I thought it would be interesting to chat and discuss issues with police from around the world.

Hello, 

My name is Dan. I have a two year degree in Criminal Justice. I am currently pursuing a four year, bachelors, degree. I am hoping, before I graduate, that I can find a job in Law Enforcement and get started on my career. I have been a huge fan of the Art of Manliness for years; however, I have just now decided to join the community. I wanted to introduce and provide a bit of information about myself. Thank-you for having me as a part of your all's group.

Hiya Jarred, yeah, just got notified about your post. Good luck on the K9 job. Man, I do love those fur-missiles!

Wow, it's been a while since anyone posted here...

Is anyone still watching this group?

I'm an active Patrol Officer for an Agency in upstate SC. Been on for a little more than five years, looking to move into becoming a dog handler.

Looking forward to interacting with some of you!

Watch your 6.

Welcome aboard Jesse & Travis. I am new to this group as well, having just joined a couple of weeks ago. 

Travis - I feel your pain, my brother. I am a police officer in South Florida (just started my 29th year) and have felt the sting of Gov. Scott's changes. Unfortunately, I'm afraid that he isn't finished with us just yet so fasten your seat belt cause its going to be a bumpy ride.

Jesse - My best advise for you is two-fold. First, get yourself a good study guide for the written test. With any luck, you should be able to find one that is targeted at the Oregon test. If not, try the California test prep guide. Most states, especially out west, follow a lot of what California does. The next piece of advice is about the prepping for the Academy. Here there are a few things to consider like; physical conditioning and probable coursework. Most academies across the nation follow a block program of instruction that focuses on specific areas like Law, First Responder/First Aid, Patrol Procedures, Crime Scene Management, Investigations, Defensive Tactics & physical conditioning. I'll address the last one first because it's the easiest to answer. 

Get yourself a copy of military basic training conditioning manual (there are many to choose from) and follow the training program. Focus on running, push-ups, pull-ups, and overall endurance.

As for the other areas that I mentioned, they are a bit more difficult to prep for without knowing specifically what they will teach but I can recommend the following. For the Law block try downloading a copy of Oregon's procedural and substantive laws. Focus of memorizing the "elements" of substantive laws (theft, robbery, murder, etc.); and, develop an understanding of procedurally laws that directly impact police work (traffic stops, stop & frisk, Miranda, defining misdemeanors & felonies, etc.). As for the other areas, a few good books on general criminal investigative procedures, interviews & interrogations and emergency first aid medicine should be helpful.

Anyway I hope that this is helpful. I wish you good luck in your pursuit. A career in law enforcement is very tough but can be extremely rewarding. All my best.

Hello, I just want to introduce myself.  My name is Jesse Harper I am an american living in England.  I came across this site a couple months ago and it has helped me tremendously. I have joined the book group, shaving group and of course the thin blue line group.  I am particularly excited about the thin blue because the plan is when I move back to oregon with my family next year I will be applying to be a county sheriffs deputy. If there is any oregon police officers on this site could you please supply any training tips to prepare for the ORPAT test.  Any tips from anyone would also be greatly appreciated.

Thanks Kevin. I thought about becoming a Parole Officer. But our Governor is destroying our state system by privatizing as much as possible. A lot of brothers and sisters are losing their jobs. He has made it to where we have to pay into our own retirement. Fortunately, my Sheriff gave us all a cost of living adjustment equal to what we are having to pay in. I am really considering going Federal. Better pay and better benefits, and even if I start over I will still retire sooner. 20 years sounds a lot better than 25!
