      Nothing here but as far as I know, COC only host two classes a year and STARS just started two classes in December. My guess is BC will be the next spot.

      Around $2k for everything

  • Is the Pre-Academy Consultation a pen and paper event? Or just your ID?

  • Do we get to take home the county issued firearm during the academy? Can we conceal carry it while in academy?

      Take the firearm home I believe so. Conceal? No way man. Not until you're a LEO and carry through LEOSA.

      I heard we take home our firearm but it’s empty . I could be wrong so don’t quote me on that

  • You are responsible for your gun while you are in the academy. Your instructors will tell you what you can and can't do with your firearm while your in the academy. Under no circumstances are you allowed to conceal carry it until you are a fully sworn peace officer.

      There are two ways you can legally CCW in CA.....

      1) have peace officer authority (830.1 CPC ect)

      2) Have a CCW....which you will not get in LA County

      You do not have peace officer status until you graduate and are employed by an agency....and you will not get a CCW in LA County

      • Just got off the phone with the medical department.
        I had my medical on January 8th at the El Segundo location.
        they said I’m cleared from medical ! Now just have to wait for the county to let me know my academy date/consultation date. I’m sure it’ll be for March class 450!

          I had my consultation yesterday aswell and most likely they will have the classed filled towards the end of the month. Some recruits lived far and they were told that if they were to be. accommodated it would probably be 1 or two recruits and they would be told 1-2 days before the class starts

      • Just got my Pre academy consultation for Wednesday January 22nd at 3pm for class 449!!!

          Congrats ! Possibly class 449 or 450 for me as I received a phone call from LB medical facility that almost all candidates who went there including myself has to complete the drug screening portion. Apparently they missed that portion. Other than that I’m cleared.

          Thank you thank you. I can’t believe it’s finally here. I’ve been in this since NOVEMBER 2018! Trust the process. But the real process begins now.

      • Just wondering if anyone stated they had a major medical condition in the past? Was it an issue?

        • for the last stage of the treadmill test do you guys take long or short strides, and do you stay more on your toes or run and plant your entire foot? During the third stage should I walk to conserve energy or run, or does it matter? the test is just so hard for me right now

            Caliboy does your legs and butt start burning and feel like its gonna melt off? whats your height and weight? I just fail to believe I am incapable of doing the test even after a month of training and im only 200lbs and 6'1

            I am 5'11 180 pounds, but was doing this fine at 200 pounds about 6 months ago.

            My calves/hamstrings started to get fatigue around the last minute.

            I took the test on the 13th. I’m 5’11 205 and I passed. I walked the first 3 stages and nice jog for the last stage. It gets kinda tuff and it does start to burn during the last minute or so but you just have to try to push through it and remember what you’re doing it for

            I’m 6’4” at 240lbs. It’s a stress test intended to stress out your body. As (djones11) mentioned the biggest tip is to remember why you are there. Your body pain is temporary. I walked the first 2 stages then power walked the 3rd stage & took it home on the 4th stage. It was not a walk in the park. Keep pushing ! Good luck !

          I have it on a flash drive, but I have to ask........are you watching it purely for entertainment, or are you looking for insight into the academy experience? Things have changed, and there's a lot of editing, as expected, with stuff made for television.

              Carrje not sure. I took protein until the day before my medical.

          • Any Lancaster or Palmdale people want to exchange info for class 449 I know they said we’d get a roster but figured why not get a head start on a carpool list.
