    I'm actually a little curious right now cause I have friends who are currently going through applications with some positions down in SD: What agencies are currently in a freeze down there? Is it everyone or just some?

    It would be foolhardy to layoff police officers. With these rough economic times, officers should see their workload increase (211s, 10851s, etc).
    Do you think there are going to be many hiring freezes in the state? Also is the city of LA's budget seperate from the budget crisis supposedly occuring in CA now?

    Look carefully at the exam announcement for the agency you are applying with. It should spell out whether having the academy under your belt will help.

    Many limit testing to laterals and post qualified (been through an academy) only. In this case, you won't even be admitted to the testing process without having attended the academy.

    Other agencies open their testing to everyone, but maintain two eligible lists, one for laterals/post qualified and the other for entry level. Traditionally, they hire first from the lateral/post qualified list and once it has been exhausted, go to the entry level list.

    These first two are most common in California.

    The third type of agency opens testing up to everyone and may or may not award points for you having been through an academy. Often this is because they insist on sending you through their own academy, irrespective of your previous experience and training.

    I wouldn't say that you'd be given priority.

    It will, however, show that you have a true desire to be a police officer and that you're not one of these run-of-the-mill applicants looking for an "easy" paycheck.

    If you have the time and money to put yourself through, it can only help your chances...

    just know too, that if you do get picked up, they'll more than likely put you through their academy, regardless.

    Applicant Question ....

    I've been reading how many agencies are either freezing or slowing down the process due to the worsening economy.

    My question is this : while putting yourself through the academy does not gaurantee a job, will agencies look at you or give you a priority before an entry level applicant ? My intention is to process with various agencies however, I have also decided to put myself through Rio or Fullerton late next year.

    Thanks...
