    Anyone from or familiar with the Middle District of PA? I applied there the end of last year, just looking for some insight if there's anyone on here from there.

    Yes, they will test depth perception and (if I remember correctly) color on your medical exam. Now, I don't believe they're quite disqualifiers though. My district has an officer who is red/green colorblind, so clearly it isn't a disqualifier for that. I actually had some difficulty on the depth perception portion of the test but re-tested with my own opthamologist and he found no issues and submitted documentation to support that. Was pretty easy. Essentially, you can contest just about anything that comes up on the medical exam with your own doctors or secondary opinions. A lot of officers get flagged for issues but can clear them up by a second opinion.

    Hope that helps some.

    I tried to fine vision guidelines online but they are vague (ie good distant viewing in 1 eye). Where are you getting your info Brownj21?

    I know a few officers in the district. Morale seems to be pretty good there. Upper management seems squared away as well. Not sure how they handle the step increases.

    Does anyone have any information about the Eastern District of KY? I was just selected for an interview for what seems to be a VERY competitive job selection. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    I believe the exact phrase they used was "meet with some of our judges," so I'm not sure if it's a panel or just like an informal sit-down in chambers. The lady from HR said they'll prepare an applicant packet to give to the chief judge to review, so it sounds like he may be one that takes an active role in the hiring process. If i end up getting called for the next round, I'll definitely make a post here about how they ended up doing it.

    Yeah, if it's judges as in plural, that is pretty different. Most districts will have an interview with the Chief Judge as a final step though. A panel of judges could be fairly intimidating, haha. Bring your A Game.
