  • Anyone else in the process for Oakland BART PD?

    I got word yesterday that I passed my oral and written assessment. Looking forward to getting backgrounds started. Scheduled a ride-along this Friday in down town Oakland. Just curious if anyone else on here is also in the process? I was told after my oral by one of the BI's that they now need 20 recruits.

    Are you in the process for Oakland PD or BART PD? There is no Oakland BART PD. BART spans most for the central bay area, not just Oakland.

      He might mean Bart PD at the Lake Merritt station (in Oakland). The only thing Oakland has done for the past few years is lay off cops and hire, then fire recruits.

        Yes I am in the process with them also. I was starting to get nervous about the interview since mine was at the end of August. I was relieved when i got my email yesterday.

          Damn that's a long wait to find out if you passed or not, mine was on Sept. 17th. Are you currently LEO?

            No im not. I worked in a non sworn position for almost 4 years but was laid off in feb if 09. And yes it was a long time to wait. But i felt really good walking out of my interview.

                    Congrats and good luck in the process. It should be smooth sailing from here...

                        Do you guys have LE experience? I don't get it, I scored 63 on the POST, aced my oral and written (best one I've ever done), have a clean background, BS in criminal justice, and currently work in a non-sworn position for a city. This is getting frustrating.

                          That is the market we're in, Jeff. 100's of applicants for a single job. Many with more than a BA, written scores that are just as good, 90's on the oral board plus veteran points and a foreign language. By the way, what do you consider an 'ace oral score'?
