:47 pm EST December 3, 2007
    UPDATED: 1:54 pm EST December 3, 2007



    NEW YORK -- Members of the NYPD’s Police Academy class are getting ready for final exams by picking up Police Department video issued iPods.
    To help with exam preparation the N.Y.P.D. has made available to recruits iPods fully loaded with Police Academy coursework and classroom instruction.
    Each iPod includes video downloads of the courses taught at the Academy during the Recruit’s six months of training.

    Classroom instruction cover a range of complex subject matter inherent to law enforcement including criminal procedure, the New York State Penal Law, warrants, ethics and community policing.
    The coursework downloaded to iPods does not include security sensitive instruction.
    “Having coursework available on an iPod affords our Recruits a convenient way to review subjects when preparing for their exams,” Police Commissioner Raymond W. Kelly said. “Now a recruit can watch a class on “search and seizure” while going home on the subway.”
    The current Police Academy class includes 947 recruits and is scheduled for graduation on December 27, 2007. In addition to the academic curriculum Recruits are required to pass tests for physical strength and agility, police skills and professional conduct.

    And to think I had to make it through using just texts and handwritten notes.


    How did I ever manage?

    I can see it now...

    "Hold on; let me watch this video about handcuffing before I try to arrest that guy!"

    "Just a second, I'm watching the iPod on building searches now..."

    Weren't the recruits supposed to be paying attention in the academy? Weren't they supposed to take notes, and I'll bet they were given handouts and other material, too.

    $100+ a piece. Could have used that money to help with raises.

    The current rookie pay situation (a disgrace) WILL come back to bite the city in the ass.

    Make no mistake about it.

    Kind of reminds me of the movie Demolition Man, where the cops surround Wesley Snipes and get advice on how to handle the call by asking a small handheld computer what to do as they do it.

    I was thinking the same thing.
