Is he going to keep the other job also?

He may be trained, but I bet Farina trained him as a part time officer, meaning that they didn't send him to the full time academy and he never took the physical abilities. Just guessing as that is what most small towns are doing.

Ive noticed that, they pretty well have who they are going to hire already chosen and the interveiw process is just a matter of formality. My own son-in-law who has been to the police academy and has a criminal justice degree has been passed over in these small towns and they end up hiring someone they already knew with no experience or training at all.
My husband put in for a job at the sherriffs dept, he has had 30 years of military training and quite and extensive resume of jobs in the criminal justice feild but was passed over for a 20 year old with no experience at all. Ive always said it isnt what you know, but who you know.

I do agree, obviously since it is a union issue, they do have a say whether or not the communities want to say it.

But your husband and son might also consider Wayne County, and Jefferson County, I have read both online are in the process of looking for applicants for correction as well as deputy applicants.
