Yes I have experience with a state trooper.

He was a fucking asshole. On a two lane highway at night without any lights on doing 40 in the right hand lane. I came up on him at about 77 I think in a 65.

Fucking idiot thinks he can just break the law and endanger the public. I would've brought these two facts up to him, but I didn't want to get busted for illegal tint and no front license plate.

Who's watching the police? Nobody, I tell you.

Quit being polite. Tell us how you really feel.

hmm... i feel like being a state trooper would be boring. dont most of them go on patrol alone? well thats what i have noticed in the NY/NJ area which i frequent. same thing up here in canada. city cops get more action. at least youre not just catching speeders and attending to accidents all the time. plus city cops almost always patrol in pairs. keeps things more interesting i think.

Awesome movie ! Ohio troopers need to watch that movie more often. they also need to ground their damn aerial traffic enforcement, purely about money and not about safety.


OT... but Chewy, do you work at the Clinic? I think I've seen your ride parked on Cedar by E.100th or so. Brave man for leaving such a nice car in that neighborhood not in a patroled lot.

training for state police is no walk in the park. It depends on the state you want to be a trooper for. A lot of former marines become troopers but no worries us fellow big ole green machine folk also do law enforcement lol

No walk indeed. My state's academy will last 6 months (starting this Monday) and is a live-in program. The program is modeled after military training and both former Army and Marine servicemen have attested that the state academy is more intense than basic training. Not being ex-military myself, it's going to be a wild ride.

I can't say definitively, but many of the academies I am familiar with on the east coast are residential. Often however, you have leave on the weekends as long as you haven't accumulated too many demerits. Removing candidates from his or her family is just one of many stressors employed by academy staff.

lopealle,

Try fielding your question to the folks over on the officer.com forums... I'm sure they could provide much more insight than here.

I receive Trooper pay while completing the academy. You might want to look into local or county agencies that more than likely do not have a live in academy. Show up in the morning and back with your family at night. But then again, you can't wear the title of Trooper.

Uh, no. I believe that many academies still compensate you whether you attend a residential or non-residential academy. Where do you live, or plan on living when you are discharged?
