    And pay into a bankrupted retirement system that's going to bone you in your later years? Not only no, but fuck no!

    Why even bother thinking about that position.

    Officers probably make rank in months rather than years.

    The department had to sell them off because they needed cash for ammo.

    Their new chief is a retired LAPD captain who happens to be from Detroit originally. We didn't like him very much so they can have him.

    He seems to move around a lot. First he went to Portland, ME as the Police Chief, (and actually seemed to do some good there, he created Lead Patrol Officers and revamped their FTO program.), then he left there for Cinncinati PD about a year ago and now he is going to DPD.

    It's funny how when a patrol officer jumps from department to department they are looked at as damaged goods, but the people judging are the same people that are getting away with it.

    He started out small in Portland, got a little bigger at Cinncinati, and now has his dream job at his hometown of Detroit. I can't say that's a bad thing I guess. I would probably feel the same way if I could do that back home too.

    So do police chiefs in Mexico, but I'm not moving down there either.

    Just think...if Detroit had civil service exams, they wouldn't be bankrupt. It's like government fundraising every two years.

    A lot of guys say they want to be cops, complain about the sytem, and would not even consider moving to Detroit. If you want to be a cop here is your chance. You will see and do more in a year than most cops get in a career. Use this as a stepping stone, but don't complain if you do not get your dream job and are still working for Dominoe's in 5 years.

    This right here is the attitude that will get you hired. I left MA and I have friends who have left MA to get on the job. It's worth if you actually want it.

    Forget about a year, you'll see more in a week in DET than most cops do in their career.
