    It been 6 months for me , I applied in November , now just waiting to be assigned a background investigator . Hey, how long does usually take to be contacted after polygraph ? I'm putting all my hopes for this July academy but after reading others posts, I believe it all depends how fast they need us . But the new mayor she definitely want more cops in the streets of Oakland . It been a long process but will be the best career for all of us .


    had my poly In December and contacted by BI in March so about 2-3 months. Hope the best for you. chief has to approve the files to be cleared for academy after BI is done processing. then that's when challenge comes passing academy, BI sort of tried intimidate me with drop out rate/non-passing rate, but I'm not worried.

        Oh man bro that was far, but basically past benicia, Ca about 2 hours from san jose. But the psych is easy basically questions regarding a packet you fill out, nothing crazy. Interviewer is an awesome dude. I also received my medical the 26th of this month, and that is it for me. I wish you the best, it is a long process but feels so good once your here brother !!

I don't know why some people do drop from academy , but If that's the career you want and I want , I would put 100% commitment and the only way not to pass is if a recruit don't put 100% effort . we get show them we are here to succeed .
          Exactly positive attitude. Intimidation only goes so far I know people who have dropped out but due to injuries. It is cake, study and study more and you will be fine.

                Bro, relax lol. You're stressing yourself out for no reason. If you didn't lie on the poly, you will meet your BI soon

                    Don't take it the wrong way, I just don't want to see you stress yourself out. You have PM me and asked me this question a few times, and I gladly answered it for you. When it comes to this process, it's all about having the patience. I'm going on 5 months to hear back regarding to my backgrounds, trust me, it's getting to me too, but just gotta keep busy

                        Well, I've only used the GI Bill during school. You only receive funding if the school or training facility verifies your enrollment. I'm not sure if police academies are setup for that or even know what to do. You would have to contact the academy. That's a good question because I've used up the regular GI Bill but I still have the post 9/11 available for about 1 year.

                          I'm currently in the 172nd. OPD has no official VA rep. Another option I'm working on is going through Merritt College with the VA and have Merritt recognize the academy as a Parent school. It's been done in the past but I will post my findings out on here as they come up so future military vets can get a step ahead. Good luck on your process guys and study the radio codes!
