  • LAXPD stopped hiring for now, choices?

    Thanks for reading this.
    I have friends in the LAXPD and that is the only department I'd want to work in. I just received an email from their recruitment stating that they are not hiring as of last week. Isn't the hiring process the same as LAPD? Could I just go through the whole LAPD hiring process - physical, backround, etc., and wait until LAXPD is hiring again?

    Thanks for your time.

    You could go work for LAPD, then lateral to LAXPD.

    You could also put yourself through an academy. LAXPD *may* hire you academy complete. I know a guy that was hired academy complete at LAXPD...apparantly he didn't do that great a job and went bye bye though...

      what do you mean put myself through the academy? As in go through LAPD's academy then apply at LAXPD? And how long of a period has to go by to be eligible to lateral over?

      thanks again

        I dont think you can put yourself through the LAPD Academy.

        Rio Hondo, OCSO, Golden West, Fullerton College, etc. LAXPD may take you if you are academy complete. Meaning posess a POST academy certificate.

          so, to go through one of those academy's I would have to apply to that police agency, then when I've completed it, tell them "I'm going to lateral to LAXPD" ? Doesn't that mean I would waste that departments money on training me?

          If I do Torrance PD academy, would I then be able to lateral to LAXPD?
          How long must you be assigned to a department before you can transfer?

          Sorry for all the questions!

              Sorry Mike, I was alittle harsh... What they are trying to tell you is that you can pay your own way for a police academy. Once you complete the training, you will receive a certificate and you could be hired by LAXPD(if they hire "pre-service"). Completing the academy won't get you a job, it can only make you more desireable. It all depends on you and your background....

                LAXPD quit accepting other academies after they were sent to LAPD's academy I think. DOACOP could better answer that.

                As far as getting hired onto LAPD the lateral, you would have to complete LAPD probation first, then re-apply as a lateral at LAXPD, even though it is run by the city, same academy training and so forth you still have to do THE ENTIRE hiring process again, not the academy but backgrounds poly etc, sounds stupid right, it is but that's the big city for you. If you have done so little research on hiring processes then how do you know the LAWA is who you want to work for? You could get hired at another agency and love it, or get hired work another agency, think you want LAWA and lateral then hate it.

                If you don't know what LAWA is then you really have some research to do.

                  Many departments are going to be on a long term hiring freeze. You should apply to every place that is hiring. You cannot pick one place and hope for the best in this economy. I think it is going to be this way for a couple of years. You should apply to LAPD asap, if they are still hiring. I would not spend my own money to get trained on a hope and prayer that somebody is going to hire me in the future. Your certification very well may run out before you can get a job.

                    hankido, LA School PD doesn't go to LAPD academy due to the fact that it is a county agency not a city agency. Not sure why they don't go to LASD though.

                      Torrance PD sends their recruits to STARS (LASD) I believe.

                      If you put yourself through an academy, you are deemed "Academy Complete" or "Pre-service"

                      Once you have been employed by a law enforcement agency for a year, and receive your basic POST certificate, you can apply to other agencies as a "Lateral applicant."

                      DOACop would indeed be able to shed some light on LAXPD hiring standards right now. The guy I knew that went there academy-complete graduated from Riverside SO academy.

                        LA County Police is also (obviously) a county agency, and they also don't send their recruits to LASD's academies. They use Rio Hondo.

                          County PD uses both. I know they use LASD, and I have read on here that they use Rio as well. I do not know about school PD, but I was under the impression that they went to LASD as well.

                            Actually....we only use Rio Hondo. We got tired of LASD stealing all our people at graduation.
