Well i took my written test and physical test and passed both for the police academy. Now there are 3 ways to get in. first is get hired on by a department which there are two currently doing so in my county and be sponsered. secound get a department to do an Autherized to attened (which i'll call AA). To get an AA the department does every thing as if they where hireing you background, fingerprints, poly and psyc. third is to self sponser wich means i pay the academy to do my background, fingerprint, poly and psyc.

What i want to know is what people would suggest i would much rather go with option 1 or even better from my perspective is option 2. option 1 obviously because i'm guarnteed a job opon compleating the academy and i get paid the whole time while attending. but option 2 i think would be better because I know i will finish high in my class and could then get hired on mid academy by a department of my choice.

secoundly any suggestion on how to go about getting my AA or geting sponsered. and any thing i should be exspechialy aware on in my aplication or for my poly?

Guy I'm not sure you should ask a serious question here without cross referencing with people you can actually evaluate face to face. What does it say about you as a potential police officer that you have to come to a loosely moderated website and ask people who claim to be LEOs a serious question regarding your career choice?

Anyone who has an LEO tag has been verified as such by the forum staff. Same with Military tags, Amateur/Pro fighter tags.
The OP has asked an intelligent question in the correct forum.
Please follow his example.

If this is how you choose to express yourself in writing, or even remotely how you express yourself in speech, don't do the following:

-Sponsor yourself

However, if you do, don't do the following:

-Hold your breath for getting a job afterward

Consider it charitable that I reveal this to you in mutual anonymity, rather than loudly, cleverly, and repeatedly in front of 50 classmates (as will happen at an academy).

How I speak and write formaly differ greatly from how a write and speak informaly. Expressing my self in a formal matter i am very delibrate in word choice.

How ever when speaking or writeing where ever i just let what rolles off my head go straight to the page.

So - they're going to be mean at the academy?

I'd be fuckin sick of that kind of **** by now if I didn't find it so hilarious. I can't wait!

You need to make more of an effort, because it doesn't reflect well on you at all.

This is just friendly advice, don't get defensive.

We had but one funny drill instructor.

"I'm afraid your dismal display is a portense of things to come in drill performance.
Do you know what a 'portense' is? It's like an Omen! Ever see that movie? It's pretty scary. KIND OF LIKE YOUR PERFORMANCE RIGHT NOW!!!! (to the 'slow' guy)

"You look like 50 pounds of dog food stuffed into a 25 pound bag!!" (to the fat guy)

"What's with your marching?! You look like you're about to bust into a saloon!" (To the bow-legged guy)

"Is there a toddler teething on your weapon?!" (to the guy who forgot his weapon)

"I'll beat you like a baby seal. If you think that's unkind go ahead and call Peta, I'll smoke them too!" (to everyone).

Some from mine:

"Oh, we wanna play games? I got more games than Milton Bradley." (prior to smoke session)

"Ma'am, is that your ass in the air durring pushups or did a whale beach itself in my sandpit?" (To fat chick with her ass in the air attempting pushups)

"That one-nut bike fag is still twice the man you can ever aspire to be" (To guy who decided to wear his "live strong" bracelet durring PT)

"Aye Aye sir?!?! Who the helll are you, Captain Crunch? Do I look like Popeye the freakin sailor to you?" (To sailor who slipped up and responded "aye sir")

And the funniest one of all:

"Easy Day people, easy day." (Biggest. Lie. Ever.)

The **** that comes out of those people's mouths...

"Who the **** is you, cockstrong lookin' private?" My DS to me on the first day of training.

"Marchand would eat the asshole out of a pig if it would hold still for it!" Mean DS to the fat kid as he ate his thanksgiving meal.

"Ima - Ima smoke dem mutherfuckin balls privates - smoke them little balls!! Roodie to the toodie, la de DA!" I'm at a loss to explain that one - but it was said.

God I loved every minute of it. Nothing like being terrified for nine weeks with hourly comedy breaks thrown in.
