  • Does anyone know if the treadmill test was removed from all locations or only the El Segundo location?

      I know they were looking into removing it from the process

  • Hey guys. I’m new here. I just got a few quick questions. I was in the process of finding a job for the mean time. Do I update my BI if I do find one? Did you guys wear a suit and tie for the jail tour and ride along?

    Thanks in advance

      Yes, you would want to update you BI if you got a new job during the process.

      As for the jail tour I wore slacks/dress shoes and a black polo (tucked in with belt) , there were a few people in a full suit.

      For the ride along I wore the same thing but black boots instead of the dress shoes.

      Got it. Thanks!

  • Has anyone taken the Medical testing at the Long Beach location lately and can confirm whether or not the treadmill test is still being administered? I see some people saying that it has been removed from testing and just looking for any insight as I have my medical tests on Feb 6th.

      I took my medical there on the 6th and I did take the treadmill test.

      As far as the rest- basic physical, blood work, EKG, color blind test, hearing test...

      Caliboy if you don't mind me asking what did the color blind test consist of? was it the color circles with the numbers? thanks!

      It is a book that has shapes and you have to trace them out with your finger.

      Like mentioned above this was at Long Beach, I can not speak for other locations and not sure they all administer the same test.

  • Just got an email for 450 consultation. I'm in the IE area, anyone else local in 450 who wants message me so we can exchange info.

  • What’s up, I’m new here. Has anyone had to retake their psych evaluation? I took mine a few weeks ago and called and found out that I didn’t pass but I’m not sure why and they didn’t say why either. The person doing my evaluation was a different person than stated and I felt like she was judging me the whole time. Anyone have a good experience with retaking the psych?

      Did they say you could retake it? I thought if we fail we have to wait a year to retake it, I could be mistaken however.

      My friend had to retake it but unfortunately also failed the second attempt

  • Hello all, my background investigator told me she is about to submit my file and I was wondering how long it took for you guys to hear back after it was submitted. I’m hoping to make it into 451 assuming that it would begin in the beginning of April, what do you guys think? Thanks in advance.

      If all goes well you might be looking at 452. It takes a bout 2-3 weeks to be scheduled for your psych evaluation and it is scheduled about 2 weeks out. Then you still have your medical exam. So most likely May but hey it can be moved up.

  • For the people that have gotten an academy date. Did they tell you to notify your employer?

      When he met the second psychologist they notified him what the issues were the first time around

  • I just got a call saying I’m in a Class #449!

      Wonder why the short notice!

  • Raul, so he didn’t even really get to redo the psych evaluation?

      He did and also failed the second time they notified him by email the reasons why

  • Is that the norm? To give someone a second shot at psych? I’ve never heard of it unless you appeal

      Yeah there’s an appeal process and then they let you retest. It’s just a bunch of paperwork honestly. I’m not very good at interviews and kinda bombed the interview. I’m brushing up on my interviewing and hopefully can pass the second time around.

      Copy that, best of luck!

  • What did your guys’ process timeline look like? Also, did you guys get an official notification when your BI submitted your file? I was told by my BI she was about to submit it, but I’m wondering if I will get another notification when she actually does.

      Some people get notified the file is submitted, some do not.

  • Just waiting for consultation email. Because the treadmill was removed my pending reattempts were waived. Congrats on class 449 for being the most cardiovascular capable and the last class having to do the treadmill exam. Hopefully class 450 for me!

      They should have just stuck with the 1.5 mile run. What did they replace the treadmill test with?

    • armond111

      Martial_Law No replacement. The only physical testing now is during the VPAT

  • Got the call from medical that I’m cleared! Hopefully I will get a academy orientation date sometime next week. By the looks of it I will be in class 450. Anyone live near Rancho Cucamonga that is carpooling? If so message me! Thank you.

      I took my medical exam in October in el Segundo. I’ve been going back and forth with the dr on clearing me since then and he finally got some results to clear me.

      For those of you who live in/around Rancho, if you need any help during the process, I'll be happy to help you (especially for your prelim and critical scenario preparation).
