      Yes I will definitely carpool with anyone. We can take turns driving out there

  • Finally Finished my medical today. Passed my treadmill test. Training definitely helped. I run up hills and hiking trails regularly but, the test still got me sweating and breathing hard. Now its the waiting game like everyone else. I'm located in the IE so the north academy would be about an hour and 30 min drive for me if I get into the next academy.

      Same here finished my medical today, I’m in also in the IE so we can all definitely meet up and carpool, if we get into class 449

  • My buddy just Got out from his consultation, talked to him briefly. This is some information I got from him

    -must carpool
    ​​​​​- if you ask to defer be prepared to get told that before you applied you agreed to work in any area of LA county. They expect for you to re located. He told me some recruits are rented a apartment in Palmdale together and carpooling aswell.
    -got a list of what to buy uniforms boots(polishable) warbag watch etc.
    -they tell you can get a short haircut, but what I’ve heard from other recruits is they will grill you first day if you don’t shave it off completely( let’s keep it traditional)
    -confirmed it’s located in the north academy

    I’ll post up more info as soon as I get informed with more

      So stoked. I’ve been looking at places up there that I’ll move in to as soon as they let me know (Elba said next few days). Does anyone have Instagram? I’d like to see some familiar faces when we arrive. My insta is Luke_thorp

      Shave your head or a 0 with clippers! Tradition is huge! Don’t be that guy with a “fresh fade” because you will be noticed.!

  • Is it. Possibility class 450 will be at the north academy as well? Also where are the two other locations for the academy?

      • Can someone comment on the medical exam process? How long did it take? Do you show up in workout gear? Also, are you allowed to hold rails on treadmill test throught the first 6 minutes of test? Thank you guys, best of luck!

          count on it taking about 3 hours, yes come in workout gear. i flew through the urine, blood, ekg, hearing,sight exams but it took like an hour and a half just to get seen by the actual doctor and about half an hour waiting in the lobby. i think you can hold the rails the first stage or so, but dont count on it [its easy the first stages anyways]. goodluck!

          Took me about 3 hours in and out.
          Come in workout gear, and you are not allowed to touch the rails at all for any of the stages. If you touch or hold the rails, they will end the test.
          They will also end it, if your safety is at danger. For example loosing your balance on the treadmill, or if your pressure is too high

      • does LASD still administer the color vision exam?

            Break in your class b shoes ..and start adding layers of polish ...takes about 15 layers for them to start look acceptable

                  There is no Brass up north , and by that i mean there is no Lieutenants ,Captains ,Commanders walking around..so guess who runs the show..the D.I 'S , and they love tradition .

                  advise ? Lol .. start getting used to writing until your hand feels like its about to fall off , and for the males ,dont be that guy that shows up with hair . I know you can have hair now but trust me , buzz it off if you dont want the attention.

              • Does anyone have more info on a Psych retest? My buddy passed his medical the same day as me but has to retake the psych and was wondering if anyone can give me any info I can pass along to help him? His retest is in a week I believe.

                  Honestly its just a matter of being completely honest. There is a lot of repeat questions just worded differently, so they are intended to catch those who are trying to set a fake image about them self's. The Psych test is meant to evaluate the individual if they are mentally stable and if their personality is suitable for the job. So there is a lot of factors that come into play. The best of advice anyone can give, is just to be 100% honest on the questions. Just cause someone fails a Psych from one department, doesn't mean you cant pass another psych with a different department. Seen it happen many times.

                  Thank you for the reply but my question was aimed more for if anyone has done the retake because they’re asking for him to bring a resume and he’s meeting at a different location
