  • Bakersfield PD

    Their HR told me they'll start accepting apps May 31. Anyone have any info on them?

    Accepting apps for recruit, lateral, already POST qualified?

    And I have no info on the PD. Only time I've ever been to Bakersfield was to pass through it. Didn't seem like a bad place, then again how much of an impression can you get in ~half an hour.
    Press hard, you're making 4 copies.

        I've heard from people within the department, that they will be holding their own academy. Therefore, they will be accepting apps for cadets. Academy will start in august/september. Best of luck to you, if you are from out of the area.

          So then they'll be hiring more than just a few officers then?

            I relocated to Bakersfield from LA to be a state C/O. I love the BPD and Kern County Sheriff's. They are allowed to do their jobs and we have a DA that backs them. The area is conservative and generally supports LE.

              Those are always BIG positives.

                The academy starts in mid September. I heard they are looking to hire around 17.

                  I forgot to mention that they have take home cars too. If you live in Baks the cost of living is low. A very nice house can be picked up for 150,000 (and dropping).

                      Expect very stiff competition. I talked to a partner today that is going to apply. He was in the army; went to Iraq 3 or 4 times. He has been a Correctional Peace Officer for 5 years and is on our CRT team. He was slated to go to the CHP academy and a week or 2 before his start date he was stop-lossed. He is a very qualified candidate and there are many others in this area like him. He was told by a BPD officer that he was doing some joint training with that they are looking to pick up 27 recruits. Good luck to you!

                        It'd be nice to have some of those qualifications. But you won't get hired at all if you don't try, so good luck to all of them. At least they're not looking for one or two guys to hire.

                              I was waiting for Zam to jump in... =D
                              Other officer: Oh that's right, I forgot, you're God's gift to police work.
                              Me: At least someone recognizes it.

                              Turns out basic police work isn't so hard, you just have to leave the station.
