    Hi all. I’ve searched high and low and cannot find much regarding medical disqualifications based on a mental illness. I know they want a letter from your doctor but if you have been stable on your meds, is it truly a disqualifying factor? Anyone have any experience with this?

If you promote, you will do more of the same but slightly more difficult cases.
    That sucks, sorry to hear that. I've previously met a few SD/CA officers and they all complained of high turn-over and big caseloads. I think last I checked, of the 3 officers I knew there, 2 have moved on elsewhere. Also sucks because my district has done joint training with other agencies. State/local folks, USMS, etc. I guess mileage varies on this front too.

    It was less than three months for me. I also had multiple people in my FLETC class that had been on the job for well over a year. I haven’t paid that much attention to our new hires’ timelines. My district has always been very considerate of family situations and such in asking officers if they’re ready. There’s no hard and fast rule.

    FLETC is an enormous investment in a new hire. Some districts wait to see how new hires are adjusting; FLETC smurfs are a reflection of their district and chief - you’ll get the lectures (a guy from my class is the subject of one such story).

    If I were you, I’d get in, find out district expectations as soon as possible, check FLETC openings and go from there.

    Thank you for the advice, teamhoyt! Any idea how long after starting I should expect to attend FLETC?

    Catch FLETC right away in spring. July and August suited up at the outdoor range is a beast and the a/c in the mat rooms leaves a bit to be desired. Avoid budget crunch and inclement weather periods if possible, or you may have a shortened program (again spring is the finest time to enjoy Chuckstown). Be eager but show a willingness to learn. Feds operate different from any state/county I’m aware of.

    If you don’t have a tailored suit, go get one

    The medical process was a very thorough physical exam that also included vision and hearing screenings, blood work, TB test, and a medical history review.

    My medical cleared in 21 days and I received a call right away, directly from the Chief. It came in the middle of the government shutdown though, so we decided to delay my start date to avoid the uncertainty that would come with that. That’s why I’m just now starting. Otherwise, it would’ve only been 21 days for me.
