    I just recently received a letter from NYS trooper and I'm really excited. Although I need to get in better shape I pray the PT don't kick my butt. During the process weekend what does the medical consist of. When they drug test is urine or hair? just curious I like to know things lol. Lastly only problem im afraid of is my license being suspended few times about 6 years ago will that be an issue. Thanks for any response.
    Cannot comment on the drug testing, but I worked with an investigator before moving out of NYS. The pre employment background is extremely thorough and they will most definitely ask about that. Not sure if it would be a DQ, but it will most likely depend on the circumstances surrounding the suspension.

        The drug test on processing weekend is urine and hair.

          Driving is a huge part of what we do on a daily basis. It is also a big part of the laws we enforce. The fact that your license was suspended, and the fact it happened more than once is no small thing. Is it the end of the line for you? I don't think so, but I don't make those calls. I can tell you this, you will definately have some explaining to do. My advice is this: own it! If you lie, omit, downplay, "forget" etc. good luck! Because youre going to need it.

            I'd be more concerned with your comment regarding hair vs urine. Does it matter? That's an odd question to be asking.....

            As for the license suspension, that is very subjective. It's all relative to your situation. Why was it suspended? Were you 16 and made some mistakes? Were you 23 and forgot to pay insurance? Have you straightened yourself out? I know when I went through my background for a local agency I had some credit card issues from my past when I lost income for a few months. The investigator asked a lot of questions about it and tried to understandd my situation. Having to pay my mortgage, car payment and feed my kid, I fell behind and had a credit card go into collections and then an actual judgement against me. That was 5 years ago and has been removed from my credit history because I paid it off. I paid what I could each month against it and it eventually was satisfied.

            Does this reflect poor character? That's up to the investigator. Because I didn't lie and explained my situation and more importantly, I rectified it by paying it off, I made myself look like I've matured. I don't think the NYSP are out to get us and look for reasons to make us look bad and fail the background, but rather they need to test our integrity and find out how we make things rigth after things go wrong, since things will go wrong in our future (it's called life).

            Hope this helps....

                    Is this for the 70% PAT in the academy as well? Or is someone only holding your feet for the 50 percentile?

                      When they test you, someone is always holding your feet.

                            Now it says not to wear contacts. Did you just wear glasses and bring them?
