    What is the max age to start with LAPD if you have no leo experience? What is the max age if you have a 1-3 years and want to lateral from out of state?

    @Destiny09:

    You are paid $33.91/hr while in the academy. Base pay and benefits are the same for every recruit officer.

    Lester Marten,

    Thanks for the info!

    I know It will vary from person to person but what's the take home pay more or less in the academy? I completely understand if you don't feel comfortable answering.

    Hello! I had a question, do you know if they usually send academy calls at the end of the week or the beginning of the week?

    We should be helping each other out so I'm happy to do so. Feel free to ask if anyone has other questions.

    Clopez,

    I'm still in backgrounds. I spoke with my BI and was told that my background was complete on her end and will make its way up for approval. Once it's approved, I'll be able to schedule psych then hopefully make the certified list. How about yourself?

    Guys, keep in mind you'll be going back and forth between the two academy sites, the one near LAX (ARTC) and the one in Granada Hills (Davis), which is the far north end of the Valley. Both are just off the 405 Freeway and are about 30 miles apart.

    If I remember correctly, you'll spend about 55% of your time at ARTC and about 45% of your time at Davis. Maybe you can find something close to the 405, just so your commute is easier.

    Generally your start of watch is around 0530, although recruits are usually there by 0500, just to make sure they aren't late. Your end of watch is usually around 1430. That means you usually beat traffic both ways, although nowadays traffic can be found at any time of day. The 405 carpool lane would be a big help if some of you could find a meeting place and carpool together.

    If you haven't already, I suggest you get up early a few mornings and try making the drive to both ARTC and Davis, just so you'll have a better idea of what the drive will be like once you're in the academy. The last thing you want to do is be late, that wouldn't be good. Same thing for the drive home, although that's not as important as the drive in since you won't have a DI waiting for you at home.........

    Fyi, At Davis, you'll be doing Tactics, Shooting, and EVOC. At ARTC, you'll be doing PT, Self Defense stuff, and academics. (The fun stuff is at Davis!)
    Damn this thread is crazy helpful and I'm not even in the process. I got some help from a forum member for the academy and department I am starting in Oct but La cooper is giving a wealth of info. You guys are lucking out. Glad I subscribed!

    Destiny09,
    Just curious, are you already certified and just waiting for an academy date?

    Sloan2013,

    My written exam was set to expire in 20 days. I applied online in order to receive the code needed for the MC test but haven't taken the test yet. I checked 2 days ago and it was changed to 199 days left to expire and hasn't been changed back as of today....I'm sure it's a glitch of some sort but not sure??

    Bluelagoon,

    It would be easier to reside around the academy then commuting back and fourth. Which county do you live in? How far along are you in the background process?

    This happened to me too. I thought it meant I was disqualified from the process. I guess not!

    Anyone else having a glitch on their LAPD portal where it's not showing anything checked off anymore in the 7 steps and the status check section shows not set?
