  • I applied to the most recent announcement back in January and saw I was recently "referred". Looking at various timelines on this site it seems to be a relatively fast process (compared to other agencies) but some people had "ELAC" which seems to be an expedited process. Will that be the case for only the May '16 applicants or should we expect that step going forward? Thanks!

          • My uncorrected vision just barely makes that cut off and it was suggested I might want to look into lasik. They are still continuing the process though. I have a consult this month to see about getting the procedure down. On the USES website it says they will not test your eyesight till 3 months post surgery. Does anyone know if by me getting lasik done, would my process be delayed till that 3 month period has passed? I am currently scheduled to take the polygraph tomorrow and they have already started my BI.

            • Polygraph 03/02/17. Received email today requesting medical history, eye examination, fitness level; all to be completed and returned within 48 hours. Is this next step, or included in polygraph phase of hiring process? I have not been informed of polygraph result thus far.

                Sounds a little bit different than what I was told. They said if I'm called to schedule medical then I passed poly. Giving information is a good sign, but not exactly sure in your case.

                For me they never explicitly said "you passed they poly," it was just understood when they scheduled my medical.

                    This was part of the email I received. I assume it is different by location. I hope it is a good sign.

                      Have you been scheduled for your medical?
                      I received the email today. I hope I am scheduled for medical soon!

                      • So I have a weird question. A few days before the January 2017 announcement came out I received a normal speeding ticket in Nevada. On the application I clicked that I have never been charged with a misdemeanor because I didn't think I had. But as I was going to pay my ticket I learned that all moving violations in Nevada are considered a misdemeanor. I'm from NY originally out here with the military, so I was unaware of this. Is there a way to update my application because my intent was not to mislead and will they automatically exclude me for speeding? My driving record has been clean for more than 7 years (since I was a teenager!)

                            I was told that I will continue on in the process because medical is after poly anyway. They said it wasn't a problem to get lasik done at this point.

                            Also for those of you that have done your poly how long was it? I've heard everything from 2 to 8 hrs.

                              Could be anywhere in between. Just depends on how things go once you get in there. I would plan on a full day and if you get out early, great!
