    Interesting, seems like similar tension at Gilbert as well.

    Every city is going to have it's older parts. Never been to the city, though, so you know more than me. But it seems like it's a wealthy city.

    Gilbert and Chandler are both very similar agencies, with the exception that they have black and whites and Chandler does not... Both carry out bussiness quite the same.

    Well, its kinda hard to anwser that because I dont want to say anything bad... Chandler PD is a great agency, and I would fully suggest it to anyone looking for a professional agency to work for. Can the agency sometimes be a little TOO touchey-feelie? Yes, but that goes for any city agency I would imagine. Correct me if I am wrong guys! (& gals)

    It was my intentions to apply with PCSO if Chandler did not pick me up, but they did. One of my friends did goto PCSO, and loves it. They just bumped the starting pay to $500 less than Chandler, AND you get a black and white take home car. My friend was just issued a Charger with the 5.7 Hemi... I am quite jealous. Good luck!

    I went through the testing process with Chandler in March 06. I made it through the written, physical, oral, command, poly and BG only to be told that they had gotten about 8 lateral applicants in my cycle and had to take them. My BI was great as were all the officers I met in the process and I knew at that point that it was the agency I "wanted" to work for. My BI told me that they liked me and wanted to come back for the next test on May 20, 2006. I went back and tested and when I came to the dept two of the BI's were outside taking ID's and they both looked at me and said that they were glad I was back. Now for some reason I failed the report writing part of the test (something I have never failed in the tests I have taken) and could not really understand why at the moment.

    The next day my 22 year old little brother passed away in Sacramento, CA. My wife and I had to catch the first flight back home the next day at 6am. Had I passed I would have missed my oral board that day anyway so everything happens for a reason I guess. Once I felt like I was able to go back and retest mentally I was that much closer to completing my BS in Criminal Justice. I doubled up my classes and graduated a year early, now I am ready to go at it again hard, I test with PCSO on June 15th and if I make it through will be in the August 12th Acadamy at CARLOTA. My friend was picked up last week by them and starts June 10... I can't wait to get started again!!!

    Congrats hebr! I've been thinking of trying for an AZ department, and Chandler sounds like one of the top 5 to try for. Good luck with the process!
