    I just read an article that said the mayor has proposed a 3% increase for LAPD's budget for the next fiscal year. Hopefully that translates into an a new academy class in the near future.

    I'm just focusing on keeping my application current. During last month's Zoom call for certified candidates they told us that we could redo our PHS 30 days prior to its expiration. However, I was told by a mentor that I could redo the PHS prior to that. So I went ahead and submitted my new PHS even though I had a couple months to go before the current one expired. The new PHS got approved in a couple days. Also, they're doing virtual PFQs for out of state applicants. I just did mine today in Minnesota via Google Meet, and it was pretty straight forward.

    Orientation is not part of the testing process. Once you're accepted and given an academy date, you and members of your family (if it's still not Covid regulated) will be asked to attend an orientation a week before your academy start date. It's basically an informational meeting to tell you and your family what to expect for the next six months of your life.

    The "warbag" is a large canvas duffle type bag you'll need to carry your academy related equipment every day. Keep in mind we have two different academy locations you'll be traveling to each week; ARTC, which is near LAX and Davis, which is the very north end of the San Fernando Valley.

    Once certified, orientation is the last step before you officially start. They'll call you down to Westchester and go over what to expect, what you will need, etc. As per my conversations with recruiters, you will need to buy:

    1. Grey workout clothes. Sweats, shirts, etc

    2. Uniforms (baby blues)

    3. Tie pins, buttons, ties

    4. Bates academy shoes

    5.Patrol Boots

    6. Wrestling shoes

    7. Hats

    8. War bags (I asked for clarification as I am unsure what this means)

    9. Mouth piece or anything else needed for defensive tactics

    10. Shooting bag and equip.

    We just had a seminar for certified candidates and they just mention that they will have academy dates soon and to have every test part up to date. They said once academy starts they will have one every 28 day. I have had advisor say that they might have academy’s June or July so hopefully sooner.

    Yes, you would have to redo any portion of your application that expires. I was certified in December and I'm sure I'll have to do the PHS again because my current one expires in May. My department interview and medical expire in July, so I may have to repeat those also. It all depends on the timing.

    A few people have been saying that they might have an academy date on June/July. Currently I also been waiting for a date since September. I’m at the point where I have to update my PHS and have another department interview in March and my medical again in April. We just have to wait for things to get better from the budget and COVID.

    Garcetti is expected to have his budget finalized by April... which means it's still another month away!
    Do you think they'll have an Academy before the start of the new fiscal year (July 1st). By that point, portions of my application are going to start expiring (department interview and medical).

There are no specifics; just that they "expect the pause to be temporary and for hiring to resume before too long." I guess they got tired of people calling to ask about the date for the next academy.

    On the bright side, it's gives us more time to study and work out.
