  • Misfit16, I'd been in Background since January. My b.i. submitted my file on July 1st. Just got my conditional offer today.

    • I received an email saying I have an appointment with psychological on 8/5, followed by medical on 8/12. I thought it was medical first then psychological. Can anyone give me an insight to what goes on in psychological. Thanks.

        Raptor. Yes you should get a follow up email shortly with directions to access the appointment online. Sometimes the interview and testing is done on the same day, but depends and how quickly you finish the testing

        Yes, they usually do like 2 days before the actual date. That’s when I received my email of a date change. And they’ll let you know the program you need on your device, you should make sure it’s up and running on your computer ahead of time.

      • Can anyone please help me what the treadmill test consist of. Is it a pass/fail if you don't finish, or is it just to make sure your heart can take it. Like a stress test.

          Lol no problem. I too was practicing for that thing everyday and found it very difficult. They got rid of it shortly before my medical evaluation thank God.

      • Talked to my buddy within the department and he told me that there are 350 candidates standing by for an academy right now. All of them have completed everything, just waiting for the consultation email. Including me haha. I completed everything beginning of April. Been waiting ever since.

            I’m on the same boat as you, I called today and they said that there’s a possibility that we may have to complete the process again.

            Dang, seriously! I hope that’s not the case. I’m starting the process with a local PD and maybe that will workout prior to LASD’s academy but even then, I hope I don’t have to do it all over again.

            Remember that sometimes Academy Consultations/Captain Interview appointments are given in advance of up to 3/2 months prior to the start of academy. Application requirements for DST are also changing and we may be screened again to ensure we meet those qualifications.

        • Guys, when this fiscal year ends for LASD? Is it in December ?

            Fiscal year just started July 1st. It won’t end till July 2021.

        • Update, so I talked to personnel today. For those of us that have been done since February / March, etc. we won’t need to redo our background if the next academy is in 2021. All we will have to do is get a new conditional and probably just fingerprints. That’s not speculation, it’s straight from the personnel
          department.

            Negative, just fingerprint and receive a new conditional.

              Wow, sorry to hear for those that were scheduled to start this month. Reserve academy is still scheduled for next month as far as I know. Hopefully that one doesn’t also get postponed.

          • When your conditional offer is expired, you have to do an update for background in order to get a new conditional offer. This updated background could takes 1-3 months or more depends on how change in your background. If Medical and Psy are expired, you have to retake the new one. All of these only valid for one year from the initial day. I don’t know If LASD could has an exception for this or not because it’s not your fault. It’s about the budget issue. Right now the list already has 350 people for upcoming academy. I believe from now on to April, the list could be increased to 450 or more. This means about 4-5 academy classes are already filled. What’s happened if LASD still not get full fund next year? Another 4 academy classes for fiscal year 21-22 ,that means some of us could
            be waiting for 2 years from today. My advice is don’t stress about this, get a backup plan or apply with another agency. They can use your file at LASD to expedite your process there. I spoke to a recruiter at OCSD and he said that really help for him if I apply to OCSD. He will contact LASD to have my information. The process could be as fast as a month. Wish you guys best of luck!

              Your right on the money, when I worked at backgrounds we would get refresher files from time to time of guys that recycled through the academy. People, there are other departments out there. The worst thing anyone can do is be married to the idea of one department and that's it.

              Do background investigators use files from other agencies to assist them, yes. Its used more to corabarate information. OCSD is not just gonna come and look at your completed LASD file and call it a day. They still have to conduct their own investigation. What speeds up background investigations is normally your cooperation with being as thorough as possible and having less baggage than others makes it smooth. A lot of it comes down to the individual background investigator's case load and work ethic.
