Day 1 Luggin' Boxes

Today was my first day as a City employee. After a few hours of filling out new hire paperwork, I was assigned to the property division (where all of the seized property like guns, drugs, vehicles, and cash is stored). It's an enormous warehouse in the south part of the city filled with evidence (physical and biological). It also houses all of the city's business supplies. It was like working in the supply room near the elevator except the room was bigger than the entire third floor of Wellesley and contained discharged tasers, handguns, and dozens of damaged motorcycle helmets. I got assigned to rearranging cases of video tapes, sorting miscellaneous police supplies, and coallating pages of training manuals; All this while wearing slacks and a dress shirt. Tomorrow I start my group physical conditioning (running and weight training at 06:00). Then it's off to the property yard for another day of grunt work. Next Monday (9/19) is the official start of the academy.
P.S. I now have an employee number, serial number, department number, job code, benefit code, and job title step number to remember.

Scott needs help moving and since you are a professional mover now I thought you could give him a call.

Its still better and definitely more interesting than sitting at a cubicle all day listening to Kobs bitch about the BRidge.

Congratulations! When you described the property room I thought about Reilly and what their "records" room must look like in this post-Katrina era.

Good luck with the PT. Thanks for the updates.
