Cool New LEO! Simpsonville SC

I just received a tentative job offer from a local PD in Greenville County. I'm curious about what to expect next. I have already completed the exam, interview and pt test. I have a poly scheduled for next week and im trying to figure out what will happen afterward. Thanks for any help you can give me guys. Wish me luck.

What would you like to know? The academy in SC is fairly easy...pay attention in class and don't over think things

If they say it'll be on the test...it'll be there...and the answers are very straight forward

Get your study on, get some sleep, and dont get caught up in the inevitable drama that comes from 70 adults living together in close quarters

I just have the same questions most people would have I guess. Whats the PT like? Can I come home on the weekends? what should I bring and for that matter not bring? No problem staying out of drama haha. I work in a restaurant now, you can't work anywhere else with more drama.

If PT is still the same...it's a cake walk...just show up and give it a shot

You can come home on the weekends no problem

I made sure to bring my own pillows and a blanket, and lots of snacks/bottled drinks to keep in my room...A laptop can be nice, but depending on your study habits...it could be a distraction

A buddy of mine just graduated 2 weeks ago and i'll check with him for anymore tips for the new setup/format

When I went thru it was only 9 weeks...it's now up to 12

All excellent info. My wife is preggo with our first also. Im thinking he will pop out some time during the academy. On their website it says emergencies are excusable during the week. Does that count? Kind of a rhetorical question really. I really can't miss something like that anyway. I am really pumped for the whole thing really. I got married in Feb. having a baby in August, and I just scored my dream job. I am on cloud nine!

Wow nice man congrats on everything! I know the feeling...I'm just kinda shocked the academy is that short. You guys must do work out there! The agency I work for is 6 months, with 2 months FTO. Anyways, congratz again.

Ill get it all figured out. I should probably talk to someone when I get down there about it.

I have also been looking at duty boots. I found some Timberland Pro Valors for like 75 bucks on sportsmansguide. It says on the site that you can wear oxfords or boots to class and what not. I think boots would be way better than my super uncomfortable bates oxs'.

i took 2 pairs of boots with me

one pair that was super shined up and nice for purposes of formations/class etc and then one beat up pair for range/driving/sim stuff

if you can...get military creases sewn into your khakis before going...makes ironing/starching a lot easier when you dont have to crease anything but the sleeves
