  • Passed FL. State Exam!! Now to apply..Broward County?.....

    I Just found out that I passed my exam and will be applying now. I was thinking about applying for Broward County SO and wanted to find out if anyone is from that agency or knows about it. What are the odds of getting hired there vs. amount of people that apply.

    Any kind of help/advice would be good.

    with a proven track record, and experience.
    and last,,,,,19 yr & 20 yr old hamburger flippers, who bso seems to
    take a chance in hiring rather than the above.

    your chance: flip a coin thats the best answer....
    I been here 22 yrs and it still boggles my mind , how and why they do stuff
    in the employment, promotion and every sub catagory.

      ftlaudcop... you said it best. It amazes me some of the people you guys hire. I have seen people with NO experience get hired over laterals. I have seen people with no experience who are dumb as rocks get hired, while other people with no experience that at least have some brains not get hired. BSO does things a little backassed... IMHO.
      In law enforcement, the customer is ALWAYS wrong.

      In God we trust. Everyone else is run through NCIC.

      Sometimes there is justice. Sometimes there is just us.

      I'd rather be tried by 12 then carried by 6.

        Well I do not have any experience that's for sure, but I am bi-lingual and a female, so I'm hoping that will bump me up a notch.

          if you were black, they'd hire you in a second.

              Well I'm headed down there next week to do the prelim testing ie: swim test and physical agility tests.

              Hopefully I'll be posting my progress at attempting to get hired with BCSO!!

                Im in the process w/ Ft Lauderdale PD. Looking to enter the september academy at BCC. Its looking good - for now. Im not counting mu chickens before they hatch though.

                Topher: The swim test and agility test are not bad at all if you are in decent shape. Wear an undershirt that fits tight (or a dry fit shirt) and running pants for the swim. It will help alot. I accidentally wore Cargo pants and the last 10 yrds were beginning to get very rough.

                    topher, it is BSO, not BCSO How did you take the state exam without doing the prelim testing first? My understanding is you have to complete the academy to take the state exam, and you have to do the prelim testing to enter the academy. What academy did you go to? Why BSO, there are so many other agencies out there...

                      I went to the academy here in Tampa, FL. Hillsborough Community College.
                      I want to move to the East coast and I've been to Lauderdale and West Palm a bunch of times and I just like the area. I've heard good things about BSO.

                      I'm also applying at Ft.Lauderdale.

                          I still would like to come down, if it's meant to be for me to be there then it will happen. If not, there are other agencies.

                          Thanks for the heads up!!

                            ftlaud, the more I read your posts, the more I like ya.

                            Topher... I think anyone should apply at multiple agencies and take what is offered to them, but there are agencies in this area that are much better than BSO. Especially when it comes to pay, bennies, schedule etc. PM me if you want some more info. If you have your heart set on BSO, so be it. I used to have my heart set on them, until I found out more about them. Ever thought about PBSO?

                              Ok....you guys are starting to scare me. I have been looking at all of the agencies you guys are talking about (BSO, PBSO, FLPD). Is it really that bad down there? What are the major problems? Are the problems really any different than what you would find anywhere else? From the research I have done online they all seem to be pretty descent places to work....am I wrong? Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
