      The minimum graphics card is like a GeForce 7300 and you have a GeForce 2. That’s like even more of a dinosaur than the card it’s asking for.

      You need a better graphics, preferably one that was released this decade because literally any card available right now would be better than what you have.

    NYPD Police Academy ? Hey guys i’m trying to build my carrier as a police officer in New York. I live in long island . Ive searched police academies around New York there was only one which is in manhattan. manhattan is a 4 hours drive for me. are there any other academies over at the east coast Riverhead or even long island ? if not does the police academy in manhattan gives you a place to stay ? and how many weeks does is take to finish the police academy ? and last question can i chose my location ? can i come back to long island after i finish academy and continue my carrier here as a police officer ? or do i have to work in places that NYPD sends me to ? because I have already started my life in long island and put so much to it and i dont want to start over again at manhattan,brooklyn or somewhere else.
    Thank You

      Erol,

      In New York, unlike some other states, you must be first hired by a law enforcement agency before going through an academy. Some other states, such as FL and PA allow you to “self-sponsor” yourself through a local municipal academy. The only academy in NYC is the NYPD academy, which recruits from the NYPD, MTA Police, and a bunch of other law enforcement agencies attend. There is also a peace officer academy for officers from agencies such as CUNY Public Library, HHC Police, DHS Police, TLC Inspectors, etc.

      On Long Island, Nassau and Suffolk both run their own academies, which provide training to NCPD and SCPD officers, the sheriff’s deputies (NCSD and SCSO), as well as officers from the local town and village agencies.

      Most law enforcement academies are not residential, with the exception of NYSP, NYSDEC, and NYSPP.. The academy generally takes around 5-6 months to complete.

      Choosing your duty location depends on the agency you are being hired with. If you are hired by the NYPD, you do not get to chose your precinct. If you are hired by the State Police, you will not get to choose your troop. Just to clarify things, you don’t have to live in NYC to be a NYPD officer.

      In terms of getting hired, the NYPD tests continuously, but the hiring process takes around 3 years from exam to academy. NCPD and SCPD are highly competitive, and offer tests every 5 years or so. The State Police test every 7 years or so.

  • Jake says:

    I Want To Be A Police Officer? I’m young. 23. After serving on the grand jury in my county, I have developed a great respect for law enforcement officers. My career as a carpenter is going nowhere. My local community college offers the state-mandated basic law enforcement training course. It is a year-long course and I would like to sign up for the fall. The problem is that i’m about a buck fifty overweight. Dropping weight has never been hard for me, keeping it off has. I was wondering if there were any officers out there who could give me some fitness/preparatory tips.

    • Curator says:

      There is a lot more you need to tell us or you need to evaluate for yourself in order to know if police work is right for you. Like where do you live? Depending on where you live, you may have to go into a private police academy, like you mentioned. I hate to say it, but in areas that do this, it isn’t always easy getting a job. You either have to beg or know the right person. And those police departments tend to be smaller, so kissing the right *ss is typically a requirement to making rank. You’re better off going to a major police department like New York City, Seattle, Atlanta or Baltimore, where you literally take a civil service exam. In NYC, if you pass the test (which is 70%), your test score automatically is ahead of those who even have 100% who took the test a month later. You get your list number 4 months later. Then over the next 3 years complete a medical, written and oral psychologicals, a physical and other steps.

      The only requirements are to have 60 credits (which you can do these easy only one credit online classes called FEMA classes and have them accredited by a community college in NYC. You can do up to about 35 FEMA credits, which run around $60-70 and the accrediting is $80 per credit). So long as you are willing to live in NYC or an eligible suburban county in Long Island or lower Upstate NY, you have an acceptable driving record and decent credit, the job is yours. By the time the process is over, 80-90% leave, for many reasons, including getting anxiety and not wanting the job, not getting the college credits before getting admitted into an academy, having an arrest record (although they do let many misdemeanors slide), having crappy credit or a crappy driving record, not passing the medical or psychs or simply moving out of NYC during the process and not wanting to return, which is common because NYC is very expensive. Some other people take better paying jobs, if they have degrees, or similar or slightly less paying city jobs like corrections, the fire department, sanitation and bus driving with the MTA.

      In Baltimore and Atlanta, the process is fast. They’d have you in within 3-6 months. Unlike NYC though, those cities do have high crime. The only people who think NYC is dangerous are narcissistic New Yorkers who need self importance to fulfill their egos, people who live in select crappy areas who never leave their world who think their world is the only world or people who watch too much Hollywood non-sense.

      Guess what too, NYPD offers a civil service exam to become sergeant, lieutenant and captain. And only captain requires a bachelor’s degree. Sergeants start at $85,000 and get in the low $100,000’s and lieutenants start in the $100,000’s and can make more than captains $150,000+ because of the amount of OT they get. Plus, it is pretty cool doing a job where there are so many TV shows about, and if you like the spotlight, it isn’t that hard to get to work in Manhattan because most cops don’t live there and would rather work closer to home.

      If you’re 150 pounds overweight, they’ll stick take you in the academy. In a private academy, they might be more likely to pass you since you’re paying them, but they also aren’t making an investment in you. With a PD like the NYPD, they doctor wouldn’t clear you if he didn’t think you had a chance. It might be unrealistic to lose all 150 pounds, but you can make a good dent into it. I’m about 30 pounds overweight and do not anticipate any problems. If you took the exam soon, you’d have 3+ years to get ready. The average NYPD cop starts at 26, which would be right on par for your age. If you don’t believe the easiness and simplicity of the process of the hiring process, just google it and look on Officer.com. It is common knowledge.

      The best thing you can do in terms of losing weight is cut out all soda and all sugary drinks or slowly ween yourself off of it. Stick with healthy things like mostly water. Cut out most to all junk food. And even if you did simple exercises like jogging, push ups, sit ups and swimming (these are the general fitness things you’ll encounter in an academy), you can lose weight little by little. Cops on average aren’t heavier or lighter than most and some get heavier as they get older, so not all of them can give you tips. The best advice comes from the same basic logic if you want to be healthy.

    DAMN NYC MTA! What Should I Do? I purchased a 30 day unlimited back in November. That stopped working after 2 weeks.

    Now again, I purchased a 30 day unlimited, and after 7 days it stopped working!! I am being screwed out of money and told that i have to wait 3-4 months even though purchases were made with credit card. Now tomorrow I have to mail it in and the thing is, I can’t afford to buy another metro card and am going to miss work unless I walk there (it is about a 4 mile walk and on top of that I am diabetic with neuropathy in both legs). I only work part time (few hours per day) so don’t judge me for not being able to throw away money on bus fares every minute. What should I do?
    And P.S.–it was the bus that damaged the card both times!

    Is there a way I can contact the news regarding this?

    • Curator says:

      Since you have other problems, are you working with a social worker to help you navigate the bureaucracy?
      If you do have a contact with a good social worker they should be able to help you out, Also have you applied for the half fare disability card? Sounds like you should qualify for that.
      Maybe you should contact the credit card company and see what they can do for you. Do it very politely
      Good Luck
