    I was wondering how things are going for those of you who had their background intake in Feb and later. Are things moving fast or slow? My background intake is next week. Thanks and best of luck to you all.

    The PAT is pretty easy. I wouldn't worry about it. I had the interview in Jan and passed the interview in Feb. I had my background intake on the same month and haven't heard anything since.

    LASCHOOLCOP- Any Idea how many the Department is hiring?? Would appreciate iny info.

    I started with the LASPD in 1996. Like all school cops in those days, I started as a campus officer (SRO). After a couple years doing that, I went to patrol. I became an FTO and then a motor. At that time, I was pretty much given any assignment I wanted. Life was pretty good. The problem I had at first was the management. We had a chief that knew nothing about police work and was one step above a criminal himself. He did everything he could to hold the dept back.
    This had to be Weasley Mitchell!! I have stories about that worthless excuse for a security guard. I worked there from 1984-1990 (LASD Class 225). What you said about the department and starting a career there is true, and if you like the work and can put up withy some of the at-times non-sense, it is a good job. The inner-city experience is priceless if you lateral out-of-state.
    You said " You will always be inferior to the local agencies in the minds of your district admin and the general public." I know that was true then and looks like its much the same now.

    I applied in January and didn't get to take the written until April.

    I put my application in. I looked online for a written test date other then the dates in June but couldn't find them. I checked the upcoming test dates but it was blank. Anybody think they can help me out here? How did you guys get a written this early?

    That school does have underground parking and the lot is pretty big. There's also an outside parking lot that's decent size for those purposes. If you can't find parking in those lots, you can park on Maple or Los Angeles St. Just don't expect your car to be there when you get done. At minimum, the wheels will be missing.

    Just a little reminiscing, the spot of the current Santee HS was the old personnel office when I first hired on there. The PAT is pass/fail so like gangstas running from the po po, you don't have to be the fastest, just don't be the slowest.

    Good Luck

    Cool, thanks for the tip LAschoolCop. This PAT format is not the "fake it 'till you make it" format. I do well with the tests that involve the little O-courses with the saw horses and cones you set up in the parking lot, the body drags, wall jumps, and 500 yard runs.

    LAUSD does it like Santa Monica PD (without pull ups); the one with: pushups, sit-ups, 1.5 mile run, and 300 meter sprint.

    I am honestly not too optimistic about this one, but I wish best of luck to everyone who is going.
    You will do fine the times are pretty high and all you need to do is pass, not be the best one!

    I took the written today and passed. The questions are always funky and awkwardly worded. I am not looking forward to the PAT, does anyone know if you fail, can you retake it later? I know they let you take the written again 4 months later.
    Good job!! keep us all posted- it will take a while, so be patient- DO everything the District tells you ,and get any requests for BI in ON TIME! Bully and LAschoolCop can fill you in on minor issues or detials, if you ask properly!
