  • Got my invite yesterday for April. I live within Troop A's boundaries.

    Comment


    • I wonder how many of these invites were sent out and how many are they planning to send to the academy. I remember my BI telling me it’s all about the state budget but one can only hope that our chances are a lot better right? Fingers crossed to everyone still hanging in there.

        It’s hard to say, but most of us have been waiting almost 5 years. Not many people are willing to wait that long for a career opportunity-maybe I’m wrong, but I was getting anxious of looking elsewhere because I wasn’t sure they were pulling off the 2013 list. They are now going to look for people who are healthy and have the least injury risk for the job.

    • A lot of people have moved on , 5 yrs is a LONG time, things change

        Wow.. a 5 year wait to get on.. just to wait another 5 years or so to get home... that's so discouraging, I'd have like 12 years OTJ with State Corrections. Not even worth it really

    • Which I think would seem to lead to the fact that we all have a high percentage of making it. VERY few would wait for a POSSIBILITY of a shot at a job. Those who have waited I would argue, want it more than anything.

          • If I live in the five boroughs and decide to take this job what are the chances of me being assigned in NYC? Or will I be placed anywhere?

            thanks in advance!

              In the last 2 classes, anybody who wanted NYC got it. Currently, any Trooper in the state that wanted NYC, is there now.

          • I hear they can put u anywhere I think you have to stay there for 3 yrs then request transfer, they rarely put fresh meat in nyc

            This is incorrect. Troop NYC is almost exclusively fresh meat and old guys boosting retirement OT before they leave. Unfortunately fresh meat is going to NYC at an alarming pace - so youll never get to actually learn to be a Trooper. I think they sent 75+ from the last class (don’t quote me on the #) directly down there. As far as assignments - after your done with FTO you can immediately put in a memo to transfer. Transfer time really depends on where you wanna go. NYC you can go almost immediately, Buffalo I think the wait time is still 4+ years (and that is to go to the undesirable locations - talked to some A guys recently and the good stations have Jr guys with 15+ years on) - with everywhere else somewhere in between.

              Hey NYCopper just curious but why do you say fresh meat in NYC never get to actually learn to be a Trooper? Also, I’m not sure if you’re OTJ but does getting a medical invitation almost solidify your attendance at the next academy? I know in other agencies, if you receive a medical invite you’re pretty much in. Idk but I’m still stressing

              I think it’s becuase nyc really doesn’t have a lot of open road like upstate does? , it’s more inner city ???

              58 or so from the 205th went to Troop NYC -- many involuntary. 32 from the 206th are going to NYC -- all voluntary. Troop A and Troop E was closed. So anybody from the Buffalo area weren't sent close to home at all.

              If you receive a medical invite -- if nothing crazy happens you should be in line for the class. I know of and heard of guys that get DQ-ed after the medical, but that's the exception and not the norm.

          • When will the 2017 exam results be released? Since you’re all getting invites from the 2013 list does that mean we have to wait until you get sent to academy to get our results?

              Until May, when the academy would start.

              If it’s delayed until May and processing for the next academy happens 6 months prior to a class then the next soonest academy will be in November?

              Well I'd say that's when the academy would end, then they need to reset and regroup. So looking at the history, this academy would start two months after the conclusion of the previous class. So if we graduate in NOV. I'd assume there wouldn't be another class until January of next year. I honestly have no idea if that's accurate but that's my assessment after browsing these forums for sometime. Some OTJ could be of more help!

              Breaks between Academies in the past few years have been as short as 1 week and as long as 4 months. Nobody but the Governor's office will actually know, so guessing about it is futile.

            Does this sound like good news for those looking to get into a spring academy? The numbers seem promising.
