    You are in Tier 2, which is good. It's not as good as Tier 1 was. And I'm not sure if there are any Tier 1 people around anymore, at least in our agency. I think they would have to have been hired prior to 1983 (going just from memory).

    State emplyees of other agencies are in either Tier 3 or 4, which have less generous pension plans.

      Civil Service lists are good for 4 years or till they are exhausted. Based on the current economy and the impending political future.... I expect this list will die of old age before it is used up. Beyond that... You better hope that Rudy wins or that Andrew Cuomo is more cop-friendly than his father was.

      I'd bet there are some dinosaurs left in Troop A or maybe even Troop B. I know when I finally get tired of crackheads and the interstate... I'm putting in for somewhere like SP Tupper Lake or SP Machias.

          I checked with the Comptroller's website. To be in Tier 1, you had be be hired prior to July 1, 1973. That would give you 36 years on the job now.

          I hope he's not still humping calls on the road.

          Probably some crusty old zone sergeant eh?

          • Do zone sergeants wear black uniforms?

            Edit: Looked it up and found out the answer to my question is no. Reason I asked is because I once saw a Trooper (at least I figure it was because he was behind a desk at a Troop) wearing a black uniform once and couldn't figure that one out. Do some Troopers wear a black uniform or do some Troops house LEOs from different organizations?

                Wow, that is surprising, but I still have hope this can change if (and that's a big if) an academy class happen this fall. I can't imagine there is a large amount of people left over from last September, and I think it's been discussed here that the turnout from the March processing was fairly weak. But realistically, no one really knows. I'm just itching to get my number called.

                • The K9 guy that I work with locally is always in black BDUs.

                  Though that doesn't throw me off nearly as much as watching a couple of MRT guys get out of a van wearing khaki pants and black polo shirts.

                    I am left over from last falls processing, I am in the 500's and I heard that when they called up candidates for the 197th they reached the 400's. So that being said, I have heard from my BI and recruiter that I should be in the next class.

                    I am sure that some of you Troopers that post hear reguarly are probably getting tired of us askin and talkin about when and if the next class will be. So many thanks to you for your help and patience with all us who desperately want to be one of you. Thanks.

                          yes, yes you are. but then lots of us from 197 are



                          To all of the prospective recruits out there, just keep holding on, flying straight, AND DON'T QUIT WHATEVER JOB YOU HAVE!! I am living proof (along with other on the board) that it can take a few years to get through the system. I took my entrance exam in Feb '04. I finally got through processing to the academy in APRIL '08 only to have the class size cut at the last minute and get left out. And then 4 months later find out they are throwing another class together last minute and join the 197th in DECEMBER of 08. It is worth the wait, this is the best job out there!

                          • I have a "decent" in at the academy so I will let all of you know anything I hear as soon as I hear it.. I remember the waiting game and it's the WORST part!

                              You are welcome, but no, we are not tired of it. When that happens, we'll just stop posting.

                              Frankly, we all want all of you to get hired, as we need the manpower. While I enjoy the weather in summer, the amont of SA is overwhelming us.

                                If you are itching, imagine us guys who got processed really fast for the last academy and then everything came to a screeching halt because of the state. We have already got a taste of forward progress and now we have to wait. You guys have just waited.
