    Why would applicants OR agencies would want lower/relaxed hiring standards/practices ?

    Thousands apply every year to various LE vacancies. Of those thousands, only a few hundred are actually qualified and of those few hundred, even less are actually hired. Why would one want to join an agency where they lower standards? Sure it would be easy (easier) for the motivated and qualified applicant to get in but then you run into the issue of those who can't tie their shoes, spell their names, or touch their toes getting in as well. When judging an agency's hiring practices and standards, stop and think about the man or woman who will be deemed your equal as a fellow employee.
    Have you ever come across a current officer and wonder how in the hell did he get in ?!

      Sadly yes. Same goes for pretty much every (LE) agency. Just imagine if they lowered the standards even further... lol

              • Just got the email saying my NOR for the VBT/SI was found eligible!

                Now I really get to sweat waiting for the poly...whenever that will be.

                  Lol i have my interview Wednesday too. At JFK as well.

                  The reason why I was delayed was because I just came back from being deployed for a year with the Army. But they seem to be moving with the process a little quickly.

                      At 1:15 PM in one of the cargo buildings. Will definitely get there earlier to make sure I don't get lost. JFK is kind of confusing to get around. I had my PFT1 in JFK as well.
