  • I've met with my BI twice now, but was referred to scheduling unit and actually received the call. I told them (MHC) I would rather have my background completed before I accept the offer, to which they were fine with. The last time I met with my BI, he had some questions concerning my previous employer dates to which I answered.

    I guess the only concern that I have, is that a previous sales job told one of my BI'S that I was "terminated" which was not the case. I was moving from California to Colorado and gave them a 3 week notice so I could train up the guy who would be taking my position. (Manager of sales for a fitness club) Well 2 days before the end of the pay period, they told me I was ok and not to come in. Turned out they didnt pay me my commissions for that pay period and processed me as a termination. (pretty crappy thing to do) Anyways he asked me about the "termination" which I then told him what had occurred.

    I ended up taking unemployment as they decided not to pay me out my bonus after staying to help train my replacement. I had the same issue arise with my local Sheriff Department that I currently work for, but they understood. I am hoping this is not an issue that will decide my file.


    Any suggestions would help.



    Also last question. Can new officers work overtime? I would be taking a giant pay cut for this position and would need to make up for it with OT. Does anyone know if that is allowed?

      I've heard that after fletc, you have to complete 37 weeks of training which gives you weekdays on and weekends off. Not sure if they will allow a rookie to work OT with that being said.

        I'm also from Texas and applied for Midwest 14-2. I took my poly last year in May and passed. I was told my results would be forwarded to PSD for review. So, I shouldn't have to take it again. We'll see how that goes and if it helps speed the process. I'm still waiting on my qualifications on CASS.

                    Depends on the region I think . plus I don't think there is set rule when it comes to that depending on the need/ background... It is all about supply and demand ...

                        I got my results. I passed the poly. I was told during my poly in May that I passed, and later emailed IA to find out if I offically did and they said yes. My results from May 2014 are being forwarded to my BI. My poly was for the 14-1 announcement but I dropped out little after and now my results are being applied to the 14-3 announcement I'm currently in.

                          What was your time frame between VBT and poly?

                                My background is not completed and I go to Academy in 2 days. They make it noted that the job offer is only contigent based on the completion of your background. Depends on if the BI has their stuff together and doesnt miss anything. My BI is still calling me to complete stuff.
