Why would anybody think these fools would get it right in Robbins? The hires all have to have the necessary training and can easily be tracked through the training board. There is a reason they were in Pheonix and part timers. They can't get hired by a legitimate department! The Goof actually questions why his personal information which includes orders of protections, should be questioned? Yes, it should. That is checked when an officer is hired and would prevent a new officer from being hired. Several orders do protection issued against you would certainly lead a person to believe there's a pattern there involving domestic violence. Thats when they are issued.....when there's domestic violence. Stay on them Southtown, this stuff is comical.

Simple answer just hire your friends and family and forget about standards to becoming a police officer. Wait for the training board to catch you.
