I Went through the academy in 09. The county police officers that came in to teach us are an absolute joke, and are very uneducated. Every other department knows that theyre just a waste of money and other than the forensic units and bomb squads and swat teams they are honestly useless. I wish i had something better to say about them but I honestly dont. They make way too much to do almost nothing on patrol. They all knew someone to get their jobs.

The County Police and the Sheriff are both lazy-ass do-nothings! They should combine both mickey mouse forces, lay-off half of them and use constables or mall security cops who would do as much or better!!!

County Police officers this year will have over 28 officers and maybe more making over $100,000 this year 2012.Not bad for patroling North & South park. Some topping out at $180,000. Chief Moffatt has done nothing to crub Overtime pay.. he is to busy getting all his friends and family Jobs in the county..Time to shake up the department of just get rid of it..

They also patrol the airports, and provide support services to many county suburban police departments. Overtime has been a serious problem for years, however, and is particularly problematic as it is manipulated to inflate pension payments.

Yea they are a joke. I went to that joke of an academy also. Those guys are a waste and couldnt get jobs elsewhere. They obviously knew someone to get those jobs. They are uneducated and naive when it comes to real police work. The academy is a real sham; we had all of the answers for each test throughout the academy and nobody even studied. The PT is an even bigger jokel you don;t have to participate if you don't want to haha. I watched guys just piss and moan about their ankle or knee while the rest of us ran laps. Those are probably the future county policemen.

Why is it that the County Police are the only Major Police department NOT to require any College? City, Mt Lebo, Peters Twp, PA State police, North Hills, AG's office, DA's office, Any of these department you MUST have a College Degree to be hired, But not the County Police... Why?? Because they can hire their Funkies and Relatives or anyone they want..

Putz? Proving my point buddy. Real professional. Obviously you're somehow a part of the ACPD the way you defend them. The department is a joke and every poster on here agrees. End of story.

Gee, let's see if I follow you: if a group of anonymous whiners and police wannabes says it's so, then, surely, it must be so? Yea, PUTZ is certainly the correct characterization of your sorry azz!

Out of 67 counties in Pa only 1 has County Police.. Yes, Allegheny is the ONLY County to have a County Police Force..They are not needed..

Actually, since Allegheny County is the only second class county, as Philly is the only first class county, and these two are the only urban counties of over a million in population, they are qualitatively different than the other seven smaller population classes. Do you have any point of real substance to make?

Second Class County has nothing to do with having a Sheriffs office and a County Police department, that could be merged into one unit. When you have the DAs office, State Police, Sheriffs, City of PGH, AGs Office, ATF task force, DEA task force,There are lots of Department out there that can take over the small amount og work the County Police do. I have heard of Investigations where one department was investigating a Criminal and so was another depertment and they knew nothing of the other one was doing.. You either eliminate the Sheriffs office or County Police and since its a State law that we must have a Sheriffs office the County Police should be disband..

Listen, numnutz, the point was that you can't offer the fact no other of the 67 counties have county police as a plausible reason for Allegheny County not having them. Only two urban counties have over a million in population, and the other has a combined city-county government, and is not comparable. And of the list of other forces you offer, numnutz, the ATF and DEA are federal agencies, and given that ludicrous error on your part, we can't be sure you're speaking of the state or federal AG's office, but either's involvement would be inappropriate, as would also the State Police. You offer too much uninformed bullsh*t to be taken seriously, fool!

Listen County Officer, There are ATF and DEA task forces that use local officers from the County and other departments in the County. You answered my problem and your not even smart enough to understand it.. We need a Combined Force of County Polce and Sheriffs..Just because you work out in North Park and Sleep on Duty doesnt mean us tax payers should pay $100,000 for you to do NO police work..Its only a matter of time and you County Police are gone.. I am working on your 8 year insurance retirement now also.. Incase people dont know the County Police can retire after 8 years and collect a hiding Insurance Policy ( that taxpayers pay) and full retirement after 10 years.. That is going to stop..

Task force, azzhat, as in a TEMPORARY inter-agency allocation of forces. Not a permanent solution to anything, obviously... except to you, ya' ignorant numnutz!
