  • Yes. Read through this forum until you find the timeline of some of your fellow applicants who have been in a waiting pattern for the last two years or so.

    Okay so how long should someone wait, after receiving an email from backgrounds stating that an investigator has been assigned, before calling backgrounds to find out what's the status.

    I received an email about a month ago stating that my BI was assigned. I waited two weeks then emailed her to introduce myself. The email was returned stating the email address I used was incorrect. I also did a reply to all on the email I received from backgrounds (BI email was on there as a cc) and that too was returned. I waited another two weeks, now a month later, and am tempted to call to see if the BI is aware of me at all. But I don't want to Jump the gun.

    Any recommendations?

      Roger. I had the feeling that there was nothing to worry about. Just needed some assurance. Thank you

        • I still haven't been scheduled for a Oral board. I have already completed writing and physical in June/July. Is this normal?

          • Ken- Nothing is normal when in this process. As many have advised me in the past, just ride it out, stay out of trouble and no new is good news.

                I hope I hear something soon. I turned my packet in about 2 months ago and have not heard any news about a general meeting. A few days ago I received a general e-mail asking me to submit a "still interested or not" submission. I am very well aware that no news is good news and patience is key but we all are eager to keep moving at a fast pace. I have been patient and it sucks not doing what I used to do and having to do something else until I get hired by this department. But I am still patiently waiting... I miss the streets but I guess that is what happens when you move and leave your job. Thanks for keeping me posted I am having faith for the January academy.

                • From the time I submitted my packet to the general meeting was 4 months for me (I am from NJ). Patience is important in any police hiring process. I already met with my investigator and I believe he mailed out reference forms. I am nervous too but there is nothing we can really do but wait.

                  • Hello all. I am on the E130-1 list. My background packet was submitted in mid July. To this day I haven't received any notification that I have been assigned a BI. The emails that I have sent to the background unit, the responses I get are the same we have received your packet and if we need anything from you we will let you know. I did get the email on August 1 saying that I am still eligible and on September 25 I got an email saying that I have reached the civil service eligible list. In the email it said I have til October 2 to respond to say that I am still interested which of course I am and responded. From everyone's experience thus far can someone help me out here to determine where I am at in this process. Thank you.

                            What is the background meeting about? I read a couple different comments but they are all from a few years back. My background interview is next Wednesday.
