    I'm glad you're doing ok! We had some pretty brutal heat over here as well. We hit 85-91 from Monday through Thursday.

    I've got some leads I'm pursuing. The form all agencies want is the 330 and some agencies require answers to three questions and I'm working on getting them finished up now.

    So are you back at work now?

    Oh your avatar again, just makes me giggle. So I did a ride along in Minnesota last night. That was sweet. Saw my first felony stop and first SFST in the field (compared to the hotel where we were getting fools drunk). It was pretty cool. I'm looking into POST reciprocity because the department I rode with will be looking for two new officers soon and would like another female. Still putting in apps for part time just to get some experience, what happened to all this money obami was supposed to be putting into LE?

    It's not going as quickly as I'd like but that's part of life I suppose. Apparently, our Governor decided to give public safety $30 million, but I've yet to see any pick up in hiring yet.

    Yeah, stress can do funny things. I was breaking out around scenario time and I am a little bit now from trying to find a job. I don't think I've ever had a break out in my life until now haha. We've got motorcycle racing this weekend so I'm hoping that will help me relax a little bit.

    And the Wal-Mart badge is sweet. I love it.

    I love your little icon thing. Every time you change it I just get a kick out of it. How's it going?

    So it sounds like I could be over in your neck of the woods from May 14-18, for the AMA races. I'll be in Pala Alto or Santa Rosa or some place over there. Are you going to check them out at all?

    Thanks for answering my question, long distance FTO :)

    Your tactical day sounds like it was a blast, I'm actually kind of jealous. We were trained to immediately find cover to reload or to move towards cover. It's going to be really weird the first time I hit the range not having my holster and I know my instinct is going to be step to side while releasing mag, pull from pouch, reload, reassess. I've replayed it so many times in my head and have practiced it so many times I know that's what I'm going to do, haha. It'll be interesting, that's for sure. The boyfriend wants to do another shooting contest since he's seen the my confidence with my gun go up immensely. I am worried that I'm going to forget my defense and arrest stuff. I've sort of been practicing but we didn't get the repetitions in like we did with firearms.

    Well, as of Friday, I officially have my certification in law enforcement for the state of WI!! Scenarios went by so quickly! I rocked the crap out of my domestic. We had a person in crisis and I had a LOT of fun with that. The deadly force taught me a lot about distance between myself and my subject. We used FX for the deadly force and as I was being stabbed in the shoulder, I shot twice and hit him in the chest. That's the only time I'll get away with "shooting" a DCI agent, haha. Now I'm working on my final report for the academy and I'm putting in applications next week since I'm no longer moving to MN.

    I took your advice about how to handle an individual who does NOT want to cooperate. In our domestic, the aggressor had found my partner's hot button and pushed it while calling her a nazi bitch cop. I wanted to talk to the woman when my partner had finish talking to her so I took over. The woman kept calling my partner a nazi cop and after talking to my partner, we decided to put her under arrest. As I told her to stand up, she argued and called my partner a Nazi bitch again. I was annoyed that my partner wasn't being more assertive and said something to the effect of "Alright, you need to stop calling my partner a Nazi cop. You've made it clear that you don't want us in your house and I get it, but here's the thing. We're trying to do our jobs, yeah you didn't call the cops, but someone was concerned enough to call us and we need to investigate this. Knowing that you don't want us here and that this isn't our house, we've both been trying to treat you with respect. The sooner you start cooperating with us, the sooner we can leave. If you continue to argue with us I'm going to be placing you under arrest for interferring with our investigation and for disorderly conduct. It's up to you."

    Our evaluator was impressed with me I guess. He had nothing bad to say about me in our evaluation which made me pretty happy since it was the first domestic I went to where I wasn't questioning everything I had done.

    Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner, had my final in firearms last week, passed, am now taser certified, had domestics last week, and building searches plus active shooter. This week we had our written final in Defense and Arrest and are finishing the physical stuff up tomorrow, testifying in court and Sexual Assault. I did my Sexual Assault scenario perfectly but totally blanked on my Domestic scenarios last night. I've never had a problem talking to people and I'm usually able to get info out of just about anyone, but last night, I just couldn't figure out what to ask. I can talk my way into a house when they don't want to let me in, I can calm them down and keep them calm, I just forget what the hell to ask, haha. I get the main questions but I kept forgetting the big one, "did this get physical?" We've got our final scenarios next week so if all goes well, I'll be certified as an LEO in the state of WI.

    I shot an 11.41 in our el presidente with 50 points out of 60. I was the second most accurate (to a 59) and I think I was 3rd or 4th in the class. My holster is a Safariland 295 (I think).

    Does your state not have a mandatory arrest for Domestics? And are they State vs. Blahblahblah or are they considered to be Civil there?

BTW, I don't pay for the cofee, it gets added to someone else's tab.
