    • To those of us that are still waiting for their Triage's to start or those who have been called....... Has anyone actually called the SF Backgrounds department to find out if they were still eligible or going to be called soon for Triage? I have been waiting since I turned my Background packet in February. I did re-apply a few weeks ago but was still hoping to get called for my original E128-4 process instead of having to start over. If someone did call, did they give you any info? I am afraid that if I call I would then get my packet pushed aside even further for calling.... All the departments are, "don't call us, we'll call you."
      Thanks,
      Mike

        Mike I am also part of your group. I got my call from BI about 2 wks ago and last week I met face to face w/ my BI. Its a patience game. Stay strong. If they were to DQ you or say no go you would have received some sort of notification.

            I agree, "don't call us, we'll call you". I would not suggest calling, it's always hurry up and wait. Patience is key, but I know it can be frustrating not knowing. I'm in the same boat. I have been through this with smaller agencies and it's always the same. Seems like an eternity while you wait. The mind goes in all kids of directions. Try to stay focused and positive. I found that applying with other agencies helps while you wait. It's good not to have your eggs in one basket. The Bay Area has a lot of agencies (when they are actually hiring). When one says, "thanks, but no thanks"...move on to the next. Don't give up! CHP is opening recruitment on 1/3/13. They are only taking apps for a few days. Worth a try.

              I don't think there's anything wrong with giving the Background unit a call to find out what your status is. They don't like 3rd party callers (don't have mom or your girlfriend/boyfriend call for you), do it yourself. The BI's are mostly very accomodating and they understand that you're anxious to hear any news they can give you.
              This does not mean that you should call every day or once a week, but a phone call to see where you are in the process will not hurt you or get your folder pushed aside. It actually shows that you're interested and motivated.

                      • williampenn, are you the special liason that's been designated by the department to handle these forums? you seem closer to the background process than an applicant. i also dont imagine most current officers care enough, know enough, about the background process to be so helpful.

                          I'm no special anything, especially no liason; and I didn't know that I was "handling these forums." I was just participating and passing along information that I thought would be useful to most people interested in what's going on with this process.

                            • Yeah,
                              Got my email this morning to schedule my Triage appointment for Tuesday, January 22. I've been waiting a long time to get the ball rolling. Merry Christmas to me. I hope to see some other well deserved people on here get the email too.
                              Good luck,

                              Mike
