A Not So Serious Post About the Test

Use THIS post to tell stories about proctors, stories about alleged cheating and general screw ups that accompany every single test. Like the massive trip to the bathroom in 1997 where about 800 hundred people were trading answers at the break in the Merchandise Mart. Now THAT was a joke of a test.

some chucklehead was playing with a cell phone while a sergeant was standing in the room towards the end of the test. when the sergeant told him to put it away, he had to tell him several times and proceeded to explain that they had just thrown someone out for text messaging in the washroom. wouldn't you think of going into the stall if you were going to be sneaky?

Idiot F/4 in my class walked in and just sat down, had to be told to check in, duh, didn't you see everyone else check in and isn't that what you had to do for part 1? Had food from Starbucks with her as well. F/2 sitting next to me had to be told by procotor to stop smacking her gum during the test. Guess she had to be told that is ignorant and extremely annoying. Finally, proctor an F/1 had to rush to turn her phone off when it started ringing half-way through the test. Nice huh?

Great decision to have a test at the end of June in a CPS high school. I went through the morning session and it was hot, I felt for the afternoon people.

Room #275 afternoon session at Steinmetz had a exceptionally hot F/2 proctor. Big distraction. I'm now back on the westide driving to Mt. Sinai Hospital to see if they could give me some muscle relaxant, or ice, for this persistent swelling. She could sharpen my pencils anytime, anywhere.

wat a fucking joke is that wat our senior command staff thinks is important? CAPS. Yep that shit is important. Guess the house mouses will get made first since ther the ones who can sit all day, do nothing and study while they work. And since their surrounded by Caps all day I'm sure they did just fine. Why not ask a working copper's question like how to handle a homicide, a hazmat situation an HBT incident, an emergency plan. All the shit I paid big money for and wasted a lot of time on that people told me would be on the test. Instead I get to answer what do I tell a woman to do about her teenage son who might want to join a gang? You know what I tell her? I don't care . If you're so fucking concerned go bail your baby's daddy out of 26/Cal and get that bum to watch that future CB # and leave me the hell alone. I spend years working in a high crime area dealing with crap day in and day out. I've probably handled more homicide scenes then most Sgt's have and yet some fuck who hasn't got a scuff mark on his shoes or a scar somewhere on his body from fighting with duke all day will probably do better than me. Guess I should have worked the Caps office from the beginning or maybe been adopted by a Gold star.

Notice to report said "Do not bring cell phones." Yet all I see are F/1's talking on their Goddamn phones in the classroom in the hallway. Guess Dana's voicemail was blowing up today. I also gather that simple instructions are hard to follow for these people. And they want to be Sgt's. What a job.

This test is a wake up call to all police. This is what they want the Dept to be. Get use to it. With probably no pension at the end of the rainbow, I have 30 more years to see just how bad it can get.

Get over yourself already! If you are so damned smart, what the hell are you still fighting with "duke" for?

Another "hero" looking for an excuse and a scapegoat as to why he can't get promoted.

Common sense. That's all these tests are looking for. Some common fucking sense and rational thinking. It's a joke how many of these self-proclaimed ghetto warriors can't believe that there might actually be more to this job than just spanking "duke" and making one rock pinches.

Oh, I know: I'm a dick sucking clout baby, desk bitch, house mouse, etc, etc....NOT! NEWSFLASH: just because YOU think you should be a sergeant, doesn't necessarily make it so!

Anyone who is still fighting with "duke" on a daily basis after 5 years on this job would be working in the service indsutry for $8-$12 an hour without it, so man up, and shut the fuck up!

Crying like a bunch of god damn 3 year olds who lost their teddy bears! It's fucking degrading!

Here is the deal. While the "Test" was looking for common sense, it was not a cross section of real issues that Working Police Officers deal with on a day to day basis. It seems that the days of being the real Police are over and now we have coppers running the other way when "duke" is armed or they wont follow some verbal judo commands. Some of us just seem more ok about that than others.

So I say rock on to the guy your complaining about, because when the streets go up, I dont think reciting the crime triangle or having the UCR Code commited to memory is going to help.

Stay safe all and start studying for the next test....lol

I am soooo glad I blew this test off today. Sounds like there's gonna be a LOT of disgruntled PO's and lawsuits to follow, as usual.

Thank God I have little more than 10 years to go before I pull the plug. Good luck to anyone who really, really wants the job of Sergeant... you can HAVE it! I slept 'til 11am and now I don't have to worry about dropping 100 spots down on the list over one stupid question.

Answer to the 12 y/o...could it be the police explorer program.....the department is pushing an agenda folks and unless we open our eyes, us in blue shirts are not going anywhere.

yeah all the ghetto coppers would kick the door in on a apartment they did not see the off.w/a gun run into and when they find granny scared to death they will expect the sargy to clean up their mess.They all probably got that answer wrong

the answer is to not go into the apartment because you lost sight and didnt see him go in there and didnt see a gun. however in a perfect world you would seal the apartment,verify through an interview the witnesses reliabilty/believibility(sp),and apply for and obtain a search warrant.

Who else saw right through the question about the burglary and the foot pursuit?

Woman caught and fought with and handcuffed the offender without help? Didn't use her pistol as an impact weapon?

TRICK QUESTION!!!!

Even using her pistol she never would have been able to do all that.

There was no right answer

Hey guys stop your bitching, i didnt study for the test. I thought the test was more on how you would treat the troops as a sergeant.The last class made are all jagballs for the most part.So if your answers were fair to the p.o.'s and getting your job as a sgt done at the same time i think you will do well.I think the test was simple and i did o.k.But we all know what you think and your actual score are two different stories.I for one will not be talking shit to the p.o.'s that scored better than me ,now the other 30% are a different story.

To all you guys complaining about the make up of the test....What did you think they were gonna ask? I worked in the ghetto for my ENTIRE career before being promoted. I don't need to hear about "duke and crime scenes" been there. They still need supervisors who can read and write and know what the city "expects". How can you save a P.O.'s ass if you don't know how to bullshit the situation in accordance with department rhetoric? If you can't read, write and apply knowledge (a.k.a. I'm not a good test taker) then all the street knowledge in the world won't make you a good supervisor. A good boss should have both.

Now I know the slang broads for female cop's is often used by male rank and file all the way to the top of the koolaid food-chain. No surprise there but your across the board comment's of female officer's on the test only demonstrates you should not be on this job. If by remote chance you are a boss, I say just like the dept. to promote screwballs of no real value to the rank. A good boss does not trash their officer's, regardless of their gender. Please do us all a favor and never try calling yourself a cop. You have serious baggage get help.

Your attitude just show's another mental minus midget that cry's WAaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa what about me? You use across the board, negative comment's of female's as a cover up for your own lack of confidence.

You must have been in room 302 with me. How about he butchered the entire list of instructions. What a fucking joke, he couldn't read or pronounce ANYTHING. Everyone was shaking their head saying WHAT?
I also saw people on their cell phones, in the bathroom going thru papers in their purses and what's up with bringing SNACKS and COFFEE? Am I the only idiot who followed the rules?

Questions about the foot pursuit. Then the vehicle damage. Then question about what reports you need for this incident. Is that question about vehicle damage only or for the entire event
