    I'm not a BI, but I stayed at a Holiday Inn Express last night!

    Anyway, I think they take the names you give them and then ask those people if there is anyone else they can talk to that also knows you. They are going to try to get away from the names you gave them, because they know you are going to give them only people who say nice things about you.

    There have to be other people in your life who have met you and would like to help you in any way they could. Here's a list I came up with off the top of my head:

    The human resources person where you work
    Your clergyman (or other people at your place of worship)
    Family friends (friends of your parents)
    Neighbors/former neighbors
    The clerk at the grocery store you frequent
    Former grade school/high school teachers
    Your attorney
    Your physician
    Your boss
    Your former boss
    Your landlord (former landlord)
    Your significant other (SO)
    Your SO's parents
    Your mechanic

    I think BIs don't necessarily want people who know your blood type, but just want to find out from people with whom you come into day-to-day contact who can make general observations like your attitude, your demeanor, your personality, etc.

    Does SDSO want any 6 references or do they want 3 friends and 3 co-workers? San Diego PD wants 10 references (5 friends and 5 co-workers). Also do they specify that you need to know them for 2 years or is it 5 years? Why don't you get the remaining two you need from work. You could probably even use a supervisor. Oh yeah, what's the essay they want you to write for the PHS. I just took the test last Wednesday.
