My fiance applied with them last year and they have begun the process with him. I know that this maybe jumping the gun a little but if he is hired he’d have to go thru their academy. My question is Apd’s academy, is it strictly Mon-Fri or are weekends included too? Because if weekends are included and depending when/if he goes thru the academy, that might possibility endanger our wedding date…..

I can’t comment on the Atlanta PD, but my FI is a law enforcement officer (applied with two agencies in Canada) and both of the training schedules were just M-F for the class section, but for on the job training all shifts on any day were fair game.

@Paperbagprincess14: Yeah I’ve been doing my research and most academies are Mon-Fri but I remember him telling me that he sometimes had mandatory training on the wknds the last time he went thru the academy. We’re not getting married till December and really, what are the odds of him completing the process, and joining a full class for the academy and it affecting our wedding date which is the last Saturday before Christmas….I keep asking myself that. Guess I’m trying to convince myself. Uggh I wish he would have never told me any of this! 🙁
I could never ask him to choose between our wedding or a potential job if it came down to that, but the thought of us not getting married on that date scares me. We’ve done so much already.
