    NYPD MOS to Deploy

    Quick question to anyone in the NYPD who may have been in a similar situation and what measures you took to resolve. Please PM me with any info you may not feel comfortable posting for whatever reason. Thanks.

    Here is my dilemma:

    I am currently enlisted in the Marine Reserve as well as being an active UMOS in the NYPD. My unit, stationed out of Delaware, I knew a deployment was going to happen in my first year or two being on the job, so i never transferred to a NY unit in hopes that I wouldn't be leaving my Marines to deploy without the same platoon sergeant they've had for the past year already. Regardless the deployment schedule looks like the following:

    May 2-4: Monthly Drill
    May 5-9: regular work with NYPD
    May 10-28: Annual Training/Pre mobilization staging @ Quantico
    May 28: Orders cut for Mobilization
    May 29-31: regular work with NYPD
    June 1: Mobilized to active duty

    The dilemma is quite simple, while I understand the process of dealing with the NYPD military and extended leave desk, this procedure is quite involved and time consuming. My timekeeper suggested doing all this before the AT (May 5-9) and than just being on indefinite leave until the deployment ends. While this would be the most convenient, the problem is that orders for said deployment won't be cut until AFTER the 3 week AT. Inherently this puts me in the predicament of needing to leave Delaware on Thursday the 28th with orders, drive back NYC, somehow get all the orders processed in 2 days, and arrive fully equipped and ready to deploy by June 1.

    This unfortunately also leaves me no time to say goodbye to family and friends and take care of personal affairs (ie moving belongings into storage, etc) since I am positive the NYPD will take up the majority of those 2 days (turning in gun and shield, getting new ID issued, etc)

    Help??:D

    Cut out the middle man (forum) and call the MELD @ 646 610-5513. They handle situations like yours all the time, its not new to them. Good Luck, be safe and Thanks you for your service.

    I hate to admit that you're most likely correct, I guess sometimes you just need to hear it from someone else? It is a frustrating situation, I just hope everything works out fine. Thanks again!

    I don't mean to sound like thats directed at you, more like I hate to hear that dealing with MELD is what I need to do. They took 2 months to finish putting my contract into the payroll system so the military leave days for drill showed up and my timekeeper could stop complaining. But such is the process of big organizations...

    But BAsher is 100% right. What you may hate hearing is the truth. The MELD desk handles this all the time. Your not the first with these issues and won't be the last. I suggest you talk to your CO/XO or whoever and explain the situation at the precinct. Tell them you need to GO To MELD to do paperwork and ask to switch a tour. Then get you butt down there and put a name with your face. They are a great group of folks selected to be there by the CoP Office. They will help you if you go there and lay out your options.

    You reserve command may need to write you a letter NOW stating certain things and you may need to use a vacation day or two so your not coming back for BS.
    -In God we trust. All others, put your hands on the car and don't move.

    I am sorry guys but what is MELD? I am getting out on my first contract in the Navy so I will still owe 4 years IRR (Inactive Ready Reserve). I am considering doing Navy Reserve or Coast Guard Reserve after instead of IRR. NYPD is the main road I want to take too.

    Do you get screwed/ screw other people in your dept. when you have get activated? Is doing reserves in the NYPD more of a headache? Would anyone recommend it, or reccomend against it?

    I just assumed from prior posts that it stood for "Military & Extended Leave Desk", a NYPD specific unit.

    I'd affiliate with a Navy Reserve unit if I were you. I went into the IRR from the Army Reserve, spending about 8 months at my new job before I got the nice little letter telling me I've got some sand box time coming up. Being Navy, you might be in the clear.
