    Also, I am from out of state (east coaster), does SFPD do any sort of expedited processing where I can perform multiple steps in fewer trips?
    You must have a California POST score of 42 or higher (highest is 77) on California POST letterhead dated within two years of 9-2-11. You would only submit this letter to be exempt from the Written Exam.

    It would be nice having another Marylander out here!!

    CA POST is not too much different than other POSTs. I am pretty sure that you will have to take the test again even though you have passed a POST test elsewhere.

    I know they used to have expedited hiring for out of state, that is a question you should ask them.

    No, you were right he did take over, albeit not for that long. He stepped down when he got elected DA and that's when Suhr got tapped.

    SFPD would be a decent gig with lots of opportunity, I am just a little weary of giving up my fed career status when the financial situation is so dire in California. Now is not the time to be a probationary officer in California.

Policy for laterals is 'one step above your current hourly wage' Great if you're in calpers already, and making 48 bucks an hour, but if you're from one of the other 49 states, and aren't making Suffolk County, NY style money, they'll start you at $41/hr ... entry level.

    CA basic waiver process seems lengthy, but at least that gets you a lateral academy of 8 weeks vs the 40 week newbie deal.

    Nice salary, too bad Gascon is the chief out there.
    Gascon is not the chief, Greg Suhr is. Gascon is the District Attorney of San Francisco County

    Last time I checked California was laying off police officers.... Might not be the best time to make a move to another agency.

    Yes. Google "California POST Basic Course Waiver."
