    The main purpose is probably just to get everyone's hair sample and finger prints as this will screen out people who are not eligible thus saving the BG department time and resources. Heard through the grapevine that there is a June academy as well. Definitely can't hurt to bring it.
    Pure conjecture on my part, but if they're nearly full for March and are slow-cooking my application group for June, I'd be completely fine with it. I went into my first police academy in June of 1995, so there'd be a kind of synchronicity to that...

      Im unaware of the status for March. In any case I'm going to try to at least be cleared by March in the off chance there are spots available. If you are prior LE wouldn't a lateral academy be more convenient for you?

        I've been out too long. Though I was a lieutenant in Houston, it's hard for a new department to care after six years doing something else. The interviewers at my oral interview tried the same thing--they went directly over to the lateral academy representative when we got to my past work experience, but I think the final answer was that six years was just too darned long out of the game. I totally understand, and unlike a lot of officers, I loved the academy experience, so having it all over again isn't a bad thing for me.

        Any path that ends with my putting on an SFPD uniform every day and back into a car serving San Francisco--that's a good outcome no matter how I get there.

          I can respect that. Retrospectively the people that use this forum and engage other applicants seem to have great success in terms of academy selection. Hopefully everyone here has the opportunity to make either March or June as everyone seems very committed and has their head in the right place.

            MACO, I'll bring everything you listed juuuuuust in case. No reason for *me* to be the reason behind any delays in case I get moved up during the meeting.

            I do appreciate it!
            6253 I'm scheduled for same date & time as you. Hope to run into you there.

            • Though I'm still attending the group background meeting tomorrow morning, I just got the call from my newly-assigned Background Investigator, so it looks like I'm officially in the pipeline now.

              I got the list of documents I'll need to bring, etc.--and I'll be in his office on Thursday 2/9 for a few hours.

              Feels good to have someone reading my packet and getting that call. Onward!

                  Yep, I'm still supposed to attend the meeting tomorrow as normal. I was #4 on the list.

                      I wish I had some insight for you--I'm just taking each wave as it comes! See you tomorrow!

                          Better than I could have expected. I certainly hope the remainder of the process is as positive as this one was.

                              • Did anyone ask their BI's for a possible starting date on the March academy?
