    • Good luck 208! Make sure to bring your ATO a coffee your first day for double points

    • Congratulations to all accepted!
      Can anyone advise what list number they got to to fill this class? I know several of the 1st processing group had to retake their physicals.
      I’m curious how many, if any from the September processing made it?
      Anyone know anyone from that Sept group that got in?

        Check the ranks of whoever got called for backfill, that should be the closest number.

          My93rx - If it’s your normal day off you have the holiday off. Normally it rotates so one platoon has Christmas for 3-4 years and then the other platoon has it. I just had my first Christmas off in 10 years of law enforcement...

          -Tommy-V - I never saw you reply to that other person that commented on that chain about hearing about having a 2019 exam also. They must be a troll to right?

      • Hey guys, for those whom already been in, I'm 20 on the backfill list. Is this reachable ?

          I think you have a shot. It's crazy how many people think this is the job for them just to realize on the first night/first week they were mistaken. We lost a handful of recruits our first night and around 10 at the 2 week mark. We only had about 35 to begin with though so With over 200, I'd guess the numbers could be higher. For us, they couldn't back fill after the 2 week mark.

          A conservative estimation is that 10% will drop within the backfill period. With the class being 250, I'd say it's very likely they'll reach you. Definitely be in PT shape.

          ^ That is what the recruiter told me way back in July as well, 2 weeks is the window to start and who ever is a backfill is for the next class. 3 friends of mine are also back fills some are in the 30’s and 40’s and i heard 4 people have already had to differ before the academy has even started. Stay ready!

          Great, thanks guys. I'm very close back to pt shape. I'm a little worried I won't be at the 50% from the surgrey but I was told that if I fail the test in the beginning that I just get my was chewed and go on remedial p.t

      • For the academy I realize we’re going to be responsible for getting haircuts on the weekends, for guys that have been through I’m curious if you just bought some clippers and had your girl cut your hair everytime your home?

          I’m getting a #2 or 3 all the way around, and like you said Bizzy, i’m going to keep it shaped up every weekend.

          Just buzz it to a #2 or lower and you can do it yourself in 5 minutes every weekend. Don't waste your time away from your friends and family going to a barber.

          Yeah I bought a pair of clippers by the time weekend comes the last thing were going to want to do is go wait and get a haircut for an hour, easier just to do it at your house and save some money also. I went 2 all around aswell.

          A 2 was too long for us. We were all zeros and skin.

      • A few tips on packing for the first weeks:

        1) bring air freshener. You're gonna stink from all the PT from morning PT and from the rest of the day. Staff lives in the dorms too and don't appreciate it smelling like a dumpster.

        2) Pack as light as possible, especially for the first 2 weeks.

        3) Alarm clock. Nothing fancy please.

        4) liquid soap/body wash. Your showers are going to be literally 1 minute long. Wet, soap, rinse, done. Next.

        5) bring a shaver, electric is fine.

        6) it's fun for the staff, but for your own good please just wear a black suit. Don't go slim fit. I assume you know why. Many go to WalMart and buy a $20 suit off their "George" brand. It's unlikely you'll ever want to wear this suit again.


        For some reason this surprises many recruits, but this organization and *especially* the Academy operates in a para-military environment. You will be addressed sternly and often angrily. You will be expected to march around, stand at attention, and say things loudly with a command voice. No looking around, no fidgeting, no questioning authority. Suck up the pain and learn as much as you can while attempting to stay positive. You must look out for each other and watch each other's back. The recruits you meet on night one will be your friends for the rest of your lives.

          Our recruiter told us don't worry about packing our wrestling shoes for the first week, she said it'll just be one more thing to weigh our bags down.

      • Congrats 208, can anyone who has gotten their duffle bag already advise what size or brand they got?

      • Don’t carpool for the first few weeks. It’s not good when your driver quits and you’re stuck trying to figure out a ride home Friday night.

          Now it's strictly prohibited until they say so. Still doesn't ensure 100% compliance tho.

      • Congrats to everyone who just graduated, and good luck to everybody who is going to the academy in the coming weeks!
        Just wondering if someone could give me some advice for processing?

        I'm ranked 62XX and got a 95.6 on the exam. Any idea when I'd be called for processing? (I assume the next upcoming processing weekend?)

        Any advice for processing other than the obvious like train for the pt test, or get a good nights rest?

        Thanks for the help and godspeed.

          Congrats to all those that made it to the academy, best of luck. To answer your question it’s a hit or miss there is no estimated timing to being called and a lot could change. My uncle he’s an investigator and he said I should get called sometime this year and I’m ranked 51**. So I’m not sure when you will be called but I’m just focusing in staying in shape because I don’t want to wait this long and finally get that letter and fail pt.

      • I was processed in September 2018....has anyone received anything regarding the next class ?

          I was told thru an email in late Aug 2018 that they may reach my rank for the Jan class and If I would consider the Jan instead of the July class. Reason for the Sept processing. I passed everything up to this point.

          I have not been called for the class yet...... as of today I have not hear or received any notification for the Jan class. I'm willing to start in Jan. I'm willing to start now....

          Thanks for the your input....Good luck to all that made the Jan 2019 class.

      • My rank was 24XX. I went to processing in September and medical dec 15th. I too did not receive a letter nor a call for backfill. Good luck to 208! Keeping my fingers crossed for 209 class.

          Sounds like we are on the same boat. Good luck.. So If do not get call for the Jan 2019 class....we should make the July 2019 class.

      • Food for thought for those on the back fill list. A friend of mine called member hiring unit today, He has already moved 7 spots closer to the front of the back fill list. So people have already had to differ. Depends on your spot on the list and how many people drop in the first 2 weeks will dictate your chance on making it in. Hope to see you guys there next Sunday!

        • On the money order for meals do we leave the address blank? It doesn't specify an address in the packet like it does for the uniform moner orders.
