  • Berkeley PD hiring?

    It looks like Berkeley PD is taking apps - recruits and laterals. Anyone know if they are just building a list or actually looking to hire? They have testing dates listed as well. I put my app in. Anyone know what the PAT is like? Where do they do academy?

    Considering that about 8 of us on here applied, tested and interviewed back in August, only to be told that they are on a hiring freeze. I think they may be just building their list back up.
    I am not afraid... I was born to do this.

      Hiring freeze, huh? Good to know. I applied last year as well. went all the way through to the interview...received Rank 1...Then NOTHING!

      I just received an email yesterday stating the my eligibility period was extended 12 more months. Interested to see if/when this happens.

        I also received the e-mail about the extension. I'm hoping to see some movement.
        SFPD also just sent me a letter telling me to retake my PHQ.

              Did you apply to the June AND April announcements? I contacted HR and they said that I did NOT need to retake any portion of the testing and that I would retain my Cat 1 standing until Aug 2012. So I never applied to the April posting.

                I am not an applicant for the Berkley job but I've got to ask is the BPD as PC as most LEO would expect it to be? The city council seems absolutely horrific for anybody who wants to do proactive enforcement. But with that said, I know times are tough and people are looking for work anywhere they can get it. I was just wondering.

                    Crutch, I called back in Jan. to find out what was going on, and HR told me to reapply when it opened up again... I called again last week, they told me the same as they told you... =/ At least I'm in Cat 1 as well. =D
