      Troop NYC has been wide open since inception and practically 95% of all recruits who select it will get it. Whether that's a smart idea is a different story. Troop L will be closed past and present. The waiting list for L is about 2-3 years.

  • Hey guys, 43XX here, does anyone have an idea of when the next medical invitations will be going out?

      I think we will receive something soon, if there’s an academy planned right after this current one. From my experience from last medical I got the letter a month before the medical date and the date was two weeks before the graduation of the last academy.

    It is not hard at all to get NYC. Troop L you will not get out of the academy. I work with a guy who is from L who worked in NYC and absolutely hated it. I guess it’s all what you want though. Anywho, he now drives from L to upstate where I am and lives at the station during work days. Also when you make the move from NYC to L you won’t know much. Better to go from NYC to F or K and learn a bit more and then go to L. Or just don’t go to NYC at all if your end goal is L. Go to a troop where you’ll actually familiarize yourself with the job from guys that handle the road.

    That’s not a slight at anyone down there, just what I’ve seen from guys who have time on that I’ve worked with and what they have actually told me. You don’t want to go from NYC to L and not know how to handle a simple PIAA. Guys with twenty years on will eat you alive, especially down there haha.

    If you have any other questions feel free to message me.

      People actually enjoy working in Troop F and K. Troop NYC not so much.

      That said, years ago the closest you could get if you lived in NYC/LI was Poughkeepsie. That could potentially be a life changing commute. So the ability to work in NYC out of the Academy has its benefits.

      I agree jaguarshark. I love where I’m at in K. Listen to jaguar people! He helped me tremendously as I went through the process.

  • Has anyone heard any speculation as to what the next academy will reach in terms of rank? Or is the estimate still 6100?

    • Curious as to what law books are used in the academy. Can they be purchased somewhere online?

        Most likely NYS Penal/Criminal Procedural law and NYS V&T law book. You can buy them online, make sure to get the 2020 version. You can also buy a condensed guide to go with both the penal and V&t book which helps you to understand it better.

        We use the NY State Penal Law and Vehicle & Traffic Law books published by Looseleaf Law. The Academy gives you a copy in case you're wondering.

    • Rumor has it that final medical will be in early to mid march! I hope that is true, if so, letters could be sent out in the coming weeks.

      Rumors are dangerous... what’s the source of that one?

        Yeah I know they are. I won't directly say my source but I'm feeling hopeful and confident for us all. That's all I'm doing, keeping hope alive, keeping good spirits for both myself and many others because this is a long process that feels never ending.

    • thanks for this! Would your source also happen to know if a regular, full-sized class is anticipated? My greatest fear is that they’ll cut the amount of candidates going in to make room for future Park Police transfers. Thoughts?

        Hopefully it's a full size. Rank 49XX.

        Bryguyny94 I'm really hoping it would be a full size and my fingers are crossed that I make it in like many people said I should because of my rank number and that I processed almost 2 years ago and redid it all. We really never know until we know. Also I don't think the parks police merge will directly hinder this next class going in..just a thought. I also heard that the budget for next class is in "good standing" whatever that may mean.

    • For those of you that are currently in or have recently graduated the academy, what was the hardest/worst part for you? Conversely, what was the best?

        The hardest part is probably living in an uncomfortable cave away from home Sun to Fri.

    • Just checked my USPS informed delivery for today. Getting a letter from NYSP. Hopefully it’s the medical invite! At work until 4 so I won’t be able to check it. Anyone else on the informed delivery from USPS getting the letter today?

            Harleyriders yes I would like to think so. I am getting nervous though because someone on here from buffalo got a letter. 4-5pm today can't come quick enough! I am in Buffalo as well. Haven't got a weird feeling in my stomach about something for a while haha

        • What rank are you guys that received a medical invite? Just trying to get an idea of how high they went up the list.
          I’m 60xx so hoping they get to me
