    Hello everybody! When should I expect my esoph notice?
    Does rank make much of a difference, or specifically does it make a difference in the border division?

      I received my ESOPH notice about 5 days after my test results. however, I was in the Valley Division. Good luck in the process, patience is key!

  • Hello everyone. So I called CHU last week and was informed that I cleared Psych. Congrats to everyone that has cleared everything and good luck to everyone currently in the process. So far its been a little over a year since I did the written and physical testing so yes, it does take a while.

    Does anyone have any information on the next academy class?

        Wow you got your psych results pretty fast. I took mine 10/26 and haven't heard anything. Called CHU at the two week mark and they said nothing yet. Just hoping I'm not waiting all this time to get DQd

        Nice! I was hoping for this to happen to me! I cleared psych on 9/28 so it could happen! Regardless, good luck and I’ll in most cases be seeing you come March!

    • Very Nice! Congrats


    • Hello everyone! It has been very informative looking at other people's timeline so finally posting my timeline. Now just dreading the passing of the psych oral since you can't really prepare for it besides being completely honest and trustworthy. Hopefully medical today will be fine and after clearing, can set a date for the psych oral!

      • I just took my CVSA today and was told the December class has been filled. She let me know the next class would be in Feb/March.

        I see it usually takes a month or so to hear back after the CVSA. Is this done by email or a call from your BI?

        • Quick question, how is the PAT scored? Is it pass/fail?

        • Quick update on my progress. Background orientation is next week.

          Southern Division

          Also had a question I was hoping someone who has been through the entire process could answer. I plan on being clean shaven and in a business suit for orientation and every time I meet with a B.I. (first interview, CVSA, etc). Were you in a suit at every step in the process? And what about for the home visit and psych evaluations? What's the recommended dress code?

            Im currently in backgrounds in Southern Division and have already completed the CVSA. Best advice I can give you is always be clean shaven and always wear a suit and tie. For my first interview at my house, I wasn't sure about the attire but went with a suit and tie. It is also okay to ask what the attire is before an event.

            I’m heading up in December and I’m out of southern. Always be in a suit and clean shaven. Although I didn’t have a home visit I would have been in a suit then too. It’s always better to be over dressed than under dressed.

            But like the other guy said it’s not a problem if you ask the investigator what the dress attire should be but most likely they’ll always tell you business attire.

            P.s pretty sure you know this but I saw some guys do this at my orientation so I’ll say it anyway, don’t just wear slacks and a button up. Buy an actual suit or they’ll chew you out for it. And make sure your car has no violations (front license plate, no front tinted windows, tags up to date) cause they will inspect during your background orientation.

            If you have any other specific questions feel free to message me.

            Hope that helps. Good luck!

            CHPTP Etor91 Thank you both for the responses. Very helpful. And yup, they were pretty clear about their dress code standards on the days of the PAT and written test. Some people showed up in wife beaters, with full heads of hair and beards, in jeans, etc. One individual even showed up in a tie dye shirt, you can imagine how it went for that poor soul. So I was definitely going to be in a suit and tie but was not as sure about the home visit and the appointments where a BI would not be present. Thanks again, and good luck in the academy Etor91 !

        • Good Luck everyone coming in December! We can’t wait for you guys to get here! The academy is tough, study, workout, and sleep while you can now because you won’t get much sleep once you are here. STAY MOTIVATED!!!


          • Good evening applicants and future cadets. It seem as if everyone is making good progress with their process. I apologize for the late replies to some of your messages. I’ve been extremely busy but I’ll be on here for the next couple of days to answer any of your questions. I’m extremely proud of each and one of you. Feel free to send me a PM about the hiring process and life at the academy. Good luck to everyone and happy holidays!

                Lol sorry, I responded in a new post. It’s below this.
                Any other questions feel free to ask.

            • -arrive in a suit(make sure it’s a suit)
              -make sure your vehicle has no violations.
              -take something to write on and write with.
              -they’ll go over the process and your background packet(what to add or change)
              -signing paperwork
              -you’re given about a week to resubmit your packet and change or add anything if you had to. If not, you resubmit the same thing.
              -you may ask any questions you have to your investigator.

              P.S make sure you have your original documents you uploaded like your diploma, transcripts, passport etc. because at your first initial interview you’ll need to present them to your investigator.

              Any other questions feel free to ask!

              Hope that helps! Good luck!
