  • To anyone in the current or previous academy classes, how is the troop you are placed in determined? Is it solely based on performance and grades or is your living situation like wife and kids taken into account? Just looking for a little more information regarding that. Thanks.

      Your family life is not taken into account. Your grades determine placement.

      The Academy works out a ranking based on academic performance and the higher the grade the higher the preference in Troop placement. BUT this is not an official policy, but courtesy given to recruits. Albany makes the final determination and some classes (recent ones too) get very little say on where they go, but some classes get fairly close to home.

      That said, Troop A, L, T, and usually G are closed. E was closed 2 classes ago too. B/C/D are practically never closed.

  • Has anyone heard of a tentative start date for this upcoming academy class?

      I heard from a friend in the class currently that it may be August 12th but that was before these monetary issues arose. So who knows now.

    The Casio Men's G-Shock GD350-8 is a hot seller, it is more durable than Samsung Gear. best of all, it is less than $100 bucks.

      I didn't get anything else. I called the number that was on the letter to confirm that I was attending and haven't received anything else. When did you get the packet and what was in it?

      Why fall? Isn’t the medical usually a month before the start of the academy class?

      Yes but gov's office determines when Academy starts. Word is it got delayed a bit.

      If the 209th session does start in the fall, what would happen with the candidates like myself that processed last September; would they even bother having us all go through another process weekend since a majority of the class could be from September?

      Oneida44 I have no clue what will happen with the people that have already processed but aren't going to this next academy. I'm so bummed, that I had to defer from the current class about to graduate soon then I missed to cut off date to be active on the list to go in with the next class too. So now I'm not going in until 2020 after the next class graduates. Hoping for my sake and for many others that there isn't a hiring freeze, ive been hearing many rumors.

    Will it be a full class or did they cut the numbers?

      they need the numbers due to the high volume of people retiring, so I am guessing it will be a full class!

  • Medical complete, now just the next waiting period.

  • Medical went well today, great feeling getting fitted for all of their gear. Anyone hear anything about the start date? August 12th was the first date I was hearing but now it seems undecided.

        Im trying to figure out the same. Anybody know if there will be a second medical invite for this upcoming class?

    • nycnyspolice i believe they sent medicals to rank 4500 or 5000. There were 390 people at the medical on Saturday. They were saying should be a class of 250 for fall class. Doubt they will have a second medical for this class because of how many people they invited, but you never know.

        yea based on peoples ranks who said they got medical invites I believe they called up to 4900 or 5000. Someone on here said they had a rank of 49** and got an invite.

        Thank you for letting us know

    • You guys mention medical processing for up to 5,000 around. Now, is that for the immediately upcoming class? I’m rank 60## and I was told in the letter for my May processing weekend that it would be for a Winter 2020 academy. Assuming now this would be Spring, but does it still look possible for 60## to be in the academy after next, IE, winter/speing 2020?

        Yes. So we were told by the troopers at Medical that 390 people were at the Medical and the class would be for 250 for this immediate academy, so 140 will be left over for back fill and the next academy. So yes a rank of 6000 should theoretically be called in the next medical for the 2020 academy but nothing is ever guaranteed.

    • Has anyone heard of a potential start date for the fall 2019 academy class yet?

        Anything you hear will be 100% an unsubstantiated rumor at this point. They are trying for a Sept/Oct start.

        I also read on this forum that the next class may start on Aug 12, 2019. Last medicals are done about 2-4 weeks of a start of a new class. Good luck.

    • jaguarshark appreciate your response. Thanks.

      • I do have question regarding disqualification. My investigator did the house visit shortly after the 4th of July, everything seemed fine and I have not heard anything since. Since i haven't heard anything I am thinking the worst. So my question is, how long after the house visit do you know you have been DQd? I haven't received anything in the mail either.

          Stop overthinking! No news is good news and there is no time limit with anything that goes on in the process. He will contact you when he needs something if he doesn’t that means he doesn’t need anything. But your going to go crazy if you overthink things, just stay positive and wait patiently.
