    Tomorrow's the big day :)

    Physical fitness and written tests for the Metro Transit Police. Hopefully I pass the initial screening! I've been working out and studying for over a month... I'll give you guys a SITREP tomorrow afternoon when I get back :D

    Good luck man, I have a good friend with MT and he really likes it for the most part. I will say he does have a di**headed supervisor from what I have heard and seen of him. Thats all part of the fun of being an LEO. :wink:

    *D'oh* - I'm back already. I was asked for my expungement paperwork from a charge that was dismissed in court. The gentleman I spoke with (some sort of supervisor, the only guy in a suit jacket that I saw) said I could take the test and everything if I was 100% sure that my record was clear. I told him I'm only 99% sure, so he told me not to worry, that they have PLENTY of spots to fill - and that he wanted me to come back on July 14th to take the tests.

    I'm a little mad because no one told me to bring that stuff with me... if I knew I needed it I could have gotten it. Oh well. Now I have two more weeks to work out and study even more so I can get a 100% on that exam...

    BTW - I got a sneak peek at the competition. I have 3 things working to my advantage. 1 - I belong to one of the less well-represented races; 2 - I wasn't dressed all "thugged out" like some others; 3 I have no visible tattoos. I saw at least 20 people (out of about 100) with visible tattoos. If my experience in the military tells me anything, it's that they're generally frowned upon.

    Another thing I noticed... a lot of different sidearms being carried. I saw a lot of SIGs, one of the new H&Ks (either P2000 or P30), and a couple revolvers. Maybe they'll let me pack the M40-A1 ;)
