  • Dekalb County PD

    Anyone applied here lately? I notice on the website, there is a testing date for June 19th. I applied in October 2007, passed the written and physical and then withdrew because I realized I was still going to be living out of town a bit longer. Anyone know if they are currently hiring or how often they have academies? I think they use to have them maybe twice per year. Good morale? Good training facilites?

    Thanks for any info!

      Morale's on the way back up with the appointment of some new leadership. Training FACILITIES could be better, but the academy staff is good and you'll learn a lot. The outdoor range was re-done several years ago and is reasonably nice.

      You'll hear a lot of mixed things about DKPD on here. It would be untrue to say we haven't had problems over the past few years. However, it can be what you make of it; I've enjoyed my time and have learned a lot. Despite the fools that have made the news, I work with a lot of quality officers.

        Thank you very much for the info. I spoke directly with the main recruiting detective today, and he was very helpful and kind. When I previously applied, the prior recruiting LT was also a great guy, so thus far, I have had nothing but positive experiences with DCPD.

        However, sounds like there will be a new hiring freeze for a bit now. I have such bad luck!

            Why would there be a new hiring freeze?

              The next academy starts July 13. From what I've seen they are actively recruiting new officers.

                  That's what I thought also, and was surprised when he told me that. He indicated that the freezes have been coming and going and to watch the website closely. Well, when I went to the website last night, it still indicated that they were hiring. Perhaps there is just a delay in updating the website.

                    Oops, thanks for the info as usual. That is odd, but I have seen stranger things.

                        I believe it is six months.

                          Flyer2007 did he mention whether or not the hiring freeze was going to affect the the upcoming class start date?

                              I talked to him on Monday and he didn't mention the upcoming class.
