Atleast he showed enough restraint at the the time to punch the fridge instead of his wife!

Why is it that in order to be a cashier at Redners you have to go through a rigerous personality test; yet they'll let ANYONE be a law enforcement officer?

They don't let anyone be a officer. you have to pass 4 tests before your even aloud in the academy, one being a psych test

I'm glad the guy didn't hit his wife or harm his kids. I hope he can get some help for his anger.
Not sure why he needed to file two reports for the same injury.

4 tests, the psyc test is so easy any nut can pass it, then you have a agility test which means the candiate stays fit until after he is hired the immediately starts eating donuts, the there is a common sense test which depending on how many people show up you could be 1st on the list and have a very low IQ, then there is the panel review, wow 3 people interviewing you with tough questions like if we gave you this job would you shoot someone? obvious questions

here we go..........

If this person was not a cop, would have this story made it in the paper? People defraud insurance companies all the time (Mostly b/c they defraud us) and it never makes the paper

oh wait....... here we go again

who will be the first to say that Officer's are held to a higher standard?

And exactly when did you take these tests? At least when I post FACTUAL information, I know what I am talking about. Get your facts straight before letting your fingers do the walking .....

Mr. You think you know it all. All police departments do not have the same requirements, the smaller towns are less stringent, then the city departments. Look at the area, where he was from, until a few years ago, shooting pigions was a sport. Too bad, it still isn't.
I assumed he was talking about getting into the police academy....sorry

i was talking about getting into beth or allentown police force. the testing with most places is very standard and overseen by the civil service. the only real requirement changes in becoming a police officer has been that most places require 60 credits of criminal justice before being alloweed to take test.

Also, almost ALL police departments now have a residency requirement, typically within 10 air miles.

You are somewhat correct except there is no common sense test which there should be. Now any college grad, with the highest IQ possible can score perfect on a Police exam and have absolutely 0 common sense. Psych test is a waste because many pass it who are certifiably nuts and you can be fit as a fiddle pass the agility test and then spend the rest of your career getting bigger uniforms because your pants don't fit. And Bethlehem does not have any residency requirement, you can live in California and as long as you got to work on time it is ok.

When I graduated from the academy, on my first shift, the Sgt. told me "now almost everything you learned in the academy you can toss out the window". He was right. It all comes down to common sense and "street" smarts.You can be a walking law dictionary, but that means sh** if you can't communicate on "their" level.

So you have tried it?

I don't know...I am in pretty damn good shape and I have been a cop for ammost 7 years. I haven't punched a fridge, killed anybody, committed insurance fraud. I guess I know how the minorities feel now. A racist attack on my people...should I rant and rave about it now? Should I tell you how you are keeping me down by making your comments. The way I see it, you can think what you want. I can't wait to stop you for speeding LMAO

And most of the tests are standard. The entrance exam is one of a few types of civil service exam..the psych test is standard..and most oral board questions are very similar. As far as fitness tests, most smaller boroughs employ recent academy graduates who have just recently finished and are still in shape..but what do I know? I have only been a cop for seven years and taken the tests a few times.
