    I just wanted to get some input, I am 21 years old and was arrested for a DUI in 2006 and received SIS probabtion or it's called Diversion in some states. I did the PBA for LAPD and was flagged but I called and they decided to allow me to continue with expedited testing. My question is am I wasting my time by flying out to test or do I have a chance thanks

    when you get to the medical stage, you'll have to run on a treadmill....if you're out of shape, it'll get you pretty winded.

    i thought maybe we'd have to do push-ups and pulls-ups so i had been working on that for that past weeks at the gym lol... got my pqe results, i got a 85.. initial background review is sep. 2nd, gotta start filling out my packet...

    True. I was hoping that they would have higher standards.

    Does LAPD use the standard P.O.S.T. test??? If not, is it multiple choice, spelling, reading comp, map reading and or CLOZE??? Is the essay portion, how many questions do you answer??? Do you find out your results that day/evening??? Sorry for all the questions!!!

    I'd also like to add my knowledge of CAPs, that I learned earlier this week, from the officer who runs the program at Pierce Collge. CAPs is run strictly to start indoctrinating you to the academy rigors. Be prepared to have instructors get on your case and "motivate" you if necessary. Expect to learn basic marching orders and have to stand at attention in the presence of an officer until told otherwise, just like at the academy. CAPs also looks great to the interview board if they present you with the oft-asked question, "What have you done to prepare yourself to be a police officer?"

    On your first day, show up ready to work out, but do not be shocked when they tell you that you need to show up in a PT uniform the following week. The workout includes lots of running and the calisthenics that are performed during the academy. It's a great program that you can start as soon as you have proof of passing the written exam. More info, like times and locations, can be found at www.joinlapd.org

    On a personal note, I plan on taking LAPD's written on 9/4 and will be attending CAPs as soon as I am able to up until the day I am put through an academy. Good luck to all in the process already.

    For those of you in the process, ask about CAPS program, they work out academy style twice a week, it'll get you up to speed on what they expect in the academy. I didn't do CAPS and when I got to the academy I got a rude awakening on how out of shape i really was, made it through but to this day 3 years later I still wish I had done CAPS while in the hiring/waiting process.

    I had the same thing with the PQE, I got a 75 and I have a college degree.... go figure!
    LOL! Hey, sad thing is I took it last year and got an 85. I wrote my @$* off this time. Oh well, better than a fail I guess
