      The people are a lot less rude also.

        Believe me, we have our fair share of rude people out here but I believe you're correct, New York, especially the City, takes the proverbial cake.

          LA Copper,

          I just received notice I will be starting my field investigation portion of the hiring process. I want to be well prepared for anything I need to submit. Will I need to be getting transcripts, credit reports, or anything that requires me to go out and get or request. I understand the investigator will be going to my current and past employers as well as my current and past residences to conduct interviews with neighbors, family, and coworkers. I just wanted to see what I could do to get a head start and help the process.

            Start ordering your transcripts both college and high school. As far as I know LAPD runs your credit in house. Also make sure you have your birth certificate, social security card, valid driver license, selective service registration, marriage papers if married, or divorce decree if divorced, insurance declaration page, DD214 if you were in the military. LAPD will give you a comprehensive list of what they want, but what I mentioned above is pretty much the basics of what a background investigator needs right off the bat. I was a BI for LASD for 3 years and nothing says unprepared like not having this stuff in time for your meet and greet. Good luck!

          Cruz touched on pretty much everything, just missed the medical stuff. If you take prescription meds, have any ongoing pre-existing medical conditions, or have had any injuries in the past that may appear to inhibit your ability to perform the regular duties of a police officer, then you would need to have any medical related paperwork or doctor's notes.

            Thank you sir. The doctor at my medical didn't mention anything about my medical history. I'll wait to hear from my assigned background investigator to see if they will require any of medical paperwork.

            In the meantime, I'll start gathering all of the information necessary.

          Does anyone know the order of the PFQ events? Trying to simulate the test as accurately as possible when training. Thanks guys.

            I’m trying to finish the process here with LAPD. Actually really impressed by how organized and helpful everyone within personnel is.

            I had to take multiple polygraphs. First one I took I had reactions to 90% of the questions apparently. The detective was super blunt and told me I absolutely bombed it. He more or less told me I probably wouldn’t get a call back from the results. I left pretty disheartened, but I thanked him for his honesty and left.

            A few days later I got a phone call about a retake. I retook the poly and made it through quickly. Just super thankful I passed and can move forward.

              How long after you finished the polygraph did it take for them to schedule your psych evaluation? Do you know if the background investigation must be complete before the psych is scheduled?

            The events are:

            1.Sit ups
            2.Sprint 300m
            3.Push ups
            4.1.5 mile run
            (in that order)

            train with 2 minutes of rest in between. At the actual test they give about 5. It could be less or more depending on how many people take the test with you. Better to prepare for a short rest period.
            Don't underestimate the test. Go all out. Its scored pretty hard compared to other departments. Which is a good thing. You can find the scoring sheet by looking on Google for the LAX police PFQ scoring criteria. They use the same test as LAPD.

            When you train for sit ups, don't rely on your legs too much too pull yourself up to your knees. This will make your legs tired for the sprint. Try to do as many as you can by strictly engaging your core. ..if that makes sense

            The scores are scored by age group. The number of reps you do for each exercise corresponds to a number score. At the end, the 4 scores are added and divided by 4. This is how they get the final percentage. (They require a 50% or better)

            Good luck

              Does anyone have any info on when the next LAPD academy will start? I was told they have a class every 28 days but with the current situation I'm not sure if that's still happening.
              I got my conditional and passed medical/written psych and just waiting for the FI now. I've been following this thread for a while now. Thanks guys

              • O, you are correct, we used to have a class start every month but now because of the current budget issues, classes have been cut back. We just started a a class last month and may have one more by the end of the year. As of now we're scheduled to start more early next year but the way things are going financially, we'll see if that actually happens.

                Either way, we'll have to hire soon because lots of folks will be retiring starting in February plus the Department wants to at least stay near where we are numbers wise because of the upcoming Olympics so stay ready, it could happen at anytime.

                • Hey, I am new to this forum. I am currently waiting for my oral board result. So far, I only know two people receive their results the next day are one in this forum and second from Instagram. How long does it usually take for the agency to get back to you?

                  • Knight, from my experience my oral board was passed and updated in less than 24 hours. How long has it been for you since you've taken yours?

                      I found out two days later. I pass. I flew down to So cal for medical, poly graph and PFQ. I pass poly and the PAT portion. However, I am waiting on the result of my medical. The doc said he was going to DQ because it hasn’t been 2 years from my neck surgery yet. I supplied him with all my surgery docs and docs from CBP. I did the medical part with CBP and was evaluated by my doctor. So hopefully, the doc gives me the green light to move to the next step.

                  • The media is emphasizing probable layoffs of 951 sworn personnel... Interesting, considering the fact, the city has the highest homicide rate in the last decade.

                      From what i have heard is this does not mean that they are going to lay off a literal 951 bodies, instead this means that they won't continue to fill any of those 951 vacancies they have or will have in the future.

                        I'm curious, any word on if they will be doing a hiring freeze?

                    • So I completed all the hiring steps and have been done since October, I have been retaking the PFQ multiple times to try and get as high a score as I can. My score since mid November was a 65%...my most recent one for early December was a 73%...I'm pretty sure I didn't get into the December class as I still have not received a call, hoping for January, do you think the 73% is high enough to guarantee me a seat, besides the PFQ is there anything else I could be doing to get my name higher on the list for a seat? Thanks in advance.
