Nothing new.

9/11!9/11!9/11!9/11!9/11!9/11! Heroes!Heroes!Heroes!Heroes!Heroes! We put our lives on the line!We put our lives on the line!We put our lives on the line!We put our lives on the line!

It's a high paying jobs program for Italians and Irish on the PO level and a political patronage department in the managements ranks.

There's so much waste and corruption among the city/state agencies it's better not to dwell on it too much. Too many NY'ers have an interest in keeping the system the way it is (work for the city /have family working for the city) and the political class doesn't want to initiate reforms because it doesn't serve them any good.

The port authority police has similar power as the MTA police force. These such police agencies are semi police forces. The PA has full police powers in NYS and NJ, however they are a private police force. They do not have to answer for accountability in front of a civil service or a civilian review board such as the NYPD. I had an opportunity to bes part of the recent port authority police class, but was rejected in the last minute. The port authority was initially supposed to hire 250 applicants, but then reduced it to 125. By time the academy started, the PA only hired 100 canidadtes. By time the academy ended, the PA only had about 80 candidates left. 80 graduates, lol. The port Authority like the MTA will never improve the NYC transporation area and will continue to get worse over time. I was just told that it friwas a blessing that the PA didn't hire me. BUt for some of my friends in Law enforcement, they would rather go to PA or MTA police departments because gigs and details are not as complicated as NYPD.

Not as complicated? What does that even mean?

The pay is better and the work is easier. lol The NYPD became a stepping stone to the PAPD so the NYPD started to refused to release candidate records some years ago.

Lately the port authority are taking nypd officers again. I should know I was there at the port authority hiring process. Nypd cops were going through the process. However nypd cops will have to go through the academy all over again to be recertified as an officer again.

Gigs and details are much easier to come by in the NYPD and any large agency versus the smaller agencies due to higher turnover. After 5 years in the city most cops are either in a specialty unit or making Sergeant, in the PAPD or MTA you're still a rookie at that point. Yes the money is good but the advancement and career variety is not there.

Make more now doing something I like so luckily things turned out well. Pension will never be as good as the public sector but if Trump keeps juicing the market, it might not be half bad.

The NYPD and FDNY haven't abused and utterly raped the events of 9/11? I'm under no illusion.
