September 14, 2010Well after months and months of waiting I finally got an offer late last week for a part time deputy position, I start Oct 4th and will do 10 weeks of full time FTO and then if all goes well I`ll be hitting the road. yeah it`s not a full time gig but it`s in my own county and I only have to go to the end of the street to go to work and I know the PT guys there now are working a ton of hrs too so I guess we`ll see how it goes, I`m stoked and it`s exactly what I was trying for. On that note this weekend I am having a kinda of celebration BBQ and if anyone wants to come, your more than welcome.

September 14, 2010Congratulations!!!!!!!!!
But I won`t road trip; even if we knew each other. I`m not a big fan of law enforcement personnel after getting cited today for interfering with an ambulance after it hit my legally parked truck AT MY APARTMENT. After the officer who pounded on my door laid into me and threw me against the building for being legally parked there I damn near committed a felony.... that officer is only alive because of the badge.
And just in case this angers anyone... look me up. I`m not hard to find.
In this case I will NEVER apologize.
September 14, 2010Dom, there are 3 sides to each story, yours, the cops. the third side is where the truth lays. Based on just your story it sounds like you could file a civil suit agains the officer. Photos, witness statements etc will help your case. Be prepared for court becuase the police union will have high priced lawers on their side.
Now if the officer did those things because you weren`t cooperating, then your civil suit becomes nearly impossible to prove.
September 16, 2010Congrats Daryl on the new job, that is great to hear. Now if only you were a little closer, I would be there to help you celebrate. Keep us posted on how things go.
September 19, 2010Congrats Darryl!! I can`t wait till this winter when I`ve completed school and can start looking for LEO jobs. I`m waiting to hear back about a volunteer position with the county water patrol.
To Dom, if you`ve got nothing nice to say........
October 14, 2010good to here . so you got a week in by now.
October 27, 2010Well I am almost a 1/3 the way through. Heres a pic of me getting sworn in.
December 5, 2010well I am almost through with FTO and it`s going well, they are looking at advancing me through sooner, since we have a new Sheriff starting the first of the year there are going to be some changes and there are more to go through the FTO yet, but they don`t want to start them till I am done. Also on top of this a couple weeks ago I picked up another PT job working at the street rod shop in town, they are busy and I have known the owner for awhile and he called asking if I`d be interested in working PT for him, didn`t take long for me to say yes to that.They have lots to do and more waitng to come in. So basically I have been working some pretty crazy hrs between the two, like last Thurs. I worked that night from 7pm to 5am then went to the shop and worked 8-5 there on Fri. went back Sat. morning and did another half day. I`ll go in Mon. and do a half day then work that night on patrol.
December 5, 2010Its hard to complain about having work work right now, but I know what its like when you`re burning the candle at both ends.
I`ve got just 7 days left till I get my AS in Law Enforcement. I will be taking my POST in February. I can`t wait to start applying to jobs.
Keep up the hard work Darryl.
