Interesting. In 2007-08, Fox Reality channel had a short-lived show that followed L.A. Sheriff recruits from first day to graduation. It was called The Academy. You can watch it on Amazon streaming.

Great video. All the screaming in the beginning, I'd wish we had that too. Would have sorted my class out a little bit.

That was a good show too. I like the LAPD one also.

Great video. Too bad the Chicago P.D. Academy has turned in to H.S.with guns. There have been several complaints lodged and the powers that be have taken all that in your face stuff out of the curriculum because it's " intimidating". We have a warm n fuzzy feeling now. Embarassing to say the least. The Illinois State Police Academy is still first class. Great to see some bigger places are still professional.

Hmm, I suppose some would cry that this shows the "militarization" of the police.

I love the whole starts day 1 with a suit thing. Not how we do it up here but understandable.

And here I thought it was just SLEA. I've talked to people that went there, Cook Co, CPD, PTI and ISP. Every single one that went to ISP said it was a REAL Academy, unlike the others, which were basically kindergarten ("walk in a straight line, be quiet, write down what we tell you"). Oh well...

I went through Chicago in the 80s. It was the real deal. We had some first rate instructors. I didn't know it at the time but it was great...LOL.

Yup when I went though it was in your face. They tried to break you your first month and weed people out. Lots of lean and rest, it's of push-ups, formations and py. It was real good. Yes sir to every uniform hat walked by, salute go every ramking officer.

Fast forward to 2006 and beyond. Like was mentioned. Walk on right side of hallway, lounge in designated areas, stay quiet. Lucky to even get a hello.
