    you get there, feign interest in the topics they are teaching for a few hours, do a little half hearted physical training, make a phone call to your family member who is command staff so they hook you up before you are out of the academy, have lunch, come back feign more interest in law enforcement, make a phone call to fleet letting them know your graduating in 8 months so that you have a car ready, take a break, act like you know alot about guns, get in your lexus or bmw and do 100 down 58 street trying to beat rush hour traffic.

    Can anyone advise what a true day at the academy is like? Or typically what the experience is like through the actual academy?

    You'll know when you're selected, that information isn't made public for a reason, it's part of the process, similar to basic military training, it's something that must be experienced for oneself

    MDPD Academy is not even 5% like a military basic training.

    Ok, so I assume maybe you've been through it recently or know someone who has? Is it too much to ask if you can elaborate? I apologize I'm green and although ex-military just would like a little more insight. I appreciate your initial response.

    I see reading comprehension isn't your strong suit because that wasn't my implication, my implication was that in and of itself the academy is something that has to be experienced by oneself
