• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

That's not so bad. The military is tougher...ya can't leave and unless you go military LE, there's no cars to drift. I saw no one doing push ups with the TI's feet propped on MY back while he read my mail to the squadron...69, 70, 71, 72, 73, 74... -Rod-

I don't doubt it, but the CHP academy is tough in it's own ways. There were many former Marines who flat out said boot camp and their subsequent time in the Corps was not as bad as their 27 weeks with CHP.

Some of that looks like fun and games, but it's not. It's 110% from the time 90 cadets stand there in their suits until 27 weeks later when 60-80 of them graduate. Any time is PT time for the PT staff (guys in the blue sweats with gold stripes) and it's always learning time.

I was there...CTC I-05, or 3 classes before the one in the video. I left before completion, which was a very hard thing to do. Yes, I'll be going back. Once it's in your blood, the only acceptable solution is to complete it. BTW, the video is neat to see but in no way does the training program justice...there are so many other things going on (many of which aren't open for public discussion) that no video like that would show it all.

I have taken ttraining from the CHP's firearms man Lou Chiodo also a former Marine like myself. That hort lil guy could kick anyones butt. All you have to do is look at his walk, his callosed knuckes from all the bag work and you know.

Another that I have had the chance to train with is NH's Massad Ayoob.

As a former civilian instructor at the Virginia State Police academy, I've been able to witness much of this style of training first hand. I have to agree with Stateboy ... the stresses involved in this training can not be described until you see it (or take part in it) first hand.

Initial in July/August.

Secondary in undisclosed location in February, lets just say -40 in the sun was a good day.

Damn I dont miss that.

Good video too.

They got it tough, but I dont think I could ever say anything was more in depth or as mentally exhausting as my training.

Then agian I havent ever done the CHP training so I cant say for sure.

But I suspect it aint as bad as 16 weeks of intensive training.

Psst he only put his shoes on your back, hell I got to wear his "personal pack" ya know the one filled with wet sand. 35, 36, 37, face in the dirt, 35, 36 , 37.....

Ah the good ol days.
