The author of the original post was a copOkay I thought when you wrote that "your agency would not let you do what he did" that you were talking about you, sorry. Many state police and state highway patrol department academies will not accept officers from other departments, most will only train their own officers, a good number will accept recruits from other state law enforcement agencies like state college campus police, state railroad police, state mental health police and state park police within that state itself. There are few exceptions to that where a small number of state police and state highway patrol academies will accept officers from any department within that state itself. Some large cities do too, every one else attends the regional academies.
