NYPD Officers Dirty Dancing

Have you seen the Video yet of the NYPD Officers "Dirty Dancing"?

This video is a perfect example that you're always being watched and most likly receorded. I'm sure if these officers knew that they were on camera and they would end up on YouTube, they wouldn't have even thought about acting the way they do.

I will not pass judgement on these officers, but they went beyond the line that I would have drawn.

On this job espicasilly when working Downtown you have women come up to you and try to get pictures with you, wear your hat or dance with you. In those cases you just have to say "Sorry Ladies I can't"

So if you take anything from this, know you are always being watched!!

How to Become a Police Officer in the United States of America
Philip J Reed, on behalf of Westwood College

The requirements to become a police officer vary from country to country, and though there may be many similarities, it’s important to understand how to become a police officer and the steps necessary to do so based on your specific country’s required standards.

There are some differences state to state, but generally the minimum requirements to become a police officer in the United States include:
A high school diploma
Successful completion of a physical exam
Successful completion of a written exam
Minimum of 20 years old
Must be a citizen of the USA

In most states prospective officers also need to pass a psychological evaluation, as well as a drug test and possible lie detector test. Given the responsibilities of police officers and the power that comes with the badge, these do not seem to be unreasonable requirements by any stretch of the imagination.

As stated, these are the minimum requirements. Most law enforcement agencies will require additional education which may include a criminal justice degree or other certification. There are many specialties within law enforcement and multiple educational programs geared to those specialties, so it’s important to have a clear idea of what position within the agency you wish to hold.

Once you actually become a police officer in the United States, your training and education don’t end. You can expect rigorous ongoing training and throughout your entire law enforcement career.

In your quest of learning how to become a police officer you will also need to understand the different agencies that currently work within the United States.

Some of these agencies include:
Sheriffs Department
United States Marshal Service
Federal Police
State Police
Regional/Municipal Police
Corrections Officers
US Customs and Border Protection
DEA (Drug enforcement agency)
ATF (Bureau of alcohol, firearms & tobacco)

The educational requirements will depend on the agency of choice though they will still require at least the above-listed minimum requirements.

The above article is meant to serve as a guide; depending upon your state of residency, specific requirements may vary. Be sure to do your research!

Authorities act on 'credible' threats to NYC, D.C.

Federal authorities investigated "specific, credible but unconfirmed" threats Thursday night involving possible plots to attack New York City and Washington around the 9/11 anniversary, the Department of Homeland Security said.

The threat involving possible bombings was shared with New York and Washington police.
The threat information was about three people who may have been dispatched to the U.S. to meet with associates to carry out the attacks, said a federal law enforcement official who was not authorized to speak publicly and asked not be identified.

President Obama was briefed about the matter Thursday morning and received updates during the day.
Department of Homeland Security spokesman Matt Chandler said documents recovered from the raid in May on Osama bin Laden's compound in Pakistan revealed al-Qaeda's interest to strike the U.S. on meaningful dates.

"In this instance, it's accurate that there is specific, credible but unconfirmed threat information," Chandler said. "As we always do before important dates like the anniversary of 9/11, we will undoubtedly get more reporting in the coming days."

New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg said the threat, while credible, was "not corroborated." He urged New Yorkers to go about their business as usual.

I know the Police will do everything in their power to keep everyone safe.
