    I can't speak specifically for departments in the San Diego area, but from my expierence the average the hiring time for most departments in about six months or more. If I were you and you want to get into Law Enforcement as soon as you get out I would start testing as soon as possible.

        What department(s)?

        SDPD is badly in need of officers. But as fast as you can go, I don't think you could get their process finished much faster than about 4 months.

        The Sheriff's Department needs lots of deputies, too. You might be able to get through their process a little bit faster... you can start filling out the PHS now and be ready to turn it in right after the orientation.

        The local departments, probably the usual 6 months or so. I don't think anyone else (Escondido, Chula Vista, El Cajon, Oceanside, Carlsbad, etc.) is really badly in need, since they've been recruiting fron SDPD due to pension problems.

          Im out in May 07 so thats eight months, so are guys saying i could start now? What if I pass all the test and I still have time left in the military? Would I have to retest or would they hold a spot for me once I'm discharged?

          I'm stationed out of coronado. I'm looking for SDPD or Chula vista

              Well, the pension system will be fixed at some point.

              And there's no reason why you couldn't do a year or two with SDPD and then lateral to another agency.

              travel_light: You would probably be best served by calling and asking. I'm sure that they would be willing to send a new officer to "the next academy".

                NYPD's gonna be at MCRD to test.

                I think your test results are good for a while too? So even though you are still in, you could test as soon as possible. Not 100% sure on this though, so you might want to ask the department's recruiters.

                  The pension system is only one of many issues, there are much bigger issues involved.

                    Do tell! I'm not thinking about reapplying with SDPD, but travel_light will probably appreciate as much info as possible!

                      Apply now--- and apply everywhere. If you do get offered a job and an academy start date before you EAS, you can request an early discharge. In all cases I know of, the military member was granted the early release.
                      If you won't stand behind our troops, PLEASE, feel free to stand in front of them.
